Sixfab NB-IoT EVB. with Ultrasonic Sensor

Sixfab NB-IoT is another member of our Nb-IoT Shield family. This can be connected either with USB or you may also use any micro controller(Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Orange Pi etc. ). For this tutorial we are going to use Raspberry Pi. Here we will be sending data obtained by our Raspberry Pi from Ultrasonic Waterproof Range Finder(JSN-SR04T-2.0) and send this data over UDP.

Before you get started make sure you have done your router configuration as mentioned in previous tutorial step 1-10.

External Sensor with Sixfab Arduino NB-IoT Shield

It is obvious that a single shield is never enough to design a project. You will definitely like to integrate different sensors in your NB-IoT projects. This is the reason we came up here with this tutorial. In this tutorial of Sixfab Arduino NB-IoT Shield, we are going to observe data from JSN-SR04T-2.0 Ultrasonic Waterproof Range finder, which can measure 20cm-600cm of distance.

Measuring Lux with Sixfab Arduino NB-IoT Shield

We are back again with another tutorial on Sixfab Arduino NB-IoT Shield. Previously we have learned how to connect the shield with local server and sent a string value. In this tutorial we are going to learn how we can access the sensor values of the built-in sensors of the shield and send them over local server. To keep it easy we are going to access single sensor which will be ambient light sensor(ALS-PT19). Read More

Getting Started with SIXFAB Arduino NB-IoT Shield

Sixfab Arduino NB-IoT shield is a Narrow-Band IoT(LTE CAT-NB1) shield for Arduino, based on Quectel’s BC95 module. NB-IoT is a Low Power Wide Area(LPWA) technology that is the latest cellular network option for low power connected projects.

This shield has been designed with built-in temperature, humidity, light sensors, 3-axis accelerometer, relay, micro sim card slot and a built-in antenna. If there is a need for long-range, better signal quality, a U.FL antenna receptacle is placed, can be selected over RF Switch by the short-headers easily. Read More
