The LORA-PULSE counts the pulses output by the IWM-PL3 or IWM-PL4. The corresponding water volume depends on the set “Pulse ratio X”-value in the IWM-PL3 or IWM-PL4, which in turn depends on the type of water meter used. To get the LORA-PULSE to report water volume in liter it is required to set the IWM Pulse Ratio to the same value as Pulse Ratio X in the IWM-PL3 or IWM-PL4.
The LoRaWAN module LORA-PULSE is designed to work in combination together any brand size and version of water meters equipped with pulse output and especially with pulse output module B METERS’ IWM-PL3 and IWM-PL4. That allows the transmission of data and alarms recorded by the meters through a LoRaWAN network in all the cases where the integrated module cannot be used or where it’s required to turn away the module from the meter.
The LORA-PULSE Industrial communication and control unit is designed with focus on ease-of-use and reliable
operation in LoRaWAN networks. The product is dedicated to be used together with BMeters’ IWM sensor. Normal users will only need to read the 5-step guide at the beginning of this manual.
