Wzzard – B&B Electronics

Key Features:

Wzzard™ intelligent wireless sensor platform creates a complete, quick and easy connectivity stack between your sensors and your application, on your network or on the Internet. The platform uses Intelligent Edge Nodes, a wireless 802.15.4e SmartMesh IP network to transmit sensor data to the Spectre Network Gateway. The Spectre Network Gateway can connect to the Internet via wired connections or the cellular data networks and communicate with application platforms using the MQTT IoT protocol and JSON data formats.

The Wzzard Intelligent Edge Nodes nodes accommodate virtually any industrystandard external sensors. Connections can be made via conduit fitting, cable gland or an M12 connector. The Nodes provide a wide variety of sensor interface options, including general purpose analog inputs, digital input/output and thermocouple. They can also contain internal sensors like an accelerometer, depending upon the model number.
All 802.15.4e Wzzard Intelligent Edge Nodes contain an internal temperature sensor.

• Ultra low power 802.15.4e SmartMesh IP technology
• Communicates with Spectre Network Gateway via highly scalable and reliable wireless mesh networks
• Connect to industry standard analog or digital sensors
• Wzzard app lets you read or configure the nodes using Android tablets and smart phones
• Rugged, IP66-rated, fiber reinforced polyester PBT enclosure
• MQTT and JSON IoT protocol to application platform
• Class 1 DIV 2 approved for hazardous locations
