DMC created and designed a wireless, battery-powered device using Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) technology to measure, log, and transmit environmental data. This product communicates with a LoRa Gateway running custom firmware also written by DMC. The LoRa Gateway then communicates with an IoT provider called the Things Network and ultimately up to DicksonOne, a customer interfacing website where Dickson’s customers can view all their loggers and all of the data received from them in real time.
Radio Frequency LoRa Gateway
DMC designed a custom circuit board from the ground up to be compatible with existing Dickson devices. These devices include replaceable sensor pods that measure different metrics such as humidity and temperature. The batteries in the sensors last up to a year, or more depending on how often they are transmitting. These RF devices are designed to communicate over long distances at low data rates and low power.
