Moduino ESP32 controller now powered with Pycom modules

New base platforms for Moduino device

Revised version of TECHBASE’s Moduino edge controller offers now support and compatibility with wide range of Pycom’s compute modules with built-in communication interfaces, e.g. LoRa, Sigfox, NarrowBand-IoT / LTE cat. M1/NB1 and WiFi/BT4.2, similarly to standard Moduino devices, powered by Espressif’s ESP32-WROVER module.

With new Moduino platform you can choose from variety of Pycom modules to power the unit, in order to receive specific wireless features. At the present day Moduino supports these models:

    • WiPy 3.0 with WiFi & Bluetooth 4.2
    • SiPy with WiFi/BT and Sigfox
    • LoPy4 with WiFi/BT and LoRa, Sigfox
    • GPy with WIFi/BT and NarrowBand-IoT / LTE cat.M1/NB1
    • FiPy with WIFi/BT and LoRa, Sigfox, NarrowBand-IoT / LTE cat.M1/NB1

If physical network connection is a must, you can always choose standard Moduino ESP32 with Ethernet expansion module to ensure communication via LAN. Of course the possibility to choose wired-to-wireless communication is also available with the Moduino configurator.

All Pycom-based Moduino solutions are compatible with wide range of interface expansions for standard Moduino ESP32 platform, e.g. RS-232/485, Analog I/Os, Digital I/Os, Relay, CAN and many more, including SuperCap & OLED screen options. You can find the whole list of available expansions here: https://iiot-shop.com/product/moduino/

ESP32-WROVER-B

Moduino X now with ESP32-WROVER-B support

Upgraded Espressif’s ESP32 module platform for Moduino X

Espressif, a manufacturer of popular ESP32-based IoT solutions, has developed a new version of the ESP32-WROVER module, called ESP32-WROVER-B. Updated module, in addition to the dual-core LX6 microprocessor, has now twice the amount of RAM, compared to previous version of the WROVER module. The ESP32 module can work with Pseudo Static RAM. Up to now, modules with up to 4MB RAM have been the most common. Recently Espressif Systems introduced a new ESP32-WROVER-B module, which is equipped with up to 8MB SPI PSRAM.

ESP32-WROVER-B

The new module is compatible with TECHBASE’s Moduino X series of IIoT devices. The system works with MicoPython, ESP-IDF (freemask based on FreeRTOS with light-weight Internet Protocol), Mongoose OS, Zephyr Project and is Arduino compatible. ESP32-WROVER-B is based on the ESP32-D0WD system with dimensions 5 x 5 mm, which replaced the earlier ESP32-D0WDQ6 (6 x 6 mm). The ESP32-D0WD model has 2 CPU cores that can be controlled independently. The CPU clock frequency can also be configured in the range of 80 to 240 MHz.

Updated Moduino X with ESP32-WROVER-B also comes with variety of Flash Memory available: 4MB, 8MB and 16MB.

Connection protocols & MQTT data management solutions

Various data connection protocols & MQTT data management solutions

To take full advantage of the TECHBASE’s Industrial IoT Ecosystem’s capabilities, you can build your own installation, depending on project requirements, choosing from variety of Gateways (Gateway Layer) to control data collected from an array of Moduino edge devices (Sensor Layer). Moduino can be programmed in one of open software platforms, e.g. MicroPython to gather the data and send it, using MQTT standard protocol, further to Gateway and/or cloud service.

Both Moduino ESP32 and Pycom-based Moduino supports open & free libraries, shared by Pycom, tested and approved by constantly growing ESP32/Arduino community. TECHBASE company has plans to provide an open-source platform for managing services & remote configuration and control of endpoint Moduino devices using MicroPython.

MQTT Data Management

Wide range of protocol support

All TECHBASE’s solution can be empowered with iMod software incl. protocol support for industrial interfaces, e.g. M-Bus, Modbus, SNMP, MQTT. iMod software works seamlessly with Node-RED using MQTT protocol, allowing use of bacnet and direct control over devices I/Os with Google’s platform-neutral protobuf – extensible mechanism for serializing structured data and zeroMQ controls to connect the code in any modern language, on any platform. The protocol drivers library can be expanded with CODESYS development system to support PROFIBUS, CANopen, EtherCAT, PROFINET and EtherNet/IP.
