LoRa is a wireless technology (such as WiFi, Bluetooth, LTE, SigFox or Zigbee) that uses a type of radiofrequency modulation patented by Semtech, a major radio chip manufacturing company. The modulation technology itself is called Chirp Spread Spectrum (or CSS), which has been used in military and space communications for decades.

  • Highly tolerance to interference.
  • High sensitivity in receiving data (−168 dB).
  • Chirp-based modulation.
  • Low power consumption (up to 10 years on one battery).
  • Wide area: 10 to 20 km.
  • Reduced data transfer (up to 255 bytes).
  • Point-to-point connection.
  • Operating frequency bands: 868 MHz in Europe, 915 MHz in America, and 433 MHz in Asia.
  • LoRa technology is ideal for long-distance connections and IoT networks requiring sensors that are not connected to the electricity supply. It is used in a variety of contexts:
    • Smart Cities.
    • Places with poor reception (for example, agricultural or livestock farms in the countryside).
    • To build private networks of sensors and actuators.

LoRaWAN is a network protocol that uses LoRa technology for Low-Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN) to communicate and manage LoRa devices. The LoRaWAN protocol consists of gateways and nodes:

  • Gateways (antennas) – they receive and send information to the nodes.
  • Nodes (devices) – end devices that send and receive information to and from the gateway.

The LoRaWAN standard is the ideal solution to connect sensors.

The LoRaWAN network standard handles the specific requirements of IoT – the Internet of Things.

  • Safe bidirectional connections through end-to-end encryption.
  • Low power consumption (up to 10 years battery life).
  • Wide are communication (10-20 km).
  • Connection of many sensors and devices to public or private networks (up to 1 million nodes on the network).
  • Low data rates.
  • Low transmission, mobility and location service frequency.
  • Interoperability of the various LoRaWAN networks worldwide.

Let’s talk. Looking for ad hoc solutions is our main growth driver. Feel free to contact AONCHIP, and we will help you find your ideal, sustainable solution. We’re up for the challenge!

The WaterSens device can control a total of 4 valves independently.

It can control 9-12 [VDC] latch-type valves.

Here you will find a list of valves validated for our products:

  •  Baccara
  • Hunter
  • Toro
  • Rain Bird
  • Irritrol

Performing 1 activation per day at a temperature of 25[°C], the useful life of the batteries exceeds 10 [years].

  • Batteries must not be replaced during the warranty period. Opening the unit would void the warranty.
  • The device has a battery holder that allows for easy removal and replacement.
  • Near-Field Communication (NFC) is a short-range wireless connectivity standard (ECMA-340, ISO/IEC 18092) that uses magnetic field induction to enable communication between devices when they touch or are brought within a few centimetres of each other.
  • Using NFC, you can configure the LoRaWAN Network parameters and irrigation settings [schedule, activation time, programmes, etc.]

Yes. The device has an API that allows us to connect it to any Network Server after it has been configured.

IOT AONCHIP devices have a 2-year warranty.

From 868 MHz to 915 MHz
