M2M Connectivity Launches The Radiocrafts RC17xxHP Narrowband RF Modules For Industrial Applications

M2M Connectivity offers a new radio module series for the industrial radio market from Radiocrafts AS. The RC17xxHP series provides narrowband radio performance combined with high output power for long range industrial applications.

The new RC17xxHP module series covers all ISM bands below 1 GHz. Bands covered include 169, 433 and 868 MHz, and some national bands (444, 458, 465 MHz, etc.) used for application specific radio communication. The embedded RC232 radio protocol provides 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. Temperature stabilized crystal oscillators ensure reliable operation over the full industrial temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees Celsius. The RF output power is configurable up to 500 mW.

Superior sensitivity of the narrowband 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 and provides reliability in environments with strong RF interference.

The RC17xxxHP series is ideal for applications like crane controls, industrial sensors and other high reliability radio links. The modules come in a very compact 12.8 x 25.4 mm form factor, in surface mount package and delivered on Tape&Reel.
