Low-power telemetry receiver allows 'always-on' speed and convenience

02-02-2016 | Radiometrix | Subs & Systems

Radiometrix' latest RX1L narrowband receiver consumes less than 1mA,
allowing 'always-on' functionality in energy-limited solar or
battery-operated equipment without excessively draining the power source and
limiting operation.

Measuring 59mm x 38mm, and only 7mm high, the RX1L is ideal for
space-constrained applications such as data logging, industrial telemetry,
smart-building controllers, security or fire-safety. Its industry-standard
footprint and pin-out, simplify design-in to new equipment or upgrading
existing designs that currently use other receivers. The wide supply-voltage
range of 3.1 - 9VDC means the device is easily powered from various standard
battery voltages.

The RX1L is a single-channel receiver available on 151.300MHz, 169.4125MHz,
and 173.225MHz frequencies as standard. Other frequencies are available by
special request. As a narrowband device it is suitable for long-range
applications at bit rates up to 5kbps, aided by high receive sensitivity of
up to -120dBm for 12dB SINAD.

The module is fully shielded, offering high immunity to external
interference, and is compliant with ETSI EN 300 220-2 (radio) and EN 301
489-3 (EMC) standards.

Users can evaluate new projects based on the RX1L, using the NBEK evaluation
platform and xx2M carrier / adapter for the receiver module.
