The RS485 to LORAWAN converter-transmitter allows transparent transmission of RS485 frames. These frames are stored in transmitted at regular intervals. If the frame is larger than the LoRaWAN frame, the data is transmitted in several separate packets. It actually acts as a “transparent” modem operating in LORAWAN class C mode (supplied with external electricity). The LORAWAN converter transfers this serial command to the connected counter / machine. If a response is received, the converter returns it as one or more LORAWAN uplink messages. In pulse counting mode, the pulse counter counts electrical pulses at a maximum frequency of 200 Hz. It is possible to configure the frequency of transmission of frequency data from the meters independently, between 5 minutes and 24 hours. The pulse counter supports the “Open Collector” circuit type.
In dry input mode, the pulse counter generates a LORAWAN message when the circuit is open or closed (or in both cases).
The pulse counter also transmits the ambient temperature and the level of its battery.
The configuration of the sensor is done via a USB connection via a free PC application. Or by LORAWAN downlink message.
