Sensor Test Tutorial for Sixfab Arduino Cellular IoT Application Shield

Sixfab has came up with Arduino Cellular IoT shield that have combined LTE technilogies Cat.M1, Cat.NB1(NB-IoT) and eGPRS, which is based on Quectel BG96 module. It also have built-it sensors, LED and relay. Sixfab also has a RPi Cellular IoT Application HAT.

Sixfab is also providing library to use the shield. To keep the it easy we will be showing how to install the library and access the sensor data in our first tutorial.  Read More

Observing External Sensor data 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
