Electronics (Europe) Ltd., a division of SMK
Corporation (Japan) announced today that SMK will manufacture,
market and support the IP500 RF Dual-Band Module (CNX200) with highest
security and performance of the IP500 Mesh Network for use in commercial
building automation applications. Deployed in mission-critical facility
applications, the IP500 module (CNX200) furthers the global IP500
Alliance standard for safety and security systems.
“SMK Electronics is actively expanding its role in facility automation,
building security and HEMS applications,” said Paul Evans, President,
SMK Electronics Corporation. “Through our partnership with CoreNetiX
GmbH, SMK will globally manufacture the RF IP500 Module (CNX200),
enabling high-speed data transfer for critical facility systems, and
furthering the IP500 Alliance standard for commercial automation
“We are delighted with our selection of SMK Electronics to manufacture
and globally market the worldwide most robust IP500 Dual Band RF
Module,” said Helmut Adamski, Chief Executive Officer, IP500 Alliance.
“Commercial facility automation is a rapidly-expanding global
opportunity, driven in large part by the emergence of the IP500 Alliance
standard. Through the partnership between SMK and CoreNetiX, the IP500
Alliance has enhanced the IP500 Standard, expanded the manufacturing
capabilities for highest volumes, and extended our marketing reach for
IP500 activities: all required to service this emerging global IoT
The IP500 Module & and the IP500 Alliance
IP500 is a wireless mesh network standard endorsed by the IP500
Alliance, achieving low-power consumption, high speed transfer, and high
security with a new communication standard called LPWA (Low Power Wide
Area) which is becoming popular with IoT business expansion. The
appropriate market of IP500 would be security such as fire and intrusion
detection, and would be suitable for smart city, smart grid, wearable
device, smart factory and home. As it has achieved confirmation with the
EN regulations for fire-safety standard within Europe, it is expected to
be used in Building Security, HEMS, or any other fields requiring high
The IP500 Alliance is an international organization of building
automation manufacturers. The organization’s IP500 standard, a
non-proprietary, high-performance, secure building automation platform,
supports commercial wireless protocols including IEEE 802.15.4-2006,
6LoWPAN, IPv6, IPSec, BACnet, and AES128, IP500®, to ensure maximum
interoperability and specification of client wireless interface
protocols. Learn more at www.IP500.org.
