Description

Industrial IoT Wireless RS232 Modem

Our long range wireless enterprise series sensors are an easy to use and reliable start to any data aggregation application. This video will demonstrate how they work, what they do, and how to use them.

Industrial IoT Wireless RS232 Modem

Connect to the entire NCD wireless sensor ecosystem to your PC or industrial computer using the NCD Wireless RS232 Modem.  This Industrial IoT Wireless RS232 Modem makes it easy to communicate with NCD wireless sensors using RS232/Serial communications.  Simply plug it in and open the serial port.  Sensor data will start streaming in from all sensors within wireless reach.  With a 2-Mile range (line of sight), this device operates at 900MHz for deep penetration through trees, foliage, and even some buildings.  With integrated Mesh networking, this device also acts as a repeater for sensor data.  Designed to work with any operating system that supports COM communications.  This RS232 modem was designed for indoor use only.  Includes a 12VDC Power Supply and 6′ DB9 Male to Female RS-232 Serial Extension Cable.  Node-Red is currently supported with this device, making it easy to build dashboards of NCD wireless sensors. For indoor use only.

What Frequency Do I Need?

During purchase, you will see three frequency options.  Not all options are legal for use in all areas, so it’s important to make the right selection during purchase.  We will build your product and accessories based on the options chosen.  Here, we will explain these options in much greater detail, but please check your local laws BEFORE purchase.

900MHz for North America (U.S., Canada, and Mexico)

If you are located in North America, the 900MHz Option will provide the longest range currently supported with the best penetration through walls, buildings, industrial equipment, and trees.  This option is also the best choice for long range applications.  The official Line of Sight rating for this option is 2 Miles with included antennas or 28 Miles with high-gain antennas.  We suggest contacting Digi.com for a high-gain antenna recommendation if required.  Please check your local laws before choosing this option.

868MHz for Europe Only

If you are located in Europe, the 868MHz Option is the only legal choice available at this time. This option offers better penetration through walls, builds, trees, and industrial equipment that 2.4GHz. The official line of site rating for this option is 14.5km using 2.1dBi antennas. Please check your local laws before choosing this option.

2.4Ghz for Worldwide Use (Except Europe)

The 2.4GHz option should be chosen if 900MHz and 868MHz are not legal for use in your country. Please note this particular module is NOT LEGAL for use in Europe, as it has a higher transmission power than is legally allowed at 2.4GHz. This option is certified for use in the United States, Japan, Australia, Brazil, and South Korea. Please check your local laws before choosing this option.

Not Sure?

If you are unsure of which sensor option to choose, please contact us.  We may be able to help determine which sensors are legal for use in your area.

Compatibility

Requires a 12VDC Power Supply (Included with Purchase).  For indoor use only.

This device is compatible with X-CTU, Also Supporting Firmware Updates and Advanced Settings of Wireless Communications Module (digi.com).

This device operates at 900MHz/868MHz and 2.4GHz and converts raw sensor data into raw serial data .  Compatible with Alpha Station https://ncd.io/alpha

Wireless Communication OptionsChange

Please choose a wireless communications module that is legal for use in your region.  Please note: transmission range will be affected by the product options selected below.  If you are in North America, we strongly suggest the 900MHz option for best results.  If you are in Europe, the 868MHz version is the only legal option.  The 2.4GHz option is certified for use in the United States, Australia, Brazil, Japan, and South Korea.  Please note the 2.4GHz version will not penetrate objects as well as the 900MHz and 868MHz versions.  If you need help choosing a wireless option, please contact us.  This option will determine how we build this product and any applicable accessories that may be displayed below.

Customize

We Customize Just for You!!

NCD offers many custom IoT electronic design services to help tailor our product to your exact needs.  Whether you are looking for custom firmware, circuit board modifications, metal enclosures, or industrial color printing, we can help you with a wide variety of design services.

Custom IoT Electronic Design Services Process

Most of our users purchase off-the-shelf hardware for initial testing.  Once everything is working, they contact us to build a custom solution which may include specialized changes to the board, firmware, connectors, etc.  Custom boards have many advantages such as reduced wiring, easy installation, small size, less power consumption, and in some cases, an overall reduction in product cost.  Custom IoT Electronic Design Services will have your company name and logo on the board as well as the enclosure.

Customized IoT Electronics

NCD engineers can help build a customized solution for your particular application based on the designs you see on our website.  We can combine devices onto a single board, change the shape, or even some of the components to meet your exact needs.  We also provide turn-key metal enclosures with powder coating and full-color printing on the top side starting at just $500 for setup!  We have more than 20 years of experience in electronics design and manufacturing.  All of our products are designed and manufactured in the USA, so we are here to support the products we make.  We only ask that our customers prototype their needs using our existing products before we customize.

Customization Guidelines

  • Custom designs should be based on our existing product because we can’t build rockets or electric cars over here!
  • We do not provide customization services if it involves the introduction of a new or untested technology.
  • Custom engineering fees depend on your requirements, so please contact us for a quote!
  • We maintain ownership of all designs, including our customized designs as they are based on our existing Design.
  • We will only ship the customized product to you or your authorized agents.
  • We have an NDA available if needed.
  • The turn-around time is about 2-3 weeks.
  • We specialize in low-volume designs, no quantity is too small!
  • We have the ability to scale to large volumes as needed.

Getting Started with Product Customization

All you have to do is contact us and we will walk you through the process from beginning to end, based on your individual needs.  Some people are surprised at how fast we finish CAD design (usually a few hours), but keep in mind, we still have to build your design, which takes considerably more time.  When we customize product, here are the general services we provide:

  • We design the circuit board.
  • We communicate with our customers throughout the customization and manufacturing process.
  • We manufacture surface mount stencils and circuit boards.
  • We program our pick and place machines to build your boards.
  • We build a working sample and run it through our wave solder machine.
  • We test your custom IoT solution.
  • Once the design is finalized it won’t be possible to make changes during production (changes cost money and require us to repeat the above processes)
  • Once it meets all your requirements, we will start production as needed.
  • We work with our metal fabricators to design a metal enclosure if required.
  • You work with our artist to print the top side of the enclosure in full color with your company logo if required.
