LPWAN DATA LOGGER FOR REMOTE AREAS.
iMETOS® LoRa is a new generation of the iMETOS® weather stations, which uses LoRaWAN connectivity for data transmission. iMETOS® LoRa can be connected to any existing LoRa network, if present at your location. For specific projects (mainly PoC*) we can also provide LoRa gateways, to establish your own LoRa network.
iMETOS® LoRa can handle various sensors. Data is permanently measured in 5-minute intervals and sent every 15 minutes to the server. All the data is synchronized with FieldClimate.
iMETOS® LoRa weather station is (in LoRa terminology) an End node device, which communicates with the LoRa gateway. LoRa gateway needs to communicate (forward) the data to the LoRa network server, LoRa network server pushes the data to LoRa app and LoRa app pushes the data to our FieldClimate platform.
Sounds difficult? Not really. The user just needs to make sure, the iMETOS® LoRa device is provisioned on the LoRa server and that the LoRa network provider pushes the data to PI FieldClimate platform, other things are, in most cases, plug-and-play.
We provide the iMETOS® LoRa weather stations and users normally already have a LoRa network available on site.
*PoC projects: We can make sure everything is up and running and that the data from sensors is received and displayed to the client on the FieldClimate platform. After PoC is done, we do not offer maintenance of the LoRa gateways and connectivity.
