Setting Up a Sensor Network with the Analog Expansion Hub AEH-100

AEH-100, an analog expansion hub from BinMaster, has been designed to ease the setup of a sensor network. It offers an easy solution by connecting analog sensors to a BinCloud gateway which provides access to software via the Cloud.

The AEH-100 can ideally be used to upgrade a prevailing sensor system to a Cloud-based network. It enables scalability when linking analog devices to one BinCloud® gateway. This supports hundreds of hubs linked to a single client or gateway. The AEH-100 is used to accept analog inputs from sensors that can be read by a client through TCP or RS-485.

Applications

  • Inventory can be monitored using BinView® software
  • An existing system can be upgraded to the Cloud
  • Up to 16 analog sensors can be connected to BinCloud® through the BinCloud® gateway
  • The AEH-100 can be daisy-chained to the BinCloud® gateway through RS-485
  • Costs can be controlled by eliminating hardware and subscription costs
