The VaiNet Access Point AP10 is a wireless networking hardware device for Vaisala's proprietary LoRa® based wireless technology: VaiNet. The AP10 can connect up to 32 VaiNet wireless data loggers (RFL100 Temperature & Humidity or RFL100 Temperature only) to Vaisala's viewLinc Enterprise Server software, version 5.X and later.
VaiNet communicates outside of more heavily trafficked 2.4 GHz bands, making the signal less vulnerable to interference. Additionally, VaiNet's low frequency signal means much longer range and better penetration in complex, obstructed environments like warehouses; at least 100 meters.
Once accepted in viewLinc, VaiNet data loggers stay synchronized, even in situations where other nearby VaiNet networks overlap. Redundancy is achieved through load distribution between VaiNet access points, which share multiple loggers in range.
VaiNet AP10 access points transfer data from the data loggers to viewLinc Enterprise Server. Both the access point and the software verify that the data is received correctly. Once the data is verified, it is stored to viewLinc's secure database and protected from tampering and loss.
"Thanks to Vaisala’s equipment, we have been able to produce a detailed set of measurements for our 15 experimental breeding chambers," says David Siaussat.
Raw materials and products used for diagnostics have very specific storage temperatures.
In June of 2020, a US-based drug manufacturer initiated an innovative project to conduct clinical trials on potential treatments for elderly COVID-19 patients.
In 2020, the condition monitoring was changed from traditional thermohygrometers to Vaisala’s viewLinc continuous condition monitoring system.
The Finnish Red Cross Logistics Centre in Tampere stores life-saving medical supplies that can be delivered to the scenes of catastrophes.
After evaluating all three systems, they chose the Vaisala viewLinc monitoring system. Johnson recalls there were three key reasons for the selection: data integrity, browser-based monitoring, and fast, easy reports.
