The new modules support the most widely used industrial communication network protocols such as RS-232, RS-485, CAN Bus, and Modbus, used for process as varied as industrial automation, building automation and automobile applications, for sensor network capability in remote or factory floor environments. In conjunction with the new modules, it is also possible to connect 4-20 mA sensors (current loop), the most commonly deployed in industrial environments.
|Connect any sensor to an existing industrial bus (RS-485 in this kit)||It can be configured to work as a node in the network, inserting sensor data into the industrial bus already present|
|Add wireless connectivity to wired buses||It can be configured to read the information coming from the bus and send it to Sphere using any of the wireless radio modules available (802.15.4 in this kit)|
|Connect industrial devices to the Cloud||It can be configured to read the information coming from the bus and send it directly to the Cloud using 4G or WiFi radio modules (not present in this kit). Additionally, Sphere offers different cloud connectors that flow data directly to cloud platforms.|
