B&B Electronics introduces its Wzzard Intelligent Sensing Platform

Wzzard is a wireless sensor connectivity platform featuring edge decision-making. It was designed with the aim of assisting integrators, value-added resellers and service providers to efficiently develop and deploy secure, smart, self-powered IoT applications in remote and demanding environments.

Unlike a traditional supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) application where sensors and edge devices are simply passive conduits for raw data, edge decision-making enables a more effective network. Using iterative control limits and gateway data aggregation to support applications closer to the network edge, the Wzzard brings this intelligence to the network starting at the sensor, for more responsive and reliable networks.

The team behind Wzzard claim that the platform’s technologies, protocols and hardware work together to reduce the expertise and time it takes for integrators to develop scalable IoT solutions. They include:

  • Wzzard Intelligent Edge Nodes connect to industry-standard sensors
  • SmartMesh IP wireless sensing technology enables auto-forming, self-healing, self-sustaining networks
  • MQTT – a simple messaging transport protocol created for M2M/IoT applications over wireless networks
  • B&B’s Spectre router serves as the gateway, connecting equipment and devices to the Internet or Intranet over wired Ethernet or wireless cellular connections
