The FPX3-869-20 high-data-rate transceiver from Radiometrix is suited for industrial telecommand tasks, machine control, fast, long-range data modems and robotic/mechatronic control functions.

This versatile radio module makes use of the pan-European high-power 869.4-869.65MHz allocation to offer half-watt RF power output in a 67 x 30 x 12mm footprint.

Combined with its sensitive (-115dBm) high-specification (80dB blocking) receiver circuits, this adds up to an adaptable data link device that is capable of achieving a range of over 3km.

The basic 20kb/s module operates on one of two user-selectable channels (869.475, 869.565MHz) and features very fast (under 3msec) rx-to-tx switching time.

Future releases will include wider (64kb/s, one-channel) and narrower-band (5kb/s, eight-channel) versions, while the FPX3 also shares a basic pin-out with a range of VHF and UHF modules in the SHX and USX ranges.

An adaptable user interface is provided, giving complete control over the module operation via a simple serial port, as well as additional functions such as analogue baseband I/O and an RSSI signal.

Only a single 5V supply is needed, the module drawing 50mA in receive and under 450mA (for 26dBm output) on transmit.

The FPX3 transceiver is ideally suited for applications where other frequency bands are too congested, or low transmit power limits yield insufficient range or reliability.

All FPX3 versions comply with ETSI EN 300 220-3 and EN 301 489-3, for unlicensed operation throughout Europe.
