Carlo Gavazzi offers long-range wireless solutions
Controls and automation specialist, Carlo Gavazzi has launched a long-range wireless solution for energy monitoring. The UWP-A and UWP-M reduces installation costs and avoids expensive cablings for energy efficiency monitoring projects and provides a solution for applications where a traditional cabled network is unsuitable.
The UWP-A is an endpoint adapter which provides long range (up to 10 km) communication to Carlo Gavazzi energy meters and power analyzers. It integrates into the standard LoRaWAN protocol. This is designed for wide area networks and allows low-powered devices to communicate with internet-connected applications over long-range wireless connections.
These can be private networks (gateways) or public networks in smart cities. Many operators provide access to wireless LoRaWAN networks, covering cities or entire countries. The UWP-A is key to collection of metering data through these networks, for a hassle-free deployment of distributed networks over large areas.
The UWP-M master module makes it easy to create a wireless network of UWP-A based endpoints and integrates into the Carlo Gavazzi’s UWP monitoring gateway and controller.
Using EU868 MHz band, a license and cost-free frequency, the UWP-A enables fast configuration, making it easy for installers to set up a secure and reliable wireless network of meters. Simple connection to the UWP universal web controller through the UWP-M gateway, provides collection of vital data without the need for any SIM cards or additional costs.
