RDR Firmware Changelog

All notable changes to the RD Firmware will be documented in this file.

The format is based on Keep a Changelog, and this project adheres to Semantic Versioning.

Versions marked YANKED have critical bugs that affect stable operation. We recommend an update at the next opportunity.

[1.4.7] - 2022-04-30

Fixed a problem where hearbeat uplink have not been sent in unconfirmed uplink mode.

[1.4.6] - 2022-04-11

Separated reading unit from the LoRaWAN®for better responsiveness. Improved communication with device over USB.

[1.4.5] - 2022-03-10

Increased reading rate

[1.4.4] - 2021-11-23

This version corrects a problem where NFC reader has been blocked during LoRaWAN®Uplink

[1.4.3] - 2021-10-15

This version corrects a small problem where hearbeats has occassionally sent multiple times.

[1.4.2] - 2021-09-03

This version corrects a problem with battery powered devices. Some devices did not properly detect the USB disconnect event so the battery powered mode was not enabled. This was leading to a very short battery life.

We let the device beep when there is an LoRaWAN®error. This helps the user solve LoRaWAN®issues before the battery gets empty.

[1.4.1] - 2021-08-16

This bugfix release corrects a problem with battery powered devices. It has been observed that sometimes the device does not turn off to save power, which may result in a shortened battery life.


  • USB cable removal detection rewritten


  • nothing

[1.4.0] - 2021-06-02 [YANKED]

Please update to V1.4.1 as we found out some RDR do not power down to save energy when running on batteries.
