Those of you interested in creating Internet of Things projects may be interested in the new environmental monitoring board which has been created by Izitron a specialist for IoT applications.
Watch the video below to learn more about the multi sensor board which has been designed to support the XBee Wireless Sensor Network and is capable of monitoring pressure, temperature, humidity and light.
Izitron has taken to the Kickstarter crowdfunding website to raise the €24,000 they require to make the jump into production, and start creating the very first I-SEN1 monitor boards, its developers explain a little more about its design and functionality.
I-SEN1 is a compact, low power consumption multi-sensors board designed to work with XBee module. It allows real-time monitoring for temperature, pressure, humidity and light data. It is provided with three power modes (micro-USB, cable or battery) to adapt your specific needs. Why do we chose XBee modules? Simply beacause they are ultra low power consumption on sleep mode (less than 50 µA), they allows high quality network topology and high network security (128 bit AES).
I-SEN1 is a board which use the XBee module to create mesh sensor network.The XBee module allows power consumption optimization which is a great advantage when using I-SEN1 on battery is necessary. This is translated by the fact that the user can set up the “Sleep” function so that I-SEN1 board consumption reduce significantly.
I-SEN1 is not designed to use more than one power connection at the same time. I-SEN1 design has been optimized with regards to the power consumption for higher autonomy when battery power is used and therefore it doesn’t has a battery power management circuit.
For more information on the new I-SEN1 jump over to the website for details and to make a pledge from just €22 to get your hands on one of the very first boards of the production line.
