Telit, today announced the commercial availability of its BlueMod+S42 Bluetooth 4.2 module, and two variants of the popular SL869 single and multi-standard positioning module family, the SL869-V3 and the SL869-ADR.
The BlueMod+S42 complies with the Bluetooth SIG v4.2 standard, which features critical upgrades, making Bluetooth low energy (BLE) applications faster, and more secure. This powerful high-end Bluetooth low energy module is an ideal solution for industrial applications such as electronic locking systems, lighting control, measuring, iBeacons; and for medical devices such as insulin pumps, hearing aids and wireless foot control.
The SL869-V3 and SL869-ADR are multi-constellation Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver modules, each capable of tracking and using up to three constellations simultaneously to produce positioning, velocity and time information.
The use of multiple constellations provides advantages over previous GPS-only receiver modules, including improved accuracy and a handling of weak or blocked satellite signals. The SL869-V3 is intended for applications requiring autonomous navigation, while the SL869-ADR includes embedded support for automotive dead-reckoning (DR) using vehicle odometer and direction (forward or reverse) input signals. Automotive DR fills in calculated position and velocity information during gaps of satellite-based navigational which occur inside tunnels, large parking structures, or in city streets flanked by tall buildings. Automotive DR also enhances position accuracy when satellite-based fixes are available but are impacted by poor satellite signal receiving conditions.
Telit also announced that it is collaborating with Wirepas to deliver simple and easy to use intelligent IOT networks. Its BlueMod+S42 platform is the first to embed the groundbreaking Wirepas Connectivity technology, a decentralized radio communications protocol that eliminates the need for traditional repeaters making every wireless device, a smart router in the network.
“We are extremely proud to be a Telit partner, as the company is one of the true frontrunners in Industrial IoT. Our product, Wirepas Connectivity being integrated by Telit, delivers an autonomous, device network that has deterministic performance at any scale. Together with Telit we can help our customers connect their devices with 24/7 availability and to innovate in products and services,” said Teppo Hemiä, Wirepas CEO.
Felix Marchal, Executive Vice President of GNSS and Short Range Wireless, said:
“Earlier this year, Telit formed its Short-Range and GNSS business unit to deliver complete sensor-to-cloud or sensor-to-gateway-to-cloud solutions. These three modules and the partnership with Wirepas are great examples of what our new business unit will add to the Telit total IoT solution portfolio.”
“Telit now offers the most complete integrated set of IoT products and services – and unmatched IoT know-how – addressing the needs of the most demanding segments, such as automotive and industrial, on a global scale. The products we are launching here meet the stringiest Telit quality and robustness standards.”
Telit is also introducing new developer kits to enable rapid prototyping of solutions based on the new and upcoming modules. All three products follow the Telit tradition of excellence in radio-frequency (RF) design and performance in industrial-grade environmental conditions.
