The DD601 will be a revolutionary first  in remote technology and monitoring capabilities. This remote self powered modem will work alongside the DD450 model once release to achieve even higher results than the  current findings. 

The DD601 connects the ULP-Meshed Sensor/Actuator Network via its cellular interface to the internet.


The DD601 features a fully autonomous operation even in harsh environments due to its sophisticated energy harvesting and power management.


The DD601 is equipped with operational sensors and local environmental sensors. It senses the solar panel voltage and current, and the battery voltage and charge. In addition, it measures the local light conditions, the ambient temperature, and the barometric air pressure. 



The DD601 Gateway communicates once
per second with all connected sensors and actuators within the wireless network via the ULP interface. The sensor information is collected, processed, and stored in the gateway. There are two data-stores included in the gateway, the built-in serial flash and a Micro- SD flash card.




At a predefined time-interval (typically every 15 to 60 minutes), the gateway connects via the cellular modem to the internet and the host server to upload its latest sensor data.




When the gateway is connected by the server, the server may initiate a download process; e g., to reconfigure the gateway, the connected actuators and sensors, and the network operation.

The DD450s can operate without the gateway to provide the benefit of instantaneous site activation without the gateway or in remote areas with no data service.

The Technical Structure of the DD601 with the solar and the main


• ULP-Meshed Network Interface


Connects to all iPTE ULP-Sensors (DD450, DD5xx-Family). Up to 100 Sensor-Nodes may be connected to one single Gateway. The ULP interface uses the license-free 868 MHz (Europe) or 915 MHz (Americas) ISM-frequency band. It complies with the applicable ETSI and FCC regulations.


• Cellular Network Interface


The Cellular Network Interface is powered by the Telit GL865- QUAD Modem. The Telit GL865-QUAD features GSM/GPRS protocol stack 3GPP (release 4 compliant) and supports GSM/ GPRS 850/900/1800/1900 MHz Quad-band frequency. Additional features are integrated TCP/IP protocol stack (including UDP, SMTP, ICMP and FTP).




Powered by the Maestro Wireless Solutions module A2035-H. The GNSS features Ultra-Low-Power consumption, bench marking sensitivity (-163 dBm tracking), in-band jamming signal removal, and precision timing.

Showing the Deployment Set up from the Server-Host to the mobile device






The iPTE ULP-Network consists of net-nodes (e.g. DeerDeter DD450s), which establish a selfconfiguring energy optimized communication network by introducing Net-Node and Net-Routers roles. 




Deployment Setup


The ULP-Network consists of net nodes (e.g. DeerDeter DD450s), which establish a selfconfiguring energy optimized communication network by introducing Net- Node and Net-Routers roles.





- Mount the DeerDeter units in a safe distance from the roadside.

- The distance of the DD601 to the DeerDeter network should be

100m (328 ft) or less.




- Mount the DD601 on a stable post in a vertical direction, with the solar panel orientation southward.


Warning: Take care to mount the device TOP upwards, otherwise the device does not have a proper rain protection and may be damaged!

Remote Access


The DeerDeter network can be accessed via the DD601 Gateway, which uploads the status and information of all sensors in the network at a predefined time-interval to the host server. The host server may be built decentralized upon a SQL platform or may reside on the internet. The data can be requested and accessed from the SQL server by a mobile application.


Compliance: (CE)


The DD601 Family complies with all applicable European and US laws regarding safety, EMV, and protection of the environment.
