Data Guide
Warning: Some customers may want Linx radio frequency (“RF”)
products to control machinery or devices remotely, including machinery
or devices that can cause death, bodily injuries, and/or property
damage if improperly or inadvertently triggered, particularly in industrial
settings or other applications implicating life-safety concerns (“Life and
Property Safety Situations”).
NO OEM LINX REMOTE CONTROL OR FUNCTION MODULE
SHOULD EVER BE USED IN LIFE AND PROPERTY SAFETY
SITUATIONS. No OEM Linx Remote Control or Function Module
should be modified for Life and Property Safety Situations. Such
modification cannot provide sufficient safety and will void the product’s
regulatory certification and warranty.
Customers may use our (non-Function) Modules, Antenna and
Connectors as part of other systems in Life Safety Situations, but
only with necessary and industry appropriate redundancies and
in compliance with applicable safety standards, including without
limitation, ANSI and NFPA standards. It is solely the responsibility
of any Linx customer who uses one or more of these products to
incorporate appropriate redundancies and safety standards for the Life
and Property Safety Situation application.
Do not use this or any Linx product to trigger an action directly
from the data line or RSSI lines without a protocol or encoder/
decoder to validate the data. Without validation, any signal from
another unrelated transmitter in the environment received by the module
could inadvertently trigger the action.
All RF products are susceptible to RF interference that can prevent
communication. RF products without frequency agility or hopping
implemented are more subject to interference. This module does have
a frequency hopping protocol built in, but the developer should still be
aware of the risk of interference.
Do not use any Linx product over the limits in this data guide.
Excessive voltage or extended operation at the maximum voltage could
cause product failure. Exceeding the reflow temperature profile could
cause product failure which is not immediately evident.
Do not make any physical or electrical modifications to any Linx
product. This will void the warranty and regulatory and UL certifications
and may cause product failure which is not immediately evident.

Description
The HumPRCTM Series is the most complete system to integrate
bi-directional remote control into many different applications. No
programming is required and both module and finished hardware options
are available, making it the easiest solution to implement.
The module provides long-range transmission at 868MHz and 900MHz for
multi-region operation, utilizing frequency hopping and industry-standard
encryption for secure and robust communications. The HumPRCTM
Series interoperates with Linx’s HumPROTM family, making it the only
remote control solution that simultaneously supports data applications for
seamless integration with sensor and control IoT applications.
The evaluation module contains the surface mount HumPRCTM Series
transceiver module on a board with through-hole headers. This small board
simplifies prototyping with the HumPRCTM Series module, allowing it to be
integrated into a host PCB without requiring any soldering.
There are three versions of the evaluation module, populated with the
three versions of the HumPRCTM Series module. The standard version has
the standard module and an MMCX connector for use with the Master
Development System. The “-CAS” version has an edge-mount SMA
(868MHz) or RP-SMA (900MHz) connector for the antenna . The “-UFL”
version uses the module’s on-board U.FL connector for the antenna.

7 MODE_IND O
Mode Indicator. This line indicates module
activity. It can source enough current to drive
a small LED, causing it to flash. The duration
of the flashes indicates the module’s current
state.
8 RESET2IThis line resets the module when pulled low.
It should be pulled high for normal operation.
9 CMD_DATA_IN I
Command Data In. Input line for the serial
interface commands. If serial control is not
used, this line should be tied to supply to
minimize current consumption.
10 POWER_DOWN I
Power Down. Pulling this line low places the
module into a low-power state. The module
is not functional in this state. Pull high for
normal operation. Do not leave floating.
11 LATCH_EN I
If this line is high, then the status line outputs
are latched (a received command to activate
a status line toggles the output state). If low,
then the output lines are momentary (active
for as long as a valid signal is received).

38–45 S0–S71I/O
Status Lines. Each line can be configured
as either an input to register button or
contact closures or as an output to control

Power Supply Requirements
The module does not have an internal voltage regulator, therefore it requires
a clean, well-regulated power source. The power supply noise should be
less than 20mV. Power supply noise can significantly affect the module’s
performance, so providing a clean power supply for the module should be
a high priority during design.
A 10Ω resistor in series with the supply followed
by a 10μF tantalum capacitor from Vcc to ground
helps in cases where the quality of supply power
is poor. This filter should be placed close to the
module’s supply lines. These values may need to
be adjusted depending on the noise present on
the supply line.
