AC4490 900 MHz Radio Module

Laird's compact AC4490 900 MHz radio modules replace miles of cable in harsh industrial environments

Image of Laird Embedded Wireless Solutions' AC4490 900 MHz Radio ModuleUsing field-proven FHSS technology that needs no additional site-licensing, the AC4490 from Laird rejects interference, enables co-located system operation, provides a full range of output power, and maintains data integrity. The AC4490 features include drop-in installation and a number of on-the-fly control commands, providing OEMs with a versatile interface for any application. It can be used as a direct cable replacement requiring no special host software for communication.

All frequency-hopping, synchronization, and RF system data transmission/reception is performed by the module. This radio module can achieve open-field ranges in excess of 20 miles, has high propagation in the 900 MHz band, and includes options for 1 W power transmission and a sensitive low-noise amplifier in the receive chain.
