Transceiver - VHF / UHF

12-38-0000

The 12-38-0000 transceiver is capable of accurate control and telemetry over long distances. 

Designed to be used in industrial environments it can withstand temperature extremes as well as being resilient to electrical noise often found in industrial plants.

The transceiver is designed for the control and telemetry of industrial machines with high accuracy and speed.

The transceiver is designed for the control and telemetry of industrial machines with high accuracy and speed.

The 12-38-0000 has an on-board SD card which is used to store the configuration of a unit, this allows for ease of copying a configuration between units e.g. to replicate a system, the capturing of log files and storage of audio wave files. The unit can be set up to respond to an event, such as an input, by selecting a radio channel and broadcasting the audio wave file. Anyone carrying a radio transceiver, set to that channel, can then receive the message.

The 12-38-0000 can be configured as a store and forward radio repeater to extend the radio range of any installation. This will allow monitoring and control of sites in difficult locations without clear radio access.

The 12-38-0000 is a 5-watt analogue transceiver with POCSAG capability for both transmitting and receiving and comes in two variants, a VHF (136-174 MHz) or UHF (440-470 MHz). All parameters are programmable such as frequency, power output, deviation, POCSAG data transmission.

The USB port, or the RS232 serial port can be used to initiate paging transmissions using the SALCOM propriety protocol.

  • POCSAG and NRZ standard transmissions.
  • Analogue FM transmission & reception
  • Over The Air Baud Rate 512, 1200.
  • POCSAG built-in encoder (programmable on/off)
  • 240 Character messaging, buffered.
  • RS232 buffered serial port / USB port.
  • RF output through standard BNC termination.
  • 3 Ground activated inputs.
  • 2 Open Collector outputs.
  • Other I/O:
  • PTT, Busy, Mic/AV in, Mic/AV Out, +5V.
  • Connectors:
  • Serial Port (RS232) = RJ12 (6P6C)
  • Serial Port / Flash Drive = mini USB
  • Input/Outputs = RJ45 (8C)
