ProtoConnect

Full-featured, cloud-connected, field-programmable, IIoT gateway that mounts outside the OEM's enclosure allows OEM to bid on any project specifying any protocol

ProtoConnect

ProtoConnect is a complete, turnkey project that involves designing and supplying a hardware/software solution for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and that leverages Sierra Monitor’s resources and ProtoCessor designs.

As a semi-custom module solution specifically designed for an OEM’s application requirements, Sierra Monitor’s ProtoConnect brings together the extensive driver library, coupled with proven experience in protocol translation gateways to provide the OEM customer confidence that their products will meet the foreign network’s requirements for interoperability.

ProtoConnect development involves analog and digital design, schematics, and PCB design. The ProtoConnect greatly reduces the OEM’s cost of development through work that Sierra Monitor provides. With our expertise, Sierra Monitor ensures the shortest time to market and the lowest cost per unit solution. In addition, we will continuously maintain the protocols at charge to the OEM.
