Sontay Launches SORA

Sontay, a leading provider of Building Management Systems (BMS), has announced the launch of its latest innovation: the SORA range.

The SORA range, or Sontay Open Range Application, is a wireless solution that combines the reliability of Sontay’s trusted sensing devices with the advanced technology of LoRaWAN. This powerful combination offers the reliable solution for wireless sensing in BMS applications and is set to change the way building sensors are selected and installed in the future.

Projects that require fast turnaround, minimal interruption and downtime, or cost-efficient solutions can opt for SORA, which is designed to meet the needs of even the most demanding projects. The SORA range is the ideal solution for a wide range of applications, including offices, schools, hotels, shopping centers, superstores, manufacturing, and data centers.

End users can expect to see vast improvements in ambient conditions and energy- efficiency in a short period of time, with minimal disruption. The name SORA is a combination of the two key fundamentals of the product: “Sontay” for sensing, and “LoRaWAN” for wireless connectivity. In Japanese, SORA means “sky,” perfectly describing the possibilities and capabilities of the range.

Connectivity for the SORA range has been demonstrated to reach distances of over 10 kilometers in plain sight. ojects.

LoRaWAN is a wireless sensor network technology that uses license-free frequencies to transmit information and employs CHIRP Spread Spectrum technology for reliable, low-powered, long-distance communication. With a range of over 10 kilometers in outdoor environments and excellent resilience against attenuation in indoor environments, LoRaWAN is a versatile and reliable choice for a wide range of projects. In addition to its impressive range and coverage, LoRaWAN networks support frequencies from the sub-gigaHertz range as well as 2.4 GHz, allowing for greater bandwidth on higher frequencies.

One of the standout features of SORA is its ability to cover substantial areas and penetrate through materials that would present challenges for other wireless systems. This impressive range is made possible by the advanced wireless capabilities of LoRaWAN.

In addition to its impressive range, SORA is designed with low power consumption in mind. The whole ethos behind LoRaWAN is that it runs on low power, which leads to extraordinary battery longevity in the field. This makes SORA a cost-effective and reliable choice for a wide range of projects.

Security is also a top priority for SORA, with state-of-the-art, dedicated end-to-end encryption designed into the LoRaWAN technology. This ensures that your data is safe and secure at all times.

One of the key ways in which SORA stands out from other wireless sensing networks is its use of LoRaWAN, an open-protocol technology that enables total interoperability with other devices. This means that SORA is more reliable, secure, and has a longer range than legacy systems.

The architecture of LoRaWAN also makes SORA a sensor network rather than just a means of transmitting data from one point to another. This creates a data set that is not limited by manufacturer, building, or geographical constraints, and can be consumed by other applications or accessed via another protocol.

In addition, SORA has a range of APIs that expose data to other relevant systems, such as a REST API, MQTT broker, or BACnet/IP objects. SORA has been developed with a gateway that integrates specifically with BACnet or Modbus protocols, which are commonly used in building control applications.

With its impressive range, low power consumption, and strong security features, SORA is an ideal choice for a wide range of applications, including offices, schools, hotels, shopping centers, superstores, manufacturing, and data centers. Its innovative technology and sensor network architecture make it more reliable, secure, and flexible than legacy systems, making it a valuable asset for any BMS project.
