Aircom End Node
Aircom End Node
Aircom® End Node is a self-contained, battery-powered communications device capable of collating data from various instruments and sending data packets to a gateway.
It is intrinsically safe and approved for hazardous environments (Class 1 Div 1 / Zone 0).
The state of the art LoRaWAN hardware platform can be used in a wide range of applications.
The Aircom® End Node is highly configuarable with a wide range of I/O to connect up with almost any device in the field. It utilizes LoRaWAN communication to send data securely through AES-128 (bit) encryption.
With its powerful ARM microprocessor it can act as a datalogger, RTU or PLC for monitoring and control applications. It has been designed to withstand harsh environments and transmit data from the asset to any Command Center globally. It’s easy to install and simple to configure with its Mobile Bluetooth App and can be left to operate without the need for human intervention.

Connect I.S. sensors directly to Aircom without the need for third-party I.S. barriers
Operating in explosive atmospheres (ATEX Zone 0 or C1D1) is common in the oil and gas industry and many other hazardous environments, which makes it absolutely critical to ensure equipment in these areas meets the requirements. It is typical for manufacturers to run long wires to their I.S. device from a safe area where a third-party protective barrier is located or place these barriers inside an explosion/flameproof enclosure to be closer to the equipment in the hazardous area. Third party barriers are costly and require additional installation or engineering considerations. A battery-powered solution like Aircom can be pole-mounted in a hazardous area right next to the I.S. sensors, allowing for safe monitoring while simplifying your IIoT deployment.
Secure from End-to-End
Using LoRaWAN AES-128 encryption for secure, long-range data transmission
Aircom uses LoRaWAN® (Long Range Wide Area Network) to wirelessly transmit data from field devices to a secure gateway up to 10+ miles away. LoRaWAN sends data securely (AES-128 encrypted) with no recurring fees (license-free sub-GHz radio frequency) compared to what you’d normally find with a cellular data plan. By deploying gateways to cover your desired areas, LoRaWAN allows you to deploy your own private telemetry network where you own the hardware and data end-to-
Long battery life and digital outputs set it apart from the competition
Aircom edge devices are battery powered with up to a 10-year battery life depending on the application, removing the need to rely on power-heavy cellular networks or run AC power to the device. This allows for simplified installation and increased time between required maintenance. Additionally, Aircom allows for its analog inputs to be configured as digital outputs to power a device, drive solenoid, and more, by using its configurable 10.6-16.5VDC output.
Flexible & Expansive
Simple and modular, Aircom is easy to deploy
Aircom installs easily, lowering upfront capital and installation costs. Its pole and wall-mounted options make it simple to install near the equipment with no trenching required for power or signal cables. Once the Aircom device is online, simply use the app (iOS or Android) to configure the I/O and begin transmitting data. Get the data back to your SCADA or DCS system via Modbus TCP or MQTT options.
Safety and security are top of mind in oil and gas, and that’s why Aircom fits this industry so well. Not only is it built for the most hazardous environments, but its ease of deployment and low cost of operation make it ideal for flexible, integrated industrial asset monitoring and management.
