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.
Compact-CS-485 permits, through an external RS485 transceiver, to enable the transmission PIN of the RS485 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.
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.
All the COMPACT modules are an ideal solution for OEMs that devolved competence in the field of Wi-Fi or RF. In fact the COMPACT-CS-485 eliminates development time on board of equipments, the burden of testing and certification, allowing customers to exclusively focus on core product.
