New Knowledge Center

The new Knowledge Base is here. This new website tool, allows any user to access in a simple and intuitive way to all the MTX software manuals indexed contents:

  • MTX-Titan: firmware built-in in all the MTX-Router-Titan family devices.
  • MTX-Tunnel: optional firmware compatible will all MTX modems, turning them into powerful 4G/3G/2G gateways (coming soon).

The MTX website Knowledge Base is a functionality that will grow as more contents are added. Right now it has all the contents of the manuals of the Titan and Tunnel, and soon it will feature all the application notes. Its biggest perk are the internal links within the content, that allow to easily navigate the different sections. In addition, there’s a table of contents on the right column, so the user can go to a different section without the need to go back. This tool is specifically made to help users with questions about MTX software, so they can easily find answers.

You can access to the Knowledge Base from the main menu “SUPPORT.” You can also have a look on the following link.

MTX-Cervello at CEBIT 2018

From June 12th to 15th, MTX and Cervello will be at the new edition of CEBIT in Hannover. This fair has been celebrated in the German city since 1970, and is already established as the number one platform of digital technology and information.

This year, it will feature names as known in the technology area as Julia Shaw (AI specialist), Mikko Hypponen (security guru) and Jaron Lanier (VR pioneer). MTX will also offer its contribution to the Internet of Things world presenting examples of different solutions with MTX devices and Cervello cloud platform. Both combined, form a powerful and innovative alternative for most IoT applications.

Don’t miss this networking opportunity and come to visit us in hall 13, stand B78, where you will also find a simulation of a smark parking solution and a temperature and humidity sensor solution.

COB ámbar Landmark, la solución para iluminación sostenible

Recientemente, varias comunidades autónomas españolas han empezado a tomar conciencia sobre la problemática de la contaminación lumínica sobre todo en sus ciudades, y están en camino de implementar unas normativas que  persiguen una iluminación sostenible que sea más respetuosa con el medio ambiente y por lo tanto mejore la calidad de vida de los ciudadanos.

Estas normativas, indican que los proyectos de iluminación exterior a implementar en un futuro deben ser de luz ámbar con un índice espectral G mayor de un valor determinado dependiendo de la zona lumínica en la que se desee instalar el proyecto:

Zona lumínica Índice espectral G
E1, E2 y E3 insertas en E1 G > 2,0
E3 G > 1,5
E4 G > 1,0

Ante esta nueva circunstancia, Matrix cuenta con la solución de iluminación adecuada a la nueva normativa, el COB Landmark de Bridgelux, que es el único del mercado que cumple con todos los requisitos. Estos COB LEDs cuentan con diferentes formatos, desde Vero, Vero SE y V. Se han medido en condiciones de 25ºC y 85ºC, con un resultado de 2,6, lo que significa que se cumple con el índice espectral requerido en cualquiera de las zonas lumínicas. Esta solución es perfecta para preservar y acentuar la belleza de edificios históricos, minimizar el reflejo, y mejorar la seguridad callejera.

El COB Landmark se convierte así en la mejor alternativa de iluminación para los fabricantes de luminarias de exterior que quieran competir en el mercado de iluminación sostenible del futuro, adaptado a las necesidades de los ciudadanos y del medio ambiente.

A continuación podéis ver los diferentes modelos del COB Landmark. Para más información, consultad la página de LEDs multichip especiales, o contactad con nuestro equipo de ventas.

Vertical Solutions Proposal by Flexitron

Flexitron presents a new publication where we analyze some of the most relevant vertical solutions for the Smart City of the future, based on the different options that exist in terms of sensors, hardware and software in Matrix Electrónica and other companies of the Flexitron Group.

With the increasing global urbanization, there is increasing effects on the environment, and a need for a new paradigm of urban management, more efficient and economically viable. The document aims to offer sustainable alternatives that improve the quality of life of citizens, focusing on key urban sectors like transportation, parking, power resources, waste management, lighting, air quality control, etc.

The publication develops different management examples for several solutions, analyzing the hardware and software equipment needed to make these connectivity projects happen. It also explores the pros and cons of these applications, and the effects they would have on the daily lives of the citizens of the Smart City. Thanks to the different companies that comprise Flexitron Group, Matrix is able to cover all the needs for the different vertical solutions: from sensors, to an IoT platform, to communication devices and accessories.

MTX-Tunnel whitepaper

Recently, our IoT trends MTX seminar took place. The event was so successful we had to expand it to two day in order to accomodate all the attendants, so it will be replicated on April 17th in Madrid. You can register on the event’s site.

As well as analysing the current IoT trends, MTX-Tunnel was introduced, a firmware that can be executed in MTX modems to turn them into powerful 2G or 3G gateways to give remote connectivity very simply to devices that only have an RS232 or RS485 serial port (such as counters, probes temperature or level …), to become complete fleet control devices or even to send to the cloud sensor monitoring (modbus registers, temperatures, digital signals, analog signals, pulse counters …).
