The microkernel adopts hierarchical architecture which includes BootOS self-boot and the main task loading, which bring more flexibility for Polysense-predefined and 2nd development capabilities. With the open kernel support, the iEdge 4.0 based products bring the advantages 3rd party development to support their own transmission technologies or sensors so that to enjoy the value brings to them with rich array sensors ecosystems.


“Following the deployment of WxS8000 LoRa series, WxS6000 BT/BLE series, WxS7000 WiFi series, WxS9000 NB-IoT series and the Cat1/Cat4 series and the increasing portfolio quantity of supported chemical and physical sensors over the world, many customers express their interest to build their own sensor devices based on Polysense technologies to meet customers various real use cases and the services customers requested ”, said Alex Wu, the President and CEO of Polysense Technologies, “ by providing the iEdge 4.0 micro virtual kernel supported products, we restructure and relaunch the configurable and modular smart terminal series and can now pleased tell our partners over the world that -Yes, we can!”.

Polysense iEdge 4.0 products highlights:

  • 2-in-1 smart sensor(s) and RTU terminal product
  • Expandable with any mixture of Polysense chemical and physical PSS sensors
  • Up to 8 working simultaneously including sensors and controllers; Customization needed if more than 8 working at the same time
  • RTU controlling signal and interfaces OD/PWR triggered by sensor(s) data or OTA command for solenoid valve or other devices
  • OD output control interface for controlling external devices such as electric relay,AC contactor, beeper, draught fan, lamps and lantern etc.
  • PWR*2 output, one default for external devices/sensors power supply voltage output, one with 3.3V voltage; or customization usage,such as for PWM port
  • PWR port signal can be used as PWM output to control stepper moter or lamp
  • Sensor(s) data or OTA Command triggered OD/PWR controlling signal & interfaces
  • 2-in-1 DC(5V/12V)+Battery(3.6V Li-SOCl2 ER45615H/M) Power Supply, DC in priority

With the iEdge OS 4.0 support, Polysense (next generation smart IoT terminal) decouple any smart sensors into four logical components-transmission parts (WxS Series), interfaces mainboard (PSM), battery option (PSB) and sensors (PSS). Any scenario specific sensors are easily assembled and configured according to the specific customer requirements. Just 4 easy steps are needed to develop your own sensors (BYOD) by selecting Polysense pre-developed products or developing your own transmission technology or your own sensors and connecting to Polysense iEdge 4.0 based main board with Polysense provided API.

“Polysense Technologies fills the gap between the fixed IoT products and the feature rich use cases in current IoT ecosystems. It enables and empowers the onsite capability to provide combo sensor mixture to meet various and changing requirements,” said Amy Zheng, the President of LiteSystems Technologies, “the iEdge 4.0 based configurable and modular products provide unlimited mixture of sensors, meters, controllers and any expansion requirements. We are excited to work with Polysense to serve our customers with any sensing combinations capability in a timely manner in IoT industry.”

Except the capability to Build-Your-Own-Devices with simply 4 steps, the new open architecture supports any of the smart terminal components Polysense pre-built, which provide much more cost-effective sensor solutions for any large quantity opportunities, and provide the possibilities of selecting any transmission technologies appropriate to the customers, implementation site, and use cases.

“We are experiencing many difficult times to meet customer’s requirements to find proper IoT products to meet customer requirements, which including many totally different use cases, different transmission technologies, different sensor mixtures, and tight time slot to provide the solutions. Now we are equipped with the ability to meet these customer’s requirements and have perfect confidence to work with Polysense to expand into new IoT area.” Said Andrej Prebanda from Coin Ltd.
