M48A Application Board

M48A modem application board

The apps board presents the M48 modem, combined with a radio module (either USX or BiM/NiM family) and suitable interface circuits, power supplies and connectors. Optionally, the board can be housed in an EAS80 (or EAS120) extruded aluminium housing. In the simplest case, a pair of these units (with suitable aerials and power supplies connected, of course) can be connected directly to the serial ports of a pair of industrial PCs and the resulting wireless data link used without any further installation or programming.
