Wireless M2M Communications
Wireless M2M (machine to machine) solutions are used for a large amount of various applications in which a signal has to be sent from one installation to another, without human intervention being necessary.
Applications of the M2M system
The M2M system can be applied to safeguard machines from a distance. The machine-to-machine solution is also used to stop a pump or motor by means of wireless communication as soon as a certain cycle is completed, or when a Level Control System has reached a specific level.
The Aquarius M2M system
The Aquarius M2M system consists of two completely waterproof units (IP68) with one unit acting as a transmitter and the other unit as a receiver. The solid potted housing of the Aquarius system makes it suitable for use in the most extreme weather conditions.
How customers use our M2M solution
Examples of common applications for customers of Tyro are the use of M2M systems on irrigation systems, CNC-milling machines and water pumps. Below is an example of how such a system works in conjunction with a M2M system:
Irrigation system by means of machine-to-machine
An irrigation system typically consists of a powerful water pump which, for example, pumps water from a ditch to a sprayer which irrigates the field. When the spray computer indicates that the cycle is completed the pump will shut down. The Aquarius M2M-transmitter receives an input from the sprayer and sends a wireless signal to the Aquarius M2M receiver on the pump which immediately shuts down. All without human intervention, without even having to press a button.
Save time and money
Thanks to M2M communication human intervention is no longer necessary, besides which, time and expenses are saved by avoiding unnecessary use of raw materials. Also possible wastage can be avoided when filling tanks or reservoirs.
