Product Details Supplier Info More products

Radiometrix’s TX3B-869.85-64 and RX3A-869-10 radio modules are being used by the engineering department of Durham University to monitor the performance of its solar-powered racer.

The Durham University Solar Car (DUSC) has a steel space frame construction with a carbon-fibre body shell, which makes it very light and ensures that energy is not expended unnecessarily.

The high-efficiency photovoltaic cells that cover its outer surface are able to produce 1.4kW of power, allowing the vehicle to reach a maximum speed of 56mph.

The Radiometrix products being utilised in the DUSC’s telemetry system allow the transfer of important information to the chase vehicle that follows behind it.

The team engineers can thus gain access to a continuous stream of real-time data on the voltages/currents passing through the DUSC’s circuitry and on how much solar energy is being received.

The Radiometrix TX3B-869.85-64 transmitter located in DUSC has a 32 x 12.5 x 3.8mm form factor.

It can deliver a 7dBm (5mW) RF output and supports 64kbps data rates.

This is complemented by the RX3A-869-10 receiver, which is placed in the chase vehicle.

When paired with the TX3B, the RX3G receiver allows a reliable data link to be implemented up to a range of 300m.

Both the transmitter and the RX3G receiver comply with the ETSI EN 300 220 and EN 301 489-3 standards.

These modules are suitable for a variety of different end applications, include vehicle data upload/download, data logging, asset tracking/management systems, industrial telemetry/telecommand systems and high-performance security/fire alarms.
