GSM 3G Sensor Hub for Industrial IoT - North America, Caribbean, Latin America
These sensor hubs uploads your sensor information to Tools.Valarm.net in real-time, as often as you need.
** These are 1 of our hottest sellers since they're the key brain-like component you need for remotely monitoring Industrial IoT sensors with Tools.Valarm.net.
This sensor hub connects to any 3G GSM cellular network in North America (like Ting, AT&T, or T-Mobile in the states), the Caribbean, or Latin America (like Claro, Tigo, Telcel, Movistar, or Virgin Mobile).
The sensor hub hosts up to 3 Yoctopuce sensors to do remote monitoring of assets, equipment, environmental measurements, and anything else, like:
- Flood Warning Systems Monitoring Coastal Smart Cities, Storm Surges, Rising Tides, Natural Disasters, and Emergency Management
- Water Resources Management for Remote Water Wells - Flow Meters, Water Usage, and Water Levels
- Air Quality & Pollution
- Fluids and Water Monitoring Systems
- Fleet Vehicles, Trucks, and Trailers with Pumps, Generators, Motors, Machinery, Hydraulics, Tanks, & Other Industrial Equipment
You can add as many additional sensors as you like with Sensor Hub Shields.
Your sensor hubs can be powered any 5V power source. For example, you can use
- A USB Micro cable and a regular plain ol' charger
- A battery pack
- Any other 5V power supply, like one coming from a solar charge controller and solar panels
The radio module supports the two GSM frequency bands 850 MHz and 1900 MHz used in North America, the Caribbean and Latin America. For a detailed list of frequency bands supported in each country, please refer to the Wikipedia page on GSM frequency bands.
Note: These other GSM sensor hubs are also available for your business's Industrial IoT needs:
- 3G GSM sensor hubs for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Pacific
- 2G / GPRS / GSM sensor hubs
** Enclosures for these GSM sensor hubs are available here.
How do you connect your sensor hubs to Tools.Valarm.net?
The video above shows you how to integrate your Yocto GSM hub with Tools.Valarm.net to map, graph, analyze, download, and forward your sensor data in real-time.
This GSM sensor hub is super useful for mobile Industrial IoT applications when you combine them with GPS / GNSS sensors. Take a gander at this customer story to see how to track and monitor fleet vehicles, trucks, and trailers with industrial equipment and additional sensor factors.
The Yocto GSM / 3G Sensor Hub Connector Device features a built-in clock timer, that makes it possible to put the device into low-power deep sleep and wake-up automatically at predefined time. This makes it possible to reduce power consumption to 15uA while sleeping, which is crucial for applications running on battery or solar panels. The GPRS GSM Sensor Hub only needs a few seconds of wake-up time to upload your sensor data to Tools.Valarm.net where you can map, graph, analyze, predict, download, API-forward, and use custom sensor calculators like statistics, calibration and interpolation.
Three Yoctopuce sensors can be connected directly, one of which can be fixed directly on the sensor hub and connected using a Board2Board-127 connector. The sensor hub can power Yoctopuce sensors with up to 2A.
Want to connect more sensors? You can connect as many additional sensors as you like using 1 or more YoctoHub-Shield extensions.
Warning: although the 3 downstream ports hosting Yoctopuce devices use USB micro-B connectors, the sensor hub uses a specific protocol simpler than USB to talk to the devices. Therefore it is not possible to use or even to power a regular (non-Yoctopuce) device using the sensor hub. Also, it is not possible to use a regular USB hub on the downstream ports.
