Libelium Waspmote Gateway ZigBee-PRO (ZB PRO)
Waspmote is an open source wireless sensor platform especially focused on the implementation of low consumption modes which allows the sensor nodes ("motes") to be completely autonomous, that is battery powered. The lifetime of Waspmote sensor nodes may go from 1 to 5 years depending on the duty cycle and the radio used.
Waspmote is based on a modular architecture. The idea is to integrate only the modules needed in each device optimizing costs. For this reason, all the modules (radios, sensor boards, etc) plugin Waspmote through sockets.
This device allows collecting data which flows through the sensor network into a PC or device with a standard USB port. Waspmote Gateway will act as a ”data bridge or access point” between the sensor network and the receiving equipment. This receiving equipment will be responsible for storing and using the data received depending on the specific needs of the application.
XBee-PRO ZB embedded RF modules provide cost-effective wireless connectivity to devices in ZigBee mesh networks. Utilizing the ZigBee PRO Feature Set, these modules are interoperable with other ZigBee devices, including devices from other vendors†. Programmable versions of the XBee-PRO ZB module make customizing ZigBee applications easy, even without wireless design expertise. SMA-RP Version.
