MTX2

UHF Narrow Band FM sub-miniature transmitter

Frequency:425 -470MHz

The MTX2 transmitter module adds a totally new sub-miniature form factor to the existing range of Radiometrix ISM band devices. Using cutting edge integrated RF devices, it offers multi channel, low power narrowband operation in a previously unobtainable size. It is ideally suited to applications where existing wideband modules have insufficient range and where traditional narrowband modules would physically be too big to fit in.

Features

  • Conforms to EN 300 220-2 and EN 301 489-3
  • High performance Fractional N (Sigma-Delta) Synthesizer with TCXO
