Modules that exceed expectations!

A wireless mesh network based on the SNAP® (Synapse Network Application Protocol) software stack is instant-on, self-forming, and self-healing. Creating applications to run on the nodes forming the network is fast, efficient, updated over-the-air, and does not require embedded programming skills. In fact, users can administer and manage a SNAP based network without actually having to know anything about the details of wireless networks.

This approach makes wireless technology accessible to a much broader range of users, including monitoring and control in consumer, commercial, industrial, and government markets. Uses range from building automation (lighting, security, HVAC) to industrial control and machine communication, medical monitoring, security applications and home automation.

Mesh Networking Products For Inventory Management

If the objective is to determine the presence or absence of products or goods inventory control may be inexpensively accomplished with passive RFID systems. Passive RFID tags contain no power source and rely upon a magnetically induced energy from the reader for power. The result is long life, although passive tags do not have the ability to communicate until a reader is within range, typically several feet or less. When inventory environment monitoring is needed wireless sensor networks monitor and report temperature, humidity, shock, smoke and more. Panasonic modules with integrated SNAP firmware allow engineers to quickly test different protocols – ISM, 802.15.4, Bluetooth -- and determine the best solution for a specific application. Panasonic offers nearly fifty different modules to build a wireless sensor network fine tuned to specific application requirements.

Mesh Networking Products For Motor Control

Remote motor control may be implemented using pulse width modulation (PWM) found in Panasonic’s PAN4555 and PAN4561 series of RF modules. Motor monitoring may also be accomplished using the communication capabilities of these products. In a typical monitoring configuration, RF modules are connected to multiple axis angular rate sensors or gyros. These sensors are used to establish a vibration profile for a specific motor. The embedded microcontroller on the RF module periodically compares the current vibration profile against the established profile. When the deviation exceeds some predetermined limit the RF module will transmit an alarm. Panasonic’s SNAP series of RF modules contain both the hardware and firmware needed to control and monitor complex functions.
