Mouser adds Bosch sensor for environmental data for industry 4.0

Distributor, Mouser Electronics, now stocks the Connected Industrial Sensor Solution (CISS) from Bosch. The Bosch CISS is a robust, multi-sensor device designed to enable internet of things (IoT) applications in harsh environments, using MEMS technology to detect vibration and acceleration and other environmental conditions.

The Bosch CISS integrates a gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, temperature/humidity/air pressure sensor, microphone, and light sensor. Engineers can activate or deactivate each sensor individually and configure the sensors’ sampling rates and thresholds to suit different applications. The CISS features a 32-bit Arm Cortex-M3 microcontroller with 1Mbyte of internal flash, as well as a Bluetooth low energy radio and USB connectivity for data transmission.

The CISS provides data to optimise maintenance processes and enhance productivity, and can be integrated to a range of hardware-agnostic gateways and clouds. The device allows for monitoring of multiple conditions simultaneously to provide improved predictive maintenance, while both live and historic data can be supplied over the Virtual CISS app or the cloud.

The compact, IP54-rated device offers an operating temperature range of -20 to +80 degrees C, making it suitable for Industry 4.0 applications, including preventative maintenance, industrial retrofitting, digital twinning, and condition monitoring.
