Titan Radius Gateway
SDI-12 Wireless LPWAN Master
The Radius Gateway uses unlicensed wireless spectrum to seamlessly connect SDI‐12 sensors attached to a Radius Mote over long distances—up to 15 km (9.3 miles), and up to 60 km (31 miles) using Radius Repeaters. The Gateway is the central hub of a Radius network.
Radius networks incorporate advanced low power, long range wireless technologies with proprietary mechanical engineering, power management and power supply to eliminate the need for expensive supporting infrastructure (large batteries, solar panels, enclosures, cables). By eliminating this infrastructure as well as the need for a data logger and communications uplink at each sensor site, the cost of the entire sensor network is reduced dramatically.

* 8% to 42% VMC, in controlled laboratory conditions; factory calibrated for most agricultural soils. In field applications, accuracy may slightly decrease due to the inevitable heterogeneity of soil texture, soil compaction, moisture and fluctuation in soil temperature. The accuracy may also decrease in difficult soil conditions (higher clay and salinity content). In normal conditions, GroPoint sensors will maintain their accuracy from permanent wilting through field capacity in sandy loam through clay soils with less than 60% clay particles. Under moderately saline conditions. GroPoint sensors will maintain their accuracy up to 6 ds/m.

The Radius LPWAN Network
Each Mote/slave provides a wireless SDI‐12 LPWAN bridge between a sensor and a Radius Gateway (which connects to data logger or uplink) or a Radius Repeater (extends the network even farther).
