Advantech Wzzard LRPv Node and SmartSwarm 243 LoRa 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 among ‘things’ (ie, connected objects such as battery-powered sensors). As the Advantech Wzzard LRPv Node and SmartSwarm 243 LoRa Gateway support long-range WAN communication, there is no need to pay additional telecommunication costs.
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 the most sophisticated of monitoring plans. The 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.
The node has two modes: sleep mode (for when the node is idle) and operation mode (for data transmission). It comes with an embedded alarm system to notify users when a threshold has been exceeded so that action can be taken. The smart design of the operation modes and alarm system helps control the budget by saving the power it consumed and notifying users if any emergent actions are required.
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.
