Vicotee Njord, the versatile Plug & Play IoT solution based on Linear Technology’s SmartMesh IPTM to be launched at Electronica 2016

Nov 8 2016 - MUNICH, GERMANY
  • Norwegian company Vicotee AS, part of the Virinco Group, announces the release of Vicotee Njord - a wireless mesh Internet of Things (IoT) sensor interface which utilizes SmartMesh IP from Linear Technology Corporation.


    Launching at Linear Technology’s booth 524-Hall A4 at the Electronica Fair 2016 Exhibition, this innovative IoT solution provides a vast array of opportunities for increased control and efficiency of physical infrastructure, made possible through the collection of data by sensors that can be located practically anywhere. The Vicotee Njord product is a module based solution with 4 different “out of the box” sensors: Temperature, Humidity, Ambient light and Acidometer. Furthermore, you can add four configured additional sensor interfaces. The Vicotee Njord solution interfaces with sensor hardware and cloud-based reporting dashboards, where data is analyzed and smart sensors can be configured over the air in real-time.

    Based on WATS – Virinco’s global quality and big data test management suite – the Vicotee Njord product is an off-the-shelf solution that will enable companies and public services to connect with traditional wired sensors over the Internet through a single wireless network. This is made possible through the use of Linear Technology’s SmartMesh® wireless sensor network technology, which provides low power, standards-based radio technology, time diversity, frequency diversity, and physical diversity to assure reliability, scalability, wire-free power source flexibility and ease-of-use.

    Vicotee Njord can be used wherever sensors are installed for monitoring purposes. Whether it is building automation, environmental monitoring, offshore, green energy, smart cities, healthcare, hospitals or homes, the Vicotee Njord network solution offers more than 99.999% network reliability even in the most challenging RF environments - equivalent to cabled network reliability!

    Designed as a ‘plug & play’ system, Vicotee Njord consists of wireless nodes, gateways, cloud services (APIs) and web based reporting tools, which can be delivered as a standalone package or integrated into third party solutions. Its nodes are developed for high efficiency and low power consumption, allowing batteries to last for 10 years. These standard nodes will support most sensor protocols out of the box.

    The name Vicotee Njord was taken from Norse mythology - Norse Sea God where the solution is IP66, highlighting the product’s water resistant feature.
