TBS12PC – LoRaWAN Pulse Counter
The TBS12PC LoRaWAN pulse counter module brings LoRa wireless connectivity to pulse sensors, empowering the long-range capability of LoRa along with flexible configuration. It is available in 2 variants depending on the targeted application: TBS12PC-RG for rain gauges or flow meters monitoring and TBS12PC-FS for float switches monitoring.
The module embeds a low power LoRaWAN 1.02 certified modem, with dual antennas connectors to operate on low (434MHz/470MHz) and high (868MHz/915MHz) ISM bands.
It offers low current consumption, small footprint and easy integration with available rain gauges and float switches on the market.
