NETVOX Wireless Sensor R718PB14 is a ClassA type device based on the LoRaWAN protocol.

The R718PB14 connected to a 5TE soil sensor to report the temperature, conductivity and soil moisture collected by the sensor to the corresponding gateway


Principle of Operation

NETVOX Wireless Temperature Sensor outputs the ambient temperature in degrees Celsius. It is programmed to sleep for a user-given time interval (heartbeat) and then wakeup. To stay within the abilities of the processor, the temperature is computed off a data table provided by the manufacturer.


Example Applications

  • Soil moisture content detection
  • Soil temperature detection
  • Soil conductivity
  • Other


    Features of NETVOX Sensors

    • Battery Life* :
    5 years (Conditions: ambient temperature 25 °C, 20 triggers/day, txpower = 20dBm, LoRa spreading factor SF = 10)
    • Over-the-air updates (future)
    • Third-Party online wireless sensor monitoring and notification system to configure sensors, view data and set alerts via SMS text and email (optional)
    • Available third-party platform: Actility/ThingPark, TTN, MyDevices/Cayenne
    • R718X series carry magnets which can be attached to ferromagnetic materials and objects
    *Actual range may vary depending on environment.
    *Battery life is determined by sensor reporting frequency and other variables
