ConnectorIO needs one central computer system where the software’s engine is installed and collects the data, visualizes it and performs automation tasks
Hardware required to run ConnectorIO’s Software
A 2-4 core processor, with 2 threads. recommended: 64-Bit architecture processor with support of floating-point numbers (hard-float). A more efficient processor is required when the frequency of data readings needs to be more granular (eg. a reading every millisecond).
- RAM (operating memory)
Minimum 2GB, recommended 4GB.
Minimum 4 GB, recommended 8 GB type: eMMC or SSD used for data buffering tasks in case of network connection issues SD cards are not recommended due to data integrity problems during power failures and lower lifetime.
- Connectivity / Communication ports
Depends on the systems that need to be integrated. Serial ports: eg. RS-232 and/or RS-485. Ports’ voltage: to be specified. Wired connections: 2-3 cords/line (3 for ground).
- Network communication
Twisted-pair wiring - traditional Ethernet network cable. Number: depends on the number of devices to be controlled. More ethernet ports needed if more addresses, masks, and subnets are required.
- Wireless communication
The central unit (see picture) contains ports for antenna connectivity which allow for a wireless communication with remote devices.
The Central Unit supports the ConnectorIO system in two configurations:
- local, works on-premises
- through the cloud (the central unit is only a device concentrator and data server)
Communication with devices is carried out directly or through gates that provide appropriate data ports (input / output).
When connected to ConnectorIO, the system performs a scan and creates a digital twin of the device. It is a software layer (firewall) that protects the device against attacks and access to the hardware driver.
The system never refers directly to the equipment, but only to the copy - the so-called digital-twin.
Communication with devices is carried out either directly or through gates that provide appropriate data ports (input / output) for communication purposes.
We recommend wired connection due to reliable data flow. In case of devices scattered around the object, with which it is not possible to communicate by cable (even fiber optics), wireless communication can be provided.
Modern Internet of Things devices usually communicate wirelessly to their own cloud. ConnectorIO communicates with these devices by referring to this cloud and integrates the shared functions in its panel.

Try our Demo-Set
We have built a portable Demo-Set that allows you to test the capabilities of ConnectorIO's software.
Contact us and let's schedule a "live" demo in your premises to test the possibilities of monitoring devices.
- width - 80 cm
- height - 80 cm
- depth - 25 cm
- weight - ca. 25 kg
- 2 weeks
How it works? We come to the company and connect to one selected system - e.g. HVAC or electrical energy unit and start "passively" monitoring it (we do not control the device). After two weeks, based on the collected data, we generate a report indicating how and how much we can optimize your system thanks to the implementation of ConnectorIO.
It is worth noting that if fully implemented, the savings will be much more significant.
