Overview

The Advantech WISE-2410SK-NA Starter Kit includes a WISE-2410 vibration sensor, a WISE-6610 LoRaWAN gateway, a magnetic base, and two batteries. This kit is designed with an Arm Cortex-M4 processor, a LoRa transceiver, a 3-axis accelerometer, and a temperature sensor, aimed at enhancing data transmission efficiency across LoRaWAN networks. The WISE-6610 gateway can then further transfer the data to a cloud server for analysis. 

WISE-2410SK-NA Starter Kit Features

Star Network Topology for Communication

WISE-2410SK-NA Starter Kit facilitates efficient data relay between sensor nodes and the application server, utilizing a star network topology. Reliable data transmission is enabled by utilizing the LoRa physical layer to facilitate communication between sensors and the gateway. For the gateway-to-server connection, both an IP-based network and the Modbus protocol are supported, providing flexibility and efficiency.

Onboard Computing Capabilities

The inclusion of an Arm Cortex-M4 processor allows the WISE-2410SK-NA Starter Kit to perform complex data processing tasks directly on the device. It can calculate various metrics such as VRMS, ARMS, Peak, Displacement, Kurtosis, Crest Factor, Skewness, and Standard Deviation. This local processing capability reduces the data processing burden on the gateway and cloud services, streamlining the overall data management process.

Durability and Battery Life

The WISE-2410SK-NA Starter Kit is designed with an IP66 protection rating, making it suitable for a variety of Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN) applications, including monitoring systems for pumps, HVAC systems, motors, and other facilities. It features a battery life of up to two years with an hourly data update interval, supported by two 3.6V AA batteries and efficient LPWAN technology.

Ease of Installation

The device supports plug-and-play installation, simplifying the setup process. It also connects to Advantech’s WISE Studio Utility, facilitating an efficient installation process for users.

Getting Started with WISE-2410SK-NA Starter Kit

Follow these steps to get started with the Starter Kit:
