Wireless or Cellular Communication Board

The Wireless or Cellular Communication Board is a PicoCell daughterboard that is ideally suited for applications that require remote monitoring and control of pumping systems.

DESCRIPTION:

The Wireless or Cellular Communication Board integrates seamlessly with the PicoCell and enables IoT capabilities like remote system control, and remote system monitoring. When combined with the Analog Sensor Board, the Wireless or Cellular Communication Board enables the operation of external sensors of the customer’s choosing such as wind speed, or flow rate sensors.

The sensor outputs, and control capabilities, can be accessed through the internet using our Wireless Communication Portal platform. The Wireless Communication Portal allows for access and control using a standard browser on either a desktop computer or smartphone device. Through the Wireless Communication Portal, a deeper understanding of your system’s operation can be gained by observing long term trends that can give insights to optimize system performance.
