The ES Series is ideal for the reliable transfer of digital data and analog waveforms, such as audio. Available at 916MHz and 869MHz, the ES Series uses a synthesized architecture to transfer data at up to 56,000bps over distances of up to 1,000 feet (300m) depending on implementation.
The ES Series consists of separate single channel FM/FSK RF transmitter and RF receiver. There is no processor or protocol embedded inside the modules, so no configuration or programming is required. The modules contain just the physical radios, so all protocol functions are handled outside the module. This allows the designer to create a system that is specifically tuned for the application, with no extra overhead, power consumption or cost above what is absolutely necessary.
The ES Series is a true FM radio, so it can be used with digital or analog sources. When used with audio sources it provides an analog link capable of reproducing intercom quality audio from 20Hz to 20kHz.
The wireless transmitter is capable of generating +1dBm into a 50-ohm load. The receiver’s advanced synthesized architecture achieves an excellent typical sensitivity of -96dBm. The transmitter module operates over a 2.1 to 4.0VDC range and the receiver module operates over a 4.5 to 5.5VDC range. Both feature very low power consumption, a wide operational temperature range, adjustable transmitter power, and RSSI output. As with all Linx RF modules, no external RF components are required (except an antenna), which allows rapid integration, even by engineers without previous RF design experience.
- Be creative: send or receive analog and digital data with few legal restrictions
- Integrate with ease: simple hardware configuration lets you transfer raw data without protocol constraints or the need for user programming
- Save power: low current consumption compared to competing modules extends battery life
- Simplify design: modules and antennas are the only RF components you need; no tuning required
- Streamline production: save time and money with modules that are already tested
