Laird Technologies Releases New High Power LT1110 900 MHz Wireless Module
Press release date: November 30, 2011
Module Ideal for Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint Wireless Network Communications
St. Louis, Missouri, USA - Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced the release of its new High Power LT1110 900 MHz wireless module.
The new High Power LT1110 900 MHz wireless module sets yet another standard for industrial RF communication. Based on proprietary FlexRF(TM) technology, this module offers more than forty times the output power of the current low power LT1110. Embedded with Laird Technologies' robust server-client protocol, the LT1110 family permits an unlimited number of clients to synchronize to a single server for low latency communications. The server and all clients in a network can communicate with any radio in range via either addressed or broadcast packets. The configuration and test software allows OEMs to design and test networks to suit their applications.
The new module features a higher output power, up to 24 dBM conducted, in the same small surface mount or pluggable form factor as the original LT1110. It also includes an integrated antenna or U.FL for an external antenna. Easy-to-use with a quick time to integrate, the LT1110 provides simple wireless communications for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint networks.
"The new High Power LT1110 900 MHz wireless module builds on Laird Technologies' family of Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum radios, including the AC4490, LT4424 and LT2510," said Chris Downey, Laird Technologies Product Manager, Telematics & Wireless M2M. "Enabling long-range wireless communications for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint networks, it is priced competitively or lower than that of the competition."
While the new High Power LT1110 offers greater transmit power than the previous Low Power LT1110 version, the same low power sleep modes are available, making the module an ideal product solution for the M2M market segment, particularly sensors and handheld data loggers.
Laird Technologies is active in the wireless M2M market, offering the widest range of high-performance wireless modules utilizing Bluetooth® technology, as well as integrated antennas and electronic components. The company's broad selection of M2M products provides solutions for the automotive, telematics, healthcare, EPOS, retail, finance, and security, as well as asset management markets.
