What is LoRaTech COMBO node?
The LORATECH COMBO node is a scanning and remote measurement platform supplied by RVTech s.r.o. It is an expansion board for the KETCube platform for industrial use. It can be ordered in many design versions (power supply, box, functionality).
In what configurations does the LoRaTech COMBO node work?
LORATECH Combo comes in different configuration variants depending on the functionality selected. The device name consists of the product family name “LORATECH Combo” and the express chain specific to the selected hardware configuration of the device:
LORATECH COMBO AA [BBCCDDEE] -X [XX] (Y)
- The AA, BB, CC, DD or EE label encodes the available functions.
- The X, XX, or XXX label codes the available sources of power.
- Label (Y) encodes the LORATECH Combo cover solution.
LORATECH COMBO MBRSS4VMTH-BV(K)
It is a fully functional configuration in a standard IP65 enclosure (code K in brackets at the end of the label).
It enables communication via the M-BUS protocol (MB code) and through the MoDBUS protocol (using RS485) (RS code).
It can receive up to 4 different S0 signals (code S4), measures the supply voltage level (VM code) and has an integrated temperature and relative humidity sensor (code TH).
The device can be powered from a battery (code B) or from an external DC source (code V).
In addition to the covering in a standard box, it is also possible to have a version in a DIN compatible box.
Is it possible to configure LoRaTech COMBO node?
The LoRaTech COMBO node can be configured via UART communication with the terminal using a USB converter cable.
Based on the hardware configuration and the software activation of the individual modules, the structure of the data frame and therefore the parsing table in the LoRaTech application is developed.
The period of measurement and sending of the informations can be set.
The node supports LoRaWAN connections both through OTAA (Over The Air Activation) and ABP (Authorization By Personalization).
