NOTE: If you are interested in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), M2M and the Internet of Things (IoT) projects check our new sensor platform: Waspmote which counts with more than 60 sensors available to use and a low consumption mode of just 0.07uA to ensure years of battery life. Know more at:
This product has been replaced by a new version. See the new GPRS/GSM Quadband Module SIM900 for Arduino.
GPRS Quadband Module for Arduino offers GPRS connection to your Arduino board.
It includes the HiLo SAGEM communication module. It is necessary an antenna in order to establish a communication.
You can send your data by SMS or do missed calls from your Arduino to mobile devices... or to another Arduino connected to this module.
Important! Powering the board.
Some of the USB ports on computers are not able to give all the current the module needs to work, if your module goes down when it tries to connect to the network, you can use an external power supply (12V - 2A) on the arduino. If you use a power supply with output smaller than 2 A, you should add an extra capacitor for the power. For example, a 220 uF electrolytic capacitor between 3.3V and GND.
Tutorial: basic guide for getting started with the module.
