Questions and Answers
Is there any higher power 915 MHz unit, such as 200 mW, 500 mW or 1 W output?
Unfortunately, we do not have anything over 20dBm (100mW), as this is beyond the LoRaWAN specifications limit.
There is no documentation about what pins are used in the Arduino headers. Can you include that schematic?
Please refer to this file:
Do you have a pinout diagram for this RAK811 v1.2 WisNode-Lora module? I am trying to build a end node, incorporating some sensors, using this with an Arduino Mega.
The available diagrams you can find here: https://downloads.rakwireless.com/en/LoRa/WisNode/Hardware-Specification/
Could RAK811 run with Latte Panda than embedded with Arduino co-processor? The program will control by Latte Panda Windows PC. The communication RAK811 and Latte Panda Windows PC is using embedded Arduino Pinout. Thank you.
Theoretically, as long as you can control the input to the RAK811 you should be ok. You can do so with an Arduino module. Not familiar with the Latte Panda in particular but ion general you should be fine. Unfortunately, we have not tested this particular setup so we can not provide guidance at this point.
Hi, In Wisnode V1.1, there is 5_3R and 5_3T pins to short to TXD and RXD when we connect our Wisnode to Arduino board as master. But in V1.2 there is not these pins anymore. Do i have to use a level converter from 5 to 3.3V to connect Wisnode V1.2 to Arduino, or is it not needed?
You do not need a level converter with version 1.2.
Hi, I wanna connect this module with an arduino leonardo. What is the connection for use?
You can refer to the schematic here: https://downloads.rakwireless.com/en/LoRa/WisNode/Hardware-Specification/WisNode_LoRa_SCH_V1.2.pdf There is however a mistake in the file. The P4 and P5 header have been swapped. Please note that where it says P4 in the schematic, it is the P5 on the board. The P5 on the schematic is the P4 on the board. We apologize for the confusion the mistake might cause. If you have more questions, feel free to ask at any time.
Does this board have any sensors on it?
No there are no sensors on board. If you want a board with integrated sensors, that has the same core and functionality suggest you check out these too https://store.rakwireless.com/products/rak5205-lora-tracker https://store.rakwireless.com/products/rak7205-lora-tracker-node
What frequency option should I choose to use the WisNode LoRa Module in Korea ?
You should choose the 923 MHz.

There is new documentation that you can find here. Can I ask which cloud service you want to connect the node to exactly, or is it multiple ones? https://downloads.rakwireless.com/en/LoRa/RAK811/Application_Notes/Get_Start_with_RAK811_WisNode_LoRa.pdf
The manual in the link applies to The Things Network.
