BiM3C

869MHz /914 MHz Wide Band FM radio transceiver

Frequency:868.30 MHz, 869.85 Mhz, 914.50 MHz

The BiM3C radio transceiver module is an enhanced replacement for the European/North American versions of BiM3A/B.

It is available in two European unlicensed band frequencies, one with 5mW RF power with no duty cycle restriction@869.85MHz and other with 25mW RF power with 1% duty cycle restriction @868.30MHz.

It is also available on the North American 914.50 MHz licence exempt frequency for low power applications.
