u‑blox and LumenRadio have combined their technologies to enable a new building automation solution. Developed by Produal, based in Finland, the new wireless Proxima room solution leverages wireless mesh technology and NINA‑B1 Bluetooth low energy module to increase flexibility and ease of installation. By offering a gateway to the cloud, it facilitates the development of new cloud‑based building automation solutions. Produal Proxima® combines the u‑blox NINA‑B1 module and LumenRadio's embedded operating system, MiraOS™.
With the release of wireless Produal Proxima® solution, Produal has taken the next step of building automation measurement and control and taking the lead into the wireless future.
Produal Proxima®builds on wireless mesh sensors that communicate over LumenRadio’s MiraOS™, capable of connecting hundreds of wireless nodes – sensors, actuators, gateways. The self‑healing network is designed to continue to perform when individual nodes fail, and can easily be adapted when building layouts change. Multi‑hop technology ensures that signals are transmitted across the entire network, guaranteeing coverage regardless of a building’s architecture.
LumenRadio’s patented Cognitive Coexistence technology ensures that communication is carried out on the least crowded and most optimal frequencies at any given time, increasing the reliability of the solution. FOTA (firmware‑over‑the‑air) updates via the u‑blox NINA‑B1 module ensure that all nodes in the network always run the latest firmware, future‑proofing and securing the entire solution.
