Monitoring and testing low-power long range networks has never been easier. The OccamSmart 8-Channel RF Concentrator, for use in LoRa®-based and LoRaWAN™ networks, allows you to easily bring low-power long range capabilities to your computer by simply plugging the OccamSmart 8-Channel RF Concentrator into a free USB port on your system.
The OccamSmart 8-Channel RF Concentrator delivers an easy-to-use solution for data communication in a long-range low power wireless network. Each device provides eight simultaneous fixed 125 kHz Bandwidth (BW) LoRa®-based receive channels. In addition, there are two auxiliary channels for LoRa® and FSK modulation.
Beyond its receiver capability, the device offers a single flexible transmit channel. This transmit channel is capable of modulation at multiple bandwidths for a LoRa®-based network or FSK/GFS.
