- Supports Third-party Data Loggers and IoT Platforms: Besides SenseCAP Data Logger, developers could connect to other data loggers that support MODBUS RS485 protocol and third-party IoT platforms.
- Ready-to-deploy Industrial-grade Outdoor Enclosure: IP66 waterproof rate outdoor enclosure with window and waterproof ventilation hole reserved for light and gas sensors, also comes with a customized mounting panel, suitable for pole and wall installation.
- Powered by Seeed Studio XIAO RP2040: Take advantage of the powerful Seeed Studio XIAO RP2040 dual-core ARM M0+ processor and vast open-source resources to customize your own sensor. Easily upload code via USB-C port.
SenseCAP S2110 Grove to MODBUS RS485 Converter has Seeed Studio XIAO RP2040 as the dual-core ARM Cortex M0+ processor, and has one Grove and one RS485 connector, enabling developers to connect with 500+ Grove sensors and various MODBUS RS485 sensors to develop custom industrial-grade MODBUS RS485 sensors for various IoT applications.
For the LoRaWAN application, developers could easily connect it with a SenseCAP LoRaWAN Data Logger(*Grove sensors and data logger are not included in the product, learn more on the bundle kit here) to transfer the data to SenseCAP Cloud, which only takes a 5-minute simple BLE configuration in SenseCAP Mate App. Clear data results and further analysis could be easily obtained from SenseCAP Dashboard and SenseCAP Mate App. IoT platforms such as Helium, TTN, LORIOT, etc. are also supported.
The product comes with an IP66 industrial-grade enclosure, mounting pads, and screws set, which enables you to deploy the sensor outdoors easily and safely.
Assemble a Ready-to-deploy SenseCAP outdoor LoRaWAN sensor
Assemble the SenseCAP S2110 with one of the six Grove sensors supported in the native firmware, and connect to a SenseCAP Data Logger via RS-485, then you will have a ready-to-deploy SenseCAP outdoor LoRaWAN sensor. (Check the guidance)
Customize an industrial-grade MODBUS RS485 LoRaWAN sensor
Assemble a Grove sensor or a MODBUS RS485 sensor to the SenseCAP S2110 Grove to MODBUS RS485 Converter to get an industrial-grade MODBUS RS485 sensor. And developers could:
- Develop a customized SenseCAP outdoor LoRaWAN sensor. Develop the customized firmware and connect it to the SenseCAP Data Logger to get a SenseCAP Outdoor LoRaWAN Sensor for special applications. (Check the guidance)
- Develop a customized sensor for a third-party IoT platform. Develop the customized firmware and connect it to a third-party data logger that enables data transmission to the IoT platform.
Build a sensor prototype and read sensor data through the serial monitor
Choose a Grove sensor or a MODBUS RS485 sensor to connect to the SenseCAP S2110 Grove to MODBUS RS485 Converter, obtain sensor data and test the sensor through the serial monitor while connected via USB. (Check the guidance)
SenseCAP S2110 Grove to MODBUS RS485 Converter builds the bridge between Grove and industrial-grade Sensor. It makes up for the defects of insufficient sensor types and the high cost of existing industrial-grade IoT sensors. It enables developers to build their own MODBUS RS485 sensors according to a specific IoT application. It also builds the hardware bridge for developers to quickly connect the Grove sensors to the SenseCAP Cloud and build IoT applications at a low cost.

About "IoT into the Wild"
The theme of Seeed's new product launch in 2022 is "IoT into the Wild". Check low-power sensors to ultra-long-range gateways fully featuring Edge AI and LoRaWAN.
【About SenseCAP】Among the first launch of the Seeed industrial IoT (IIoT) product series, SenseCAP focuses on wireless environmental sensing applications: smart agriculture, precision farming, and smart city, to name a few. It consists of hardware products (sensors, data loggers & gateways, etc.), software services (SenseCAP portal, mobile App, open dashboard), and an API for device & data management.
1. Is the LoRaWAN network coverage necessary when using the SenseCAP S2110?
If you want to build a LoRaWAN sensor with SenseCAP S2110, ideally, yes. LoRaWAN enables your solutions with ultra-low power consumption and wide-range transmission. When connecting with the SenseCAP S2100 Data Logger, this device can be connected to the local LoRaWAN network if there's network coverage nearby. Also, you can manage to a build LoRaWAN network on your own by deploying LoRaWAN gateways. (Check SenseCAP LoRaWAN gateways)
2. What APP can be used when binding the SenseCAP S2110 and managing the device?
The SenseCAP Mate can be used to bind the gateway to the SenseCAP Cloud and manage the device. It is a powerful tool for the usage of the SenseCAP S2110 Grove to MODBUS RS485 Converter. You can download the APP here: 1. iOS; 2. Google Play; 3. App Center
