Ethernet or GPRS collector: the gateway between the radio loggers and a database on your network

The Newsteo Collector allows remote collection, through Ethernet (IP) or GPRS (GSM network), of data coming from several Newsteo loggers, and storage on a remote secured server.

The Newsteo Collector exists in several versions, for indoor or outdoor uses, with a main power supply or solar panels supply.

How does it work?

COL ethernet GPRS
  • The Logger equipped with a sensor takes the measure and transmits it by radio to the Collector,
  • The collector transmits the measurements through Ethernet or GPRS to a central database,
  • A real-time alert can be sent anywhere to the supervisor,
  • The supervisor can access at any time to the measures, via Internet

Displaying of the measures from the database

  • The web application WebMonitor:


    – Thin Client solution, simply connect to the website www.newsteo-webmonitor.com

Data Base hosting

The data base is a MySQL standard. It can be hosted on a Newsteo’ server or by the client himself.

Data transmission

The Newsteo Collector communicates with the remote Newsteo Webserver in ‘point-to-point’ mode, which limits the risk on the network itself. Newsteo has implemented the SSL protocol (port 443) to securize the data between the collector and the server.

The Newsteo Collector product runs on a private operating system and does not use Linux or any other public OS. So, apart from the limited capabilities to communicate with Newsteo remote server, the Collector does not contain any other generic network functions that would permit to enter Customer’s internal network through the Collector.
