The LoRa Transceiver—LTR-100—is a wireless device used to connect sensors with a 2 or 4 wire 4-20mA output to a BinCloud® Gateway using long range radio technology. The LTR-100 is a low-cost option for connecting analog sensors to a gateway used to access BinView® or Binventory®data from the cloud. It transmits 4-20 mA sensor data to the BinCloud® gateway over distances up to one-mile line-of-sight, eliminating the need to run wiring to the gateway.
The LTR-100 is compatible with any BinMaster Modbus-capable sensor with or any sensor with a 2 or 4-wire 4-20 m A output including other brands of sensors. It can also serve as a loop power supply to BinMaster CNCR sensors or any sensor that requires 24 VDC less than 0.42A, and accept one Modbus sensor network input. This affordable device decreases the complexity of inventory system installation and eliminates the need to run long spans of wire, further reducing overall system costs..
