Compact-CS-485

802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi Module OEMs, Tx-Rx, Client / Server type, Pin Reset

Ordering Code: CMP-R-S04-CS

The Compact-CS-485 is plug-and-play Wi-Fi stackable module. It is a RS485 to Wi-Fi Converter.

Compact-CS-485 is a client / server type Wi-Fi module.

This means that it is able to autonomously connect to a server, also public, and communicate with it. It can simulate a wire cutting between two devices used combined with a Compact-CS-485 module.

INTERFACES

Compact-CS-485 permits, through an external RS485 transceiver, to enable the transmission PIN of the RS485 communication.

WI-FI COMMUNICATION

Compact-CS-485 is a complete and fully certified module that offers a quick, easy and cost effective solution to OEMs to enable Wi-Fi connectivity into their systems.

The module is an IEEE 802.11bgn device that directly provides a wireless interface for data transfer and control of equipments. It integrates WLAN protocol and configuration functionality to make a fully WLAN solution.

It permits ad hoc and infrastructure mode to create itself a wi-fi network or to connect to an existent access point.

CLOUD READY

The device is ready to be connected to a cloud solution, like Sense Cloud, to share data all over the world by the Internet.

So, it can be used over a system already equipped with an RS485 transceiver.

NO SOFTWARE NEEDED

The Compact-CS-485 modules are immediately ready to be used. Thanks to Wiicom configurator software, available on wiicom website, user can define all Wi-Fi network settings.

There’s no need to develope or modify any software on the host board.

screen-dashboardThe Drag&Drop Dashboard (read more ...) is available bundled software to implement a customizable dashboard. Available widgets are typical environmental gauges and can be positioned into the dashboard in a drag&drop way. Drag&Drop Dashboard is able to visualize a set of signals with custom widgets directly chosen by the user. With Drag&Drop Dashboard, OEMs and System Integrators will be able to create your own custom application and prototypes for the monitoring of their devices. Drag&Drop Dashboard is available on PC version and on mobile (iOS and Android) version.
