Leading wireless solutions manufacturer Radiometrix has introduced (through RF Modules Australia ), the CTA88 series of multichannel RF remote control chip application boards.
These application boards provide simple 8-channel digital input/output implementations of remote control functions, using either the company’s multichannel LMT/LMR (UHF and VHF band) or single frequency BiM (FM band) series of wireless radio modules.
The offering consists of:
- 2 CTA88-000-DIL chips
- A CTA88 encoder board
- A CTA88 decoder board
- ¼ wavelength monopole or helical antennas
- 4 jumpers for mode configuration
- DIP switches for address and frequency channel configuration
- 8 opto-isolated digital inputs
- 8 relay outputs
The CTA88 chip at the heart of each board is an 8-bit address encoder/decoder for use with licence-exempt ISM/SRD band radio modules. It permits the setting up of a straightforward one-way wireless link for remote control applications.
The transmitter and receiver application boards are designed to allow easy evaluation of the CTA88 device’s performance and functionality in elementary jobs. The boards have compact 115 x 86 x 20mm dimensions, and their operating temperature range goes from -20ºC to +70ºC.
