Lindon, U.T. MaxStream, Inc. has released the 1 Watt 9XTend-NEMA wireless modem, which enables the company's 9XTend RF modem to be used in harsh environments.
The 9XTend-NEMA is resistant to most weather conditions, including rain, snow, ice, dust, and wind. This protection is especially attractive for applications such as SCADA, electronic signs and fleet management that constantly deal with electronic devices operating in fluctuating outdoor climates.
With the choice of either a dipole antenna inside the enclosure or the ability to place the 9XTend-NEMA in closer proximity to an external high gain antenna, integrators are able to substantially reduce the RF loss that occurs when running a long cable from an outdoor antenna to a modem placed indoors. This advantage maximizes the operating range of the modem.
The 900 MHz 9XTend-NEMA incorporates 9XTend RF modem technology, which features a wireless module operating at 1 Watt of output power, for ranges up to 40 miles line-of-sight with a high-gain antenna. The 9XTend also utilizes 256-bit AES encryption and interference immunity, ensuring secure and reliable communication.
The 9XTend-NEMA features a 9XTend RF module, RS-232/485 interface and the option of either an internally housed dipole antenna or an external antenna (via an RPTNC connection). The enclosure includes a bracket that allows for easy attachment to most surfaces.
The 9XTend-NEMA is priced starting at $499. It is available now. Click here for the 9XTend data sheet.
