Data Acquisition

Simple Integration and Expandability

Versatile Interfaces for Comprehensive Data Acquisition

The DIN rail IPC has numerous interfaces that enable flexible and comprehensive data acquisition. With Ethernet and USB ports, the IPC can be easily integrated into existing networks to collect data from various sensors and measuring devices. The support for CAN / CANOpen allows connection to industrial communication systems, while wireless data transmission via 2G or LTE is particularly advantageous for mobile applications.

RS232 and RS485 ports are also available for direct connection to industrial peripherals. These interfaces enable the integration of classic measuring devices and control systems, making the top-hat rail IPC a flexible solution for a wide range of measuring tasks.

Compact, Powerful and Reliable

In modern industrial automation, precise and reliable data acquisition plays a crucial role. The DIN rail IPC, a Linux single-board computer based on the ARM® Cortex™-A8 architecture in a compact DIN rail housing, offers an innovative and versatile solution for this purpose. Its powerful and energy-efficient design makes the IPC ideal for both stationary and mobile data acquisition applications.

Sustainable and Endurable Platform

The DIN rail IPC is supplied with the Ångström base system as standard, but also supports other Linux distributions with ARMv7 support, such as Debian or Poky. This ensures a high degree of flexibility and adaptability to specific measurement data acquisition requirements. Thanks to the broad support provided by Linux, the IPC is not only sustainable but also future-proof, as it can be regularly supplied with updates and improvements.

Modular System Structure

An outstanding feature of the top-hat rail IPC is its simple integration and expandability. By using a CAN-based DIN rail bus (CH20M DIN rail bus), the cabling of several modules can be greatly simplified. This reduces the cabling effort and increases the reliability of the measurement data acquisition systems. In addition, the modular design of the system enables a simple performance upgrade by replacing the processor module, so that the IPC can be adapted to growing requirements.

Edge and Cloud Integration

As an edge gateway, the DIN rail IPC offers the option of processing measurement data directly at the source and analysing it in real time before it is transferred to the cloud. This ability to process data in advance reduces latency times and relieves the burden on centralised data processing. In combination with the pironex IoT cloud and the associated app for iOS and Android, users receive a comprehensive device management tool. This tool offers numerous visualisations and enables efficient monitoring and management of the recorded measurement data.

Consumption Data Acquisition

for Electricity, Water, Heating, Air Conditioning

wM-Bus advantages

A wireless M-Bus gateway transmits up to 500 consumption values from water meters, heat meters and heating cost destributors with an 868 MHz (OMS) wireless interface to downstream systems at low cost. The pironex-IoT portal serves as a data collector and as an evaluation platform for the measured values. All encrypted and decrypted consumption data is made available in the IoT platform. The billing company accesses its data via remote maintenance via download or e-mail.

Data Transmission

The wM-Bus Gateway receives wireless M-Bus protocols, filters them as required, stores them and sends them encrypted to a server. The gateway uses existing networks or a mobile data connection for this purpose. The gateway sends the received and filtered data to the server either immediately, hourly, daily or monthly. External services or billing systems can receive and process the consumption values prepared and decrypted from the pironex-iot.de platform via standard APIs (MQTT, REST, HTTP-Push). Direct integration without this platform is possible.

wM-Bus Communication

The wireless M-Bus (wM-Bus) is the wireless version of the wired M-Bus system (meter-Bus). It is standardized in the European standard EN 13757-4 and is suitable for battery-powered devices. The wireless connections work unidirectional and bidirectional and transmit the data from the sensors to the actuators or the meter readings of smart meters.

Remotely Readable Collective Meters

The gateway works with all 868 MHz wireless / OMS water meters, heat meters, heating cost allocators from various manufacturers according to:

- wMbus S1 & C1 & T1 mode (868MHz)
- EN 13757-4
- OMS v3 and v4
- Sensus RF (Bubble Up)

From October 25th, 2020, only readable meters and heat cost allocators may be installed!

Smart Open Metering System

The Open Metering System (OMS) stands for a cross-manufacturer and cross-sector communication architecture for intelligent meters based on the M-Bus (fieldbus) as part of smart metering. It is the only system definition in the world that integrates all media (electricity, gas, heat and water including submetering) into one system.
