LoRa WAN SYSTEMS
LoRa is a LPWAN (Low Power Wide Area Network) radio technology that enables long range transmission for objects with modest power consumption. LoRa acts in the free sub-giga Hertz band, mainly 868 MHz (Europe) and 915 MHz (North and South America) and allows transmission in the order of 10+ kilometers. The structure of the network provide the existence of at least a LoRa gateway covering a wide area, able to manage thousands end points (meters, waste bins street lighters, parking sensors,…), collecting data from them and uploading to the Cloud. Over the LoRa physical layer enabling the long-range communication, an upper layer was developed to manage the connection between gateways and end nodes. This is the LoRaWAN standard and it’s elected as interoperability pre-requisites for an end point as for the gateways to be able to operate together even if produced by different manufacturers, that’s the starting point for an integrated IoT network including several type of devices.
Wireless M-BUS SYSTEMS
The remote reading systems allow the collection of the data recorded by the meter thus eliminating any manual operation. All the above allows: » Time saving in the reading procedure » Attempted fraud detection and water leak detection » Error free data reading » More Privacy » Data are directly stored into a PC thus eliminating any transcription operation Our products use the M-BUS wireless transmission protocol EN13757-4 (OMS) allowing communication with any other reading systems (electric power, gas) using the same protocol, and to use accessories manufactured by third party Companies. The system represents an easy solution and allows starting with a simple pre-equipped device and later upgrade it with the addition of a communication module.
