Datascape Industrial (Pty) Ltd

Ion is a customizable LoRaWAN device created to collect data about its environment. Periodically, Ion collects data from inputs, and forwards it over the air to other applications.  Ion integrates with other hardware and sensors giving them the freedom to be deployed virtually anywhere.


Once connected, the data stream can be directed to the cloud, SCADA, mobile devices or web platforms to name a few.  The Ion works well in rural areas or challenging terrain where traditional data transfer infrastructure is limited or unavailable.
