Application Notes and White Papers
Here's how some of our customers used this product.
Remote Logging with Cloud Access
The Background: Our customer manages a LEED Certified building. They seek a means of monitoring and logging temperature and relative humidity data to ensure occupant comfort as well as compliance with LEED standards.
The Problem: Due to challenges within the building’s network and the desire to access the data remotely on the cloud, the customer wants to deploy a robust stand-alone system that is easy to set up and run. They are running into two issues: many systems that offer cellular access require wired sensors, and, wireless systems that need to hook into an Ethernet router.
The Solution: The GE Orbit ECR is the perfect industrial cellular gateway for this application. Coupled with Madgetech RFC1000 cloud relay and wireless MadgeTech RFRHTemp2000A sensors with a range up to 2000', the problem has been solved. Ethernet from the RFC Cloud relay goes into the ECR router and is transmitted via a preferred carrier to the Madgetech Cloud software which can be accessed from anywhere.
