Embedded Radios Ready For Rugged IoT Adventures

Designed for OEM and embedded applications, FreeWave Technologies’ ZumLink Z9-PC line of 900 MHz radios function reliably in rugged environments. Target applications include Industrial IoT (IIoT), defense, precision agriculture, oil and gas, unmanned systems, smart cities, and utilities. Future Z9-PC versions will feature full programmability with third-party applications, a differentiator for wireless within the Industrial IoT. Features include five RF link rates from 115.2 kbps up to 4 Mbps, 128-bit and 256-bit AES counter mode encryption, multiple link rates, channel sizes and modulations, frequency hopping, a range up to 60 miles line of site, operating temperature ranges from -40°C to +75°C enclosed and -40°C to +85°C board level, Ethernet and/or Serial communications protocols, and adaptive spectrum learning. The ZumLink Z9-PC is available now and, as you know, pricing varies, depending upon quantity. For more information, datasheets for various models are available and you can also call FreeWave Technologies at 1-866-923-6168 or 1-303-381-9200.
