Our latest posts about new products and projects developed


As part of the continuous improvement of products and services Advanticsys provides within its catalog, the evolution of best-selling UCM-316 data concentrator is released today. This enhancement converts UCM-316 into a truly industrial gateway bridging the gap between industry and Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm.

For some years, IoT is spreading throughout our world, from our smartphones to even our appliances. However, its penetration in the industry is limited due to the lack of compatibility between legacy systems and new protocols. Now, Advanticsys adds to its Modbus data concentrator the ability to easily integrate into any IoT software platform using the Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol.

MQTT is a light-weight M2M (Machine-to-Machine) connectivity protocol able to send data in messages with very low bandwidth requirements.

Within this protocol, three main components can be found:

  • MQTT Broker: is the central element able to receive and forward data.
  • MQTT Publisher: is the data generator. In our case, UCM-316 plays this role.
  • MQTT Subscriber: within this architecture, it represents any hardware, software or even physical person consuming those data.

Advanticsys introduces its first Industrial IoT gateway

To the existing features (microSD storage, FTP client/server and csv file generation), MQTT support is added to perform periodic data, real time values with sending period as low as 1 second and notifications and alarms based on registers values Data transmission is done through JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) formatted messages.

Advanticsys recently presented European Energaware project during the Sustainable Energy Week Conference organized by the European Commission in Brussels from 19th to 25th June 2017.

The main objective of the EnerGAware project is to reduce energy consumption and emissions by 15-30% in a social housing pilot in Plymouth (UK) by increasing tenants’ understanding and engagement in energy efficiency through the development of a serious game. Thus, energy savings virtually achieved in the game and in reality (through the real-time measurement of household energy consumption) enable progression in the serious game. Social media features offer users a platform to share their achievements, compete with each other, give energy advice and join together to form virtual energy communities. Since February 2015, a total of 100 social houses are participating in the pilot.

A plug&play wireless energy monitoring kit was designed and deployed by Advanticsys in each household. Little intervention was needed thanks to the selection of suitable devices to collect consumption information from legacy gas and electricity meters as well as to group data collected and send to the remote data server for further analysis. Therefore, the monitoring infrastructure used in the project is as follows:

  • Wireless M-Bus LED pulse sensor for electricity meters.
  • Wireless M-Bus OCR camera sensor for gas meters.
  • Data collection cabinet including our DM-108 wireless bridges, supporting both Wireless M-Bus and Modbus RTU and our UCM-316 data concentrator. They logged and sent meters data to the cloud platform in 15 minutes intervals.

Energaware, coordinated by Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña, has been funded by the Horizon 2020 European Union Research and Innovation Programe, and its duration is three years. More information can be found at project dedicated website .



Advanticsys extends its projects portfolio with an automated meter reading project in one of the largest District Heating/Cooling networks in the south of Europe, operated by Spanish company Sampol. In particular, this project, located in Palma (Majorca – Spain) provides heating and cooling to the Balearic Islands University (UIB) and the Balearic Islands Innovation Park “Parc Bit”. Built in 2000, it comprises a tri-generation plant providing heating and/or cooling to 25 different customers.

Sampol, as DHC operator, requested an end-to-end solution for remotely collecting meters data previously installed. Advanticsys deployed a system based on its datalogger MPC-330 with M-Bus interfaces to read data from Kamstrup meters and to send them periodically through csv files to a remote server. In parallel, a Modbus TCP connection was enabled to support real time data collection from company SCADA.

Through this project, Sampol expects to improve network efficiency and as well as the simplicity of securely collecting data.

ADVANTICSYS completed the deployment of a complete air quality monitoring solution at Vélez-Málaga, located in the South of Spain. The Municipality requested to have online information concerning different gases concentration values so that they could take appropriate actions when needed.

Thus, following customer requirements, ADVANTICSYS proposed a monitoring station composed by the following sensors: PM10, O3, NO2, SO2, CO and H2S. Monitoring stations are able to push data periodically through a GPRS connection to the Advanticsys® Concordia Cloud Platform , hosted in ADVANTICSYS servers.
Its features include:

  • SCADA with real time data update
  • Data collected stored in cloud database including maintenance and backup features
  • Communications tested continuously, registering events and generating alarms if link to the station is lost
  • Alarm sending function through email
  • Alarms defined based on maximum, minimum or band thresholds
  • Historical data shown in graphs and tables
  • Data can be exported to csv files
  • Multi-monitor support for control center

The cloud platform is developed as a web server so supervision can be done from any remote location connected to the Internet with no need to install any additional software, apart from a web explorer.

ADVANTICSYS introduces a new Long Range Wireless Modbus Bridge: DM-108 . The new device extends the typical wireless mesh network capabilities to a longer range, achiving up to 5 Km distance thanks to its multihop features.

The main role of the DM-108 is to act as 868MHz wireless bridge inside traditional wired RS485 Modbus RTU installations, providing the limited point-to-point RS485 networks with the versatility and ease of installation of wireless sensor networks (WSN). Wireless transmissions are AES-128 bits encrypted.

The DM-108 is fully Modbus RTU compatible, which means that any PLC, controller or PC can use its wireless features through the use of standard Modbus RTU commands.

The WM Config Tool software eases the process of configuring the device.
