Owa3x integrated computers

Owa3X is a family of flexible and powerful integrated computers based on Linux O.S.

Complete control, even remotely

Equipped with numerous wired and wireless interfaces, they provide complete supervision capabilities for remote management and monitoring.

Technologically advanced

Thanks to the combination of a set of technologies and features, it is the ideal solution for the development of telemetry and remote control applications.

Vehicle IOT Gateway

Embedded linux platform

Fleet management datalogger

Iot Gateway with:

GPS / 2G, 3G or 4G modem / CANBus / Bluetooth / WiFi / IP67

Industral grade IoT gateway

Datlogger CANbus

Remote management and monitoring

Snowploughs were equipped with owa33A devices that collects data from the GPS regarding vehicle location. Other data info is received via CAN bus and contain to the salt dispenser angle, elevation, capacity, temperatures, etc and report it to the remote server every 10 secs.

Fleet Management

Track-and-trace solution for enterprises that must support their logistical processes (journey records and vehicle statistics), using the owa3x KLINE to connect to Digital Tachograph Platform; aggregating GPRS and GPS information with external Data Terminal, PDA, audio handset.

Asset management

Application for mobile and fixed safe box monitoring. The owa11A read box position and report it  periodically adding the box status. owa11A generates alarms based on different events: movement, impact, power fail or in/out of geographical zone.

Fleet management

Fleet managem application for the Local Police department where police cars are equipped with owa33A Rugged, which send the positioning GPS data through GPRS network, so that the vehicles can be tracked and monitored constantly from the headquarters.

Remote Monitoring & Telemetry

An RFID temperature sensor located at the wheel bearing sends info to owa3X gateway using Bluetooth technology. Temperature and position information are constantly monitored and sent to the back office to avoid temperature increase The solution has cause a sensible decrease of passenger complaints, expensive repairs on wheels and tracks and prevented some dangerous situations with programmed predictive maintenance.

Remote monitoring & Tracking

Solution for tracking and remote monitoring of mobile shops. More than 200 mobile coffee shops distributed over 13 countries around the world, all connected with company headquarter through an owa11A gateway.

Remote Monitoring & Telemetry

Utility company collecting data from remote meters (telemetry and event monitoring) connected using ModBus over RS485 and Ethernet to owa3x gateway. Every bulk of data is sent hourly to the server backend using the 3G UMTS mobile network.
