Description

The SX1272 LoRa module main advantage is the reach increasing but also the cost saving respect other similar modules like XBee 868 or XBee 900. The SX1272 LoRa module uses the SPI bus. The SPI port allows more speed communication and frees up the UART for other purposes like debugging or to connect communication modules.

It comes with an 868 MHz antenna to be used in this frequency.

This kit includes:
SX1272 LoRa module for Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Intel Galileo - 868 MHz
Raspberry Pi to Arduino Shields Connection Bridge

Note: The LoRa module is fully compatible with the Raspberry Pi 2 model B with our latest software.

Note: Raspberry Pi not included. You can take a look at the new Starter Kits for Raspberry Pi, or buy it separately.

LoRa VS LoRaWAN

Libelium currently offers two options of this type of radio technology: LoRa and LoRaWAN

  • LoRa contains only the link layer protocol and is perfect to be used in P2P communications between nodes. LoRa modules are a little cheaper that the LoRaWAN ones. It works in the 868 and 900MHz bands. Go to the LoRa Tutorial.
  • LoRaWAN includes the network layer too so it is possible to send the information to any Base Station already connected to a Cloud platform. LoRaWAN modules may work in the 868/900/433MHz bands. Go to the LoRaWAN Tutorial.

Libelium's LoRa module works in both 868 and 900 MHz ISM bands, which makes it suitable for virtually any country. Those frequency bands are lower than the popular 2.4 GHz band, so path loss attenuation is better in LoRa. In addition, 868 and 900 MHz are bands with much fewer interference than the highly populated 2.4 GHz band.

Besides, these low frequencies provide great penetration in possible materials (brick walls, trees, concrete), so these bands get less loss in the presence of obstacles than higher bands.

The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi.

It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry.

This tutorial allows the user to turn on and off a RGB LED with different colors depending on the data sent by the LoRa gateway.
