Smart Coordination Bridge

Smart M2M Coordination Bridge is a robust, reliable and configurable communication device that helps orchestrate and coordinate the communication amongst a group of field devices through a local area network. It also enables the communication of all such field devices with the backend Xenia IoT Platform through Xenius M2M Gateway for their real-time monitoring and control. With advanced capabilities like edge intelligence, field upgrades and a host of protocol support, it helps connect heterogeneous field devices for multiple IoT application areas.

As an example use case, in case of Smart Metering, Xenius Coordination Bridge can communicate and control up to twelve smart electronic meters by forming a local area network through multiple communication options like RS232, RS485, wired probes or wireless RF network. On the other side, it can be interfaced with the Xenius M2M Gateway using a wired or wireless connectivity for connectivity to the backend Xenia IoT Platform. Through its Digital and Analog input/output ports, Xenius Coordination Bridge is capable of interfacing, sensing and controlling additional sensors and relays of energy meters or additional devices like Diesel Generators, Smart Street Lights and Smart Water Management Systems.

Technical Specifications

SpecificationDetails
Communication in different configuration865 MHz wireless for Neighborhood Area Network (NAN) side and RS485 based wired network on meter side for communication with smart meter and another smart sensor which makes non-smart meter to smart. NAN is a network comprising of group of Bridge devices. Each bridge device in tern collect data from meters attached on RS485 bus
Baud RateCapable to communicate with the meters as per meter’s standard communication baud rates
Firmware UpgradeFirmware Over The Air (FOTA), all the controller are FOTA enabled and there should be no requirement to physically change or upgrade the firmware
Parameter UpgradeOver The Air. All the threshold parameters (i.e load management) are configurable from backend over the air
