TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance-critical applications, announced the launch of its S-2CONNECT™ Pro Tracking and Monitoring Kit for rapid IoT development. The kit can be deployed to connect, track, sense, and monitor applications such as asset tracking, cold chain, smart home, and broader industrial IoT scenarios.
By 2023, the number of global cellular IoT subscribers is forecasted to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 49.4 percent to reach 9.03 billion* as machine-to-machine devices drive demand for global network connections. To meet rising demand, speed to market is critical and a development kit can fast-track the process. Even experienced developers and integrators can benefit from solutions that provide the hardware, software, firmware, connectivity, and cloud-based services that reduce time-to-market.
The S-2CONNECT Pro Tracking and Monitoring Kit features “out-of-the-box” hardware from the TT Electronics S-2CONNECT™ family, including the S-2CONNECT™ Hub and S-2CONNECT™ Sense device, which incorporate temperature, humidity, light, and acceleration sensors. An embedded SIM with three months of cellular connectivity, a data package of 25MB per month, and a power supply with interchangeable blades for global use are also included.
The Pro Kit comes with access to cloud-based services provided by TT Electronics including database, MQTT broker, microservices, and firmware hosting. Access to the user interface for managing device configuration, provisioning, and monitoring is offered exclusively by the S-2CONNECT Portal for the duration of the subscription.
Kjell Karlsson, Managing Director for Connectivity at TT Electronics, commented: “While there are many starter kits on the market, our new S-2CONNECT Pro Tracking and Monitoring Kit provides a user-friendly, out-of-the-box approach that empowers developers, systems integrators, and OEMs to innovate and swiftly deploy industrial IoT solutions with embedded cellular connectivity. Our S-2CONNECT products are designed to deliver proof-of-concept solutions that can be quickly validated and scaled to meet demand, taking your product from concept to production seamlessly.”
