Smartbox, based on the Telit Chipset HE910 is a ready to use solution for connecting Modbus devices to the Cumulocity Fieldbus Cloud. It provides a Master Slave Communication on RS485 for connecting up to 20 devices as well as 10 Sensors (Current ,Temperature, Pressure). Easy configure the SetUp of building automation fielddevices like pumps, e-meters, Airhandling units in the Cumulocity Fieldbus cloud or connect different sensortypes to the box. Using the Smartrest protocol the terminal comes up with a low traffic solution for decentralized applications. For the Smartbox there is a customized user interface available made for easy handling the sensors and showing graphs for consumption and temperatures.
