Hello Everyone, long time no see! In the previous New Product Post we introduced you industrial-grade IoT product accessaries and sensors monitoring pH, soil moisture & temperature, salinity, water leak, and liquid level.
As more and more customers are calling for more diverse and wider ranges of products supplying IoT scenarios, to meet your demands, this time we released several interesting and useful products, including LoRa-E5, Rain Gauge RG-15, Rain Gauge RG-9, NDIR CO2 Sensor, and the Things Indoor LoRaWAN WiFi Gateway. Here by following this blog, hope you can find the products suiting your IoT application.
LoRa-E5 is a low-cost, ultra-low power, extremely compact, and high-performance LoRaWAN Module designed by Seeed Technology Co., Ltd. It contains ST system-level package chip STM32WLE5JE. It is noteworthy that STM32WLE5 is the first SoC integrated with the combo of LoRa RF and MCU chip. The LoRa-E5 module is embedded with ARM Cortex M4 ultra-low-power MCU and LoRa SX126X and therefore supports (G)FSK mode and LoRa. It is designed with industrial standards, hence it’s highly suitable to be used in designing industrial IoT products like various IoT nodes, with a wide working temperature at -40℃ ~ 85℃.
Industrial Grade Rain Sensors
As rainfall volume is fundamental for people, especially farmers and climate practitioners, to gain information to measure and tackle problems in weather, climate studies, hydrological network monitoring, agriculture, and food delivery, optical rain gauges are necessary for those scenarios to be your best helpers.
Seeed launched two kinds of compacted sized industrial-grade rain sensors for you to choose from. Both industrial-grade optical rain gauges are intended to replace conventional tipping buckets of rain gauges and are featured easy-installation and maintenance-free, suitable for applications in weather and climate studies, hydrological network monitoring, agriculture, and other scenarios that need monitoring rainfall. but Rain Gauge RG-15 and Rain Gauge RG-9 monitor different parameters of rainfall. Based on the comparison chart and the short introductions belong, you can thus choose the ones that best suit your demand.

|Tipping Bucket Accuracy||±10% in our controlled environment||–|
|Serial Communication RS232||Command Based Bidirectional||Command Based Bidirectional|
Industrial-Grade Optical Rain Gauge RG-15 measures accurate rainfall volume and intensity. It comes with an open-collector output that emulates a conventional tipping bucket, as well as serial communications that provide more detailed data and allow for configuration of the device. It can be configured through the serial port, or optionally via DIP switches. It features easy-installation and maintenance-free and is suitable for applications in weather and climate studies, hydrological network monitoring, and agriculture, and other scenarios that need monitoring rainfall data.
Industrial-Grade Optical Rain Gauge RG-9 detects the size of raindrops and provides information on rain intensity to users. The sensitivity of this sensor includes 3 different levels: Rain Drops, Very Light, Medium, and Heavy. The duration of the positive detection is also selectable: No Hold, Hold Time 5 Minutes, Hold Time 10 Minutes, and Hold Time 15 Minutes. It has an open-collector output that emulates a conventional tipping bucket, as well as RS232 serial communications that provide more detailed data allowing for configuration of the device. It can be configured through the serial port, or optionally via DIP switches.
The digital NDIR CO2 SOLO CO2 5000 concentration sensor supports Modbus (Modbus-RTU/Modbus-ASCII) RS485 and SDI-12 communication protocols, which makes it compatible with the wide power supply voltage of 5-16V. The built-in calibration functionality and compact size make it widely applicable in both indoor and outdoor environments. For instance, greenhouses, cities, poultry farms, and transportation stations are scenarios where CO2 level detector is needed.
The Things Indoor Gateway is an 8-channel LoRaWAN gateway based on SX1308 with build-in ESP8266 Wi-Fi connectivity. It is a The Things Network product featuring high reliability, high performance, and cost-effective. With multiple versions and various power outlets available, it satisfies a wide range of applications requiring dynamic coverage. This gateway is able to connect with the secure and collaborative Internet of Things Network which is built that spans across many countries around the globe to provide coverage to millions of people.
As well, it supports LoRaWAN 1.0.3 and therefore is compatible with other LoRaWAN sensors, like Seeed SenseCAP LoRaWAN Sensor Series. Click and check the wiki to find how to use TTN Gateway and SenseCAP together. You can apply this product in any indoor IoT scenarios requiring low-power, long-range dynamic coverage. Multiple versions are available in our store with CE/FCC/IC/RCM/WPC/RoHS certification.
