Device Solutions launches LoRa transceivers for remote monitoring

Nov. 7, 2017

Morrisville, NC. Device Solutions Inc. has announced the availability of the next generation Cellio LoRa long-range low-power wireless transceivers for wide area, long range, end-to-end monitoring and control for agriculture, cold chain, gas distribution, transportation, and other industrial applications.

Cellio is suited for single locations as well extensive enterprise configurations where there may be upwards of millions of sensors and controls connected to equipment across the continent. Partnered with cellular carriers and back-end cloud platforms, sensor instrumentation companies, and technology core companies, full enterprise-level-solution installations can be quick, easily scaled, and very affordable.

Easy to install, the Cellio ecosystem enables companies to gain visibility into their operations and assets on a continuous basis. For many companies this means moving from clipboards, paper, and pencil to near real-time information of inventories, process parameters, and alert conditions across the enterprise all day every day.

“We have worked with many enterprise solution companies in the past but we have rarely had the privilege to represent a company that truly provides everything needed for a successful enterprise deployment out of the box while also allowing the full spectrum of customization options,” said Jim Friedrich, president and CEO, EnVision Enterprise Solutions. “It’s hard to wrap your head around how extensible the Cellio platform truly is until you see it for yourself.”

Cellio transceivers use LoRa wireless technology (Long Range 915 MHz) to connect sensors and controllers wirelessly to the cloud. The newest generation of Cellio LoRa Transceivers provide

  • an internal wireless antenna supporting greater than one-mile line of sight communication
  • four to five years of operation on single 9-V lithium battery,
  • support for 4-to 20-mA sensors,
  • real time alert/fault detection and notifications,
  • waterproof and dustproof enclosure (IP68), and
  • one-wire sensor support.

“Our newest Cellio LoRa transceiver integrates features and capabilities that our customers have been seeking,” explained Bob Witter, CEO of Device Solutions. “The Cellio ecosystem has expanded to meet the needs of a broadening array of verticals while maintaining a ‘loosely coupled’ architecture to allow for maximum flexibility. We are quite pleased with the feedback we are receiving from the range of companies using Cellio. We feel like we are in the right place in the market at the right time.”
