Wireless Gateway

HiTag™ dataloggers are typically used in conjunction with the Xsense® wireless gateway.  The gateway will read data from the dataloggers and will pass the data to Xsense® Cloud.

The operation of getting data from the datalogger to the gateway begins with the gateway announcing its presence. When the HiTag™ hears the gateway, it will attempt to synchronize with the gateway.  If successful, the HiTag™ will pass data to the gateway.  These steps happen automatically.

The gateway will store the data of the HiTag™ in a buffer, if it is not connected to the internet.  When it is connected to the internet, it will send the data in encrypted format to Xsense® Cloud.

The Xsense® wireless gateway (CU2) comes in several versions.

  • LAN Ethernet connectivity,
  • Cellular only (2G or 3G) connectivity, and
  • Dual LAN and cellular (2G or 3G) connectivity.

The cellular option affords speedy installation will keeping the gateways separated from corporate internal networks.

The gateway contains a large internal battery to ensure continued operation while being carried about, during a power outage, or when the power supply drops, such as in the evening when powered by a solar panel.

The range of the RF signal of the gateway is about 100 meter line of site.
