Telemetry Module EU

Rate this item
(1 Vote)

The 868 MHz European module and base station provides up to 315 mW of transmitter power, with a line-of-sight range of up to 25 miles. The telemetry data rate is 24,000 baud, however for unlicensed operation the modem is limited to a 10% duty cycle over 1 hour. This provides an effective maximum of about 800,000 characters total.

The software that samples data and sends it over the telemetry link allows the user to define what data and at what sampling rate it is to be sent, allowing the user to assure that essential data (system state messages, GPS location, Altimeter, etc) are always transmitted. Data for on-board logging is independently defined and can be at the maximum sensor data rate.

Ground station modems are supplied and various optional high gain antenna systems (omni-directional, dipole and parabolic) are available. In addition, power output can be increased with licensed external amplifiers (5, 10 and 25 Watt models, www.L-com.com).
