Elecrow’s LR1302 is A LoRa Gateway Module for Advanced IoT Applications

The LR1302 is a new and advanced LoRa gateway module with a mini PCIe form factor. Powered by Semtech’s SX1302 chip, this device can achieve high performance with low power consumption. It can handle 8-channel data transmission, which makes it suitable for applications like industrial automation and smart city management.

At the core of the module, we have the Semtech Network’s SX1302 LoRaWAN chip that surpasses its predecessors (SX1301 and SX1308) in terms of better sensitivity, lower power consumption, and reduced operating temperature.

The LR1302 module is compatible with EU868 (863-870MHz) and US915 (902-928MHz) all credit to the Semtech SX1302 Chip. It features a sensitivity of -125dBm @125K/SF7 and -139dBm @125K/SF12, with TX power of 26 dBm for EU868 and 25 dBm for US915, while operating on a 3.3V power supply.

The LR1302 module features 8-channel data transmission which becomes a must-have where there is a need for high throughput. The device operates at ultra-low operating temperature which removes the need for extra cooling. Additionally, it complies with CE and FCC certifications, streamlining the certification process for products.

The LR1302 module is a small, compact device with a mini PCIe interface with 52 pins. It comes in two versions, SPI and USB, each with different power usage. this device has a wide operating range which ranges from -40°C to 85°C, so it can adapt well to diverse environmental conditions.
