Send and receive
PingPong offers different possibilities for transmitting
and receiving data. „Always on\ is the motto, whether in fixed state via a
wired Ethernet connection, or on the go with the built-in GSM module via the
mobile network. Thus, the PingPong guarantees the continuous transmission of
data, which is e.g. detected by a sensor as well as received data to control
for example a relay.
The PingPong can be connected to a wide variety of
sensors to process and evaluate digital and analog measurements. Thus, for
example, temperature values collected by a temperature sensor can be
transferred via analog input to the PingPong.
With the digital inputs it can be distinguished between
two measurements, comparable with a yes / no query. An application example is
the measurement via contact sensor that detects whether a door is opened or
Even industrial sensors in the 4-20mA range can be
connected to the PingPong via current measurement Inputs. These can provide
highly precise measurement data of temperature, power, humidity, etc., and are
essential for industrial applications.
The 1-Wire Interface provides a connection for digital
sensors based on the Maxim protocol for 1-wire enabled devices. The application
areas include temperature and humidity measurements, as well as data logging.
With the CAN interface, PingPong can also interact with
CAN enabled devices. For example, with the CANBUS interface of a vehicle. In
this case data can be measured and read for analysis. For example, the CAN
interface can read messages in J1939 protocol and get information about the
car's speed, RPM, current fuel level, etc…
The PingPong can be used to remote control processes via
its outputs. The most common case is the use of the digital outputs in
combination with a relay which can either enable or disable the power supply of
an application. Examples include turning on and off of machines, motors and
Track and Trace
With its built-in GNSS module the PingPong can also be
used to position, motion and determining the speed and acceleration. Especially
in combination with the aforementioned points - telemetry and remote control -
numerous possibilities for applications in the logistics sector are imaginable.
One application example is the optimization of routes and fuel consumption in
fleet management. If a vehicle consumes an unusually large amount of fuel over
a short distance, this can cause a warning message that guides the vehicle to
the nearest car service station.
