Steute presents the newest version of the Wireless network solution "Nexy". It enables the transfer of sensor data to the Internet of Things (IoT) or other higher-level IT systems. Different sensors and electromechanical switching devices as well as actuators and operating systems can be integrated into this wireless network solution.
They send and receive data via the radio standard "Swave.net", which was developed for exactly this application. Access points collect the data from the wireless sensors and actuators and transmit them to a sensor bridge, which, as a service manager, transfers the data to the user's higher-level IT systems. This results in consistent communication from the shop floor to the management levels of corporate IT. A modern dashboard takes care of the clear status visualization of all devices connected to the network.
Characteristic for the Nexy software is the simple adaptation to individual requirements. Appropriate solutions are already available for applications such as e-Kanban or FTS fleets. Another key feature is the openness of the network solution. This considerably extends the deployment and expansion options of the wireless network.
In the latest version, all connected Swave.net field devices can receive new firmware updates via radio. The updates are then deployed to the Sensor Bridge and distributed on the local network. This means that all devices can be kept up to date with the latest software without much effort. In addition, the user can automatically save the current configuration of the Sensor Bridge and thus the entire configuration of the wireless network to an FTP drive. In addition, the Sensor Bridge now also communicates with the user's SAP system via an additional SAP connector.
