LSMP – Professional LoRa Multi-purpose Telemetry Station

LSMP device is a universal, multi-sensor, battery-operated telemetry interface for LoRaWAN® to popular sensors already being used in agriculture and other industries for monitoring soil conditions, water usage, weather conditions, and other parameters.

(The sensor interfaces and the form factor are identical to CSMP device.)

Sensor Interfaces:

  • SDI-12
  • Protected digital (for pulse counting or trigger alerts)
  • Protected analog voltage
  • 4-20mA current loop
  • 1-Wire

Works with external sensors:

  • Single- and multi-level soil moisture probes from manufacturers such as Aquacheck, Sentek, HSTi, Greenshield, TriBus, Decagon, Meter Group: measuring soil moisture, soil temperature, soil salinity, and humidity
  • Pressure switches and pressure transducers
  • Water/liquid depth sensors
  • Flow meters such as Seametrics, McCrometer
  • Tipping bucket rain gauges
  • Weather stations featuring: temperature, humidity, barometric and vapor pressure, precipitation, leaf wetness, wind speed and direction, solar radiation, and lightning activities
  • Dendrometers
  • Pipe/tank electro-conductivity and temperature sensors

Key features:

  • SDI-12 input
  • three independent, configurable general purpose inputs, protected to 24V
  • auxiliary power supply with selectable output voltage output to power external probes or sensors
  • mobile phone app (iPhone & Android) for easy device configuration using NFC communication. (Remote configuration via LoRaWAN® messages is also supported)
  • built-in magnetic-field presence sensor
  • optional plug-in GPS & accelerometer module for localization, tracking, or movement detection
  • configurable low/high sensor value triggers generating alert messages
  • LoRaWAN® class A radio
  • durable, polycarbonate enclosure
    • 4 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ x 3″
    • weatherproof (NEMA 4X) and UV-stabilized
    • pressure venting
    • universal mounting bracket for easy pole/post/wall installation
  • external, high-quality antenna
  • up to 10 year, field replaceable D-cell lithium battery
