PCB Transmitters - UHF

12-86-5000

The 12-86-5000 transmitter PCB used in this product is a small low cost, high specification bare printed circuit board paging transmitter measuring 60mm by 31mm and only 6mm deep with the battery fitted.

It has been tested and type approved as a bare printed circuit board allowing integration into other  products without further type approval testing being required.

The 12-86-5000 is an extremely small, low cost UHF POCSAG paging transmitter PCB powered by a standard CR2032 coin cell. The transmitter will operate for more than 1000 transmissions under normal conditions before needing to be replaced.

The transmitter is ideal for developers and integrators wishing to develop their own low power solution.

Using a POCSAG receiver the 12-86-5000, as with all paging transmitters, can also be used for any general remote control application, such as turning on lights, disabling alarms or switching machinery on or off.

Care is recommended in order to avoid static discharge which may damage the PCB during handling 

12-86 transmitters support up to 5 inputs, each of which can be programmed with up to a 35-character message. Programming can be either with a serial programming cable that can be purchased separately or pre-programmed when supplied. Once the operating frequency has been set the 12-86-5000 messages can be changed using configuration software with an optional programming lead.

Although the 12-86 is a low power transmitter, a direct line of sight transmission range of up to 200 metres can be expected. Transmit range within buildings is reduced, but still considerable having proven to be effective in some cases between floors and across buildings.

  • UHF operation
