LoRaWAN® Solutions (LoRa-Sense)

What is LoRaWAN® ?


The LoRaWAN® protocol is a Low Power Wide Area Networking (LPWAN) communication protocol based on LoRa. LoRa is a wireless radio frequency technology that operates in a license-free radio frequency spectrum.


The big advantage of LoRa technology is its use of the ISM operating band: 868 MHz, 915 MHz and 923 MHz. These frequencies are much lower than the popular 2,4 GHz and 5 GHz, resulting in lower transmission losses and much better penetration through obstacles such as building walls or trees.

Why use LoRaWAN® ?

​Wireless systems are not new, however, LoRaWAN® takes advantage of the latest technology and security to provide a robust system with excellent coverage. Whilst wireless solutions are not right for every project, LoRaWAN® solutions by Elcomponent ensure the right equipment, radio placement and devices are installed and fully commissioned. Elcomponent have been installing sub metering solutions for over 35 years and know how to supply the most robust, flexible and cost effective energy monitoring solutions. LoRaWAN® is an excellent tool that enhances our ability to provide solutions across all sectors including manufacturing, commercial and public sector.


LoRaWAN® is ideal for: 

  • Primary, secondary and other educational facilities. Easily monitor separate buildings and large loads, electricity, gas and water

  • Local Authorities with dispersed and remote buildings, civic centres, surgeries, halls and other building

  • Commercial office space for energy & carbon management for offices and commercial space. Tenant billing and cost apportionment

  • Manufacturing for general energy management and machine monitoring and general site energy monitoring. Carbon, cost and energy at individual machine level

  • Retail, restaurants, forecourts and multi site retail buildings

  • Industrial estates and sub divided properties, offices and commercial office parks

Small/Medium Sites

Small and Medium systems (typically less than 50 meters) can be perfect for wireless solutions. Wireless technology, provides the opportunity for a 'plug and play' approach, where clients can choose to install their own solution, pre-configured and ready to work.

It is always best to discuss what will  be most suitable but a client can simply specify what and how many devices are required, the system can be pre-configured, documented and shipped to site. Once installed and power applied , the system devices will automatically register themselves and begin sending real time data to the cloud analytics software MW2.

Larger and complex sites (typically 50 meters and above) typically require a site survey to determine the best approach for your energy monitoring system. Re-using existing infrastructure, placement of communications equipment and understanding the site topography, ensure the solution is robust and cost effective
