Saelig has introduced the Sol Chip Comm SCC-S433 - an autonomous, wireless, solar-driven module that powers, controls, and wirelessly connects multiple sensors to a central computer via the cloud.
This ultra-compact, maintenance-free solar-powered wireless module can be installed remotely for IoT applications that require autonomous operation, such as indoor/outdoor wireless sensor networks, and for applications such as precision agriculture, smart irrigation, environmental or asset monitoring, etc.
Sol Chip's innovative energy harvesting technology is designed to operate continuously for more than ten years with no maintenance requirements, removing the need to constantly replace and discard environmentally unfriendly batteries. Real-time sensor data can be viewed on a customizable web page from any location.
The SCC-S433 enables autonomous sensor operation without the need for replacing batteries or installing wiring. Solar-powered by Sol Chip's unique, patented LightBattery technology, this wireless tag sends multiple data transmissions per day to optimize agricultural and environmental needs in a compact, easy-install box.
The device is designed for low-cost, all-weather outdoor deployment, and multiple SCC-S433 modules can be wirelessly connected to a single Sol Chip Wireless Gateway over the license-free 433MHz band with a range of up to 1500yds. Automatic, periodic data upload from digital or analog sensors attached to the SCC-433 module are sent to the cloud to provide real-time data readings.
These can measure, for instance, soil moisture, soil temperature, ambient temperature, nutrient levels, water flow, and more, sending the data to a precision agriculture application server. This essential gathered data can be analyzed by software applications to make data-driven adjustments.
This can minimize field service visits, or optimize water and fertilization consumption to improve efficiency, profitability, and even crop yields. In addition to precision agriculture and smart irrigation, Sol Chip's SCC-S433 module can be utilized in smart cities, smart grids, asset tracking, parking meters, and other applications.
As a wireless device, the SCC-433 module eliminates the significant costs and time associated with replacing batteries, or deploying and maintaining wires connected to the sensors. The SCC's small size makes the product easy to install and move within any environment, while being unobtrusive and therefore not prone to theft.
The SCC-S433 Evaluation Kit includes two SCC-433 solar modules, two sensors (temperature/humidity), a wireless gateway, necessary accessories, access to third party web server and set-up support.
The components of the evaluation kit are pre-integrated, enabling the evaluation kit to be rapidly deployed for testing in applications that include agricultural, surveillance, environmental monitoring, asset tracking, etc.
Made in Israel by Sol Chip Ltd., an innovative solar products manufacturer, the SCC-S433 and the Evaluation Kit are available now from Saelig Co. Inc., Sol Chip's authorized North American distributor.

Researchers have taken an important step toward the long-sought goal of a quantum computer, which in theory should be capable of vastly faster computations than conventional computers, for certain kinds of problems. The new work shows that collections of ultracold molecules can retain the information stored in them, for hundreds of times longer than researchers have previously achieved in these ... read more
