The NSE01 is based on the LSN50 platform, a long range LoRaWAN node that provides spread spectrum communication and high interference immunity whilst minimising power consumption. Its IP68 waterproof design makes it suitable for outdoor use and its powered by a 4000mA Li/SOCl2 non-rechargeable battery. Due to its low power operation, users can expect years of operation with a moderate logging rate.
The NSE01 is ultimately an LSN50 with a soil moisture sensor pre-fitted. The default settings will send a record every 20 minutes, with message confirmation turned off. The sensor is factory calibrated for Mineral soil types and has the following properties.
|Parameters||Soil Moisture||Soil Conductivity||Soil Temperature|
|Range||0-100%||0-20,000uS/cm||-40 to 85C|
The operating parameters and many other settings on the LSN50 can be modified via AT commands on the serial port interface, but an FT232RL USB-TTL converter is required for this task (not supplied). The communications port can also be used to upload new firmware via the built-in bootloader. Some settings can be changed via the server, like the transmit interval, the reset command, confirmation status and what mode too run in. To work work correctly with the Soil/EC/Temperature sensor, it needs to run in mode 2 (AT+INTMOD=2).
Telemetry2U has a live demo of a Dragino LES01 soil moisture, EC and temperature sensor running on our IoT Platform.
