AAD offers developers a robust IoT sensor platform

31 January 2018 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Sensing devices are at the heart of Internet of Things (IoT) technology innovation, and Arrow Altech Distribution (AAD) is enhancing its presence in sensor-to-cloud-to-analytics IoT technology platforms.

This spans the gamut of environmental sensors, and includes lightning sensors, air sensors for detecting PM2.5 and PM10 suspended particulates, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and water acidity, air pressure, humidity and temperature, and UV sensors.

As the manager of the company’s wireless department, Gyula Wendler, explains, “This technology opens up a broad range of opportunities for engineers and developers serving industries that are working on solutions for the environmental challenges that threaten food security and other critical environmental aspects of life as we know it, as well as the way we are impacted by our cities, roads and workplaces.”

Those building IoT solutions in this space want to deliver sensory products to the market quickly and cost effectively. With AAD’s sensory IoT solutions they are able to gather accurate and reliable sensory information in real-time and use this to create ready-to-deploy IoT applications and devices, making use of an open data-sharing infrastructure and AAD’s sensor-to-cloud-to-analytics technology stacks, tools and platforms.

In bringing this technology to its market, AAD partners with Libelium, a global company that is able to ‘connect any sensor to any cloud platform using any wireless technology’ making IoT more widely accessible.

Libelium has assisted organisations in deploying remote sensing solutions in applications including forestry, agriculture, environmental monitoring, smart manufacturing and traffic control since 2006. Its hardware is designed to minimise power consumption, further contributing to the reduced environmental footprint that serves as the underlying philosophy in its market value proposition.

AAD’s IoT offerings, in turn, include a comprehensive range of hardware components, development platforms and software tools linked together by supporting services. Its eVolve platform, which includes Arrow Connect, provides customers with a complete ‘sensor-to-sunset’ solution that simplifies the specification, creation, management and operation of IoT networks throughout their working life.

“By harnessing and giving expression to sensing innovation through our respective capabilities, Libelium and Arrow play a significant role when it comes to providing a robust technology framework and infrastructure platform, available as an off-the-shelf IoT solution requiring minimal design effort prior to deployment,” says Wendler.
