Metasphere launches first-ever IoT intrinsically safe datalogger/RTU

Metasphere is delighted to announce the launch of Point Blue IoT: the FIRST-ever ATEX/ IECEx (Zone 0, Gas Group IIB), 4G NB-IoT, Cat-M1 battery-powered datalogger/ RTU suitable for use in Intrinsically Safe environments. 

Point Blue IoT is the latest addition to the Point Colour family of RTUs, following in the footsteps of Point Orange IoT, released in 2019. 

Point Blue IoT includes support for two LPWAN technologies, NB-IoT and LTE-M, and can be connected to these networks across the globe.

Metasphere’s innovative device provides flexibility and simplicity with remote, configurable solutions. NB-IoT and LTE-M, developed to enable a wide range of new IoT devices and services, offers significant improvements in power consumption of user devices, system capacity and spectrum efficiency. 

This benefit translates into huge potential for water, wastewater and gas utilities, allowing for deployment at multiple sites delivering efficient IoT connectivity on their networks for sewer level, velocity and flow monitoring, wastewater quality as well as gas applications such as District Governor and Gas Distribution Network Pressure monitoring. 

Tim O’Brien, CEO of Metasphere commented, ’’Our latest product offering has been developed in line with Metasphere’s core vision of using telemetry to drive sustainable use of the world’s natural resources. Point Blue IoT offers our customers a plug and play solution that monitors water, wastewater, and gas assets in an intrinsically safe environment; whilst contributing to sustainably manage these assets for a better future.’’
