The Zest_Radio_Heracles224G is an electronics development board for 6TRON opensource platform built around the EBV Heracles224G module.

The Heracles224G** module

that combines 4G low power technology and prepaid data package from Orange thanks to an embedded sim. The package can be used over 8 years starting from the delivery date and includes the connectivity in 33 European countries. The data package is available with 50MB or 500MB.

The board provides a PA.26A, 3556mm Wideband LTE SMD Antenna. Moreover, the board embeds an optional nano SIM card Push-Pull Header.

The Zest_Radio_Heracles224 offers 6TRON users a 2G, 4G LTE-M, NB IoT connectivity to devices, systems and sensors communicating with low power over a long distance.
