Thingworx - Internet of Things Platform

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a new world, with unique challenges for developers, enterprises, and end-users alike as they seek to create, deploy, and integrate IoT technologies and solutions. When enterprises make the decision to implement an IoT strategy, they are entering unchartered territory. Conventional development methods and technologies are rendered ineffective, and they must establish a new technology infrastructure. A ready-built IoT platform provides a seamless approach to rapidly create comprehensive, feature-rich IoT solutions and speed time to insight – critical to the success of industrial IoT implementations.

Thingworx - The IoT Platform

The ThingWorx platform includes compatible modules that deliver the functionality, flexibility, and agility enterprises need to implement industrial IoT apps and AR experiences. This includes industrial connectivity, analytics, application enablement, orchestration and augmented reality authoring. 

Thingworx delivers:

Purpose-built Platform for Industrial IoT: The platform contains specific functionality designed with the scalability and security to grow as the business expands. 

Rapid Development, Deployment, and Extension: Integral platform modules come together via the Thing Model – the true digital representation of a physical object – enabling apps and experiences to be delivered quickly and easily.

Ultimate Flexibility: Platform can be deployed in the cloud, on premise, or a hybrid of the two. Apps and experiences are made available to users in multiple formats –desktop, web, mobile, and augmented reality. Integration with external data sources simplifies processes and ensures more meaningful results .

Vibrant Ecosystem: ThingWorx partner ecosystem offers one of the world’s largest networks of IoT-focused companies, and ThingWorx partners offer a wide range of products and services that simplify, accelerate, or enhance processes and strategies for industrial IoT .

Why use an IoT platform

Building IoT solutions are difficult and complex enough, why create an entire platform. With Thingworx an organization automatically gets the head start it needs to become competitive very quickly. The return on investment is significantly increased, time to market drastically reduced, and skills needed are easier to find.

"If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants."
Isaac Newton

In this day and age, technology is rapidly evolving, when looking for a technology partner an organisation needs to consider the company behind the product. PTC  are true innovators, they are always looking for ways to support their customers and partners.

Sensor Probes

Change sensor probes in just seconds

Sensor probes can be attached easily just by screwing them into the bottom sockets. This allows you to add new sensing capabilities to existing networks in just minutes.

In the same way, sensor probes may be easily replaced in order to ensure the lowest maintenance cost of the sensor network.

 
Solar Powered
External and Internal Solar Panel

The battery can be recharged using the internal or external solar panel options (common USB-recharging is, of course, another option).

 

The external solar panel is mounted on a 45º holder which ensures the maximum performance of each outdoor installation.

 

For the internal option, the solar panel is embedded on the front of the enclosure, perfect for use where space is a major challenge.

 

The rechargeable battery has a load of 6600 mAh, which ensures non stop working time during the weeks where the sunlight is lower.

 
Installation
External and Internal Solar Panel

Waspmote Plug & Sense! comes with holders specially designed for outdoor installations in street-lights and building fronts.

Metal cable ties are provided to easily adjust the node to street light posts.

 

Installation can be done in minutes as you only need to tie the cables on the enclosure holders and then to the post. Once the node is secured just press the on button and the node will start to automatically send the data gathered from the sensors to the Gateway.

 
Radio Frequencies
High sensitivity and transmission power

There are multiple radio options in order to communicate the sensor nodes with the Gateway. 802.15.4, 868 and 900 are used commonly in order to create local, start topologies. WiFi can be used to connect to any WiFi AP while the 4G radio can be used to send the sensor data directly to the Cloud without using an intermediate Gateway. Sigfox and LoRaWAN modules are special for IoT applications and get very long range links.

802.15.4 (2.4Ghz) Europe and World

RF (868 Mhz)

RF (900 Mhz) US, Brazil and Australia

WiFi (2.4 Ghz)

4G, Europe/Brazil, USA , Australia

Sigfox: Europe and USA

LoRaWAN: Europe and USA

Geolocation Tracking + Sensing
Real-time tracking applications

The 4G module features a GPS receiver which allows to easily perform real-time tracking applications.

 

 

 

 

The idea is simple: read the GPS coordinates (longitude and latitude) and send them by using an HTTP request to a web server along with extra information from the sensors included in the node. Then use a browser to load the PHP webpage which uses Google Maps to show the location in real-time.

 
 
Industrial Protocols

Plug & Sense! units are able to connect with the most common industrial communication protocols: RS-232, RS-485, Modbus, 4-20 mA (current loop) and CAN Bus.

 

This feature opens a wide variety of applications for industrial sensing and automation, military, automobile, vehicle tracking or remote factory management.

Connect your industrial devices to Plug & Sense!

Typical use cases:

All sensors connection to Industrial Bus

Add wireless connectivity to wired bus

Connect Industrial devices to the Cloud

 
External SIM Sockets
Choose your own Mobile Network Operator

Plug & Sense! models with 4G radio have an External SIM socket which allows developers to easily add and change a carrier SIM card in order to connect the devices to any 4G / 3G / GPRS / GSM cellular network.

 
Certifications
Libelium Sensors are ready for most markets

Plug & Sense! is the first IoT sensor platform to be fully certified:

CE ( Europe)

FCC (USA)

IC (Canada)

ANATEL (Brazil)

RCM (Australia)
