LoRaWAN Energy Calculator released

Category : Uncategorized

SecureThings.UK Launches a new LoRaWAN  Energy Calculator uses as its base the Semtech™ air time formula, and takes account of the following  with inputs to improved the calculation of battery life of nodes.give ability to calibrate the calculation for:

  • Sensors that are powered on for a limited time with power control,
  • Start and End time for the waking of Node from sleep
  • The MCU / RX current consumption
  • Sleep current
  • Tx  Power Min and Max
  • Payload size total and for the overhead
  • Battery capacity- useable
  • Min, Avg, and Max SF used

The results  provide  and estimated  energy consumptions based on  the respective elements of the usage such as Tx power, sleep current and gives the battery life  in days and years as well as airtime usage information such as % Duty-cycle and  TTN fair use policy.
