NEWRACOM and Deviceworx Launch World’s First Commercial Wi-Fi HaLow Sensor Solution | Nation / World

LAKE FOREST, Calif., December 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Since the Wi-Fi Alliance announced the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED HaLow in November, the IoT industry has faced stiff competition for the deployment of a variety of HaLow Wi-Fi products. NEWRACOM and Deviceworx Technologies have started the co-development of HaLow Wi-Fi compatible IoT sensor solutions compliant with the IEEE 802.11ah standard.

Deviceworx is the leading industrial IoT sensor solutions provider and NEWRACOM is the world’s leading manufacturer of proven HaLow Wi-Fi chips. By combining the capabilities and market experience of both companies, Deviceworx will deploy the world’s first HaLow Wi-Fi IoT sensor solution. It provides robust, secure and user-friendly sensing functions and additionally enables long-range, multi-year battery operation and high-customer connection features most applicable to industrial sensors.

Deviceworx innovates its Industrial IoT xGATEWAY to use NEWRACOM’s state-of-the-art HaLow Wi-Fi SoC, the NRC7292, to facilitate the functionality of the HaLow Wi-Fi Access Point (AP). Deviceworx is also developing a new family of IoT xTag HaLow sensors using the NRC7292. Thousands of vibration, environmental, ventilation (C02) and xTAG HaLow gas sensors will be able to connect to the cloud through a single xGATEWAY HaLow, radically simplifying the installation of IoT systems and dramatically reducing infrastructure and service costs. ‘exploitation.

The xTAG HaLow and xGATEWAY HaLow sensors will also take advantage of the NRC7292 and its ability to communicate over long distances (over a kilometer outdoors) and superior material penetration by using a frequency below gigahertz to facilitate deployment of IoT in large industrial and commercial spaces, including warehouses, refineries, mines, hospitals, schools, military bases and many more. An added benefit of using the NRC7292 is faster communications with the gateway and optimized power management: sensors can sleep longer and wake up for very short durations, thus maximizing battery life. . This allows operators to use battery-powered xTAG HaLow sensors for multi-year operation and avoid costly sensor redeployments.

“The two companies are very excited to work together to provide IoT system operators with the most applicable and competitive industrial sensors with the added benefit of native IP support, network integration. easier and more secure, ”said Zac Freeman, NEWRACOM vice president of sales and marketing. Mark Janke, CEO of Deviceworx, said: “The xGATEWAY HaLow and xTAG HaLow sensors are the complete solution to meet the diverse needs of existing and emerging markets in terms of accessibility, scalability and security. They should be marketed at the start of the second quarter of 2022. “
