Digi International, (NASDAQ: DGII), a leading global provider of machine-to-machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity products and services, is the newest member of FieldComm Group.
Founded in 1985, Digi connects millions of sensors, valves, and components that make critical infrastructures function. The Minnetonka, MN, company helps customers create next-generation connected products, and deploy and manage critical communications infrastructures in demanding environments with high levels of security, reliability and performance. It provides the essential layer of M2M communications — the remote monitoring and management that critical applications depend on.
Digi introduced the Digi Connect Sensor in 2016. Prior to the launch, the company received feedback that adding the HART communication protocol to its product would greatly enhance its marketing and product value. This includes the ability to report & alarm on sensor health, and not just report sensor data.
Digi is seeking to connect and collaborate with other FieldComm member companies that are using HART in their sensors and machines. There are plans to implement HART technology in Digi’s cellular routers and gateways with I/O. The combination of valves, sensors and other devices that support HART with Digi’s wireless technology is a natural fit for the Industrial IoT, including applications found in oil and gas, water/wastewater, utilities, medical, transportation and retail.
