Review Dragino LoRaWAN RS485 to LoRaWAN RS485-LN Converter #8

I present the Dragino RS485-LN is an RS485 to LoRaWAN converter, a few months ago I ordered a couple of modules for testing. This converter would allow monitoring and controlling devices over long distances, adding the versatility of the RS485. Characteristics LoRaWAN Class A and Class C protocol (default Class C) Frequency bands: CN470 /…

Review Gateway RAK2245 Pi HAT Ver. B (Multichannel) LoRAWAN # 6

Continuing our LoRaWAN tests, a few months ago the materials arrived to assemble my new gateway using the RAK2245 Pi HAT Module for Raspberry Pi. In previous tutorials we used the RAK833 USB / SPI. This time we will review our new RAK2245 Pi HAT module. Features Compatible with Raspberry Pi 3 Model B +…

Install drivers and (UDP Packet Forwarder) Raspberry Pi with Gateway RAK833 Version USB / SPI LoRaWAN # 5

In previous tutorials we reviewed our Gateway using the RAK833, the Radio module created by RAKWireless, adding a Raspberry Pi we can create a professional and functional gateway for our LoRaWAN implementations. Important: This tutorial is only focused on the RAK833 that have USB and SPI communication, for the SPI version another driver and another…

Review HELTEC Module (WIFI LoRa 32) 915-868Mhz for LoRaWAN #4

I have been collecting information about functional nodes for basic LoRaWAN tests for a while. This time I present the HELTEC LoRa 32 v1 Wifi module, it collects several interesting functions in IoT applications. This node is the integration of an ESP32 and a LoRa Chip SX1276 (868-915Mhz) 0.96 inch Oled screen, usb-serial converter CP2102….

Review Module RAK811 LoRa Node AT-Commands LoRaWAN # 3

Some time ago, in previous tutorials we have already determined some factors to choose the appropriate gateway (gateway LoRaWAN) for your LoRaWAN application, this tutorial was created gathering considerations before starting, with considerations scopes and concepts about LoRaWAN. Based on these considerations, a robust, powerful and functional gateway or gateway has been assembled according to…

Review Gateway Concentrator RAK833 SPI/USB mPCIe (Multichannel) LoRaWAN # 2

In previous tutorials we have already determined some factors to choose the appropriate (gateway LoRaWAN) for your LoRaWAN application, there are many hardware solutions available, but I have chosen the RAK833-SPI / USB from RAKwireless, a LoRaWAN hub module that It allows to create a multichannel gateway, I consider it the cost-effective option in relation…

10 Professional PCBs for $ 2 with JLCPCB – Ard-LoRa Prototypes

In my last tests I have used platforms like ESP8266 implementing LoRa modulation and in some applications with LoRaWAN, in this opportunity I will use the Arduino platform and I will manufacture a prototype I have contacted again to JLCPCB that they offer a PCB manufacturing service at a very reasonable price. In this opportunity I will use…

Gateway LoRaWan ESP8266 & RFM95 (ESP-LoRa) 915mHz single channel with The Things Network

For a few weeks I have tested with LoRa technology, we have also heard about LoRaWAN, some time later we created an account on the TTN Platform or “The Things Network”, applied especially to these LP-WAN networks, for this new tutorial we will create a gateway LoRaWAN using an ESP8266 module and a Radio Modem RFM95/95W at…
