Essential infrastructure such as irrigation canals, hydroelectric dams, rivers and agricultural farms always need to be monitored to ensure safe and efficient operation.
Currently to do this, there is monitoring technology that utilizes low-power radio. By using long-range wireless communication to monitor activity, it is possible to identify problems as soon as they occur.
The SLR-434M is a compact embedded radio modem, operating in the 434MHz (ISM band). It allows information to be transmitted over long distances in LoRa® mode (approximately 10 kilometers) or operate in conventional FSK mode.
By connecting to an external CPU or PC with UART interface, the user can send data or design simple control systems using Circuit Design's dedicated command protocol for industrial applications. It is also possible to process up to 8 switching signals.
