[UKPRwire, Wed Aug 22 2007] TDC has introduced a flexible development kit designed for low-cost/power simultaneous remote monitoring and control of systems including machine-to-machine interfaces, automatic pay and sales machines, maintenance and security systems.
The Industry Resource Internet Supervision, IRIS, Development Kit from TRL Funk is now available from TDC, and works on a 433MHz frequency reaching over 1000 meters with a free line of sight. This provides users with up to 70 different radio channels within a certified range and enables a wide range of functions to be performed within minutes including monitoring temperature and pressure sensors, taking automatic meter readings, traffic telematics and storage logistics.
The new Development Kit features two of each of the following: evaluation boards with RS232 and RS485 interfaces, radio data transmission modules, antennas, power supplies, serial data cables, and all the documentation and software required for configuration.
IRIS can be used for cable replacement where the distance between the units exchanging data is too long or there are problems installing cable and bi-directional function makes sending and receiving possible with only one unit.
The IRIS modules are very compact with the dimensions of 42 x 51 x 11mm and consequently they can be integrated into almost any devices. An Internet version of IRIS is currently under development. The IRIS Development Kit and further radio data devices from TRL Funksysteme GmbH are available from TDC now.
