The basis: you need a sensor
①, a base unit
② (called the SensorGateway
) and a switch ③
connects to a base unit
) using a standard network cable. The network cable tranmits data and power between the base unit and the sensor. The maximum distance between a sensor and the base unit is up to
100m/330ft when using a CAT6/7 cable and is subject to cable quality and interference.
supports by default up to 2 sensors. With the optional SensorHub
up to 8 sensors can be connected to a base unit.
connects to a switch over standard CAT5 or CAT6 UTP network cable. If your switch is PoE ready then the base unit will be powered over the network.
No PC or software required
The base units are stand-alone units. They do not require any PC or software to operate.
You configure them using a browser and then they just operate on their own.
The optional ServersCheck Monitoring Platform
enables you to centrally monitor, alert and store historic data on multiple InfraSensing or 3rd party sensors.
100% On-premises | No internet required
The base units connect to your internal network. Out of the box they do not require an Internet connection to operate.
It is not IoT unless you configure it to connect to the Internet.
When you setup a public email server for email alerting, use our Cloud, or our Premium Alert service then it connects to the Internet. In such cases the connections are initiated by the base unit and are only outgoing.
RS-485 for industrial applications
Serial RS485 is still used in non IP based industrial environments. To support customers in legacy environments we do offer RS485 versions of some of our sensors.
