Laird Introduces RS191/RS186 Multi-wireless Sensor Platform

Laird is launching a multi-wireless sensor platform that enables enterprise customers to deploy wireless sensors in long-range Enterprise Internet of Things (EIoT) applications, especially those requiring precise temperature and humidity control.

Laird’s RS191 / RS186 – which will be displayed at Sensors Expo, June 27-29, at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose – leverages LoRaWAN and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) connectivity in one IP65-rated form factor.

The RS1xx is the latest addition to Laird’s Sentrius Series of LPWAN connectivity solutions, which includes the RG1xx multi-interface gateway, RM1xx LoRa + BLE modules, and LPWAN antennas. Engineering product samples for the Sentrius RS1xx are available now for qualified customers, with a full rollout planned for Q4 2017.

This ecosystem of pre-integrated solutions provides developers and OEMs with the flexibility and freedom to create everything from a single stand-alone node to a complete end-to-end IoT network.

The RS1xx can send sensor data in harsh RF environments and over long distances to remote LoRaWAN gateways, and with the added benefit of a BLE connectivity option, sensor data can be sent to smartphones and tablets for local configuration, control, or data visualization.

The RS1xx IoT sensor platform is designed for multiple uses, including greenhouses, grain storage, cold chain monitoring, cooling tanks, or any application that requires constant monitoring and reporting of temperature fluctuations, humidity, and other critical metrics across an entire facility.

The RS1xx also serves as a base platform where Laird can work with OEMs to develop specific solutions with an OEM’s own sensors and enclosure requirements.

Sensor data can be routed to the cloud with Laird’s wireless connectivity deployment. With batteries, and simple out-of-the-box configuration, the RS1xx is ready to capture data to a smartphone or tablet.

At its core, the RS1xx utilizes Laird’s RM1xx module hardware, providing LoRaWAN options in 868 and 915MHz frequencies, plus BLE for local data display, configuration, and troubleshooting.

The RS1xx comes equipped with IP65-rated enclosures, robust multi-layer security to safeguard networks at every level, industry leading support services, and it is fully certified for FCC, IC, CE, and Bluetooth SIG listing.
