NEW! xGATEWAY 3 - Releasing Q2 2023

Best-In-Class Wi-Fi HaLow & BLE IoT Application Support

xTAG Sensor

We are working hard to finish the 3rd generation of our xGATEWAY IoT product. Prototypes are being developed now with expected release in Q2. Features:

  • Supports 1000’s of sensors to distances of up to 2 km (over a mile) reducing capital expenditure and operating costs
  • Provides Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), 802.11ah (Wi-Fi HaLow) & USB connectivity to plug and play with a wide range of IoT sensors
  • Supports long distance asset scan (open air BLE:1 km & HaLow:2 km)
  • Is incredibly secure with an updated Trusted Platform Module supporting the latest TPM 2.0 cryptography standards for secure access control and data encryption
  • Includes built-in positioning tech (GNSS with GPS & others) to prove public IoT network coverage and support mobile applications
  • Adds IoT connectivity to legacy machinery via standard industrial protocols
  • Connects any wireless or wired Deviceworx or third-party IoT Sensor to many cloud options for fast & comprehensive IoT infrastructure setup
  • Supports local data access via a published API (open data access standards OPC UA or Sparkplug B messaging on MQTT are also available)
  • Handles Linux-based “Edge Processing” that can include AI using Machine Language (ML) standards such as TensorFlow, Python, C# (via .NET), C++, etc.
  • Runs virtually anywhere with support for extended operating temperatures & Nema 4 /4X waterproof enclosure with DIN rail mount

xTAG HaLow - The World's First 802.11ah WiFi-HaLow IoT Sensors

xTAG Sensor

Deviceworx has partnered with the worlds leading 802.11ah WiFi (code-name HaLow) chipset vendor, Newracom, to build IoT Gateway and Sensor devices that connect using HaLow.

HaLow dramatically improves the IoT landscape by supporting the connection of many more sensors to a single gateway over longer distances when compared to LoRaWAN and Bluetooth technologies. Deviceworx is updating the xTAG Sensor and xGATEWAY family of devices to include HaLow functionality. By leveraging the Newracom NRC7292 radio SOC, 1000's of xTAG HaLow Sensors can connect to a single xGATEWAY HaLow and sense:

  • Vibration
  • Shock
  • Angle
  • Environment (Temperature/Pressure/Humidity)
  • Gas (Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs plus Volatile Sulphur Compounds or VSCs)
  • Ventilation Effectiveness (C02 in Human Breath)

Both xTAG HaLow Sensors and xGATEWAY HaLow devices, with cloud-connectivity, have been released and have shipped to customers.

xTAG Ventilation Sensors - Monitor Ventilation & Improve Covid-Safety

xTAG Ventilation Sensor

Minimizing the risk of Covid transmission within indoor spaces is critical. Deviceworx has partnered with Sensirion AG to build an accurate, battery powered Carbon Dioxide (CO2) sensor that can be very quickly deployed within public and private spaces including:

  • Commercial spaces including Coffee Shops, Retail Outlets, etc
  • Offices
  • Schools

Measuring CO2 within human breath provides a direct indication of how effective ventilation is at reducing Covid spread - in real time.

Whenever CO2 levels rise above safe thresholds, ventilation should be increased. This may be done in real time when using measured CO2 values from xTAG Ventilation Sensors or it may be done on a schedule that is based on reporting from xTAG Ventilation Sensors. The CDC recomends keeping CO2 levels below 800 ppm to ensure the oppourtunity for Covid transmission is reduced. See this CDC ref. Note that typical C02 concentrations in air (when not influenced by human breath) is commonly 400 ppm.

xTAG Ventilation Sensors can connect to the Deviceworx Cloud in 2 ways. They can record data and then pass that data into the cloud when users connect to each Sensor over Bluetooth using the Android xTAG Explorer App. Or, permenantly mounted xGATEWAY devices can collect xTAG data every few min for reporting and real-time data processing that includes updating ventilation settings.

Critically - reducing Ventilation settings when CO2 levels are well below a safe threshold can dramatically reduce heating costs. For example, there is no need to heavily ventilate a space that is empty or only has 1-2 people. Overventilation can prove to be incredibly expensive.

Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions

xTAG Sensor

Deviceworx has developed an IoT ecosystem of Industrial IoT Sensors (sometimes called IoT "Things") and IoT Gateways. xTAG sensors support measuring physical properties such as vibration, temperature, pressure, humidity and a variety of harmful gases. xGATEWAYs have wireless and wired plug and play connectivity to xTAGs to collect data as well as IoT Edge computing and cloud connections for sensor management and data reporting, and are Microsoft Azure certified.


xGATEWAYs can also acquire data from 3rd-party sensors as well as legacy control equipment to "retrofit" IoT functionality and breathe new life into existing control installations. Microsot Azure IoT Hub support comes pre-instaled on all xGATEWAYs, but they can be connected to any cloud with minimal software updates.
