Omega2 LTE Guide & Just 7 Days To Go!

We can hardly believe there’s only 7 days left to go until the end of the campaign! We want to thank everyone for supporting the Omega2 LTE. Make sure to tell all your friends that may be interested!

The Omega2 LTE Guide

With the end of the campaign in sight, we’ve published a guide for the Omega2 LTE! The guide is meant to help you get your Omega2 LTE up and running as quickly as possible, and then offer guidance on using the Omega2 LTE to bring your cellular IoT projects to life. It covers:

  • First time setup through the browser-based setup wizard
  • First time setup for the cellular connection
  • Controlling the cellular connection
  • Sharing the cellular data connection through WiFi
  • Using GNSS positioning
  • And more!

Read the full guide and learn more on the Onion site.

An all-in-one starter antenna that's good for use worldwide. The antenna sports two LTE antennas for better indoor reception and a GNSS antenna that's good for use outdoors.


$49

Pro Antenna Kit

Get the best reception for your IoT project with the Pro Antenna Kit. Features two suction-mount LTE antennas, a magnetic mount GNSS antenna, and three SMA to U.FL adapters for easy connection to the Omega2 LTE.


$145

Omega2 LTE Essentials Collection

1x Omega2 LTE, 1x Ethernet Expansion, 1x ADC Expansion, 1x 3-in-1 Flex Antenna


$245

Omega2 LTE Ultimate Collection

1x Omega2 LTE, 1x Ethernet Expansion, 1x OLED Expansion, 1x Servo Expansion, 1x ADC Expansion, 1x NFC Expansion, 1x Proto Expansion, 1x 3-in-1 Flex Antenna, 1x Pro Antenna Kit


$15

OLED Expansion

From the Onion Omega2 Pro project.

An OLED Expansion board for your Omega2 LTE

The OLED Expansion adds a low-power 0.96″ monochrome display to your Omega. With a resolution of 128×64, you can use it to display text, images, and even animations. Very useful for displaying status information, web data, and small logos.


$15

Ethernet Expansion

From the Onion Omega2 Pro project.

An Ethernet Expansion board for your Omega2 LTE

The Ethernet Expansion adds an Ethernet port to your Omega with a maximum connection speed of 100Mbps. While the Omega is all about wireless connectivity, a reliable wired network connection can be a great addition to a project, and the Ethernet Expansion is a great tool for quickly reflashing your Omega’s firmware.


$20

NFC/RFID Expansion

From the Onion Omega2 Pro project.

A NFC/RFID Expansion board for your Omega2 LTE

Bring contact-less RFID and NFC communication to your Omega2. It supports reading and writing with several NFC and RFID protocols at 13.56 MHz. Comes bundled with two programmable Mifare Ultralight tags.


$15

ADC Expansion

From the Onion Omega2 Pro project.

An ADC Expansion board for your Omega2 LTE

Omega2 can now read all types of analog voltages and sensors with the help of this ADC Expansion. Read and interpret up to 4 analog voltage or sensor inputs, each with 16 bits of precision.


$5

Proto Expansion

From the Onion Omega2 Pro project.

A Proto Expansion board for your Omega2 LTE

The Proto Expansion for the Onion Omega allows you to create your very own expansion that interfaces with your Omega. It provides a small soldering area and 30-pin header that plugs into the Expansion Dock. With it you will have full control over what kind of project you design for your Omega.


$15

Servo Expansion

From the Onion Omega2 Pro project.

A Servo Expansion board for your Omega2 LTE

The Servo Expansion adds 16 PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) outputs to your Omega. Connect standard servos directly to the Expansion since each channel has its own 3-pin connectors, making it that much easier to get started with your project! This Expansion is great in any application that requires servos, like a robotics project or anything with moving parts. Given that PWM is so useful, you can also use this Expansion to precisely control LEDs or drive a DC motor using an H-bridge. The Servo Expansion is often also called the PWM Expansion.
