Embit launches new 868 MHz Ethernet to WMBus gateway

EMB-GATE-WMB868Embit launches today a new gateway / bridge for 868 MHz Wireless M-Bus networks: the EMB-GATE-WMB868 is a low-cost, powerful embedded system that interfaces the EMB-WMB868 module to Ethernet TCP/IP networks.

The EMB-GATE-WMB868 can be configured in a few minutes, through an user-friendly embedded web server. Moreover this gateway can be used as an open platform: an SDK consisting of C/C++ libraries is provided to develop your own application running on the embedded Linux OS. This allows any user to design his custom application and have his own product behavior.

The application scenarios include: gas/water/electricity utilities deploying Wireless M-Bus networks for automatic meter reading (AMR), custom wireless sensor network (WSN) applications and more!

The product will be available soon for sampling.
