A DAQ company with a difference...

MasTec has distributed ACCESIO Inc for several years now.
This is not traditional DAQ or Comms company that is why
we distribute their products. This company covers many areas that most DAQ companies do not go to.

ACCESIO do make Traditional Products, even Legacy
Products but they are right on the edges of all new
technologies in this DAQ (ADC, DAC, DIO, Counters)
and Comms (RS-232, 422, 485, Ethernet, Wireless) arena
and have an extensive product range with many bus types.

+ DAQ and Comms for embedding or uses in rugged
industrial or even military grade systems.

Their product range is very broad, so please ask for help
in selecting the correct unit if you get overwhelmed.

They are highly reliable products, most industrial grade,
many Military grade.

 Do you need industrial or military grade USB hubs, locking power cables, locking USB Cables, operate
over extended temperature, isolation etc?

Do you want the smallest form factor (also lowest weight) comms or digital IO, use mPCI-e?

Do you need local high channel count USB DAQ (ADC, DAC, DIO, Counter) in a closed metal chassis
box for rugged builds?

Do you need Remote high channel count RS-485
DAQ (ADC, DAC, DIO, Counters) in an Industrial grade Chassis?

If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions -
ACCESIO is the company for you!

Below is their extensive product line:
ADC - Analog input
DAC - Analog output
Digital IO
Digital IO - High Current
Serial communication - RS-232, 422, 485
Isolated I/O boards
Signal Conditioning
SSRs and Contact Relays
Wireless DAQ and IO Systems
USB Expansion Ports
USB Isolated Comms
Distributed IO
Enclosures & Termination & Prototyping
Ethernet IO
ETX Embedded Systems
Legacy ISA DAQ and Digitsl IO and Comms
Legacy PC Card and PCMCIA IO
Watchdog Systems

 Plus Technology types, bus types and form factors
ETX Nano 104 Embedded
Distributed and wireless I/O,
Computer-on-module (COM) form factors

 NB-IOT(DTU) F2910

NB-IoT ultra low power consumption design
NB-IoT Low communication cost
NB-IoT wide indoor coverage area capability
Support Low latency sensitivity and cost-effective for products design

Low Power Consumption
NB-IoT technology focus on the small data and small transmit speed application.So NB-IoT device power consumption can be very small, the device life can be significantly increased from few months to several years.

NB-IoT need not to re-build the network, radio and antenna are basically multiplexed.For example, like one of China network operators-China Mobile, there is a wider band in 900MHZ owned by China Mobile.Only need to allocate part of the 2G band, you can directly deploy LTE and NB-IoT at the same time. Low speed, low power consumption and narrow bandwidth also bring the advantage of low cost to NB-IoT chip and module.

Wide Coverage Area
NB-IoT has the better indoor coverage capability than LTE.NB-IoT has enhancements of 20dB gain more than LTE, it is equivalent to an increase of 100 times coverage area capacity more than LTE.

Numerous and Powerful Nodes Connection
In the case of the same base station, NB-IoT can provide 50-100 times access nodes more than existing wireless technologies.One sector can support 100,000 connections with low latency sensitivity, ultra-low device cost, low device power consumption and optimized network architecture.
