1W, 400-470 MHz radio data transceiver module in small outline

July 01, 2015 // By Graham Prophet
Finnish manufacturer of radio data transmission technology Satel claims to have = the smallest UHF radio data transceiver module available, the Satelline TR4. The compact UHF transceiver with 1W transmit power is compatible with Pacific Crest, Trimble and Satel’s own protocols.

Type certifications in all important regions of the world suit the TR4 for integration in end devices that are intended for international use. With a weight of 18g and an "over the air" data transmission rate of 38,400 bps it meets all current standards. The smallest UHF transceiver in its class, with dimensions of 56 x 36 x 6 mm, it is designed for easy integration. It transmits on UHF frequencies in the 400 MHz - 470 MHz band to provide a reliable basis for the communication.

The TR4 features all of the advantages of the polar Satelline EASy and 3AS modems - including channel scanning, error correction and multi-protocol compatibility.

Since license-free frequencies are becoming more popular, such as 869 MHz in Europe and 915 MHz for the American market, transceiver modules of identical design will follow for those ISM bands. Identical footprint and standardised communication commands will minimise integration costs.

In Germany, radio data transmission solutions from Satel are distributed exclusively by the full-range and systems provider Welotec.
