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.

EMB-Z2538PA is the new ARM Cortex-M3 wireless module by Embit

Embit today expands his product line with a new ARM Cortex™-M3 based wireless module.EMB-Z2538PA-lateral

The EMB-Z2538PA is a 2.4 GHz wireless module featuring a powerful ARM Cortex™-M3 equipped with up to 512 kB of FLASH memory and 32 kB of SRAM. The EMB-Z2538PA, based on Texas Instruments® CC2538  single-chip solution, couples the ARM Cortex™-M3 core with a state-of-art 2.4 GHz radio transceiver; the RF section integrates a PA/LNA stage assuring best-inclass performance in terms of covered area (the link budget is up to 120 dBm).

EMB-Z2538PA can communicate with other devices through several interfaces: two UART ports, a SPI, several digital I/O ports (up to 15 digital lines) and an ADC port. Moreover, development of IEEE 802.15.4 and ZigBee applications is easy thanks to the Texas Instruments® TIMAC and Z-Stack libraries, respectively.

FEATURES SUMMARY

Transceiver: TI CC2538
Frequency: 2.4 GHz
Power amplifier: yes
Maximum output power: up to +20 dBm
Maximum sensitivity: up to –100 dBm
Antenna: u.FL connector, pads or integrated PCB antenna
Firmware: fully compatible with TIMAC and Z-Stack (for IEEE 802.15.4 and ZigBee application development)

New EMB-WMB169PAE module

EMB-WMB169PA-lateral-2

A newcomer in the WMB radio module series is ready to thrill the wireless M-Bus world again. The EMB-WMB169PAE operates in the 169MHz band similary to the EMB-WMB169PA but, with a little sacrifice in term of maximum output power (+27 dBm instead of +30 dBm), is able to greatly reduce the power consumption in transmission mode (around -25% at matching output power).
The powerful Embit W-MBus stack is fully compatible with the new EMB-WMB169PAE and ready to exploit its capabilities.

 

FEATURES
MCU : MSP430F534X
MEMORY : 6/8/10 KB RAM / 64/96/128KB FLASH
FREQUENCY : 169 MHz
TRASCEIVER : TI CC1120
POWER AMPLIFIER : YES
MAXIMUM OUTPUT POWER : UP TO +27dBm
MAXIMUM SENSITIVITY : UP TO – 122dBm
ANTENNA : U.FL CONNECTOR, PADS ON EDGE CONNECTOR
DIMENSION : EMBIT’S FORM FACTOR & PIN TO PIN COMPATIBILITY
FIRMWARE : FULLY COMPATIBLE WITH EMBIT’S WMBUS STACK

New EMB-TRX169PA low-cost transceiver module

EMB-TRX169PA-lateral
The EMB-TRX169PA is a 169MHz transceiver module which is wireless M-Bus “N MODE” ready.

It is a low power / high efficiency cost effective radio module based on CC1120 Sub-1GHz transceiver from Texas Instruments. It can operate with the Embit Wireless M-Bus Stack, supporting FprEN 13757-4:2013 mode N protocol or proprietary wireless protocols.
The stack runs on the host board MCU (multiple platforms supported), interfacing via a SPI port and a few GPIO lines. All RF critical components (oscillator, matching circuitry, etc.) are included and pre-tested, ready for a seamless integration.

The EMB-TRX169PA satifies all requirements imposed by the Italian Gas Metering market requirements (Comitato Italiano Gas – CIG).

FEATURES

Transceiver: TI CC1120
Frequency: 169 Mhz
Power amplifier: yes
Maximum output power: up to +27 dBm
Maximum sensitivity: up to -122 dBm
Antenna: u.FL connector, pads on edge connector
Firmware: fully compatible with Embit Wireless M-Bus Stack

New EMB-RPT169

EMB-RPT169

A complete product based on these solution is also about to be released. The EMB-RPT169 is a compact bidirectional repeater, operating on the 169 MHz band, which allows to greatly extend the coverage of a single concentrator.

It is based on EMB-WMB169PA module and exploits its potential, such as the +27 dBm output power and the low power consumption. The device can be supplied from ac/dc main, battery, or rechargable battery coupled with renewable energy such as solar panel (integrated smart charger for LiFePO4 batteries).

Configuration and management can be done entirely over-the-air. Being based on the Wireless M-Bus stack internally developed by Embit, the firmware running on the repeater is, of course, fully compliant with the last standard prEN13757:2012 mode N.
