The rapid growth of IoT (“Internet of things”) has resulted in new communication techniques, specifically developed to meet the growing demand of high energy-efficiency and long range. LoRaWAN is one such technique. CMi4170 is mounted inside an Engelmann Sensostar/Sensostar C to deliver meter data to a receiving server via a LoRaWAN network. The product can achieve up to 10+1 years of battery life, is energy-efficient, has a long communication range and is easily retrofitted inside an already deployed meter. CMi4170 is easily configured through Elvaco OTC mobile app (via NFC). With CMi4170, Elvaco offers a meter communication module designed for customers that require a user-friendly and cost-effective solution.
