Device or Solution Standard Region Sample Quantity & Date Production Quantity & Date Must-Have Features Notes & Other Details Deadline  
Culvert water level, vegetation level and debris level sensor LoRaWAN US902-928 10 A.S.A.P 100 per month 5-year battery life minimum Determine level of water plus anything that is present in the culvert that should not be there Monday, May 30, 2022 REGISTER
Flow meter for rivers, sewers and culverts LoRaWAN EU868, US915 3 A.S.A.P. 500/yr Must measure water flow rate in open rivers, streams, sewers & culverts. Minimum 5-year battery life. Measurement rate programmable via downlink command. Non-contact measurement method preferred Monday, May 30, 2022 REGISTER
Multi-channel 0-10A DC current measurement with clip-on sensors LoRaWAN EU868, US915 3 A.S.A.P. 2000/yr Ideally looking for 16 channel (for example, 16 current sense clips), although 8 channel will be acceptable. Cable size up to 12mm. **MUST be DC this is NOT an AC application with the regular hall-effect sensors used on AC power cables** Will accept solar-powered device but must have an internal battery for 24/7 operation. Must be programmable reading time and all channels must be read within one or two seconds. The DC currents are expected to be constant for a period of seconds, therefore taking two readings within a short period of time and checking that they are similar prior to uplinking would be helpful.

Sportfield surface monitor LoRaWAN US915   5 Looking for sensors to:
  • Determine the playability of the sports surface- waterlogged, soft, hard, etc.
  • Monitor the length of the grass
  • Report soil conditions for irrigation
This sensor would help to give early warning of unplayable pitches to reduce unnecessary traveling and damage.
Report grass cutting requirements
Monday, May 30, 2022 REGISTER
Exhaust fan failure detector LoRaWAN US915 5 5>1000 Simple detector of fan running/not running in rooftop outdoor unit. Uplink on fan start & stop events (max. every 10 mins) with start/stop counter in uplink.
Minimum 5-year battery target 10 years.
Interested in devices that potentially use vibration and/or airflow as detection method Monday, May 30, 2022 REGISTER
110V switch LoRaWAN US915   5>1000 Two versions:
  • wired version to be inserted into a cable for devices up to 5A
  • wall plug version to provide a switched wall plug outlet for up to 5A
MUST BE UL listed

No battery backup required, powered by the 110v line is okay
