The Arduino MKR FOX 1200 board provides a practical and cost effective solution to adding Sigfox connectivity to projects requiring low power.

This open source board can be connected to Arduino Create for programming, and to the existing Sigfox infrastructure with it s broad Europe wide coverage for collecting data.

Sigfox infrastructure runs 24/7 without you needing to do anything to maintain it, and you can always check its status here.

The MKR FOX 1200, gives you a great out of the box experience when building IoT projects of any size: from the single sensor monitoring temperature in your home, to an industrial deployment covering the whole of an outdoors factory.

The board's main processor is a low power Arm Cortex M0 32 bit SAMD21, like in the other boards within the Arduino MKR family.

The Sigfox connectivity is performed with a module from Microchip , the Smart RF ATA8520, a low power chipset operating in the 868 MHz range.

No extra crypto chip is needed in this case, since the Sigfox network offers its own end to end security.

These features make it a great IoT node and building block for low power wide area IoT devices within the Sigfox infrastructure.

Sigfox ConnectivityAt Arduino we have made partnered with Sigfox to offer you straightforward way to connect devices to the Cloud with zero investment in infrastructure.

Every MKR FOX 1200 comes with a free one year subscription to Sigfox' data plan, useful for testing the Sigfox network.

Please check the plan s conditions in terms of messages per day at the Sigfox website.

When it comes to coverage, Sigfox covers a large percentage of the European soil.

Check this page at Sigfox website to see whether your planned area of application is covered.

Sigfox Starter ProgramTo ensure a better experience for you, our MKR FOX 1200 user eager to start a new project, Sigfox offers a special program called the Sigfox Starter Program.

Among others it will give you:
  • Access to Sigfox technical platforms backend, build, etc.
  • Access to Sigfox APIs to start playing with real Sigfox data.
  • Access to specialized Sigfox technical content support, the so called learning center.
  • Once you have got your board, apply to the program here.

    Battery PowerIts USB port can be used to supply power 5V to the board.

    It has a screw connector where to attach a 3V battery pack.

    The board consumes so little that it runs on two 1,5V batteries type AA or AAA for a really long time.
