Features, Advantages, and Benefits
LoRa Wireless Network Technology
The LoRa platforms provide wireless long-range network communication functionality without the need to pay telecommunication fees, which can have a marked impact on reducing network operating costs. Furthermore, traditional wireless solutions (e.g., access points) have a limited data transmission range and thus force users to adopt an intensive approach to node deployment. Even though cellular routers are unaffected by such problems, they still require the user to pay telecommunication fees.
3AI/1DI for Multiple Sensors and Customized SoftwareThe LoRa Private Node can connect up to four sensors simultaneously, making it especially ideal for production lines that have many sensors or for applications where there is limited space for additional devices. Furthermore, the software for Advantech’s LoRa products can be customized to accommodate the most sophisticated of monitoring plans. Because the Wzzard LoRa Private Node offers a high level of flexibility in both hardware and software aspects, it frees users from having to deploy an infrastructure-heavy wireless network, meaning that resources can be allocated to other more critical investments.
IP66 Enclosure and Battery/Solar Design for Remote Outdoor Sites
With an IP66 rating, the Wzzard LRPv Node and SmartSwarm 243 Gateway are protected against ingress by and contact with dust as well as powerful water jets. The dual-power design of these devices (DC/battery for the Wzzard LRPv Node and solar/battery for the SmartSwarm 243 Gateway) also gives users multiple deployment options.
Dual Power-Saving Modes and an Alarm SystemThe LoRa Private Node has two power-saving modes: sleep mode (for when the node is not in use) and operation mode (for scheduled data transmissions). For instance, if a node were scheduled to report sensor data twice per hour, then sleep mode would automatically activate when the node is not in use, and operation mode would wake the node when the data must be transmitted, thus maximizing the energy efficiency of the device. An alarm system is also installed to notify users when a particular value has exceeded a given threshold.
