Yard Asset Management

For Refrigerated Trailers and Reefers in Yards

Our low-power LoRa temperature sensors are packaged in a waterproof IP67 enclosure and are able to communicate over long distances making them ideal for tracking the temperature and GPS location of reefers and refrigerated trailers in large yards, ensuring that perishable goods are stored at the correct temperature and remain safe for consumption. Our sensors plug & play to install, providing yard managers with quick access to important information about the state and location of their refrigerated trailers. 

Product Features

Supports a wired digital temperature sensor with an accuracy of +/- 0.5°C

When out of coverage from the LoRa network, the ATL-1 will store the messages and will upload them when back in coverage.

The ATL-1 is easily mounted in place with heavy duty magnets, 3M Heavy Duty Tape or screws.

FAQ

In general, LoRa temperature sensors can range in price from around $20 to over $100, depending on their features and capabilities.

It’s important to consider that investing in a high-quality LoRa temperature sensor can provide numerous benefits, including reliable temperature monitoring and remote access to data, which can save time and resources in the long run.

In summary, when considering the cost of a LoRa temperature sensor, it’s important to evaluate its features, reliability, and overall value in order to make an informed purchasing decision.

The most popular option for IoT temperature sensing is a digital temperature sensor.

Digital temperature sensors are widely used in IoT devices due to their low cost, compact size, and low power consumption. They typically consist of a small integrated circuit (IC) that contains a temperature sensor, an analog-to-digital converter (ADC), and a communication interface, such as I2C or SPI.

Digital temperature sensors can provide temperature readings with high accuracy and resolution, and they can be easily integrated into IoT devices and networks. Some examples of digital temperature sensors commonly used in IoT applications include the DS18B20, DHT11, and LM35.

No, LoRa (Long Range) is not a 5G technology. LoRa is a wireless communication protocol that is designed to provide long-range, low-power connectivity for Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

5G, on the other hand, is a cellular network technology that is designed to provide high-speed data connectivity for mobile devices and other applications. 5G networks operate on high-frequency radio bands and use advanced wireless technologies, such as massive MIMO, beamforming, and network slicing, to provide faster data speeds, lower latency, and increased network capacity.

While both LoRa and 5G technologies can be used for IoT applications, they serve different purposes and have different capabilities. LoRa is typically used for low-power, long-range applications where data rates are not a primary concern, while 5G is used for high-speed, high-capacity applications where low latency and high data rates are critical.

Yes, LoRa (Long Range) is known for its energy efficiency, which is one of the key features that make it well-suited for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

LoRa technology is designed to provide long-range, low-power communication for IoT devices. LoRa devices can operate on batteries for several years, even when transmitting data at regular intervals. This is because LoRa uses a modulation scheme that allows for a high signal-to-noise ratio, which results in lower power consumption and longer battery life.

The range of LoRa (Long Range) technology can vary depending on a number of factors, including the environment, antenna type and placement, and the power output of the LoRa device. However, LoRa is designed to provide long-range communication, with a range of up to several kilometers in open outdoor environments.

The longest range LoRa devices typically use a combination of high-power transmitters, directional antennas, and low data rates to achieve long-range communication. For example, some LoRa devices can transmit up to 30 dBm of power, which can extend the range of communication to several kilometers, depending on the environment and other factors.

The placement of temperature and humidity sensors can have a significant impact on the accuracy and reliability of the readings. Here are some general guidelines for placing temperature and humidity sensors:

  1. Temperature sensors: Temperature sensors should be placed in a location that is representative of the area being monitored. The sensor should be placed away from any heat sources or cold drafts that could affect the readings, such as direct sunlight, air conditioning vents, or windows. Ideally, the sensor should be placed at a height of about 1.5 meters from the ground, which is the average height of a person. This will ensure that the sensor is measuring the temperature at the same height as people in the room.

  2. Humidity sensors: Humidity sensors should also be placed in a location that is representative of the area being monitored. The sensor should be placed away from any sources of moisture, such as kitchen or bathroom areas, and should be shielded from direct sunlight. Ideally, the sensor should be placed at a height of about 1.5 meters from the ground, which is the average height of a person. This will ensure that the sensor is measuring the humidity at the same height as people in the room.

In addition to these guidelines, it’s important to ensure that the sensors are not obstructed by any objects or furniture that could affect the airflow around the sensors. It’s also a good practice to regularly calibrate the sensors to ensure that they are providing accurate readings over time.

LoRa (Long Range) technology is designed to provide long-range communication, but its ability to pass through buildings depends on a number of factors, including the building materials, the thickness of the walls, and the location of the LoRa devices.

In general, LoRa signals can penetrate certain types of building materials, such as drywall, wood, and glass, but they may be blocked or attenuated by other materials, such as concrete or metal. The thickness of the walls can also affect the ability of LoRa signals to pass through buildings.

If LoRa devices are located inside a building, the signal strength and range may be reduced due to the attenuation and reflection of the signal by the building materials. In this case, it may be necessary to deploy additional LoRa gateways or repeaters inside the building to ensure reliable communication.

Overall, the ability of LoRa to pass through buildings will depend on the specific environment and deployment, and it’s important to perform site surveys and signal testing to determine the optimal placement of LoRa devices and gateways.
