Size-Optimized LTE Cat M1/NB1 Modules: SARA-R4 Series

The SARA-R4 Series from u-blox comprises the world’s smallest LTE Cat M1/NB1 multi-mode modules offered in a single hardware design. The R410M-02B single hardware version simplifies diverse deployments worldwide, and offers enormous operational efficiencies in logistics and SKU management that are deployed in all bands for global coverage. These modules are hardware ready for future support of voice functionality via VoLTE over Cat M1, which can be used for applications requiring a level of human interaction, as is the case for security applications.

The R410M-02B is available in a surface mount package measuring 16 x 26 x 2.5 mm, and provides and extended operating temperature range of -40 - +85°C. Critical firmware updates can be delivered with the u-blox proprietary uFOTA client/server solution. Ideal applications for these models include gas/water/electricity metering, street lighting, building automation, HVAC, telematics, insurance, asset and vehicle tracking, security systems, alarm panels, outpatient monitoring, and many consumer wearables.
