The MFR-NODE has been designed to provide flexible communication, sensor and power options. The MFR-NODE supports SDI-12, four 32-bit dry-contact counting digital inputs and four single-ended (two differential) 0 - 3 V analogue inputs, with selectable 12 V, 5 V or 2.5 V excitation and a 0-100khz frequency input.
With an onboard SD-Card, the MFR-NODE provides stand-alone data logging capabilities and full data redundancy in the event of temporary loss of communications or dropped packets – ideal for research applications. Data is stored in csv format for ease of use.
The MFR-NODE supports sensors with higher power requirements; a solar panel can charge either the internal lithium-ion battery or both the node and sensor can be powered by an external DC power system (e.g. battery or mains source).
LTE Cat M1/NB-IoT provides the option for remote installation in areas outside the range of LoRaWAN networks. Fully encrypted data communications, with JSON or csv files transmitted over MQTT(S) to a user-defined broker with dedicated MQTT support Microsoft Azure Iot Hub.
With the option of LoRaWAN or CAT M1/NB-IoT connection, the MFR-NODE is an ideal upgrade for older data loggers that relied on 3G communications as the network shutdown is approaching for those data networks. Please contact ICT International to discuss further your requirements, email@example.com.
