Analog Devices and Vicotee Demonstrate Wireless Solution Connecting Industrial Sensors to MindSphere at SPC IPC Drives Nuremberg, Germany – November 28, 2017 – Analog Devices, Inc. and Vicotee announced today they are demonstrating at SPC IPC Drives a wireless system that connects various industrial sensors to Siemens’ MindSphere, an open, cloud-based Internet of Things (IoT) operating system. The wireless system uses Vicotee’s wireless mesh IoT sensor interface based on Analog Devices’ SmartMesh IP TM wireless sensor network, and provides an off-theshelf solution enabling MindSphere customers to connect with traditional wired sensors over the internet through a single wireless network. The system provides ultra-low power, standards-based radio technology, time, frequency, and physical diversity to assure reliability, scalability, wire-free power source flexibility and ease of use. It can be used wherever and whichever sensors are installed for monitoring purposes, including smart cities, factories, hospitals and buildings.

The wireless system offers more than 99.99999 percent network reliability even in the most challenging RF environments, which is equivalent to wired network reliability. The demo can be viewed in the Siemens MindSphere Lounge.
