The RFWaves transceivers, which operate over a wide voltage range of 2.5 to 3.6V, have wakeup and lockup times of 60s and 1s, respectively. This allows for efficient power consumption management. The modules' high data rate enhances data transmission quality enables the transceivers' use in applications requiring a high bandwidth, and provides a more robust communications link and capability to handle more complex network scenarios than the lower-rate alternatives currently on the market. Two versions of the modules are available. The RFW3M provides a data rate of 3Mbps, while the higher-end RFW8M offers an 8Mbps data rate. The modules have an indoor communication range of up to 20m, which can be doubled with a power amplifier. Offering robust performance, both devices are designed to coexist with 802.11b/g, Bluetooth, and other wireless networks. The modules offer a simple 3-wire-bus digital interface. Overall, the modules include 15 interface pins and can be soldered on a motherboard like a standard SMT component.

The May issue features a Preview on Europe's biggest measuring technology fair, Sensor+Test 2013. This is supplemented by a Focus on Sensors, Test & Measurement that includes product news, as well as a technical article and an interesting application. Another case study highlights the use of an RFID system in a Chinese engine manufacturing plant. Furthermore, IEN Europe has an article that asks the question Is There a Future for the PLC? . Throughout the magazine, you will also find brand new products launched at the recent HANNOVER MESSE, for example a Motor Control Center for predictive maintenance.
IEN: The motto for HANNOVER MESSE 2013 will be "Integrated Industry". In what ways will this motto be reflected...
