NeoCortec in Denmark has launched a series of wireless mesh modules with simplified antenna connections for the Internet of Things (IoT).
The NeoMesh P series modules, launched at the electronica exhibition this week, add an RF/IO antenna connection placed under the module on solder pads for quick and easy soldering to any PCB. This simplifies the antenna design and enables a more compact design of the sensor or actuator.
The NC1000P-8, NC1000P-9 and NC2400P operate at 868 MHz, 915 MHz and 2.4 GHz respectively and complement the C-Series modules that come with an u.FL connector and are used whenever an external connector is wanted.
The modules measure 11 x 18 x 2.6 mm and are aimed at IoT and Cloud-based sensor networks, including smart home and smart workplace, metering, security, agriculture, transportation, industry 4.0, medical and food distribution.
The NeoCortec communication modules are modules equipped with radio and NeoMesh, and can easily be integrated in a sensor or motor. They use the NeoMesh protocol for node to node mesh communication of sensors without any need for mains powered devices. All devices can be battery powered, also the gateway if needed.
This allows a network to be set up with just two nodes, and additional nodes are added automatically to expand the range and coverage.
