  • IOT SOLUTIONS
  • There exists an almost bewildering choice of connectivity options for electronics engineers and application developers working on products and systems for the Internet of Things (IoT). Many communication technologies are well known such as WiFi, Bluetooth, Zigbee and 2G/3G/4G cellular, but there are also several new emerging networking options such as Thread as an alternative for home automation applications, and Whitespace TV technologies being implemented in major cities for wider area IoT-based use cases. Depending on the application, factors such as range, data requirements, security and power demands and battery life will dictate the choice of one or some form of combination of technologies. HMS manufactures and markets industrial communication products under the following brands: Anybus, IXXAT and eWON. Anybus Solutions offers embedded network cards and stand-alone gateways which connect different industrial devices to industrial networks. IXXAT Solutions provides connectivity solutions especially for CAN, automotive and test systems while eWON Remote Solutions specialize in remote access, monitoring and management of field devices over the web.
