Wireless gateway for sensor network

National Instruments has announced the release of a new wireless gateway and two new measurement nodes that extend the capabilities of the NI wireless sensor network (WSN) platform.

The wireless gateway aggregates measurement data from distributed WSN nodes, making data available within deployed LabVIEW Real-Time applications running on CompactRIO.

It also adds to existing programmable and nonprogrammable WSN gateways to offer choices for cost and flexibility.

In addition, the company’s NI WSN-3230 and NI WSN-3231 Serial Nodes feature one serial port and two digital I/O channels for discrete inputs, event detection and programmatic control.

The nodes embed query and parse algorithms directly on WSN node with LabVIEW WSN Module to create autonomous programmable interface to a variety of serial-based instruments, sensors and control boards.
