Monitoring system and wireless data acquisition
iNova Network Structure
A range of high-tech sensors that can detect a variety of parameters like structural, environmental, chemical, and physical movement with which to configure wireless mesh networks intelligent, self-powered, self-configuring routers and gateways. These components rely on a highly innovative technology. They do not require any wiring, and can be easily implemented in existing structures for both temporary and permanent installations.
The technology “iNova Network” provides two-way communication between the asynchronous and the data center and all of the sensors or actuators fixed and movable found in any of the areas covered and removable automatically finding the optimal path.
Thanks to the mesh, the “iNova” structure can also be extended at any time to cover additional areas with the simple addition of new devices, that automatically connect to the existing network. These characteristics make the “iNova Network” a win-win, the only way to realize the connection networks in large-scale independent by the external power and therefore no additional installation work which makes them suitable for both permanent infrastructure that limited the duration of individual events.
The sensors communicate periodically or upon the occurrence of specific events, with the entire infrastructure through which the gateway update the software iNova Data Manager.
The network is divided into subnetworks “Router” detection that ensure radio coverage of the spaces to be monitored. A subnet is obtained by arranging Router that configure a communication of “mesh” type capable of conveying information to and from a gateway. The density of the router to be installed is a function both of the environment to be covered (characterized by obstacles more or less transparent to radio frequency), and the characteristics of the services that you want to provide. In general, the simple communication coverage requires that the sensors are in radio range of each other reliably (about 200m in open sight and about 40-60 meters indoors).
Inclinometer sensors and transducer with integrated thermometer and hygrometer to assess the effect of relative humidity and temperature on the structure and on the sensor to distinguish seasonal changes.
