The Sentrius RG1xx Gateway and RS1xx Sensor IoT Starter Kit is offered as ideal for many of the most challenging industrial settings and applications, including cold chain management and food safety, industrial heating and cooling, agricultural humidity and environmental monitoring, and industrial automation/monitoring and control. The RG1xx and RS1xx IoT Starter Kit bundles the company’s LoRaWAN-enabled RG1xx Gateway with its new RS1xx Multi-sensor, offering integrated temperature and humidity data alongside external open/closed sensing.
The RG1xx IoT Gateway is offered as an ideal platform for long-range, low-power IoT applications. The gateway leverages the company’s WB50NBT wireless bridge certified module and offers enterprise dual-band Wi-Fi and Ethernet. With a LoRaWAN range of up to 10 miles and pre-loaded with various LoRa packed forwarder software, the RG1xx is offered as ideal for highly scalable and flexible IoT networks.
The RS1xx IoT Sensor leverages the benefits of LoRaWAN and Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) connectivity in one small, rugged form factor. It can reliably send temperature/RH and open/closed sensor data in harsh RF environments and over long distances to remote LoRaWAN gateways. With the added benefit of LE connectivity, sensor data can be sent to smartphones and tablets for local configuration, control, or data visualization.
The RG1xx and RS1xx IoT Starter Kit is fully compatible with multiple cloud services, including the new AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN. This fully managed feature of AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN enables enterprises to connect wireless devices that use low-power, long-range wide area network (LoRaWAN) technology without developing or operating a LoRa Network Server (LNS) themselves. Both the RG1xx Gateway and the IoT Starter Kit will be qualified for AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN and featured in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Device Catalog.
“AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN offers a plug-and-play experience that reduces device on-boarding friction,” says Chris Boorman, senior product manager at Laird Connectivity. “We plan to offer full support for AWS IoT Core for LoRaWAN early next year.”
The RG1xx and RS1xx IoT Starter Kit is fully certified for FCC, ISED, EU, AS/NZS, IMDA, and Bluetooth SIG and is AWS qualified.
