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 last issue of IEN Europe before the summer break features a Special on Hydraulics & Pneumatics . Read a technical article on the effective Monitoring of Hose Assemblies , or get to know more about the Role of Valves in Industrial Automation . This month’s Cover Story is a case story on reducing the setup times of machinery by using automated actuators. In our Interview , a representative from the company Flir talks about the possibilities of thermography in industrial applications and recent advancements. As usual, we provide you with lots of add-on information, such as videos and data sheets.
Enjoy IEN Europe June/July and have a great summer.
