Application Areas

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the ubiquitous network of physical objects/devices or "things" embedded with electronics and connectivity in order to achieve greater value and services by exchanging data with the respective manufacturers, operators or other connected devices. Various studies predict large growth rates for the Internet of Things in the coming years. Innovative wireless technologies, which are also energy-saving, make a significant contribution to this development. Würth Elektronik eiSos provides device manufacturers with wireless technologies based on several RF standards and frequency bands, which are suitable for IoT networking. The application areas are versatile: Wearables, Connected Home, environmental monitoring, infrastructure management, manufacturing, Smart Metering, medical/healthcare systems, building automation, transportation and large scale deployments and many more.

Monitoring & Control

Remote monitoring, remote control and wireless data collection have a great impact on businesses these days. Sensors can gather data from assets and business processes. A wireless sensor network consists of a multitude of autonomous devices with integrated sensors to monitor physical or environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, vibration or pollution. Each device/sensor node is linked up with the computing centre by means of radio data communication. Wireless-enabled sensor nodes can now easily be installed in spots where a wired system was not an option before such as in moving or rotating assets.

Typical applications are industrial process control, asset tracking, fleet management, logistics, energy control, agriculture, water and waste management, alarm and security management, irrigation Control, environmental conditions (light, temperature, humidity, wind speed, water level), pollution Monitoring, traffic flow monitoring, food temperature control and others. 

Würth Elektronik eiSos provides a variety of ready-made wireless ISM modules for rapid integration, complete wireless software stacks vor various RF chips and microcontrollers and custom design services for telemetry / sensor network applications to OEMs and system integrators.

Automated Meter Reading

Automated Meter Reading is a technology for automated data collection from energy/water metering devices and others for billing and analyzing purposes. Standard systems divide themselves into two categories: fixed meter reading networks and drive-by/walk-by networks.

The benefits deriving from RF technology are tremendous. Companies save plenty of money due to enhanced speed of data reading and less chance of lacking data due to missing meter access.

Wireless M-Bus according to EN13757:4. This standard specifies the communication between water, gas, heat and electricity meters or concentrators and it is becoming widely accepted in Europe as a basis for new Smart Metering / Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) installations. In addition, there exist various specifications on top of the standard, such as the OMS (Open Metering System) in Germany that should ensure the interoperability of metering devices between multiple manufacturers. AMBER wireless is an active member of the OMS group, helping to create the specification.

Würth Elektronik eiSos provides a wide range of OEM wireless modules to be integrated in meters, smart meter gateways, mobile data collection terminals and data loggers. We also offer out-of-the box communication adapters that turn meter devices with wired interface into a wireless M-Bus-enabled device. All our products comply with the Wireless M-Bus standard.
