Solar powered

External Solar Panel

The battery can be recharged using the external solar panel option (common USB-recharging is of course another option).

The external solar panel is mounted on a 45º holder which ensures the maximum performance of each outdoor installation.

The rechargeable battery has a capacity of 6600 mA·h, which ensures non-stop operation during the weeks when sunlight is low.

Real time geolocation

Tracking + sensing applications

A dedicated GPS module is available as an accessory, allowing real-time tracking applications.

The idea is simple: read the GPS coordinates (longitude and latitude) and send them by HTTP request to a web server along with extra information from the sensors included in the node. Then use a browser to load the PHP webpage which uses Google Maps to show the location in real-time.
