RAK7200 LPWAN Tracker
The RAK7200 is a LPWAN Tracker device with a 3.7V rechargeable Li-Ion battery and a GPS modem. It is built around a low-power LoRa® module, which integrates the ultra-low-power STM32L073 micro-controller, the SX1276 LoRa® long-range modem, and the CXD5603GF GPS modem.
The device can be used as a quick prototyping tool for LoRaWAN® application development. It is suited for IoT applications such as asset tracking, smart vehicle management, and location-based services.

Questions and Answers
RAK7200 LoRa Tracker. Operation temperature Degree Celsius?
Please refer to the link: https://doc.rakwireless.com/datasheet/rakproducts/environmental-requirements--rak7200
RAK7200 has built-in 3.7V rechargeable Li-ion? What is the capacity of rechargeable Li-ion Ah?
The capacity is 2200mAh.
Does this product support connecting to LoRaWAN infrastructure in private mode? (Sync word 0x12)
There is not support for this functionality as of now.
Hi, Can the firmware be edited by the likes of Arduino Ide? Thanks
Arduino IDE is not supported.
Does this device work in Brazil?
Yes, it should work in Brazil. If I am not mistaken you are using AU915 band there, so make sure you select the propeer option when you are selecting it in the shop.
Is there any evaluation/development board of RAK7200 and SDK? So we can write/modify firmware as per our requirement?
There is no scuch board/SDK as of now, for this particular product as it was originally intended to work out of the box as a GPS tracker.
Is there a way to access the complete list of LoRa modem AT commands? I need the LoRa network signal strength RSSI, SNR, etc. at the device level. I see we have a limited AT command exposure. I am looking for a little more information directly tapping into the LoRa module (AT command issued from serial port from my PC where the device is connected over USB).
Those are the available commands for now: https://doc.rakwireless.com/rak7200-lora-tracker/configuring-the-rak7200-lora-tracker-using-at-commands
If you require anything more in-depth perhaps make an enquire in the forums: http://forum.rakwireless.com
Hi, I would like to ask about Lora Tracker Battery specification such as Battery run time and Battery capacity. And Can we set ourselves the GPS information interval time like transmission frequency
Please refer to the document for setting the transmission interval frequency. https://doc.rakwireless.com/rak7200-lora-tracker/configuring-the-rak7200-lora-tracker-using-at-commands
The battery is 2200mAh. The runtime would depend on the aforementioned frequency and sleep cycling, so I can not state a number there.
I followed the instruction as in "Get_Start_with_RAK7200_Tracker_Device.pdf" and downloaded "RUI_RAK7200_S76G_BOOT.bin" assuming this will boot the RAK7200 with latest firmware. Now, I do not see any LED is ON. I am not able to see anything with serial port as well. 13:20:50 : Read File: C:Users....RAK7200FirmwareRUI_RAK7200_S76G_BOOT.bin 13:20:50 : Number of segments: 1 13:20:50 : segment: address= 0x0, size= 0x282C 13:20:53 : Memory Programming ... 13:20:53 : Opening and parsing file: RUI_RAK7200_S76G_BOOT.bin 13:20:53 : File : RUI_RAK7200_S76G_BOOT.bin 13:20:53 : Size : 10284 Bytes 13:20:53 : Address : 0x08000000 13:20:53 : Erasing memory corresponding to segment 0: 13:20:53 : Erasing internal memory sectors [0 80] 13:20:53 : Download in Progress: 13:20:55 : File download complete 13:20:55 : Time elapsed during download operation: 00:00:02.146 Can you please suggest?
Really sorry it took so long to reply. I suggest you follow the link for the correct manual on how to start with your RAK7200. The document you are referring to is outdated. https://doc.rakwireless.com/rak7200-lora-tracker
Can it send only when there is motion detected with the out-of-the-box firmware?
No this is not a part of the functionality at this time. Will eventually be in the future.
hi, GPS has incorrect values. difference from actual location is 400 meters
Please refer to the forums for a possible solution.
Hi, how is the 9-axis sensor data compressed before sent to gateway? Or do you send the instantaneous 9-axis sensor reading?
Please ask at the forum. I am not competent enough, unfortunately, to answer this.
What is your timeline for the EU433MHz version? When is it expected for market?
Unfortunatelly, we expect to release it within two months. Apologies, this is quite long, however, there are hardware and firmware design changes needed in order for it to work in the lower bands.
DO you have EU433MHz for this device
No, we only support the high bands of LoRa for now. Working on the Low ones.
What is power usage in sleep mode? Also what is the usage in active mode?
We are currently working on an updated firmware that will implement an ultra-low-power mode. This will hopefully be completed by the end of the moth. We shall publish some numbers as soon as possible. Please be patient with us.
Is the GPS etc powered by the uC? Also is any documentation available on downlink configuration?
The GPS is integrated into the AcSIP S76G itself. The sensors have separate circuitry that powers them. What do you mean by documentation on downlink configuration? What exactly is it that you want to achieve?
What is the size of the battery in mAH please?
Apologies for the late reply. The battery is 2200 mAh.
