Advantages and disadvantages of LoRa module and application areas

By sdga:NiceRF Wireless Technology Co., Ltd

LoRa is a promising low-power wide-area network communication technology. It has been widely used in various fields of the IoT. It can be seen that the LoRa communication module occupies an important position in the IoT industry. Although the development prospect of LoRa module is very good, it also has its advantages and disadvantages as a technical product. Which application fields it is suitable for will be analyzed one by one below.

LoRa module LoRa610Pro


Advantages of LoRa module

1. Low power consumption and long communication distance. The sensitivity of the LoRa module is as high as -139 dBm, and the communication distance is greater than 7000 kilometers, which solves the problem of low power consumption and long distance.

2. Easy to construct and deploy, and license-free frequency band nodes. The price of the LoRa module is very close to the people, and it will play a huge advantage in all major areas of the Internet of Things.


Disadvantages of LoRa module

1. Spectrum interference. The development momentum of LoRa module is very good. With the increase of LoRa equipment and network deployment, there will be a certain amount of spectrum interference between each other.

2. Need to build a new network. During the LoRa deployment process, new signal towers, industrial base stations and even portable home gateways need to be built.


Which application areas are LoRa modules suitable for?

1. Smart wireless meter reading: LoRa module is widely used in smart wireless meter reading. The data acquisition equipment of the distribution box transmits the power consumption information of each household to the LoRa module, and it transmits the data to the LoRa module through the gateway. Remote control center. The advantages of low power consumption, long distance and low cost are more conducive to large-scale promotion and help the development and construction of smart cities.

2. Agricultural informatization: comprehensive development and application of modern network technology in the agricultural field, making agricultural production more convenient, effectively reducing costs and increasing yields.


LoRa realizes the interconnection of agricultural nodes, low power consumption and long transmission distance, and no communication cost, which makes its large-scale application in agricultural production a reality. For example, in the detection of water quality, temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide concentration, and pests, the collected equipment information can be passed to the control dispatch center through the LoRa module, and automatic irrigation, automatic spraying and other measures can be carried out based on real-time data analysis.

All in all, the advantages of low power consumption, long distance, high sensitivity, and strong anti-interference ability of LoRa module make it widely used in the fields of IoT agriculture, smart wireless meter reading, robot control, security system, vehicle tracking, and smart city in the future. The development of LoRa technology is broader.
