Introducing RAM-1

For Izoelektro, a Slovenian company providing products intended for maintenance, renewal and set up of electro-energy systems, we are developing RAM-1, a cellular IoT- and BLE-powered remote monitoring device, allowing power grid operators to remotely monitor smart power grids and thus take immediate action in cases of failures.

To provide RAM-1 with wireless connectivity, we have selected Nordic Semiconductor’s nRF9160 low power SiP with integrated LTE-M/NB-IoT modem and GPS, in combination with the nRF52811 Bluetooth® Low Energy (Bluetooth LE, BLE) multiprotocol System-on-Chip (SoC).

As the nRF Connect SDK offers support for the Zephyr RTOS ecosystem, and we are aiming at creating a robust end-to-end solution, the nRF9160 was a logical pick.

Read more about the exciting news in Nordic Semiconductor’s post, and stay tuned for more details in the near future!

We are applying today’s knowledge to create systems for an open future.
