Hardwire Trigger

The Hardwire Trigger data logger is the first multi-connection device designed for the Internet of Things.

Connected to the Hardwire Cloud platform, it allows you to create IoT solutions in minutes without needing to design new hardware.

WiFi connectivity

Native WiFi support can be used to connect the data logger to the platform or to interface with local sensors and devices.

Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy

Bluetooth LE technology, supported on all versions of the Hardwire Trigger, allows you to capture information from local sensors.

GSM connectivity

An optional 2G modem is available, ensuring the correct connection to the platform even in areas where WiFi is not available.

GPS location

The GPS device is a very useful option to geolocate in real time the position of the data logger, typically used in moving applications.

Backup battery

Internal battery is an option that allows you to work for a period of time even without external power, and notify the platform of the lack of power sources.

I/O and RS-485

Collect information from sensors and other on-site devices, through a series of analog and digital I/O and RS-485 expansion bus with Modbus support.

Available in 3 versions

The Hardwire Trigger data logger is available in three versions with different connectivity, I/O, and peripherals.

WiFi Bluetooth GSM GPS RS-485 Battery
Suitable for all environments where a WiFi network is already present, such as domotics, industry or building automation
WiFi Bluetooth - - RS-485 Battery Opt.
Suitable for all environments where there is no wireless connectivity, typically outdoor and disadvantaged areas
WiFi Bluetooth GSM - RS-485 Battery Opt.
Not only for those who need to track assets movement, but also in static contexts where geographic location is important
