    I'm working on an agricultural application where we will be installing several hundred sensors throughout a farm field to monitor crop quality.  What should I prepare for in using these sensors outdoors long term?

    Hi Mech1,

    Our development kits are intended for indoor use.  We do encourage customers to design their own PCB's using our MeshWorks modules and our development kits as a starting point.  To use this products outside you will want to look into weather proof housings with an external antenna or plastic housing that uses our internal antenna.  Please have a look at our antenna guidelines for our ZICM35xSPx mini-modules.

    Regards,
