Radiocrafts offer Sigfox modules with built in sensor interfaces for fast time to market and compact designs, offering higher ROI to our customers, by reducing the BoM and design time significantly.

Radiocrafts Intros Sigfox Module with Integrated Sensor Interfaces - RF CafeOslo, Norway - Radiocrafts AS, a leading provider of RF modules and wireless connectivity solutions, announced today two new Sigfox modules, both with integrated sensor interfaces. The new modules are ideal for making a Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) with wireless sensors.

The RC1682-SSM and RC1692HP-SSM are both an expansion of the RC1682-SIG and RC1692HP-SIG modules released in 2015. The RC1682 support Radio Zone 1 (e.g. Europe) and the RC1692HP supports Radio Zone 2 (e.g. Americas) and Radio Zone 4 (e.g. Oceania). The proven Sigfox modem is complemented by a dedicated interface for a number of industrial and environmental sensors. The sensors are carefully selected to enable customers to build complete sensor nodes by just adding the sensor, an antenna and a power supply to the compact SSM module.

Sigfox is the world's leading provider of connectivity for the Internet of Things (IoT). The company has built a global network to connect billions of devices to the Internet while consuming as little energy as possible, as simply as possible.

The sensor interface modules add significant value and benefit to our customers by removing the need for an external microcontroller to manage the sensors. This as a major step in making IOT remote sensor networking a task that does not require specialist competence, and also a major step in reducing the overall system cost for the customers.

Sensor interfaces supported includes analogue inputs, GPIO and I2C interfacing industrial and environmental sensors.

The compact surface mount modules, which measure only 12.7 x 25.4 mm, are delivered in tape and reel packaging. Samples and Developments Kits are available now.
