Why is PELICAN a Good Choice for Industrial Applications?
For a device to be suitable for industrial applications, it is necessary to make sure it is resistant to harsh RF environments. PELICAN is a good choice in this regard because it is temperature resistant, with an operational temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, so it can be placed in cold rooms or manufacturers with high temperatures. Besides, its small form factor makes it perfect for deployment during shipping and at rail yards. PELICAN has IP67 ingress protection, making it ideal for outdoor deployment as well.
How Does PELICAN Transmit Data?
TEKTELIC PELICAN data transmission process is quite simple, combining the long-range and low-power benefits of LoRaWAN®. One more benefit of this device is that it transmits data not only via LoRaWAN® Networks but also via BLE, ensuring universal availability. It has an internal antenna, so you don’t need any additional transceiver for data transmission.
How Long is the Battery Life of the Device?
PELICAN’s battery life is up to 15 years and it works on the C-Cell battery. It works with low-power consumption, so the battery can work for a long time without the need to change it constantly. Exposure to extreme temperatures doesn’t affect the device as well and the longevity is not reduced. One more important point here is that it doesn’t require a big battery, so it is really compact in size.
