eTracker True gateway between Sensors and the Cloud (GSM / CDMA)

eTracker

GroPoint

New

eTracker is a simple, power-efficient station controller with cellular (GSM / CDMA) telemetry which connects sensors directly to the cloud. A data logger is not required. Eliminating more expensive, complex, higher-power consuming data loggers and remote communication devices, stations for all types of monitoring applications can simply use eTracker and gain the ability to access data collected at any Internet based location.

eTracker is the gateway between the sensors and the cloud. Data communication and IT infrastructure are merged under one user interface experience. eTracker was designed from the ground up to embrace the current and future trends of cloud-based remote data acquisition and the "Internet of Things" (IoT) revolution. This paradigm shift centralizes all the historically isolated processes of remote configuration, programming, logging, and telemetry. Configuration, logging, data processing and analysis is now done in the cloud, eliminating time and cost in programming and maintaining expensive, complex data loggers and communication devices at each remote location.

- Direct Internet compliant data stream using HTTP / HTTPS.

- Sensor measurements stored on easily-accessible SD card.

- Cloud logging: all sensor data is forwarded to the cloud for processing, logging, retrieval and resulting action.

- Integrated sensor interface with ports: 4 analog, 4 pulse, SDI-12 (up to 62 SDI-12 sensors).

- Approximately 20X typical improvement in power vs. vs. typical cellular telemetry.

- Intelligent data management, data buffering, and network verification to ensure successful transmission of critical data.

eTracker: Cellular Gateway to the Cloud

Most of our pre-packaged systems are built around eTracker. The reasons? Setup is simple, all configuration and programming is done on the web, you do not need the data logger, and it works with any analog or SDI-12 sensors. Your data is backed up locally and automatically to the cloud-based destination of your choice.
