Radiocrafts AS now expands their product line with two new modules, the low cost RC2400 and RC2400HP. These are IEEE 802.15.4 modules designed for ZigBee® PRO, 6LoWPAN and other protocols based on IEEE 802.15.4. A ZigBee PRO compliant stack is available free of charge.
Typical applications include Smart Meter Reading (AMR, AMI, Smart Grid), Building Automation, Health Care, and wireless sensor networks/M2M. Operation at the 2.45 GHz licence free band enables world-wide usage.
The module is a complete RF system solution including a high performance multi-channel
DSSS radio transceiver and a packet protocol handler. The internal microcontroller holds up to
256 kB Flash memory and 8 kB of RAM making room for an advanced application, including a
ZigBee Smart Energy (SE) compliant solution. The RC2400HP also includes a range extension
LNA and Power Amplifier with 100 mW output power and this can give up to 8 times the range
compared to RC2400 in line of sight.
