NPE introduced WASP-B (ANT-to-WiFi) nearly 3 years ago at the ANT+ Symposium. Since then the next generation product, WASP-N, has been developed that offers more features and functionality at about 25% lower price than WASP-B. Key features include:

  • Simultaneous management of various sensors protocols to include all of the ANT protocols (ANT/ANT+/ANT-FS) and the Bluetooth® Smart protocol.
  • 802.11 b/g/n WiFi
  • On board memory
  • WASP OEM ANT network key protection
  • Bi-directional sensor communication and control
  • Currently certified for use in North America, Europe, Japan and NZ/AU.

WASP-N is the perfect technology product to support end-market solutions in the sports, fitness and wellness markets. WASP-N is also an enabling technology for other market solutions utilizing ANT and BLE sensors, such as in smart facilities, asset tracking and health care applications.

WASP-POE-2 and WASP-POE-3 {POE = Power over Ethernet}

NPE introduced WASP-POE-1 (ANT-to-Ethernet) 2 years ago. Since then we have incorporated 2 and 3 radio versions of the product that provides similar to enhanced functionality of WASP-N without the nuances of WiFi. These products are currently certified for use in North America, Europe and by July-2015 in NZ/AU. As with the WASP-N, this product has more features and functionality at about 25% lower price than the current WASP-POE-1.
