XDM2510H WirelessHART module

RF Monolithics has released the XDM2510H WirelessHART module targeting the wireless networking opportunities in industrial automation.

Built around Dust Networks' IA-510 WirelessHART ICs, the XDM2510H is compliant with the international IEC 62591 (WirelessHART) standard and enables industrial automation vendors to meet the rapidly growing demand for standards-based wireless sensor networking (WSN) solutions.

According to Tim Cutler, Director of M2M products, the XDM2510H module provides a UART serial port for connection to sensors and an RF connector for antenna connection thereby removing the need for any RF engineering by OEMs, and with the XDM2510H module certifications in the United States, Canada and Europe (pending), no type acceptance testing is required of the OEMs' end products. RFM's XG2510HE gateway product completes the network solution allowing connection either locally or anywhere across the Internet.

A developer kit, the XDM2510HDK, is also available and includes four XDM2510H modules, four XDM2510H development boards, one XG2510HE gateway, one Ethernet cable, five serial cables, 9V batteries and wall-mount power supplies for each development board, antennas and RF cables, software and manuals CD, and quick start guide. The XDM2510HDK developer kit will be available by the end of June from distributors Acal, Avnet, Digi-Key, Mouser Electronics, Nu Horizons and Welotec.
