XDK LoRa Extension

Data exchange beyond limits

Product Picture XDK LoRa Extension

Small extension, long range

Are you searching for a wireless and secure communication solution that allows for penetrating structures such as buildings?

Then, there is no way around our LoRa-Extension for the XDK. Exchange your data up to a range of 40km and make use of Firmare Updates Over-The-Air, which is a key distinction to similar technologies.

With the brand new XDK LoRa Extension you can now connect your XDK to a LoRa network.Take advantage of measuring data with 8 different XDK-sensors and connect the data via LoRa to your backend.

You want to learn more about the XDK itself?

The all-in-one sensor-based device for the realization of all IoT use cases or proof of concepts. Within its compact housing, the XDK is battery powered, offers 8 sensors, connects via Bluetooth, Wifi and now also via LoRa.

Your potential use cases

Home & Building Automation

If facility management companies have to run buildings within a certain period of time due to the rental contract, building automation and the required sensors cannot be installed economically on a wired base. The LoRa Connectivity module of the XDK lowers that entrance barrier efficiently. LoRa connectivity allows a “deep in coverage” of the wireless signal with a single or a few amount of LoRa gateways. Therefore, the XDK LoRa extension offers a huge economic benefit in such a scenario.

Industrial Monitoring & Control

If in industrial automation scenarios, WiFi and wired connectivity do not fit to the actual use cases because of interferences or costly cable paths, LoRa can be used as a cost efficient wireless solution using only one or a few gateways to get out all required information of your production plant. The XDK with its 8 different sensors and the LoRa connectivity extension fits perfectly in these scenarios, optimizing Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).

Renewable Energy

Renewable energy production equipment like wind turbines or photovoltaic fields are often located in remote areas where cell phone net availability restrictions may exist, or cable connectivity is costly. In these areas LoRa, with its possibility to connect up to 40 km to public and private networks, may solve the existing connectivity problem.

Supply Chain Management

Supply chain management use cases often require a higher range than WiFi offers. TelCo connectivity may be too costly or in remote areas not available. In this segment, LoRa, with its possibility to connect up to 40 km to public and private networks, may solve the existing connectivity problem. The XDK, with its 8 sensors and the extension possibility provides a perfect feature setup to solve this sensor/connectivity issue.

Smart City

Smart city approaches sometimes require a TelCo independent connectivity to be able to address cost sensitive sensor use cases within communal companies or other citizen services. The XDK, with its LoRa extension offers the possibility to connect to public or communal driven networks may solve this connectivity/sensor issues.

Smart Grid

To collect sensor data with a wired approach in smart grid environments often generates an additional problem with electric arcs because of lightning strikes. The high voltage or high current scenarios in remote areas often also often harm wireless performance of TelCo provided connectivity. The XDK with its 8 sensors, LoRa extension and possibility to connect up to 40km to public and private networks may solve the existing connectivity problem
