Now available with one full watt of output power, AeroComm's ConnexLink packaged transceivers can talk over distances of 20 miles line-of-sight. The company said that the units can be set up in minutes for cable-free communication between industrial RS232/422/485 devices, providing reliable data transmissions of up to 115.2Kbps.

The ConnexLinks are small and easily portable for use in mobile and temporary settings as well as for fixed installations. They can be used as direct cable replacements, requiring no special host software for communication. Optional drivers enable custom configurations based on the user's needs.

Any number of remote ConnexLinks can be set up in point-to-point or point-to-multipoint configurations, and networks can be colocated on site. An embedded protocol (RF232) manages over-the-air concerns, such as interference rejection, error detection, addressing, security and link verification.

"Until now, anyone looking for affordable, long-range, plug-and-play wireless was limited to designed-in OEM modules or bulky expensive packaged radios," said Sean Dycus, Commercial Product Manager of AeroComm. "Our new ConnexLink units make distant networking fast and efficient. Users simply attach mouse-sized radios to interconnect their terminalsas far as 20 miles apart."

"This simple yet powerful solution can shorten development cycles, reduce software investment and decrease time-to-market for data-only portable and permanent terminals," Dycus added.

The new transceivers are priced at less than $290 per unit. To suit the global marketplace, 2.4GHz modems are also available.
