LogBox Wi-Fi is an IoT device with integrated data logger and Wi-Fi connectivity. It allows monitoring and recording of data remotely, in facilities with Wi-Fi infrastructure. The data can be accessed remotely, wirelessly and centralized through SCADA application, cloud dashboard or by NXperience software. Easy installation and accessibility are highlights of this device.
The device has three universal analog inputs and one digital input, that can operate as counter of pulses (flow sensor) or recorder of events (opening/closing doors). LogBox Wi-Fi has MQTT protocol to publish data into IoT brokers, Cloud or SCADA system, as well as Modbus TCP protocol to operate as slave into SCADA systems.
The device provides uninterrupted recording of data, even in failures of power supply or wireless link, due to its 2-year autonomy backup battery. LogBox Wi-Fi can be used to comply with security requirements of FDA Regulation Title 21 CFR Part 11.

Designed for the modernization and digitalization of the electric power industry, the 13th Latin-American Smart Grid Forum has NOVUS as a sponsor and exhibitor. The event, held on November 29th and 30th, gathered authorities, executives, managers, and engineers from electric power utilities and distributors from countries such as Brazil, Chile, and Colombia.
Aderbal Lima, founding partner, CEO of NOVUS for 38 years and current board member of the company, participated in a business mission to Dubai in the second half of November. Lima attended the event as a representative and president of the Foreign Trade Council of FIERGS (Federation of Industries of the State of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil). The activities at Expo Dubai serve to create networking between entrepreneurs and investors. In addition, it was also possible to visit startups and the information technology industrial center.
With the NXperience Mobile application, the information registered in your LogBox WiFi or BLE will be in the palm of your hand, on your smartphone.
LogBox Wi-Fi has MQTT protocol to publish data to IoT brokers or cloud, as well as ModBusTCP protocol to operate as a slave of SCADA or host of automation systems.
The Covid-19 pandemic has put all eyes on the planet on science advances and the developing of a vaccine. However, the road to a massive application is quite long. It is necessary to define priority groups, guarantee the stock of supplies,offer training to professionals and, of course, ensure that the distribution and storage of each dose is done at the right temperature.
It is very difficult to find processes that are not being monitored electronically nowadays. Whether to avoid human error, to meet regulatory requirements or even to reduce costs, the vast majority of companies have already dropped outdated clipboard notes and adopted data logging and monitoring equipment. In order to help choosing the most appropriate device to each process, this article discuss the characteristics of different electronic equipment for monitoring.
Cloud computing technologies are already a consolidated reality in the market. However, many people still keep prejudice in order to embrace this technology in business world, despite using it in a daily basis in their private life. The purpose of this article is to elucidate facts and myths about this technology and to facilitate the decision whether or not to deploy cloud oversight systems in your company.
Data importance has increased drastically recently which is very understandable once most decisions are data-driven. NOVUS’ LogBox Connect provides wireless connectivity to field signals and devices while offering ease of integration with Cloud systems and alarming capability. In this article, we will show you how LogBox can be used to monitoring three remote water pump stations from both the office and from maintenance engineers' mobile phone.
Attending DistribuTECH, an event focused on the energetic market, Fábio Pfeiffer says that the use of new technologies is already a reality but there is still a lot to do in this conservative segment.
The Modbus TCP protocol has been used for years in automation applications. However, with the advent of concepts such as Industry 4.0, IoT and geographically distributed wireless devices, new necessities - that make difficult to use Modbus TCP and its Client-Server model – have arrived. To help solving data communication in applications where the Client-Server model does not, this article presents the Publish-Subscribe model used in MQTT, a protocol widely used in IoT solutions.
