The universal interface for digital production

New software, new options

The sWave.NET® Sensor Bridge is a classic middleware bridging the gap between the strict security of a manufacturing environment and the integrated world of digital services. It processes all messages received from sensors by remote control via access points and forwards them to applications specifically registered for this purpose. It acts as a translator between protocols, as well as an administrator, facilitating simple, precise and controlled data access. A user-friendly API (application interface) exists for the development of new applications.

The sWave.NET® Sensor Bridge is available as a software-only solution and in combination with a Gateway. It is easy to integrate in any shop floor environment and is compatible, without any further hardware, with e.g. REST (XML/json), http(s) Notifications and MODBUS TCP/IP.

Wide range of wireless transmitters and safe wireless standard

In addition to the wireless sensors which have recently been developed specifically for intralogistics, it is also possible to integrate traditional electromagnetic wireless switches (position switches, foot switches, pull wire switches…), wireless sensors (e.g. magnetic sensors) and wireless controls in the wireless network. sWave.NET® uses an exceptionally stable, yet energy-saving wireless protocol and runs on the universally available SRD MHz waveband.

Access points are installed across the transmission area and communicate with the wireless switches. Each access point can receive signals – depending on the capacity utilisation – from approx. 100+ wireless switches. Dynamic self-organisation in exchange for low configuration effort, low maintenance and high durability further contributes to the successful implementation of sWave.NET® -based sensor network solutions.


Integrated communication

The sWave-NET® Sensor Bridge is a central communication interface connecting higher services and applications with the wireless infrastructure below. Thanks to its universal connectivity, the Sensor Bridge can be integrated in any production environment. A large number of communication protocols to ERP and warehouse management systems already exist. Our system is compatible with e.g.: REST (XML / json), http(s) Notifications and MODBUS TCP/IP.


Simple configuration

The sWave.NET® network can be configured for the requirements in question very easily, via a web server. The user interface, with its practice-oriented, pre-installed settings, enables plant manufacturers, maintenance planners and IT administrators to configure the sWave.NET® wireless system without any prior special knowledge. Flexible interfaces enable adaptation to diverse applications, such as E-Kanban, Andon systems and automated guided vehicles (AGV).
