Areas of Expertise:

One of the application where this product is being used is for monitoring of discrete machines such as CNC machines, SPMs etc. in manufacturing shop floor. Suitable signals are tapped from the machines and connected to digital input lines on the eYe. eYe monitors the changes in the signal status and records the status change in its memory with a time stamp. This data can be retrieved from eYe through Wi-Fi connection and analysed to determine the machine status. Full functional serial port can be used to upload / download data to the machines remotely. PC or mobile devices can communicate with eYe using Wi-Finetwork. Application can connect to eYe as TCP-IP client to collect data or to control the device. eYe provides both Client mode as well as Software Access Point mode of operation, so that it can be connected to other Access point when configured as client or can be made work as Software Access Point to which other devices can be connect. The external client can be physically away as it connects through Wi-Fi and this enables remote monitoring and control.

Hardware and Software Expertise:

  • Low cost IOT based module development
  • Optical galvanic Isolation techniques.
  • Complete product development including mechanical enclosure
  • TCP-IP Server application on board to configure and monitor
  • Built in HTTP web server(Webpage to control the peripherals) 

Solution Offered By iWave:

iWave’s Wi-Fi module developed using Azurewave's AW-CU288 Module along with a carrier board for optical isolation used to fulfil the customer requirements. Its small size (approx. 155mm X 94.5mm X 35mm) and metal enclosure features make it suitable for industrial environments.
