Laird Technologies' Embedded Wireless Solutions division has unveiled the CL024 transceiver, a frequency hopping spread spectrum radio that can be used for long distance serial cable replacement. Since the transceiver is only 4.4 x 2.7 x 1.4 inches small, it is ideal for mobile and temporary applications as well as fixed installations. Modules of the CL024 can be purchased from Laird distributors as stand-alone units or in preconfigured starter packs.

The Frequency Hopping Spread technology enables multiple networks to co-exist in the same area with limited interference. This technology ensures data reliability over long distances. In addition, the licence-free frequency bands (2.4GHz Industrial, Scientific and Medical) verify that the units are ready for use with no further certification requirements when designing into a new or legacy data system.

The CL024 RF transceiver is housed in a compact and rugged diecast enclosure, enabling long distance serial cable replacement with its wireless link. The radio features an RS232 interface for integration into legacy data systems, providing for backwards compatibility. It has a conducted output power up to 125mW (21dBm) and available antennas up to 9dBi for a maximum radiated power of one watt (30dBm).

The CL024 transceiver utilises a server/client architecture for point-to-point or point-to-multi-point communications with an unlimited number of Clients in a network, API commands to control packet routing and reliable communication with serial UART speeds up to 460.8Kbps.
