LoRAIN is designed to be easily connected to an existing LoRaWAN® network. For remote situations without the availability of a commercially operated LoRaWAN® network Pessl Instruments partners will support you with a farm based LoRaWAN® network which enables you to install all available LoRa® senzors – from Pessl Instruments or other vendors.


Intelligent power supply State of the art super capacitor charged with the solar panel
The very low power requirements of LoRaWAN® communication enables a battery-free power concept for LoRAIN. Avoid the hassle with forgetting to switch off the device or damaging the batteries due to deep discharge during storage. Bring it to the sun and it will start working. Bring it to the shade and after 6 days it will slowly stop for the time being in shade.
What is LoRa®? It is a spread spectrum modulation technique derived from chirp spread spectrum (CSS) technology and is the first low-cost implementation of chirp spread spectrum for commercial usage.

Measurement, logging and transmission intervals can be set differently to fit the client’s needs.

Measurement interval: occurrence, when the station measures the attached sensors
Logging interval: occurrence, when the station calculates the minimum, maximum and average values of all measurements which happened in this logging interval
Transmission interval: occurrence, when the station transmits the stored data from the logging interval to the FieldClimate.

Logging and transmission intervals for LoRaWAN communication-based products are the same.
