The BeanGateway ModBus is used to build and manage Beanair wireless sensor network. It can manage queues for every network element (BeanDevice). As a gateway, it controls the external access to the network through a highly secured authentication procedure. It supports the conversion of data exchanged, compression and IP connectivity with the network thereby reducing the intelligence required in these platforms, maintenance and therefore the associated cost.
The BeanGateway ModBus operates with an external power supply (DC 8-28V). An integrated rechargeable battery is used as an UPS battery (uninterruptible power supply). The internal battery provides instantaneous protection from external power supply interruptions, the wireless sensor network & Ethernet LAN activities are maintained during this time.
