MaxStream Introduces High-Power Weatherproof Wireless Modem

1 Watt 9XTend RF Modem Now Available With NEMA 4 Rated Enclosure

LINDON, Utah, Feb. 17 - In response to the demand for rugged outdoor wireless connectivity, MaxStream(R) Inc. has released the 1 Watt 9XTend-NEMA(TM). The NEMA 4 rated enclosure allows the award winning 9XTend(TM) RF modem to be used in harsh environments.

"The 9XTend RF modem has raised the industry standard for long-range wireless capabilities, and the addition of a NEMA 4 enclosure makes it possible for widespread integration into rigorous outdoor settings," said Hugh Nielsen, MaxStream's Chief Technology Officer.

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 sophisticated interference immunity, ensuring secure and reliable communication. The 9XTend's unmatched performance and price, earned it the eeProductCenter.com Product-of-the-Year in 2004.

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 currently in-stock, with prices starting at $499 and volume discounts available.
