Radiocrafts AS now expand the RC232 product line family with a completely new high power module, the RC1180HP-RC232. The module is pin compatible with the existing RC11xx-series, and enables extended range using the same low-cost design philosophy applicable for the whole RC11xx product family.
The RC1180HP-RC232 (868 MHz) module is certified for operation up to 500 mW under the European radio regulations for license-free use. When used with quarter-wave antennas a line-of-sight range of over 3 km can be achieved.
The compact RC1180HP-RC232 module, measuring only 12.7 x 25.4 x 3.3 mm, sets a new standard of integrating high power technology into a complete RF modem in one single tiny package, replacing tens of components compared to a discrete design. No external components are required, except an antenna. The modules are delivered on tape and reel for efficient volume production.
