Murata Americas has announced the availability of its DNT Series. This class of wireless modules is superior in performance and offered at a lower price-point for applications in need of greater range and lower latency. The series also enables a decreased total cost of ownership because it helps to minimize the necessary infrastructure equipment. Further, it incorporates frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) to deliver better immunity to interference, which is critical in the more crowded bands such as 2.4 GHz WiFi.
DNT products provide longer ranges for outdoor functions, up to 40 miles for 900 MHz installations and 10 miles for 2.4 GHz line of sight, making them ideal for street-lighting, SCADA, commercial drones and agriculture applications. This line is configurable with high RF data rates – up to 500 kbps in both 900 MHz and 2.4GHz bands for data intensive applications in need of lower latency. Additionally, a DNT gateway and separate and secure LANs with 128-bit AES encryption help streamline facilitation with local enterprise networks. Finally, the series incorporates a meshing topology that reduces the total cost of ownership by limiting the number of repeaters and gateways needed.
“By basing the DNT Series on Murata’s propriety FHSS, we created a solution that provides increased resistance to multi-path fading. This line enables exceptional RF link quality and superior immunity to in-band interference, making it especially well-suited to industrial and factory environments,” said Jim Philipp, Senior Marketing Manager, Murata Americas RF Product Department.
