The RN2483 LoRa® Mote is a LoRaWAN™ Class A end-device based on the RN2483 LoRa modem.  As a standalone battery-powered node, the Mote provides a convenient platform to quickly demonstrate the long-range capabilities of the modem, as well as to verify inter-operability when connecting to LoRaWAN v1.0 compliant gateways and infrastructure.

The Mote includes light and temperature sensors to generate data, which are transmitted either on a fixed schedule or initiated by a button-press.  An LCD display provides feedback on connection status, sensor values and downlink data or acknowledgements.  A standard USB interface is provided for connection to a host computer, providing a bridge to the UART interface of the RN2483 modem.  As with all Microchip RN family of products, this enables rapid setup and control of the on-board LoRaWAN protocol stack using the high level ASCII command set.
