In many Industrial IoT applications, minimising power consumption is a key design requirement. As an example, IoT capability may involve adding remote sensors and connectivity to a location that may not already have power available.

It’s often not feasible to add wiring, so a battery-operated solution is a preferred option. To maximise battery life, the sensor node typically spends most of its time in a low-power “sleep” mode, waking up periodically according to a fixed schedule.

During the waking period, the node gathers data and transmits it wirelessly to a central hub. Then it goes back to sleep until it’s time for the next measurement. To achieve this Industrial IoT must be self-organising, self-configuring, self-correcting, scalable, with very low energy consumption, simple to install and based on global standards.

Siretta IoT solutions satisfy these requirements as demonstrated in the application examples below.

Low Power Solar Monitoring

Siretta low power industrial modem solutions are used in many applications which require longlife on reduced power such as solar panels or from running on batteries. The optimised low power...
