The Radio Dongle is the main element of the HARDWARIO TOWER radio network. This product works as a gateway for the HARWDARIO nodes. It looks like a USB stick. You can plug it to your desktop, Raspberry Pi, or Turris Omnia. Also, you can look at it as an access point for up to 32 HARDWARIO nodes.
The Core Module is the key element of every HARDWARIO node. It has a 32-bit ARM microcontroller with 192 kB of flash memory and 20 kB of RAM. Besides the integrated sub-GHz radio for the 868/915 MHz band, it also features a digital temperature sensor, 3D accelerometer, and security chip.
Cloony is compact version of the Core Module. The size is 23 x 23 mm. It has a 32-bit ARM microcontroller with 192 kB of flash memory and 20 kB of RAM. Besides the integrated sub-GHz radio for the 868/915 MHz band, it also features a digital temperature sensor and security chip.
Mini Battery Module¶
The Mini Battery Module is designed as a power supply source for the battery-operated units. The integrated low-power boost converter provides an excellent efficiency from the two AAA 1.5 V Alkaline cells. It features a bottom-entry socket, so the overall profile of the unit you build remains low.
The Battery Module is designed as a power supply source for the battery-operated units. The integrated low-power buck converter provides an excellent efficiency from the four AAA 1.5 V Alkaline cells. It also features an extra 5-pin socket where you can connect a HARDWARIO tag.
The Power Module allows you to connect a 5 V DC power adapter via a standard 2.1 mm power jack socket. It features a high-current relay (230 V AC / 16 A) to control your appliances. Also you can drive a digital LED strip with it (compatible with WS2812B).
The PIR Module works as a motion detector operating on a passive infrared (PIR) principle. Typical usage of the PIR Module can be a wireless motion detector located on a wall or ceiling. The module is equipped with an ultra-low-power digital sensor from Excelitas’ the DigiPyro® family.
The Climate Module integrates 4 environmental sensors temperature, humidity, light intensity and atmospheric pressure. All sensors are digital, feature low-power operating modes and connected by using the I²C bus. It is a great product for environmental monitoring, weather stations, etc.
The LCD Module uses a unique technology the so-called memory display developed by Sharp. It provides a resolution of 128 x 128 pixels in 1.28 inch size. It implements an ultra-low-power display controller, so you can have active graphical display with a long service time from batteries.
The Encoder Module can be useful for controlling your applications. The module is equipped with a high-quality rotary encoder manufactured by Bourns and features high reliability and durability. The rotary encoder is also equipped with a push-button switch.
The Relay Module is suitable for switching small power appliances e.g. LED strip, cooling fan, siren, buzzer, garage door opener, etc. It features a bistable (or latching) relay and that makes it suitable for battery-operated applications - the relay simply remembers its state.
The Sensor Module features up-to four universal inputs or outputs on a pluggable terminal block with 1-Wire bus master support. The terminals can be used as both analog and digital input/output. For example you can connect various external digital, analog or resistive sensors. Also, you can communicate with other devices on a 1-Wire bus.
The two terminals - A on the left, B on the right are connected to the HARDWARIO header signals P4/A4/DAC0 and P5/A5/DAC1.
The Sigfox Module allows you to communicate to the Sigfox wireless network, a global network made for the IoT. This technology makes it possible to communicate from a battery-powered device directly to server, even for several years. The Sigfox Module uses radio frequency 868 MHz.
Let’s measure and influence your environment with HARDWARIO micro:bit bundle. It contains everything you need to start using sensors from Industrial IoT Kit in micro:bit environment.
Run the device on batteries. Measure temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide (CO2), atmospheric pressure, light intensity, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), motion or control other devices using a Relay Module.
The bundle also includes a 1-hour STEM webinar.
The 1-Wire Module allow you to connect I²C devices over a distance of several meters. The I²C protocol is encapsulated to a 1-Wire protocol. The data are protected using 16-bit CRC. You can use the Sensor Module to create a 1-Wire bus master.
The Cover Module is a simple mechanical part that helps to cover the front face of the HARDWARIO electronics (larger format 88 x 55 mm). It looks great when combined with one of our 3D-printed enclosure. You simple snap it in the HARDWARIO socket header using the bottom pins.
The Tag Module makes it possible to connect up to six HARDWARIO tags. There are two independent I²C buses (I2C0 and I2C1) - one on each side. This allows to connect two tags of the same I²C address to a single HARDWARIO node. It also features pull-up resistors on SDA/SCL signals of I2C1 bus.
The Base Module works as a mechanical stand for the HARDWARIO units. With the exception of the Battery Module, you can plug any other HARDWARIO TOWER - Industrial IoT Kit module into a standardized socket available on the Base Module.
It also features a prototyping area for soldering your circuits.
The Breadboard Module offers an easy way to connect any HARDWARIO TOWER - Industrial IoT Kit module to your breadboard. The narrowed breakout provides more space for wiring and prototyping. The precision pin headers from the bottom side allow smooth insertion to your breadboard and do not stress the breadboard’s sockets.
The Probe Module allows you to easily hook up an oscilloscope logic analyzer on any signal of the HARDWARIO TOWER header. Sometimes during the development, you need to analyze the signals and see what’s going on. And this module makes the task fast and convenient.
