Alps Electric Starts Provision of A New Iot System

Alps Electric has started provision of a new IoT system to help corporations quickly set up new businesses based on Internet of Things technology and launch new services utilizing gathered data. The IoT system employs IBM's Bluemix platform-as-a-service (PaaS) to enable seamless connection of IoT Smart Modules-multiple sensors combined with a communication module in a single package-to cloud services. Linking IoT Smart Modules to IBM Bluemix streamlines sensing of data through to cloud service deployment, making it easier for customers to develop new businesses utilizing collected information. IoT Smart Modules are modules that contain within a compact casing multiple sensors for detecting data on pressure, temperature, humidity, ambient light and other environmental parameters, along with wireless communication functions. There are two series: the 'Sensor Network Module,' a world-smallest size module that even performs six-axis (geomagnetic and acceleration) sensing, and the 'Environmental Sensor Module,' which can be installed outdoors due to its dust- and water-resistant design. The former supports Bluetooth(r) Smart while the latter is compatible with 920 MHz data communication. Both modules can be supplied as development kits with a gateway that links to IBM Bluemix, allowing a broad range of uses such as monitoring of living environments, health management and infrastructure monitoring. IoT sensor applications require solutions for connecting and controlling sensor devices, collecting and managing data output collected from sensors, and creating processing flows for IoT events among other functions. Bundling these solutions together with sensor modules makes it easier to utilize the sensing data. IBM Bluemix employs Node-RED and MQTT (Message Queue Telemetry Transport) open technologies that enable visual assembly of logic flows and defining of processing logic for applications, and which simplify use of IoT data by anyone. Providing a framework to which everyone can connect, IBM Bluemix is expected to grow as a platform easily and quickly accessible by IoT Smart Modules users. In addition, the benefits of cloud-based managed services and access to global IT infrastructure are considered vital for IoT business expansion. Alps Electric seeks to enhance its IoT system looking ahead to potential uses in the nursing care, person monitoring, industrial equipment, agriculture and wearable device fields and development of applications for individual industries. The Environmental Sensing Module and the Sensor Network Module were made available for general sale as development kits in June and October 2015 respectively. By linking these modules to the IBM Bluemix cloud platform, Alps Electric will support the establishment of IoT businesses in diverse markets.

Alps Electric Develops SKTK Series TACT Switch

Alps Electric has developed the 'SKTK Series' TACT Switch with IP67 dust and water resistance, ideal for home function switches on smartphones. Alps Electric applied mechanical design expertise accumulated over many years to realize a TACT Switch with external dimensions of 5.9 × 4.0mm and a height of 0.78mm for a low profile while at the same time achieving a 0.23mm travel, almost double the travel of existing switches of the same size. An excellent operating feel and a onemillioncycle long life on a par with game controllers have also been achieved and will help to improve the reliability of end products. To ensure sound reliability, a projection structure was adopted for the metal contact. This both prevents differences in feel caused by position variations during installation and enables stable operation of the switch even when it is pressed from the edge or diagonally. The projection structure used is an inner projection. This increases projection strength, thereby improving durability. Features: TACT Switch achieving low profile, long travel, long life and excellent feel. Travel of 0.23mm achieved despite the low profile; long operating life of 1 million cycles and projection structure facilitates handling during installation.
