RS-232/RS-485 Communication over Wireless Mesh by M2C

Let us you introduce you to one of our spanish partners, a Start-Up company called “Machine to Cloud Solutions” ( http://www.m2c-solutions.es ) aka M2C.

Machine To Cloud creates M2M solutions for diferent industrial sectors

M2C has created a nice solution to remotely manage industrial equipment with a wired RS-232/RS-485 interface over a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) connected to the cloud via a gateway. This solution can be used in several scenarios:

  • Wireless reading multiple smart meters, etc.
  • Control of industrial equipment and machines.
  • Wireless communication with SCADA systems.

Wireless Sensor Network used to control equipment over serial cables and routed to Carriots Cloud

The solution is composed of the following elements:

  • RS-232/RS-485 to Mesh device, attached to the energy meter, and able to route data between nodes to a gateway.
  • Gateway or hub with information gathering capabilities, connected to the Internet via Ethernet or GSM mobile network.
  • Platform As A Service (PAaS) solution provided by Carriots, specifically designed for M2M and IoT solutions. Carriots offers a highly available cloud platform used to monitor, control and configure the wireless devices.
