The SOTB Battery-less Soil Monitor is a solution intended for use in extremely low-power sensing applications. It harvests ambient energy (e.g. solar or wind) and gathers temperature and humidity data, sending the results over the long-range LoRa® radio network.
- Minimal power draw with little maintenance:
- Sleep state with a wakeup timer, drawing <1 mA when operating at 1.8V
- Can operate without a battery by charging/discharging a capacitor, and drastically reduce the need for in-field maintenance
- Long-range (up to 30 miles in rural areas) transmission of data is suited for outdoor usage and agricultural applications
