MultiTech mDot Box (Field Testing Device)


The MultiConnect® mDotTM Box has been designed to help companies quickly determine if LoRa® is the right technology to solve key industrial IoT issues: how to effectively connect to, and manage, thousands of assets and sensors in the field to meet the cost, performance and strategic needs of the business. The mDot Box, which includes a MultiConnect® mDotTM RF module and a micro developer kit, utilizes the LoRa long range, long distance, RF spread spectrum technology by Semtech®, to create a solution that overcomes the most difficult challenges in this area:

  • Distance and obstruction penetration: Incredible asset management range with LoRa – up to 10 miles/15 km line of sight, 1-3 miles/2 km through buildings
  • Low Cost – Free bi-directional communications from thousands of mDots to a single Conduit utilizing LoRa unlicensed ISM band spectrum
  • Extended Life – LoRa’s extremely low power draw enables battery-powered assets to operate for years
