Our company, WiseAccess (www.wiseaccess.com), have been working in the development of a new version of our IoT remote unit (Wisebox), using G30 and G80 SoC.
For more than 10 years our Wisebox were based on DIGI’s Rabbit Core Modules (formerly Z-World), that proved to be very robust and reliable, but pricey and with limited capabilities, so in 2015 we started looking for alternatives until we found Cortex M micros. During 2016 we tried development kits from several suppliers until we selected G30 and G80 SoC from GHI, mainly because its documentation, examples, and fast (and rich) response to the Forum posts.
We were new to .NETMF, but using Visual Studio seemed to be a plus as a development accelerator, wich turned to be so (but not before we learned, the hard way, to cope with dynamic objects and the Garbage Collector, sigh…).
This week we reached our first goal and we have a set of 12 G30 and G80 based Wiseboxes ready to begin field testing in customer’s locations: LPG (liquid propane gas) tank level monitoring, meteorological stations monitoring, rural electrical power distribution network and a metropolitan water distribution network.
I am attaching photos of our Beta Test units:
- G30 Wisebox M4E (Entry)
- G30 Wisebox M4P (Power)
- G80 Wisebox M4F (Full).
And also a comparison table to give you a general idea of these products.
Our web site is only in Spanish (sorry for that) but in the near future (end of this month) we will publish “Wisebox M4 User Guide” in Spanish and English.
