The kit incorporates cloud-based connectivity and uses the latest GNSS and LTE technology to provide real-time positioning data
It is expected that by 2023, the number of global cellular IoT subscribers will increase to a great extent as machine-to-machine devices drive demand for global network connections. To meet the rising demand, speed to market is critical. Even experienced developers and integrators can benefit from solutions that provide the hardware, software, firmware, connectivity, and cloud-based services that reduce time-to-market.
To help developers and integrators fast track the process, the S-2CONNECT Pro Tracking and Monitoring Kit features has been launched by TT Electronics for rapid IoT development. The kit can be deployed to connect, track, sense, and monitor applications such as asset tracking, cold chain, smart home and broader industrial IoT scenarios.
The kit includes the S-2CONNECT Hub and S-2CONNECT Sense device, which incorporate temperature, humidity, light and acceleration sensors. An embedded SIM with three months of cellular connectivity, a data package of 25MB per month and a power supply with interchangeable blades for global use are also included.
The Pro Kit allows access to cloud-based services including database, MQTT broker, microservices and firmware hosting. Access to the user interface for managing device configuration, provisioning and monitoring is offered exclusively by the S-2CONNECT Portal.
Leverages Latest IoT Connectivity Options
LTE-M and NB-IoT are designed explicitly for the Internet of Things. Therefore, they offer excellent connectivity options for industries looking to take advantage of LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Networks) technology. They enhance the battery life of devices and connect devices that have previously been hard to reach. With connected products, manufacturers can extend their customer relationships far beyond the assembly line.
S-2CONNECT Hub uses the latest GNSS and LTE technology to provide real-time positioning data and transmission of that data over LTE Cat M1 or NB-IoT with 2G-fallback for global coverage. The Hub serves as the gateway for the S-2CONNECT Sense device.
S-2CONNECT Sense is a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) device designed to record temperature, humidity, light and impact data, and then transfer it to the nearest S-2CONNECT Hub. The Sense supports 256kB/8MB memory/flash and ARM Cortex M4 processor.
Global cellular connectivity is provided in collaboration with Telenor Connexion and is included in the first three months of use in the kit package. Cellular subscription can be extended as required through TT Electronics.
The S-2CONNECT Pro Tracking and Monitoring Kit is available to buy now through Mouser.
