sigfox sensor device

A lot has changed since we launched SimplePack 3.0 one and a half years ago. We are proud to introduce now SimplePack 4.0. The aim of the development was to provide:

  • better radio performance

  • better battery life

  • better WiFi performance for WiFI tracking

  • more tracking specific modes

  • more modes for cold chain monitoring

  • more modes with redundancy

  • support of Monarch and of RC7

It is more evolutionary than revolutionary improvement but important nevertheless.

The format of uplinks and downlinks stays the same as well as support from the www.iofrog.com platform.

Better radio performance

We are constantly tuning the radio parameters and we are achieving 2dBi better performance in comparison with the early 3.0 versions

Better battery life

Even though the message transmission consumption stays the same we were able to improve idle consumption in most of the modes. Also, the WiFi scan is lower now

Better WiFi performance for WiFI tracking

In early versions of 3.0 we had used active WiFi scanning. We now use exclusively passive WiFi scanning mode that sees even hidden SSIDs and has better sensitivity

More tracking specific modes

Based on customer requests we added quite a few modes for tracking plus enabled independent event reporting

More modes for cold chain monitoring and more modes with redundancy

A prime example is a new mode for Periodic temperature measurement that enables you to record the precise temperature every 5 minutes and stay on batteries for 4 years, while warning you of any temperature increase or threshold crossing immediately and at the same time having redundancy (so you can lose messages without losing any information).

Support of Monarch and of RC7 

We have upgraded to the latest Monarch libraries and added RC7 support for Russia

For the next edition, we are working mainly on Over the air local broadcast configuration and firmware update.

We are only slightly changing the names of some of the products to better match the use cases while keeping the prices the same. Magnetometer is now available as a standard in the Door edition only. Buzzer is available upon request.
