LoRa and LoRaWAN solutions

Advantech has expanded its range of wireless products with the launch of the WISE-6610 LoRaWAN gateway and Wzzard LRPv2 LoRa WAN node.

Wzzard LRPv2 Node is an integrated LoRaWAN sensing platform for applications ranging from I/O sensor data management to network protocol conversion. The Wzzard LRPv2 Node can be utilised to form a private sensor network, yielding immediate dividends by cutting maintenance costs while increasing overall productivity. The WISE-6610 LoRaWAN Gateway connects to a user’s application server or SCADA for data access using the MQTT protocol.

The wireless telecommunication is designed for long-range, low-bit-rate communication among “things” (i.e., connected objects such as battery-powered sensors). Because the Advantech Wzzard LRPvw Node and WISE-6610 LoRaWAN Gateway support long-range WAN communication, there is no need to pay additional telecommunication costs, which can reduce costs considerably.

Advantech’s Wzzard LRPv2 Node can connect up to four sensors simultaneously and is ideal 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 the most sophisticated of monitoring plans.

Because the Wzzard LRPv2 Node offers high flexibility in both hardware and software aspects, it frees users from having to deploy an infrastructure-heavy wireless network, meaning that resources can be allocated to other more critical investments.
