Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) remote monitoring company Ayyeka has announced the launch of the next generation of its Wavelet wireless telemetry device. The Wavelet is an IIoT edge device that autonomously operates industrial sensors, allowing operators to collect real-time information about the condition of dispersed assets including water, wastewater, oil and gas, and environmental infrastructure.
The device adds full 4G (LTE) connectivity and dual SIM card support to the long list of technologies that it supports which includes all other GSM-based networks as well as Sigfox and LoRa. It will allow operators to generate sensor data from “virtually anywhere on the planet serviced by a cellular or LPWAN communications network,” according to Ayyeka CEO Ariel Stern.
Further additions included in the new release include an advanced LED-based Visual Device Status Indication System (VDSIS) that will provide field crews with detailed diagnostic information about the device’s operating state. The upgraded Wavelet also features a cutting-edge battery reporting mechanism which delivers accurate lifetime predictions to users monitoring Wavelet fleets. The feature compares favorably with those encountered in consumer devices. Automatic external/internal antenna switching has also been added to guarantee that the devices maintain the strongest possible reception at all times.
Some of Wavelet’s applications include H2S monitoring for wastewater collection networks, obtaining pressure and chlorine readings in drinking water networks, and sampling air quality in localities close to mining operations. According to Ayyeka Senior Product Manager Tal Avrahami, whose team led the development efforts: “the similarities between this Wavelet and anything we’ve produced previously start and stop at the device enclosure.” Avrahami described the latest device as “an entirely different beast on the inside.”
