RF Modules is the Australian distribution partner of Radiometrix, a leading global developer of low power VHF and UHF radio modules for licence-exempt and licensed frequency bands.
The company offers UHF narrowband transceivers manufactured by Radiometrix that have been optimised for noisy industrial environments.
Power-efficient radio solutions developer Radiometrix has introduced a new UHF narrowband transceiver specifically suited for power-constrained applications where existing single frequency wideband UHF modules cannot deliver the required range.
Supporting data rates of up to 10 kbps, the NTR2 module provides a low power, highly reliable wireless data link even in the most uncompromising of industrial settings.
With an RF power output of 10 dBm and a receiver sensitivity of -118 dBm, its usable range can extend beyond 500m.
Available in 434.075MHz, 434.650MHz and 458.700MHz versions as well as customised options offered right across the 433MHz (EU) and 458MHz (UK) licence-exempt bands, these UHF narrowband transceivers combine effective screening with internal filtering to minimise spurious radiation and susceptibility.
The transceiver products conform to both ETSI EN 300 220-3 and EN 301 489-3 standards. In addition, they have an operating temperature range of -10ºC to +60ºC.
Broad spectrum applications set to benefit from the incorporation of these radio transceiver modules include:
- EPOS equipment
- barcode scanners
- data logging systems
- industrial/ commercial telemetry equipment
- in-building environmental monitors
- high-end security/ fire alarms
- DGPS systems; and
- vehicle data upload/ download systems.
Thanks to their compact dimensions and low levels of power consumption, UHF narrowband transceivers are particularly appropriate for use in battery-powered system designs.
