Remote Autonomous Zone Monitoring
The RAZN monitors Sensors to Monitor in remote areas to control thing. Use wireless links to monitor over long ranges.
SCADA apps can monitor and control as you want, and the RAZN can also autonomously safely control some things as you want also.
Humidity and moisture control
Monitor moisture in the air, in the soil, and inside the plants to remotely determine how often the plants need to be watered and how much water is required.
And the RAZN can also Autonomously control moisture the way you want.
Prevent stress and overwatering
Monitoring the soil moisture helps growers learn what conditions are best for crop production.
Remotely detect plant stress before the signs are visible, which can increase growth, yields and crop quality.
Monitor for high and low temperatures
By monitoring moisture, growers can use remote monitoring systems to monitor for high and low temperatures.
Positioning sensors in growing areas, and setting minimum and maximum temperatures, can alert you to potential issues like power outages and HVAC problems before they impact plants.
Instant Notification of Threats
Remote wireless monitoring system can detect issues such as:
unexpected temperature changes, humidity fluctuations, power outages, low CO2, unauthorized access, incorrect water pH and improper soil moisture.
The RAZN sends an instant notification via MODBUS, text message or alert outputs (lights, sirens, beepers,..) when conditions fall outside of your preset range.

It has autonomous operation and low cost, the system has the potential to be useful in isolated areas of water-limited geographically isolated areas.
RAZN can remotely control and monitor lights, pumps, valves, alarms, doors, AC power, DC power, relays, solid state relays, or almost whatever you would like to control.
The Programmable Logic Control (PLC) feature in the RAZN is a flexible and easy way to remotely control a peripheral.
Robust, Reliable and Protected
The IO pins have great electrostatic discharge (ESD) and over-voltage protection. DC power input is reverse and over-voltage protected.
Internal smart CPU has watchdog timer, data stored in EEPROM, and battery powered clock.
Long-range communications uses wireless instead long copper that will fail.
Remote Social Distancing
RAZN’s Autonomous Wireless Man-Machine interface and remote controllers helps promote social distancing (due to Covid-19).
Buttons remotely control things, and LEDs and GUIs show the status of things without being near them.
Unique and Secure Systems
Every system has a unique system ID that is secure.
No other RAZN or device can communicate or control your system unless it has your unique system ID.
High Performance Interfaces
Ethernet, RS-485, USB, and many RF options. RAZN wireless links are super long-range communication. 1/2W to 5W UHF, VHF; 50mW-1W ISM LoRa. Verify operation and quality of connection in the field from 1 to 50 miles. The RAZN can also communicate with Raveon’s data radio modems (RV-M6, RV-M8, RV-M7, RV-M9 …)
The RAZN has power LED and Communication LED to show that these are working. The master has LEDs to show the status of the remote RAZN, and the remote RAZN with SV outputs has LEDs to show its output status.
Real Time Clock (RTC)
The battery backed up internal RTC is accurate and keeps track of all time, milliseconds, seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years.
It can be used to trigger events, and also time events and stop them when the time is over.
Timer events can turn things on or off based upon any time status you prefer.
A Myriad of Ways to Use This
Point-to-Point: The two RAZNs can work together by themselves and control what you want in isolated areas.
You can use 2-200 of these RAZNs to do what you need to control in isolated areas.
We offer more features, good performance, and a reliable product at an exceptional price.
Use a remote master controller PC, GUI, IoT server, or MODBUS master to communicate with the RAZN and control your things in isolated areas.
Some RAZNs have sensor inputs, so sensors placed in the root zone of the plants to remotely control irrigation.
Timers and Real Time Clocks
All RAZNs have a Timer Operations Actions Alerts (TOAA) feature to use its timers to do what you want and when you want to have it done.
Button inputs can trigger timers to turn remote things on or off for specific time periods.
This automated peripheral RAZN is patented with TOAA and a myriad of features. This is a complete solution to remotely control things
RV-N55-3 Terminal Ports

The RV-N55-3A switched voltage terminal ports are turned on/off by the 3B. the Buttons on the 3B can control the 3A terminals to turn on off things like lights, valves, pumps, or whatever.
The RAZN has a timer in it to automatically do what you want, and the buttons can be setup to turn on a terminal port of the 3A of xx amount of seconds, minutes or hours.
RV-N55-3E & RV-N55-3C
The RV-N55-3B connect to a PC Controller, tablet, or server to control the RV-N54-3A terminal ports in a remote area.
The RV-N55 has an Ethernet interface on it to connect to your controller. Or it can connect to your network. The RV-N55-3 can work with SCADA software that use MODBUS messages.
The Buttons on the 3B can also be used to turn on/off the remote peripheral 3A terminal ports.
Raveon’s RV-M55-E Ethernet Data Radio interface can connect to your network and communicate wirelessly.
Your Controller via Ethernet will communicate to the remote RV-N55-3A to control up to 8 things.
RV-M55-E Ethernet radio connects to servers or IoT, to remote control the RAZN without buttons.
The Controller can also monitor the state of the 3A remote device to see when outputs are on or off.
Wirelessly a controller can also communicate to thousands of RAZN devices over hundreds of square miles.
RV-N55-3B & RV-N55-3C with Controller
The RV-N55-3H has buttons on top of enclosure, to remotely control the RV-N55-3A terminal ports that switch things on and off.
The Buttons on the 3H can also be used to turn on/off the remote peripheral 3A terminal ports.
8 Buttons can control any 8 SV switch voltage outputs on 1 or up to 8 RAZNs in remote areas. So a RV-N55-3H can control up to 8 different areas.
Multiple Remote Peripherals
In many different remote areas that you need to control or monitor something in,
one RAZN such as the RV-N55-3H with buttons can send control messages to remote RAZNs and monitor many other RAZNs.
As this diagram shows, those 8 buttons or 32 GUI buttons at the controller can turn on or off the ports on the RV-N55-2B Peripherals.
And when the ports on the remote peripherals change on or off, the status of them are displayed on the LEDs in the controller or the GUI if a GUI is connected to the controller.
These long-range wireless links will let you control many things in many remote areas.
The RAZN technology easily lets a controller like the RV-N55-3H control dozens or even hudreds of different remote autonomous zone nodes like the RV-n55-3b, -3G or any other one.
This system work over very wide areas. Easy to push buttons to control many things in remote areas.
The Programmable Logic Control (PLC) feature in the RAZN is a flexible and easy way to remotely control things.
The PLCL configuration command can be used to setup input pins to do whatever you want. For example, pins can be setup to:
- Press pin 1 to turn on output 1 on a remote RAZN. Press pin 2 to turn on/off output 2 on/off a remote RAZN.
- Setup a Pin to only turn OFF something. Of configure the pin to only turn ON something.
- And pins can be configured to only turn ON, or only OFF, or turn OFF and ON, or turn ON and OFF. polarity and logic are configurable.
- And a pin can be assigned to turn 1,2,3, or even up to 16 things On or off with that one pin.
- And multi-pin logic can be setup, so if 1 input is on, nothing happens, but if 3 inputs go in, then one remote thing turns ON, or OFF, or whatever you want.
Remotely Monitor Many Digital Inputs (Spot: Doors Open/Close)
This N55-3 BI Button Inputs can monitor switches on DOORs, POWER, TRIGGERS, WATER, NOISE, and SENSOR switches (Or anything else).
