The VersaSense MicroPnP IoT solutions are already being used by major industrial, consumer goods, technology, telco and agriculture companies for a wide range of applications such as: infrastructure monitoring, building energy management, and precision animal farming, as well as many others such as workplace monitoring, compliance monitoring for perishable goods storage, HVAC monitoring, weather monitoring and safety control systems.
"In the past an Industrial IoT solution would require design engineers to work with projects that involved low-level programming that ended up with minimal connectivity," said David Stein, VP, Global Semiconductors at Digi-Key. "We're excited to partner with VersaSense and offer their versatile MicroPnP platform. VersaSense's self-configuring hardware system will allow engineers to easily design data acquisition and control solutions to enable their innovation."
VersaSense designs and manufactures wireless Internet of Things products and services that radically reduce the total cost of ownership for industrial sensing and control systems.
The award winning, highly scalable and standards-based MicroPnP line of zero-configuration wireless sensing and actuation products includes ultra-low power wireless IoT devices, a wide range of sensors and actuators, and end-to-end software support.
Specialized sensing systems from VersaSense power and secure the Industrial Internet for major industrial, consumer goods, technology and agricultural companies in a diverse set of application domains such as infrastructure monitoring, precision farming and building energy management.
