Advantech Wzzard LRPv LoRa node and SmartSwarm 243 gateway
Advantech in partnership with Semtech has expanded its line of wireless products with the launch of the Wzzard LRPv Node and SmartSwarm 243 LoRa Gateway.
LoRa is a proprietary chirp spread spectrum radio modulation technology for low-power WAN (LPWAN, also referred to as a low-power network) applications. An LPWAN is a type of wireless telecommunication WAN that is designed for long-range, low-bit-rate communication for the IoT.
Advantech’s Wzzard LRPv Node can connect up to four sensors simultaneously. It is suitable for production lines that have many sensors or for applications where there is limited space for additional devices. The software is specifically designed to be customisable so as to accommodate more sophisticated monitoring plans. The Wzzard LRPv Node offers high flexibility in both hardware and software aspects, therefore it frees users from having to deploy an infrastructure-heavy wireless network, meaning that resources can be allocated to other more critical investments.
Two modes are supported: sleep mode (for when the node is idle) and operation mode (for data transmission). An embedded alarm system notifies users when a threshold has been exceeded so that action can be taken.
With an IP66 rating, both devices are protected against ingress from dust and powerful water jets. Furthermore, their dual-power design (BC/battery for the Wzzard LRPv Node and solar/battery for the SmartSwarm 243 Gateway) provides multiple deployment options.
