Kontron TRACe LoRa-MQTT is an EN50155-certified fanless LoRa™ to MQTT IoT gateway.

The Kontron TRACe LoRa-MQTT is a solution ready platform offering LoRaWAN™ local network and transforming messages to MQTT streams.

It embeds a low power wide area network (LPWAN) LoRa radio concentrator that can sustain eight communication channels simultaneously and Ethernet connectivity from one of the 2x GbE front M12 X-Coded connector.

Cloud connection is based on standard IP Ethernet. It automatically transforms LoRaWAN™ messages to a secure MQTT stream that can be ‘pushed’ on the Cloud. The connection to the cloud server is secured by TLS connection using private keys used on both sides. Based on a yearly fee model, a Cloud server accessible on a public URL can host the connectivity and data collection from the TRACe Gateways.

In addition, TRACe LoRa-MQTT includes a unique health management unit, performing system vital monitoring, thanks to multiple sensors. An integrated microcontroller, independent from the main processor, monitors several temperature sensors, controls supply voltages and current, and vital product data traceability of major TRACe components.

This health management unit is fully integrated with the CMON line-monitoring solution by Kontron offering a turnkey, extensible and data-centric solution for local or remote computer health monitoring. CMON line-monitoring module covers all the vital resources of TRACe to report, log, and transmit any health management information or event.

All data are accessible either locally, from ethernet / intranet or from internet / Cloud, and offer an ideal support to data analytics, especially to support asset management, preventive maintenance and fleet management
