ATLANTA Cirronet, Inc.introduced the latest in its low-cost, low-power miniMESH™ and VersaMESH™ product lines of wireless sensor network modules. miniMESH and VersaMESH wireless sensor network modules connect a wide range of devices and machines to the Internet and are utilized in small to large networks with several hundred to several thousand field nodes.
DM1810 moduleComprised of versatile OEM modules operating in the 434 and 916 MHz unlicensed bands, the miniMESH and VersaMESH wireless sensor network modules complement Cirronet’s ZigBee™ and 802.15.4 products operating in 2.4 GHz unlicensed bands for applications that require long-life operation on batteries for long-range or multi-site wireless sensor network applications.
The miniMESH DM1810 and VersaMESH DM2200 are ideal for applications needing long battery life with their ability to sleep the entire network and their stingy active current consumption, even when transmitting at a full 10mW of RF power. Achieving ranges of up to 600 meters per hop, both the miniMESH DM1810 and the VersaMESH DM2200 provide self-healing wireless mesh networks that support mobile nodes with coverage areas in the many thousands of square meters.
DM2200 module Supporting 1023 nodes with 15 mesh routers, the miniMESH DM1810 is well suited for small to medium size applications such as agricultural, warehouse, and retail applications covering up to 50,000 square meters. The miniMESH technology has been field proven for more than a decade. The VersaMESH DM2200, with support for up to 65,000 nodes, can handle virtually any size wireless sensor network.
Both the miniMESH DM1810 and VersaMESH DM2200 provide analog and digital inputs to allow direct connection to sensors. The VersaMESH DM2200 also provides a unique pulse counting mode, facilitating its use in meter reading applications. Coupled with a wide operating voltage range, both DM Mesh families are ideal for integration into battery-powered sensor applications.
Developer Kits are available for both the miniMESH DM1810 and VersaMESH DM2200 to speed product development. For wireless sensor network applications requiring more network nodes, Pro Developer Kits are also available which provide additional nodes and interface boards. Cirronet’s Developer Kits and OEM modules are available now in the U.S. from Avnet Memec, Digi-Key, Mouser Electronics, Nu Horizons and Richardson. Customers outside the U.S. can buy them through ACAL and Nu Horizons.
