Package content:

  • Lora Hack Shield - MCHP board;
  • Arduino header set.
  • Note: The package do not include the antennas. Choose antennas here.

Board Features:

  • Dimensions: 53mm x 68mm;
  • Integrated LDO 3,3V up to 600mA;
  • Works directly with any arduino regardless of the working voltage (5V / 3,3V);
  • Integrated LoRaWAM™ Class A modem RN2483(868MHz);
  • Simple ASCII command Set to interface LoRa modem;
  • Has a prototyping area;
  • Option to choose the uart communicating with the radio (Soft / Hard);
  • All the RN2483 pins are available for connection;
  • Open source Hardware: github repository;
  • Open source Software: github repository;

LoRa Features:

  • Uses license-free ISM band;
  • Long Range (up to 15Km);
  • Low power consumption;
  • Low data-rate (from 0.3 kbps to 50 kbps depending on distance);
  • Is a secure protocol, the encryption of your information is always ensured;

Using the Lora Hack Shield - MCHP board to connect your devices to the cloud is a very easy task, you can take advantage of the Arduino ecosystem to connect your sensors and put it to work in the blink of an eye.

You can be as far as 15Km from the Gateway and still with coverage, this will happen in optimum conditions as free line of sight, no obstacles, etc. In an urban environment the coverage will be arround 2 - 4 Km but depends in the configuration of the urban environment.

This module was designed with the LoRaWAM™ connectivity in our minds but it also can be used to make a data link between 2 or more Lora Hack boards. You can easily create a secure, low data-rate link between two nodes over a few Kms.
