Multi I/O device and RS485 interface for modbus to LoRa, 5 year battery life

Main feature is battery life of 5 years. There are several designs but currently
only three in production.

Note that GPS location hardware is optional as it is power hungry and
cannot guarantee 5 years battery life.

The three current LoRa Based end points are;

1. Tracka TOC

2. Weather TOC

3. Pulse TOC

There are other variations based on the features of the current end points.

As LoRa WAN is bi-directional you can remotely change configuration files or update specific I/O ports. All TOCs have a USB port for local configuration.

On a bridge analogue circuit the TOC has the ability to harvest the loop current to recharge its internal battery. A small optional solar strip can also be added to recharge the battery and would be an advantage on a Tracka TOC.

The picture below shows the TIC and TOC with pressure sensor for level measurement.
