RF Solutions has released its ZULU2 radio module range, created to supersede its popular ZULU range. Three versions are available comprising of a telemetry module, a modem module and a firmware free module.
The range functionality is on par with its predecessor, with the addition of total integration, meaning the module now requires no external components to provide a complete RF solution.
The range includes:
• ZULU2-M: a highly integrated RF modem and intelligent controller with a simple interface to the host controller. It handles all RF data communications automatically and without any requirement from the user.
• ZULU2-T: telemetry module providing a reliable transceiver based remote switch with up to 2km range. Each unit is supplied ready to operate, once paired with another, a remote control system is created.
• ZULU2: a hardware platform module containing a SiLabs RF transceiver and processor allowing the user to programme the device to suit their own requirements. With no firmware supplied by RF Solutions, this would appeal to somebody with a confident programming ability.
The smart modules, just 25 x 11mm in size are compact yet powerful, able to achieve a range of 2km. Operating on the license-free 868 or 915 MHz frequency bands the ZULU-2 range is available in surface-mount or dual-inline options.
ZULU-2 is a great match for applications including; remote control, switching, tracking, monitoring, security, metering and data-logging. The three different modules open up the market of users this range will appeal to. No matter what the project – there is a module to help with the challenge.
