XIAMEN, CHINA–Jan. 20, 2020 – Ursalink, a global M2M hardware provider, offers a LoRaWAN® agricultural monitoring kit (compliant with Ursalink Cloud app and PC) to facilitate the Proof of Concept (PoC) in creating smart agriculture to envision a smarter future.
Smart agriculture includes agricultural practices with the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT). Every IoT application has its own unique requirements. LoRa, compared with other IoT connectivity technology, is one of the best options for agriculture application, due to its unique features. To be specific, LoRa physical layer utilizes the frequencies that are free to use anywhere in the world; LoRa devices consume very little power, making it suitable for battery-powered devices; LoRa covers up to 15 km in suburban areas; a LoRaWAN® gateway can connect 1000 end-node devices.
With the need for a quick PoC, Ursalink offers a turn-key LoRaWAN® agricultural monitoring kit including everything you need from hardware to software and cloud.
LoRaWAN® Kit for Smart Agriculture
Ursalink UC11-N1 Sensor Node collects data from agricultural sensors via RS485. UG85 LoRaWAN® gateway collects data via LoRa connectivity, then use cellular or Ethernet to transfer data to Ursalink Cloud. Ursalink Cloud app and PC stores and displays data.
The Light Sensor detects illuminance applied in agricultural planting. Many plants will do just fine with a wide variety of light levels while some plants require not too much or too little light.
Soil Temperature & Moisture Sensor
The soil temperature and moisture are key measure factors indicating soil temperature and water content. Soil temperature influences aeration, soil moisture content, and the availability of plant nutrients. And water content mainly indicates the need for irrigation.
Soil NKP Sensor
The Soil NPK Sensor is developed to measure and to detect the presence of Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K). Farmers can use the data to decide how much extra nutrients should be added to the soil to increase soil fertility for better plant growth.
UC11-N1 LoRaWAN® Sensor Node
The UC11-N1 is a fully integrated, battery-powered LoRaWAN® node with multiple communication interfaces for connecting to a wide range of external sensors. With a built-in 4900mAh battery backup, Sensor Node can provide power for these sensors with more than 2 months usage.
UC11-T1 Temperature & Humidity LoRaWAN® Sensor
Ursalink UC11-T1 offers an IP65 rating enclosure and robust LoRa connectivity for continuous temperature & humidity monitoring in harsh environments, with an incredible maintenance-free lifetime of 5 years at a 30-minute measurement interval.
UG85 LoRaWAN® Gateway
The Ursalink LoRaWAN® gateway is an intelligent, performant and configurable LoRaWAN® gateway for smart IoT applications. The UG85 is based on the Semtech SX1301 chipset, allowing to operate on multiple channels at the same time. With its embedded Network Server (NS), it is very suitable for small business or private area use cases.
The Ursalink Cloud is a comprehensive cloud service that links vertical and back-end applications to remote assets. Ursalink offers a 1-year free Ursalink Cloud service for new cloud users.
