UPGRADED CALIBRATION AND EXTENDED BANDS

The FiPy multipack bundle features the FiPy, which is the first 5-network development board on the market. It features WiFi, BLE, LoRa, Sigfox and LTE-M. Just like all of our other boards, it is a Micropython-programmable microcontroller that is enterprise grade.

Included in the bundle is a LoRa/Sigfox antenna and a LTE-M antenna. Choose from 1, 2 or 5 Expansion Boards, Pysense 2.0 Xs, Pytrack 2.0 Xs or Pyscans.

Description

New FiPy with upgraded calibration.

**IMPORTANT NOTE: As of December 2019, all our cellular products have been recalibrated and screened on all 17 bands with a vastly improved RF test system to guarantee more stable connectivity, lower power consumption and faster network attachment.
New specialised equipment and software from Rhode & Schwarz enables us to do more precise measurements during the calibration process. This enhances RF sensitivity and thus signal quality especially in areas with poor cellular coverage while reducing output power during transmit to improve battery performance.

The FiPy multipack bundle features the FiPy, which is the first 5-network development board on the market. It features WiFi, BLE, LoRa, Sigfox and LTE-M. Just like all of our other boards, it is a Micropython-programmable microcontroller that is enterprise grade.

This Multipack allows you to get 1, 2 or 5 of GPy and 1, 2 or 5 each of either Expansion Board, Pysense 2.0 X, Pytrack 2.0 X or Pyscan. Included in the bundle is a LoRa/Sigfox antenna and a LTE-M antenna.
