Live Presentation of Endurance Line, USB Dongle and Smart Building IoT Devices at the RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2021!
Fujitsu Components will reveal its five newly launched IoT connectivity products live at the RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2021 on October 20th and 21st in Wiesbaden, Germany.
“After the COVID crises , we need opportunities to meet again with the actors of the IOT world”, explains Pierre St. Jalme, Marketing manager IoT, Fujitsu Components Europe. “The RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2021 is the perfect place for that." A live demonstration illustrates the power of the Fujitsu Connectivity Solutions in Asset Tracking.
Fujitsu has developed, in cooperation with customers, partners and end-users, the Endurance Line and USB Dongle.The Endurance line has a strong focus on smart building solutions which the company regularly brings to market. The new line-up boasts four new Mesh devices that are not only designed to elegantly blend into the environment, having great flexibility when it comes to installation, but feature traditional Japanese patterns which represent each Endurance Line Smart Building device, taking quality to highest level.
For example, the pattern used for the CO2 environmental sensor is named ‘Asanoha’, which in Japanese means strong vitality and growth. Thanks to the integrated Mesh technology, the new Endurance Line can be fully battery powered, ensuring installation is quick, easy and cost efficient, meaning it can operate for many years on just four AA batteries, or – if the installation allows it – to be powered by 5V USB.
Designed to Market
As an extension on the current portfolio of mesh devices, the design and its mechanical features are based on our customers feedback and requests from the market. This has resulted in the following products in the Endurance Line.
The Fujitsu Mesh Anchor Node
Ein wasserdichtes (IP65), batterie- oder USB-betriebenes Gerät, das sehr flexibel bei der Installation ist, um Ihnen die beste Leistung zu bieten. Er fungiert gleichzeitig als Referenzpunkt für die Mesh-basierte Anlagenverfolgung, als Routerknoten für die Infrastruktur und als Bake für die Indoor-Navigation.
The Fujitsu Mesh Asset Tag
A water resistant (IP65), battery (or USB) powered device with accelerometer sensor and multicolored LED light. As a perfect tag for medium-to-large sized assets, this 3-axis accelerometer sensor can trigger the asset to share its location on movement, or go into deep sleep mode when standing still to extend its already very long battery life even further. Then, a highly visible LED can reduce picking errors or be used for other notification purposes.
The Fujitsu Mesh Sensor Unit
As a fully packed unit with sensors, this Mesh device works to monitor environmental conditions. It’s battery or USB powered, has an IP65 water resistant rating, and is easy to install. Onboard, you’ll find the following sensors:
- Barometric Pressure
- 3-Axis Acceleration
- Sound Level
It also touts a multicolored LED that can be used to identify certain conditions by blinking in different colours and rhythms.
The Fujitsu Mesh Environment Sensor
This unit is specifically developed for the high demands in todays crowded environments such as class rooms, meeting areas, office departments and public buildings; areas where the air quality is contributing to the health, physical concentration and comfort of its users.
It incorporates a CO2 sensor, which sits on top of all the sensors of the sensor unit. It’s both water resistant and USB-powered for ultimate installation flexibility while maintaining the reliability of a continued power supply.
The Fujitsu USB-Dongle
The USB dongle offers the possibility to use devices which feature a USB port to obtain a role in the network as anchor, tag or sink. Allowing positioning and sensor data such as humidity, temperature, lighting to run through the dongle and offering a cost-effective way to bring Wirepas Massive Mesh Anchor or Tag functions to any equipment with USB slot.
Insert the USB dongle into a portable device such as a laptop, beamer, etc. and enable track and tracing of these devices.
Locate the devices, manage inventory levels, add maintenance information or set boundaries per room or location which the device should not leave.
Imagine the Possibilities
The challenges these days is making the work environment as convenient as possible for employees, customers and visitors, but also to improve efficiency and reduce costs. The Endurance Line and the Mesh technology connecting them, contributes in achieving all of the above.
Creating a building-wide battery powered Mesh network can be both quick and easy to do by using the Fujitsu Mesh Anchor node and/ or the USB dongle. Indoor or outdoor, this forms the basic network for a smart building. From the get-go, the Anchor nodes become the reference points for performing asset tracking with less than 5 meters of accuracy, meaning no more searching around for valuable assets and not knowing your inventory. Then, the Fujitsu Mesh Asset node can be easily attached to objects that need to be tracked within and around a building or simply insert the USB dongle in a USB slot.
The well-being of our children at school, our colleagues on the production floor or in the office, and the recovering patients in hospitals, are vitally important. The Fujitsu Mesh Environment Sensor monitors all the influences that impact our health, from CO2 levels to identify if the ventilation is good, to temperature, humidity and barometric pressure to adjust the climate and provide comfort. Then, the luminance sensor gives information on the light intensity in rooms and makes more efficient use of luminaires possible and to save energy.
The unique combination of the above sensors, along with noise monitoring, can help to create a pleasant environment for all users.
