M48-458-TR2I

500mW UHF NBFM multi channel radio modem

Frequency:458.5 - 459.1MHz UK band (any in 420-480MHz)

The M48-458-TR2I presents M48 modem IC combined with a TR2I radio module and suitable interface circuits, power supplies, connectors to provide a complete RS232 radio modem interface. Optionally, the board can be housed in an EAS120 extruded aluminium housing. In the simplest case, a pair of these units (with suitable aerials and power supplies connected, of course) can be connected directly to the serial ports of a pair of industrial PCs and the resulting wireless data link used without any further installation or programming.
