ICP Germany has launched UG85, an indoor LoRaWAN gateway. The UG85 is equipped with a 64-bit ARM Cortex A-53 with 800 MHz, 512MB DDR3 RAM, and 8Gb eMMC flash memory. Eight LoRa channels based on the Semtech SX1301 chipset are available; each can be delivered in the frequency band for the respective target country.
The UG85 supports version V1.0 Class A and C as well as V1.0.2. Class A and C and has a maximum range of 10km. As a standard, 10/100/1000 Base-T network connectors, a serial RS-232 connector, a digital input and an output are available.
The gateway functionality can be extended by 3G/4G mobile radio with dual SIM slot and IEEE802.11 b/g/n/ac WiFi. GPS with an accuracy of less than 2.5 meters is also available as an extension. The UG85 supports a variety of network protocols, VPN tunnels, access authentication, firewall functionalities and management options. The serial port can be operated in transparent mode (TCP Client/Server, UDP), as Modbus Gateway (Modbus TCP on Modbus RTU) and as Modbus Master.
The voltage input range of the UG85 is designed for the range from 9 to 48 volts DC. The typical consumption is 2.3 watts and under full load max. 6.5 watts. Optionally, the PoE 802.3 af/at functionality can be added to the Ethernet connection and the UG85 can thus be expanded to a Powered Device. The housing is IP30 protected and particularly compact with 108x90x26 mm (L/W/H). Wall mounting or DIN rail mounting is easily possible. The new gateway is designed for operation in a temperature range from -40 °C to +70 °C.
