The Lobaro box(es)

We refer to our self-developed and produced hardware components as Lobaro box(es).

We distinguish between sensor boxes and gateway boxes. The sensors required for the project or the machines to be controlled are adapted to the (sensor) Lobaro box. Several boxes can communicate with each other bidirectionally via radio in an energy-efficient way (6LoWPAN resp. 802.15.4 or LoRa), even if both communication partners are not in direct radio range. In this case, intermediate nodes (i.e. other Lobaro boxes) automatically forward the messages, which automatically form a so called "radio link". Mesh network  form

In addition, we have customizable gateways for the onward transport of locally collected sensor data into the Lobaro Backendwhich is installed locally on a computer or runs on a server on the Internet. Our gateways use a suitable transport technology depending on availability, this can be e.g. mobile radio (GPRS, LTE, SMS), LoRaWAN but also an already existing Internet connection (LAN, WLAN).

Our Lobaro boxes are always installed in industrial enclosures (IP65+) and in addition, the electronics can be encapsulated in epoxy resin for protection against environmental influences.


The origins of Lobaro lie in an engineering office for customized electronics for well-known industrial customers from PCB design to the support of serial production. We can therefore draw on a wide range & many years of practical experience in the field of modern electronics and embedded firmware development. We offer expertise in the areas of Electronics development incl. PCB layout, embedded firmware, housing technology, CNC milling technology, 3D printing, series productions and certifications (e.g. CE).

Together with Lobaro, we accompany you in the design of sensors and innovative measurement/control methods from the pure idea to series production. In doing so, we always keep an eye on the entire IoT system and ensure smooth interaction with our Lobaro Backend and Lobaro dashboard building blocks for sure.
