MODBUS to LoRaWAN Converter

MODBUS-to-LoRaWAN-Sept

One of the latest and popular offerings from CASCADEMIC Solutions is the MODBUS to LoRa converter.

It uses the LoRaWAN™ technology, which is a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) specification intended for wireless battery operated Things in a regional, national or global network. LoRa modulation technique provides significantly longer range compared to other wireless technologies.

The converter collects the data from MODBUS(RTU) slave device and converts it to LoRa environment. The gateway collects the data and sends to the cloud using GPRS.
