Wireless transmission module
The wireless transmission module is a module that realizes wireless transmission by using wireless technology, and it is widely used in various industrial fields.
The wireless transmission module independently developed by VEICHI is mainly a GPRS data transmission module. It is based on mobile cellular technology, designed according to industry standards, integrated positioning and data processing in one module, small size, easy to install, suitable for various industrial sites. The company has launched a number of GPRS modules to meet the needs of different industries and create maximum value for customers. At present, the company has built-in and external GPRS modules, including S200-GPRS (B), GPRS-D, GT89-V, AC300-GPRS and other products. The company's GPRS data transmission module has the following main functions:
Auto registration: After the module is powered on, it will automatically request registration from the server.
Heartbeat detection: Sends module online status information to the server periodically.
SMS function: Use the SMS to monitor the internal parameters of the module.
Transparent transmission: Supports transparent transmission of data, making it easy for customers to customize non-standard protocols.
Remote lock machine: Remote lock machine (optional function) can be implemented in specific industries.
Real-time positioning: The module supports real-time upload of GPS and base station positioning to keep track of the location of the device.
Real-time positioning: The module supports real-time upload of GPS and base station positioning to keep track of the location of the device.Remote upgrade: The module supports remote upgrade, which can be upgraded by one button on the WEB platform.
Fault reporting: When the module or device fails, it reports to the platform in real time.
SIM card: Support SIM card access in different countries, set the internal APN to quickly switch to the local network.
GPRS module communication process:
1. The GPRS module and the device are connected through the serial port RS485 to collect device data.
2. After processing, the GPRS packet data is sent to the GSM base station, and finally reaches the destination gateway server end.
3. The communication between the GPRS module and the gateway server adopts the UDP protocol of SOCKET.
4. The gateway server returns a response after receiving the instruction to ensure that the command is successful.
The data processing layer includes three parts: gateway server, database and application server. It adopts key technologies such as distributed deployment and high concurrent processing to improve system performance and concurrency.
1. Distributed deployment: Based on the processing power and performance bottleneck of a single physical server, the system cannot adopt the functional modular integration design, and the distributed file service is deployed to multiple different physical servers to improve the data processing and storage capabilities.
2. High concurrent processing: The system supports simultaneous concurrent communication between the batch terminal and the server. The use of multi-threading technology has improved data computing capabilities. In addition, the use of caching technology, shielding frequent and database access caused I/O load pressure, moving part of the data to the memory area, the internal data exchange speed is much higher than the speed of reading the disk, greatly improving the system performance.
1. Gateway server: As a transfer station for data transmission, on the one hand, the data collected by the GPRS module is transmitted to the application server and stored data, and on the other hand, the client converts the command operated by the WEB or the mobile APP into a protocol and forwards it to the GPRS module. The gateway server is responsible for parsing logical processing such as data protocol packets, encryption and decryption, timeout processing, and filtering out error packets and illegal data packets. In order to improve security, the internal network and the external network are isolated, so that the external server cannot be directly accessed to ensure the security of the internal network server.
2. Database server: mainly used for storage and management of data, with fast and accurate query, data structure, data redundancy, data sharing, data independence and other advantages.
3. Application server: mainly used to analyze and process data, and provide various data interfaces for the platform display layer, such as management equipment, read and write parameters, view real-time data, view faults, and so on. All interfaces support JSON format for easy access and can also be extended to external interfaces for external system calls.
The platform display layer is mainly the WEB IOT system and mobile client APP independently researched and developed by the company.

At present, The IOT remote monitoring and management system of VEICHI has been successfully applied to air compressors, photovoltaic pump inverters and general-purpose inverters, covering construction, textile, packaging, water pump, machine tools, chemicals, cables and other industries. , to achieve intelligent, professional control and management.
Air compressor: Before using the Internet of Things system, the maintenance and monitoring of the equipment adopts the method of manual inspection. Due to the harsh environment of the air compressor, this will increase the difficulty of the customer's work and cause problems such as untimely maintenance. After the system, through real-time monitoring and management, all parameters can be optimized remotely; the early warning system pushes the fault information to the maintenance personnel at the first time, and timely repairs and replaces, greatly improving the real-time maintenance of the equipment, saving labor costs and maintenance costs, and Support historical data, fault statistics, provide big data applications, and provide data support for customer product upgrades.
Photovoltaic Water Pump Inverter: Before using the IOT system, the data is collected manually, which consumes a lot of manpower and time. When the wearing parts are overtime and the maintenance is not timely, it will bring safety risks to the operation of the equipment. After using the Internet of Things system, 7*24 hours data is automatically collected and uploaded without interruption, and the state of the water pump controller is grasped in real time; based on the remote expert consultation function of the on-site environment, the accident handling capability is improved, and the cloud computing is based on the service life of the spare parts provided by the manufacturer. Automatically calculate the remaining usage time and remind you to replace it.
