Sigfox Data-Logger with SDI-12, I2C, Digital Inputs, Analogue Inputs, GPS, Ultra-long Battery Life, in a Waterproof Housing
SensorData is a battery-powered data communicator that interfaces to a range of sensors, GPS, inputs and outputs, and uploads data via the Sigfox network. Great for agriculture and remote sensor monitoring applications.
- Up to 5 years once daily update
- Up to 2 years of hourly updates
- SDI-12 interface to soil moisture probes, temperature, EC and others
- I2C interface for a wide range of sensors including: Temperature, Humidity, Vibration, CO2 gas and many others
- Configuration via USB cable and over-the-air Sigfox downlink messages
- 2 x Analogue Inputs with auto range
- 3 x Digital Inputs
Low-profile IP67 rugged housing
The IP67 rated housing is made of sturdy ABS/Polycarbonate plastic to survive bumps and knocks and many years in the sun and weather. It is low-profile and caters for a number of cable glands to allow for waterproof cable entry to the housing. The housing screws together for easy assembly, and has convenient mounting tabs.
-20°C to +60°C
For operation in extreme temperatures the device must be fitted with Lithium batteries
|Dimensions (mm)||L 183 x W 145 x H 40|
This interface is commonly used in agricultural sensors and measurement devices for soil moisture probes, temperature, electrical conductivity (EC) of soils, water levels / pressures, other SDI-12 probes and sensors.
|I2C Interface||I2C (inter-IC communications) is an interface commonly used in sensor modules. This allows the SensorData to talk to a wide range of sensors including: temperature, humidity, vibration, CO2 gas and many others. Speak to Digital Matter about sensor support.|
3 x digital inputs, 0-48V
2 provide low power pulse counting
2 x analogue inputs, 0-30V with auto-ranging
Built-in battery voltage monitoring
Sigfox Zones RCZ1, RCZ2, RCZ4
|External antenna||External ISM band antenna provides for maximum link budget with the flexibility to install a high-gain antenna if needed. Especially important for long range in rural agriculture applications.|
|Power (4-6V)||The SensorData is ultra-low power and is designed to run off a set of 4 x “C” cell Alkaline batteries for a full season. This includes powering the sensors and SDI-12 probes. These off-the-shelf batteries are low cost and readily available. It can also be powered by a USB 5V wall socket if permanently installed in a location with power.|
Switched Sensor Power
(6V or 12V)
|Used to control the battery power to external sensors and peripherals. Load limited and short circuit protected. 12V capable boost is available to supply SDI-12 sensors, especially over long cable runs.|
|3.3V Switched Power||Used to control the 3.3V power to external sensors and peripherals. Load limited and short circuit protected.|
|GPS||The optional GPS module allows the SensorData to periodically update its location and time. Know the exact position of your sensors, and obtain an accurate time update.|
Via USB cable for firmware updates.
Via over the air (OTA) downlinks for configuration
|Test Button||Convenient to test installation and wiring.|
|Status LED||Visual feedback in the field for testing|
