The essence of these devices is simplicity, both in initial set up and ongoing use. Host Arduino boards can send and receive (half duplex) up to 180 Bytes of data per packet that will be seamlessly delivered and presented to other hosts within range. No pairing or learning system is required; eRA Arduino will work out of the box!
These devices provide considerably greater range (typically 200m plus) and consume less power than similar Wi-Fi or Bluetooth dongles operating in the overcrowded 2.4GHz bands.
Frequency, bandwidth, power output and data rate can (optionally) be configured to allow multiple devices to communicate free from interference from each other and any other RF devices.
Bi-directional link, no ‘RF protocol’ software required.
Transmit, receive, busy and power LEDs for diagnostics.
Integral SMA Antenna connector, allows use of extension cable for optimal antenna position.
Configurable RF parameters (optional) - fine tune for optimum performance.
Up to 180 Bytes per packet, ideal for ‘Sense & Control’ applications.
Built-in temperature sensor usable by host program.
Addressing and implementation of networking (point to point, peer to peer, mesh) can handled by Arduino™ application software thus providing flexibility and simplicity.
An optional on-board 4 pin header allows connection of an external FT232 USB adapter device to configure the easyRadio module if need be.
