SensorData LoRaWAN

LoRaWAN Data-Logger in a rugged, IP67 rated housing


SensorData is a battery powered-data communicator that interfaces to a range of sensors, GPS, inputs and outputs, and uploads data via LoRaWAN networks. Great for agriculture and remote sensor monitoring applications.

  • IP67 rated housing
  • SDI-12 interface, common with agricultural sensors
  • I2C Interface,
  • Ultra-long battery life

Rugged & Weatherproof

Multiple Inputs

Meter Pulse Counting

Multiple Power Options

  • LoRaWAN Device

    The LoRaWAN network allows the SensorData LoRaWAN device to communicate over long range and have long battery life. The SensorData LoRaWAN covers 868MHz and 915MHz global regions.

    External Antenna

    The 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 applications.

    Low profile, compact, rugged IP67 rated housing.

    Made of sturdy ABS/Polycarbonate plastic the housing is extremely tough and UV resistant to survive bumps and knocks and many years in the sun and weather.

    The housing screws together for easy assembly, and caters for a number of cable glands to allow for waterproof cable entry to the housing. The standard external antenna SMA connector is IP65 rated but you can replace it with a IP67 version.

    In applications where the housing may be subjected to sudden temperature changes it is recommended that a GoreVent is fitted to assist with pressure equalisation (e.g. irrigation spraying).

    Dimensions: 155mm x 130mm x 40mm

    Operating Temperature

    -20°C to +60°C
    For operation in extreme temperatures the device must be fitted with Lithium batteries

    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. The 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.


    The optional GPS module allows the SensorData to periodically update its location and time. This is very handy to know the exact position of your sensors, and to obtain and accurate time update.

    3-D Accelerometer

    Used in combination with the GPS to provide low power tracking of the assset.


    This interface is commonly used in agricultural sensors and measurement devices such as:
    • Soil moisture probes
    • Temperature
    • Electrical conductivity (EC) of soils
    • Water levels/pressures

    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 and humidity sensors, as well as numerous others.

    Switched Sensor Power (Vbat or 12V)

    Used to control the battery power to external sensors and peripherals. Load limited and short circuit protected.
    12V capable boost is essential to supply SDI-12 sensors, especially over long cable runs.

    Digital Inputs

    3 x digital inputs, 2 with low-power pulse counting

    Analogue Inputs

    2 x Analogue inputs reading 0V to 30V with auto-ranging
    Built-in battery voltage monitoring

    3.3V Switched Power

    Used to control the 3.3V power to external sensors and peripherals. Load limited and short circuit protected.


    Device configuration can be done over-the-air (OTA) via downlink messages, or via USB cable for firmware updates and configuration.

    Test Button

    Convenient to test installation and wiring is good

    Status LED

    For convenient visual feedback
  • The SDI-12 and I2C interfaces, along with the analogue and digital inputs allow a wide variety of sensors to be connected to the SensorData LoRaWAN. 
  • Firmware Smarts

    LoRaWAN Data Management

    The Oyster LoRaWAN device manages the data plan that it is configured for to maximise the use of the allocated LoRaWAN data messages

    OTA Configuration

    The Oyster can be remotely configured and some of the key operational parameters updated via the LoRaWAN downlink messages.

  • Software and Data Managment

    Data from the SensorData LoRaWAN device is sent to LoRaWAN gateways, which in turn will report the data via their LoRaWAN cloud infrastructure to the back-end server platform for processing and reporting. The LoRaWAN network server is not provided by Digital Matter.

    There are several LoRaWAN network service providers for customers to choose from. Each of them have their own management interface and formats for providing data to a software platform.

    Please contact Digital Matter if you require information on the integration of the SensorData LoRaWAN data payloads.

    User Interface:

    This can be Digital Matter’s Telematics.Guru platform which has built-in support for the SensorNode LoRaWAN device and protocols, or to your own server platform. Please contact Digital Matter if you require information on the integration of the SensorNode LoRaWAN data formats.
