MultiTech LoRaWAN IoT for agriculture

Posted by stromium – December 14, 2016

MultiTech is an IoT company that has on display here their solutions for smart agriculture. The setup uses LoRaWAN for data transmissions (frequencies range from 700MHz in China to 915MHz in Europe) with a conduit that contains the gateway. The conduit can be IP67 water and dust proof certified in order to be installed on a rooftop. The 15km range is valid for line-of-sight only. Battery life can vary depending on the amount of data transmitted, with a one-day transmission device lasting for as long as 15 years.The demo setup consists of a sensor submerged in the ground to detect water, with data transmitted to the conduit/gateway.
