MultiTech Gateway Powers Yokogawa’s Sushi Sensor Solution for the Industrial IoT

-

Multi-Tech Systems, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of M2M and IoT communication devices, today announced that its MultiConnect® Conduit® IP67 Base Station, a LoRaWAN® ruggedized IoT gateway, was selected by Yokogawa Electric Corporation for its Sushi Sensor solution, which was recently launched in Europe. Yokogawa’s new LoRaWAN compliant solution was developed for deployment within industrial plants; covers vast areas; has environmental resistance features to support heavy-duty use; and works in combination with advanced analytics such as AI and machine learning in a cloud environment. MultiTech’s LoRaWAN gateway solution captures and manages the information detected from sensors within the solution.

“We are honored that Yokogawa selected our IoT gateway to be used within their new Sushi Sensor,” said CEO of MultiTech, Stefan Lindvall. “Yokogawa is successfully leveraging cutting-edge IoT technologies to open up new opportunities for its customers to apply revolutionary new communications solutions to remote access monitoring.”

Sushi Sensor is an OpreX™ Asset Management and Integrity wireless solution for the Industrial IoT. The first product, the XS770A, originally launched in Japan in 2018, can measure vibration and surface temperature to monitor machine or equipment conditions for industrial use. Since it complies with LoRaWAN, which is a low-power wide-area (LPWA) network for long-distance communication, the XS770A can be deployed anywhere in a plant and cover a vast area. It also has environmental resistance features to support heavy-duty use (IP66/67, explosion proof).

“Our decision to work with MultiTech was based on its compatibility with LoRaWAN and its flexibility to support both cloud-based and on-premise network architectures,” said Shuichi Takai, senior manager at Yokogawa. “The Conduit IP67 gateway is durable enough for the harsh environments we encounter within production sites, and we found the Conduit IP67 to be technically advanced and stable.”

The MultiConnect Conduit IP67 Base Station is a ruggedized IoT gateway solution, specifically designed for outdoor LoRa public or private network deployments. The highly scalable and certified gateway is capable of resisting the harshest environmental factors including moisture, dust, wind, rain, snow and extreme heat. The device supports LoRaWAN applications in virtually any environment.  Leveraging the MultiConnect Conduit, this device can support thousands of LoRaWAN-certified end nodes, including the MultiConnect® mDotTM and xDot®. This flexible solution provides durable, low-power, wide area network connectivity in support of M2M and IoT applications for both LoRa service providers and individual enterprises wanting to expand their LoRa network coverage.
