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.

With the April issue, we celebrate the 40th anniversary of IEN Europe. For that occasion we present numerous interesting articles and interviews on technologies that have been groundbreaking over the past decades. An interview with Nexans is on the Evolution of Cables . A technical article by the EMVA on Machine Vision emphasizes the milestones that have been important for the automation industry. A very recent and up-to-date topic, Industry 4.0, is discussed in an Interview with Wibu Systems, a company dedicated to the protection of know-how. IEN Europe April also features a retrospective on Low-voltage Switchgear by Eaton. To celebrate IEN’s 40th anniversary properly, we have a Reader Offer for you, where you can win a high-tech visual IR thermometer. So please celebrate with us and enjoy!
