November 2023 by Marc Jacob
Black Box® announced the release of its next-generation IoT solution purpose-built for infrastructure monitoring: the AlertWerks AW3000 wireless gateway. Supporting both long-range wireless communication (up to 10km) via the LoRaWAN protocol and short-range wireless communication via Bluetooth, this turnkey IoT solution can be integrated with a limitless range of wireless sensors, virtual sensors, dashboards and analytics.
AlertWerks AW3000 actively monitors conditions, records on-site events, and automates key actions remotely to increase efficiency, prevent system failures and downtime, maintain safety and security, and optimize the physical environment.
Ideal for manufacturing, distributed networks and smart buildings, the AlertWerks AW3000 enables users to link to physical sensors, configure virtual sensors, watch values on a browser-based dashboard, set notifications and alarms, and configure automatic actions. Additionally, for the ultimate intelligent control room solution, the AW3000 is integrated with Black Box’s industry-leading Emerald® KVM-over IP products. With links to environmental and activity sensors, the AlertWerks AW3000 facilitates active remote monitoring of conditions to enforce security, maximize efficiency and streamline operations.
While other gateways only push data to the cloud, the AlertWerks AW3000 wireless gateway also maintains all the needed intelligence on-premises, delivering data via the fast, scalable LoRaWAN/BLE platform. All data is stored on an open platform with an accessible SQL database. The gateway offers customizable dashboards and provides visualization tools including maps and floorplans in 2D or 3D.
