Meet the PyGo2 which is in essence a FiPy module on steroids! We packed the FiPy in an IP67 case, gave it an OLED (Piezo touch screen sensing), a GPS, an accelerometer, some state of the art antennas, a LiPo battery and a QI wireless charging solution. The PyGo2 features six exposed pins: 2 for power and 4 universal inputs/outputs with digital/analogue capabilities so that you can connect different types of sensors and actuators. Developers can physically connect Things and sensors to a PyGo! And yes, before you ask, rest assured, we will be adding electrical circuit protection to ensure PyGo can have a bath and still retain its cool IP67 protection.

Best of all, the PyGo modules are fully programmable using existing Pycom IDE such as Pymakr and can link up with any other Pycom modules. We launched the PyGo modules with the ability to mesh together at distance of up to 12KM. PyGo2 includes WiFi, Bluetooth, LoRa, Sigfox and dual LTE-M (embedded SIM for CAT M1 and NB IoT) the PyGo2 gives access to all the world’s LPWAN networks on one tiny board.

The PyGo2 includes 1-year of Sigfox connectivity.

If you are purchasing the PyGo2 and wish to connect via USB to your computer, you will also need to purchase either the PyGo cradle.
