Lufft I-BOX Serial - Gateway for Measuring Technology

The Lufft I-BOX Serial is the door opener for almost every interface – thanks to app-technology!

The Lufft I-BOX Serial is your gateway for almost every measurement task – thanks to flexible app-technology! You select an app for data input, for data handling and for data output. For example, a particular Data Entry app will query 10 OPUS20 devices, the Data Processing App can generate an alarm, and the Data Output App will send the data to a database.

We designed the gateway to meet different integration requirements and to facilitate your measurement tasks. Software-sided limits can be bypassed. The way is clear for seemingly limitless environmental measuring technology!

Does the sensor fit your requirements? Find out right now in our support forum. The base sensor Lufft I-Box Serial Mini has five pre-installed apps (OPUS20, OPUS Finder, Lufft WS, JSON, E-Mail Alert)  and can be supplemented with one further app. If you want to install more apps, you need the upgrade package on top of the base package. A sensor can also be upgraded to the more comprehensive version at a later date. For more details please see the tab "product variants".
