Long Range End Node Sensors

LoRa, short for long range WAN, specifies a low-power wireless standard and internet infrastructure created by the Internet of Things (IoT) industry. The LoRa gateways can handle millions of nodes, allowing several applications to run on the same network with less infrastructure than Wi-Fi. LoRa modules can be placed at free will to provide private coverage or can be logged into the network of a long range WAN service provider to interconnect devices.

LoRa Modules Provide Long Range, Bi-Directional Communication

Our LoRa module sensor transmits data to a wireless LoRa gateway that is connected to the internet and propagates data to the network through 868 MHz (Europe) or 915 MHz (USA) wireless bands. The data is eventually received by a LoRa application that decides whether and which data to respond to the long-range end node.

LoRa gateways from elobau provide bi-directional communication with end-to-end encryption to protect data and privacy. These low-power wireless modules have a range of 3 km (1.86 miles) indoors or in urban areas and 15 km (9.32 miles) outdoors or in rural areas. An option of battery power or Lilon/solar panel operation accommodates different operating needs.

The elobau long range end node provides four M12 connectors which can be used to connect different sensors to the LoRa end node. All four connector sensors can be mixed and matched to accommodate both analog and digital signals. The LoRa module also supports sensors with serial interface (I2C, UART, SDI-12).

Long Range WAN Technology for the Internet of Things Industry

LoRa modules interconnect devices for commercial and industrial applications and are integral for the creation of smart cities. Our multipurpose long-range end nodes feature GPS, GNSS, and Galileo modules for accurate positioning and are a scalable solution for Internet of Things applications such as:
  • Smart Farming: Monitoring soil temperature, humidity, and salinity for large-scale farming.  LoRa gateways also feature GPS for tracking and monitoring for cattle and livestock.
  • Waste Management: Detecting fill levels in tanks, disposal containers, and other waste receptacles. Monitoring levels prevents overfilling and allows waste removal companies to provide more demand-oriented emptying services.
  • Parking Space Management: Sharing the status of parking stalls to people can use Apps to find and reserve open spots in surface lots and parking ramps.
  • Generator Fuel Level Sensors: Monitoring generator fuel level sensors to measure diesel fuel temperatures and tank levels.  
  • HVAC Sensor Solutions: Manage communications between multiple HVAC sensors to monitor and manage temperature, pressure, and fluid levels.
