iQunet > A Complete System

A complete system

The iQunet sensors are designed for use in a system consisting of the following components:

iQunet Sensors

Monitor asset health with a continuously growing range of powerful wireless connected iQunet sensors.

 

iQunet Base Station

Connect an unlimited number of iQunet sensors.

 

iQunet Repeater

Extend the reach of iQunet wireless sensors for even greater coverage.

 

iQunet Actuator

Extend the reach of iQunet wireless sensors and create in-plant warnings with direct impact.

 

iQunet Small-format Unix Server

Make your own data work for you anywhere. Compute “in the edge” not in the cloud for ongoing data capturing, even when disconnected from the network.

 

iQunet Web-based Wireless Sensor Dashboard

Connect to the iQunet Unix Server from anywhere, follow-up live data, and change sensor settings remotely.

 

iQunet OPC UA Embedded Server

Collect plant data and share it reliably and securely within your enterprise.

 

iQunet Export Facilities

Create sample reports in a second and review them in Sheets or Excel.

 

iQunet GraphQL APIs

The fully documented iQunet APIs give you the power to get the exact data you demand. Powerful developer tools help you to tailor the data to your needs.

 

iQunet Node-RED facilitation

Use the Node-RED programming tool to connect iQunet hardware devices and create online services in new and interesting ways. You can also build stunning dashboards from sensor data.

 

iQunet partnerships

Export the data you have collected on the iQunet Server into third-party monitoring software and industry-standard cloud platforms. Use the iQunet partnerships with leading industries to analyze your data in applications such as:

Siemens MindSphere
Siemens XTools
SKF Observer
Prüftechnik Omnitrend

Wireless Battery-Operated Sensors

iQunet introduces a major breakthrough in wireless, battery-operated sensors and network technology to manage assets in industry and buildings. iQunet’s easy-fit sensors measure physical machine parameters (such as bearing vibration, temperature, proximity, rotation, humidity, inclination, and others). There are many benefits for your business including:

 

  • Reduced costs thanks to simple equipment enabling powerful asset health monitoring
  • Increased efficiency through the follow-up of status trends
  • Improved productivity from automatically generated usage data
  • Enhanced customer service with condition-based maintenance scheduling
  • Increased competitiveness through remote access and diagnostics

Robust and secure wireless system

 

The wireless and battery-operated iQunet sensors can be mounted on machines, rotating equipment, and other important assets within an industrial plant, or on walls inside work and livings spaces. A network, which navigates around obstacles and through walls, is formed automatically by the sensors.

A small DIN-rail mounted Unix server continuously analyzes and optimizes the network to create the most efficient paths and to balance the load across available paths.

The Base Station is the central node of the wireless network and can easily be attached to the wall or cabinet with the accompanying clips. It is powered by a standard micro-USB connection from the small iQunet DIN-rail Unix server. It can serve an unlimited number of sensor nodes within the wireless range due to the powerful iQunet network protocol.

Key advantages of the iQunet network communication protocol are:

  • Reliability: even in the presence of interference, the network provides 99.9% end-to-end reliability in challenging radio environments.
  • Security and privacy: network communications are secured through industry-standard authentication, encryption, and verification practices to ensure the highest level of security.
  • Effective power management: extreme low power consumption assuring long battery life.

Intelligent sensors

iQunet intelligent sensors have a microcontroller onboard and run innovative and outstanding stable embedded firmware. The iQunet optimized wireless protocol is based on the most recent standards to reduce communication overheads to a minimum, while maximizing data payload. Thanks to the ‘iQunet sleep mode’ current consumption is extremely low (<1µA) resulting in an outstanding battery life time of many years.

All sensors can be triggered wireless or set in burst mode at a programmable interval. All sensors return data including device temperature, signal strength within the wireless sensor network, battery power status, and current firmware and hardware version which guarantees seamless compatibility with later versions.

Easy installation and configuration

Industrial sensors are mounted using an M3 screw and epoxy adhesive between the sensor back and the machine surface. This keeps the antenna area free and allows access to the battery compartments. The network components and building sensors can be easily clipped to a cabinet or wall, providing maximum installation flexibility.

As soon as the batteries are inserted, the sensor is activated and makes contact with the nearest Base Station. Starting the web-based Wireless Sensor Dashboard enables you to address, rename, manage, and tune sensors. You can also schedule them to start collecting measurement data.

 

All information is gathered in the local database of the DIN-rail mounted iQunet Unix Server and fully open addressable via the OPC UA embedded server.

The very intuitive web-based Wireless Sensor Dashboard software can process user requests for ‘live’ data. It can also export the data to third-party analytical software or to Sheets or Excel for quick analysis.
