MODBUS to NB-IoT Adapter

NB-IoT Gateway

The MODBUS to NB-IoT Adapter uses NB-IoT technology to send the data to the cloud. NB-IoT is the Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) radio technology standard developed by 3GPP. The Adapter combines the advantages of low cost, long battery life, and high connection density of NB-IoT with those of the ubiquitous industrial communication standard MODBUS. The converter collects the data from MODBUS(RTU) slave device and sends to the cloud through NB-IoT.

With 3GPP’s NB-IoT and LTE-M expected to be part of 5G Standard, NBIoT will coexist with other 5G components, and the MODBUS to NBIoT Adapter will find many 5G IoT usecases.

The NB-IoT Adapter comes with both mains supply (5V) and battery (rechargeable) options for operating.

Smart remote metering, Energy & Gas Metering, Water Monitoring and Measurement are a few of the many uses for CASCADEMIC's MODBUS to NBIoT Adapter.

With the increase in the number of Industries and residential complexes and depleting energy resources, efficient energy management has gained high importance. With Smart Metering method from CASCADEMIC using the MODBUS to NBIoT Adapter it is possible to track and manage energy wastage and pilferage, thus greatly reducing operating costs. The MODBUS Converter works with and can be connected to most energymeters and the data can be passed on to the cloud over NBIoT network for real time energy monitoring thereby enabling utility based billing.
