Inventia MT-058 cellular IoT telemetry module is powered by Nordic Semi nRF9160 SiP

A few days back, Inventia introduced the MT-058 cellular IoT telemetry module built around Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF9160 System in Package (SiP) module with support for LTE-M/NB-IoT connectivity with GNSS. The device is designed for low-power, battery-operated industrial applications such as water metering and environmental monitoring.

The module is IP68-rated and offers a combination of digital and analog inputs. It also comes with a battery that can last up to 5 years and there is also support for external sensor attachment for data logging applications.

As we mentioned earlier the device has five binary inputs that can be configured as counter inputs, counting pulses with a frequency of up to 250 Hz, perfect for reading water and flow meters. These inputs can also be configured as alarm inputs to trigger alarms, like if a cabinet door opens. The device has one analog input which can be used to measure temperature and humidity if required.

On the software side of things, the module utilizes Nordic’s nRF Connect SDK, providing developers with pre-certified, precompiled downloads for rapid application development, and connects to the IoT platform that offers a cloud-based SCADA solution for data visualization and analysis, along with alarm notifications. sample system sample system

In our previous posts, we have seen the nRF9160 (part of the nRF91 series) used in various projects like the Actinius Icarus SoM DKConexio Stratus, nRF9160 Feather LTE IoT and GPS Board,  Ruuvi Node, and others. Feel free to check those out if interested.

At the time of writing the company has not revealed any pricing information. You can find more information about the device on inventia’s products page or in Nordic’s press release.
