The Senquip data sensor was introduced at a presentation at the Internet of Things Conference in November 2019 by Norman Ballard, its developer and manufacturer.

Adopters of Internet of Things technologies in Australia often have to make compromises when selecting commercial-off-the-shelf technologies to meet their needs.  Australia has environmental, geographic and commercial realities that are different from those in Europe, the USA and Asia.  These differences create opportunities for innovators to find niche opportunities to manufacture IoT devices that are optimised for use in Australia.  Norman Ballard’s presentation provided a step-by-step guide for engineers in all industries on how to develop their own IoT device, covering business requirements, design for manufacture and building the case for manufacturing in Australia. A number of case studies were presented including the Senquip ORB-X1, a general-purpose IoT sensor gateway developed in Australia.

About the presenter: Norman Ballard is the General manager of Engineering at BZG, a systems integrator focusing on marine systems, and CEO of Senquip, a manufacturer of IoT gateways for connecting sensors. Norman has extensive experience in electronics design. He founded Hummingbird Electronics in 1997 after emigrating from South Africa. Prior to this, he was a Project Engineer at General Electric, Director of the Semiconductor Division within Avnet and Market Development Manager for semiconductor products in Southern Africa for Motorola.
