Finnish manufacturer Satel has recently released its Satelline TR4, a compact UHF transceiver with transmitting power of 1,000 mW. The item is compatible with the protocols of Pacific Crest, Trimble and Satel.
Its type certifications make the TR4 ideal for integration in end devices that are intended for international use. With a weight of only 18 g, transmitting power of 1,000 mW and an “over the air” data transmission rate of 38,400 bps it fulfils all present-day standards. The smallest UHF transceiver in its class, with dimensions of 56 mm x 36 mm x 6 mm, it is designed for easy integration. Robust UHF frequencies (400 MHz – 470 MHz) are a reliable basis for the communication of self-sufficient stations even in the event of unknown topology.
In addition, the new TR4 features all of the advantages of the popular Satelline EASy and 3AS modems – including channel scanning, error correction and compatibility with the protocols of Pacific Crest, Trimble and Satel.
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. The identical footprint and the standardised communication commands will minimise integration costs. In the future, it will only be necessary to insert the corresponding radio module for the destination and the end device will be ready to use.
In Germany, radio data transmission solutions from Satel are distributed exclusively by the full-range and systems provider Welotec. At INTERGEO in Stuttgart from 15 – 17 September 2015 the partners will present their products at adjacent stands: Satel and Welotec will be in Hall 4 – Booth G4.020.
