Arduino Pro Gateway for LoRa
- Tech Specs
The Arduino Gateway for LoRa is currently avaiable only in Europe.
The Arduino gateway kit provides LoRa (Long Range) connectivity using ultra-long range and high interference immunity on the 868 MHz radio bands.
The gateway offers up to 8 LoRa Channels in the 868Mhz frequency allowing it to receive up to 8 LoRa packets simultaneously making it the ideal device to use in LoRaWAN gateways applications.
It is designed around the SX1301 from Semtech, which enables robust connection between the gateway and a massive amount of wireless end-points spread over a very wide range of distances.
It has the Listen Before Talk capability. When enabled, the device monitors channels continuously and transmits only if the channel is free.
It's the perfect companion of the Arduino MKR WAN 1300 .
Installation, provisioning and remote management the Gateway are made incredibly simple through the our Arduino Create platform.
This gateway enables people to leverage the LoRa connectivity in many use cases:
- Automated Meter Reading
- Environmental monitor
- Smart Cities
- Home and Building Automation
- Wireless Alarm and Security System
- Industrial Monitoring and Control
- Long Range Irrigation System
- Agricultural Monitoring
The gateway radio hardware is powered by Embit and Arduino hardware design team.
The network server and the packet forwarder running on the Arduino Create platform are powered by A2A
The Kit contains:
- LoRa gateway with SX1301 baseband chipset
- Adapter for Raspberry Pi
- Aluminium enclosure
- Raspberry Pi 3 model B+
- 5V Power supply
- Ethernet cable
- External antenna
