How Does Sonicu Integrated IoT Solutions Work?

Depending on your equipment or application, an integrated IoT solution may utilize industry-standard analog and/or digital sensors, modbus serial connectivity, 4-20 mA low voltage, and for some applications dry-contact switches. All these can easily communicate with our MVP 440 Integrated IoT device. The MVP 440 transmits monitored data via 4G cellular, Wi-Fi or Ethernet, to the Sonicloud platform, enabling remote wireless monitoring capability to machines and equipment that are not natively web-enabled. Additionally, Integrated IoT can deliver live monitored data 24/7 straight into your existing BAS/BMS system - see example C.

Example A – Add Air Velocity Monitoring to calculate air changes per hour

Sonicu-deployment-diagram-A

This straightforward example of SoniCloud connectivity applies to any application that uses sensor(s) (digital or analog) to collect data. The sensor(s) transmits live monitored data to the MVP meter, which sends it to the SoniCloud platform hosted on Amazon Web Services for maximum security. The MVP meter transmits data to the cloud 24/7 without interruption or data loss. Users can access the data anytime and receive alerts on their smart device as needed.

 


Example B – Add Sonicu to Lab Incubator to enable remote alerts 24/7

Sonicu-deployment-diagram-B-1

This example of SoniCloud connectivity applies to any piece of equipment or machine that has RS485 serial output or dry-contacts to enable data connection. The modbus transmits live monitored data 24/7 to the MVP meter, which sends it to the SoniCloud platform hosted on Amazon Web Services for maximum security. Users access the data anytime to identify trends, and receive alerts on their smart device if user-set temperature limits are exceeded.

 


Example C – Connect Warehouse to your BAS/BMS system, and add Sonicu 24/7 remote wireless monitoring

Sonicu-deployment-diagram-C

This example shows a sensor transmitting temperature and humidity data 24/7 in a warehouse to the MVP meter, which sends it to your system and the SoniCloud platform simultaneously. Users receive alerts on their smart device if user-set temperature or humidity limits are exceeded in the warehouse. You can also connect equipment to your BAS/BMS system using RS485, dry-contact, or custom protocols.

MVP 440 Digital Meter / Integrated IoT Device

MVP440-with-HMI-screen-3

Sonicu’s MVP 440 wirelessly connects machines and equipment to the Sonicloud platform by acquiring data from almost any local sensor, and transmitting it to the cloud. It supports virtually all commercially-available sensors, providing a versatile platform to monitor practically anything while eliminating siloed, proprietary monitoring applications and IT overhead requirements.

Multiple MVP 440 meters can be arrayed into a single system via radio signals to collect data from multiple points and applications and then send that information to the cloud by 4G cellular, Wi-Fi or Ethernet. Sonicu’s remote wireless monitoring technology operates either in conjunction with or independently of existing enterprise IT systems.

Connectivity

Includes four input ports, plus serial modbus connection. Modbus configuration options include; modbus master, modbus slave, and custom protocols.

Each input port can be configured as one of the following:

  • Sonicu digital sensor 
  • 4 to 20 mA
  • Contact closure (dry contact)
