Plug 'n' play mikroBUS-compatible FT Click helps IIoT developers harness the ultimate wired communication tech.

Looking for the most reliable and easiest-to-scale communications media for your next industrial IoT project? Use FT Click to instantly prototype your connected devices through open protocols. Based on the powerful Renesas FT 6050 smart transceiver, FT Click provides three ways to communicate: BACnet, LON and MQTT. These protocols run on top of the uniquely robust FT twisted pair media.

Need some ideas to get started? We've built sample applications using hugely popular Node-RED and freely available open APIs to eliminate any learning curve. Our communication software stacks are open source and available for a wide variety of development environments.
