Multi-channel transceiver from Radiometrix offers high vibration resistance
15 March 2019
Designed to operate in environments with high levels of noise and vibration, the VX2M is a new NBFM 400MHz band transceiver from Radiometrix. Its sophisticated combination of circuit design techniques ensures the device is highly robust, with excellent resistance to vibration.
The VX2M meets the ETSI Category 1 high performance receiver specification, meaning that it can be used where the operation of a short range device may have inherent safety of human life implications.
Suitable applications include remote controls for industrial machinery or heavy vehicles, open cast mining, data loggers and industrial telemetry, as well as specialist fields such as close quarter weapons engagement training.
The VX2M retains all the pin functions of its TR2M parent, including noise operated squelch / carrier detect and separate digital / analogue inputs and outputs. It also supports the same internal i1200 modem.
Conforing to the Radio Equipment Directive (RED), the device has a high performance double superhet, 128 channel PLL synthesizer with TCXO. It offers 23 channels in the 458MHz band and 69 channels in the 433MHz band, and any 3MHz band module from 400MHz to 475MHz is available as a factory tuned custom variant.
