Cassia Networks X2000 Bluetooth Gateway recently underwent a field test designed to compare its internal omnidirectional antennas with external antennas using external antenna cables. The client was looking for a Bluetooth gateway that could pick up signals from sensors deep within an aggregate mine tunnel.
The results of the field test proved that the X2000 can easily provide a solution for this type of environment, even without external antennas. The X2000 is designed to detect sensor signals and continuously pass the data to the cloud for monitoring, allowing the client to collect sensor data without having to spend unnecessary time in the tunnel.
The field test also revealed that the X2000 performs well in an environment with many obstacles and machineries. It was able to easily collect sensor data without the need for external antennas. This is great news for the client, as it means they can safely and quickly collect sensor data in a challenging environment.
The team logged a number of distance range tests using Cassia’s X2000 external antennas, and compared these distance tests to the overall signal strengths. The range testing was conducted at distances of 5, 10, and 205 meters. Moreover, the team benefited from identifying what the best practices are for antenna positioning, and what antenna mounting protocols to use to yield the best signal strength for this aggregate mine tunnel.
Overall, the field test was a great success. It showed us that the X2000 is a reliable and efficient Bluetooth gateway, even in tough conditions. With the X2000, clients can easily and safely collect sensor data, making it the perfect choice for a range of indoor and outdoor environments for industrial applications.
