Utility Pole Tilt Monitor

  • Connectivity: LoRa
  • MCU: Arm Cortex M3 @ 32MHz
  • Memory: 256KB Flash, 256KB RAM
  • Silicon vendor: STMicroelectronics
Sector: Utilities

EkkoSense mast technology helps predict which utility poles require maintenance before they cause a hazard or power failure. It relays data gathered by a variety of motion sensors measuring, for instance, pole tilt and vibration. These devices are self-powered, maintenance free, with a lifetime of 10+ years.

  • Low-powered connectivity support, ideal for devices in challenging remote locations
  • Prolonged device lifetime reduces operational costs
  • Operates during extremely low temperatures -30°C (-22°F)
  • Specification:
  • LoRa collection gateways reduce deployment costs
  • Combined battery and solar cells ensure continuous operation during the Scottish winter
  • Based on Multitech xDot module
  • Runs on Mbed OS

  • More info about the project can be found at the Energy Innovation Centre and Ekkosense website

    To replicate these benefits on your next IoT product, head to our quick start guide and get connected in under 5 minutes.
