RADIO UNITS FOR MEASURING INSTRUMENTS

With our modern NETRIS radio units and IIoT gateways, your existing measuring instruments become network-capable and can communicate via the following standard interfaces:

  • Analogue: 4 … 20 mA
  • Analogue: 0.5 … 4.5 V ratiometric
  • Analogue & digital: RTD
  • Digital: ModBus®

These are compatible with established wireless technologies such as LoRaWAN®, mioty, NB-IOT or LTM-M.

As a founding member of the mioty alliance, WIKA supports the innovative LPWAN standard and helps customers set up a private LoRaWAN® network with LORIOT servers or other hosts.

Cloud

Cloud_On_Premise_en-co

CUSTOMISED DATA PROCESSING

IIoT cloud solution: The WIKA IIoT cloud enables device management, data acquisition, data storage, and the creation of an application-specific digital twin. The generic device manager detects and decodes data from wireless instruments – quickly, securely, and reliably. This instrument data is recorded and stored in the databases in accordance with the digital twin of the customer system, where it is available to the application-specific forecasting algorithms. With appropriate authorisation, both internal and external applications, can access this data via a secure API backend layer.

On-premise IIoT solution: If you prefer a stand-alone solution, WIKA will install all the necessary components at your location to implement a self-sufficient system. WIKA's IIoT cloud and on-premise solutions are continuously improved and developed to ensure that your valuable data remains available and protected at all times.
