Arduino Pro Gateway for LoRa
Monitor your factory, vehicle fleet, or agricultural site with the LoRa® PRO Gateway.
- Tech Specs
Arduino Pro is a one-stop-shop for all of your LoRa® and LoRaWAN™ needs. Whether inside a large industrial space, at an outdoor agricultural site, or monitoring a fleet of vehicles in a city, the LoRa® PRO Gateway is the easiest way to collect data from and send control commands to your devices.
The LoRa® protocol is the tool of choice when building simple, inexpensive, and easy to maintain wireless infrastructures. Use this kit to deploy your solutions quickly using an existing wired network to ensure a fast connection between your devices and the Arduino IoT Cloud.
Thanks to its high interference immunity and on-chip end-to-end encryption, LoRa® is the most suitable solution in deployments ranging from tens to thousands of devices. At low level, data is multiplexed through 8 channels using the so-called Listen Before Talk feature that ensures a neglectable collision rate between data packages.
Design and service industrial wireless solutions, connect devices to the Arduino IoT Cloud via the LoRaWAN™ low-power / long-range standard
- CONNECT 1000S OF DEVICES: Optimized for Arduino MKR WAN 1310, our battery-powered LoRa® mote.
- EASY SOFTWARE CONFIGURATION: Configure your gateways in minutes with Arduino's IoT Cloud wizard.
- RUNS ON SEMTECH’S CHIPSET: Powered by technology from the creators of the LoRa protocol.
- SPECTRAL SCAN THROUGH FPGA: Improved channel tuning via exhaustive analysis of the radio spectrum.
Leverage Arduino’s LoRa® infrastructure in multiple cases:
- Automated remote readers
- Environmental monitoring
- Smart cities
- Preemptive maintenance
- M2M infrastructure
- Fleet management
- Domestic automation
- Security systems and alarms
- Outdoor agricultural devices
- Industrial control
Every PRO Gateway Includes Hardware and Software
The Arduino LoRa® PRO Gateway is the result of a collaboration between Arduino and partner companies specialized in different aspects of the technology at hand: radio-specialized processors, high frequency circuit design, and protocols for the management of large amounts of devices in WAN area networks. More than a kit, the PRO Gateway, together with it’s software and cloud management tools, is a platform for quick deployment of solutions.
The components in the kit include:
- LoRa® SX1301 baseband chipset
- Adapter for embedded computer
- Fully equipped aluminum enclosure
- Oneboard computer (RPi 3 or better)
- External power supply (5V)
- Ethernet cable
- External antenna
Check the Arduino Forum for questions about the Arduino Language, or how to make your own Projects with Arduino. Need any help with your PRO Gateway please get in touch with the official Arduino User Support as explained in our Contact Us page.
You can find here your board warranty information.
The Arduino LoRa® PRO Gateway is based on Semtech's baseband and radio chips, connected over miniPCI to an embedded one-board computer. Version 1 of the PRO Gateway runs on the RPi 3 B+.

Who is the partner Arduino worked with for the creation of the PRO Gateway's hardware?
The gateway radio hardware is powered by Embit and Arduino hardware design company based in Italy.
Who is the partner Arduino worked with for the PRO Gateway's data channeling to the Arduino IoT Cloud?
The network server and the packet forwarder running on the Arduino Create platform are powered by A2A, also based in Italy.
Which LoRa® or LoRaWAN™ enabled devices can connect through the PRO Gateway?
In principle, the PRO Gateway has been documented to handle connections from the Arduino MKR WAN 1310 and MKR WAN 1300. If you needed other devices to operate in your solution, contact Arduino's engineers for details.
Is it possible to modify the PRO Gateway's software to accommodate specific settings in my deployment?
In order to provide the best experience, the PRO Gateway works only with A2A's packet forwarder and network server. However, the embedded computer runs on a free and open operating system, and you are welcome to hack this product in whatever form you need. We will be happy to consult you (for a fee) if you need an advanced configuration of the PRO Gateway.
In the technical specifications, it is mentioned that this works for 868 MHz which is the frequency range for the EU, will this product be available for the US?
We are working on this, please subscribe to the news on this product at the top of the page and we will let you know when the PRO Gateway will be launched in the US.
