The IoT converter is a device capable of interconnecting different kinds of communication interfaces between each other and passing data through this interconnections.
Communication interfaces supported by IoT converter can be split into two groups. The first group consists of M-Bus, RS485, impulse inputs and Wireless M-Bus interfaces. The second one consists of LoRaWAN and NB-IoT interfaces which are used especially in the Internet of Things (IoT) concept. The IoT converter can be configured in a way to interconnect interfaces between groups mentioned above.
The IoT converter can be powered by different kind of batteries or using an external power supply..
Because of the variability of use cases covered by the IoT converter it is possible to easily configure converter via a PC application connected by a USB cable. For changes that need to be done when the device is in operation, the IoT converter supports remote configuration via LoRaWAN or NB-IoT interface.
The IoT converter also implements a LUA scripting interface that serves for algorithmic processing of measured data directly on the converter. An example of using a LUA scripting interface can be calculation of the water flow per unit of time and sending the data based on the results of comparison with previously set threshold. In this example the IoT converter would act as a water pipe failure monitor.
