periNODE GPIO smart adapter

This periNODE smart adapter has 2 input/output channels and is connected directly to sensors or actuators with 24V GPIO via a 4*0.25 mm² cable.

The analog, passive sensor or actuator becomes an intelligent, active network participant that communicates with any IT system or data hub via Ethernet.

periNODE allows data communication intervals to be configured to meet user-specific requirements, reducing network traffic and redundant data collection.


Scope of Application

periNODE GPIO enables a wide range of IoT and IIoT use cases whenever sensors feature a 24V GPIO Interface.

Supported Devices

works a.o. with all types of switching contacts or proximity switches

Key Features

  • IPv6 TCP/UDP connectivity
  • HTTP server with web GUI with sensor values and configuration page
  • RESTful API for access to sensor values and configuration
  • Sensor values via MQTT
  • Zeroconf networking
