Radiocrafts announces narrowband RF modules for industrial market

Radiocrafts AS, a leading provider of RF modules announced today a new radio module series for the industrial radio market. The RC17xxHP-RC232 module series provides narrow-band radio performance combined with high output power for long range industrial applications. The new module series covers all ISM bands below 1 GHz, including 169, 433 and 868 MHz, as well as some national bands used for application specific radio communication (444, 458, 465MHz, etc.). The embedded RC232 radio protocol provide point-to-point and point-to-multipoint communication over an encrypted data link, and is very easy to use.

The narrowband modules operate in bandwidths down to 12.5 kHz, with temperature stabilized
crystal oscillators to ensure reliable operation over the full industrial temperature range, -40 to
+85 degrees Celsius. The RF output power is configurable up to 500 mW.

The combination of superior sensitivity of the narrow-band radio, and high RF output power gives
a very long communication range. The selectivity and blocking properties of these radios makes
them ideal for use in critical applications and environments with radio noise from industrial equipment.
The new module series is intended for applications like crane controls, industrial sensors and
other high reliability radio links. The very good selectivity and blocking properties provide
possibility to work reliably in environments with strong RF interferences.

The modules come in a very compact 12.8 x 25.4 mm form factor, in surface mount package,
delivered on Tape&Reel. Samples are available now.
