The "Typically Ships Within" value is an estimate of the number of calendar days within which this product is ready to ship from Campbell Scientific. Orders with more than 10 built-to-order products will likely increase the time needed to prepare the order for shipping.

To estimate how long it will take to receive an order that contains multiple products, combine the longest Ships Within value with the transit time of the shipping method you select.

Some specialized products have long Ships Within values. Because of this, you might consider submitting a separate order for these products so your other products won't be delayed.


Common Accessories

15966
 
A charger or field cable is required for ac power to serve as the power source for the RF450. This ac/dc transformer accepts inputs from 90 to 260 Vac @ 47 to 63 Hz, then outputs 12 Vdc @ 880 mA. The 15966 includes a 6-ft cable that terminates in a barrel plug for connecting the transformer to the radio.
14291
 
The 14291 terminates in a barrel plug on one end for connection to the radio, and two pigtails for connection to the 12V and GND terminals of a power supply. This cable has a 2-foot length.
14205
 
Used outdoors, this high-gain (6 dBd), directional (Yagi) antenna has a narrow beam width that requires precise aiming. Its higher gain makes it useful for communicating over longer distances.
14221
 
The RF450 requires the purchase of an antenna. A choice of four antennas is offered. The 14221 is the highest gain (3 dBd) omnidirectional antenna available for this radio. It is used outdoors and has a Type N Female connector. The COAXSMA-L or COAXNTN-L cable is required to connect it to the radio.
19512
 
The RF450 requires the purchase of an antenna. A choice of four antennas is offered. The 19512 is a 0-dBd, 1/2 wave whip antenna. Its SMA connector attaches directly to the radio (antenna cable not required). This antenna must reside inside of a building or enclosure.
20644
 
The RF450 requires the purchase of an antenna. A choice of four antennas is offered. The 20644 is an omnidirectional antenna with a 0-dBd gain. It includes adhesive backing that adheres to a wall, rear-view mirror, window, or another suitable flat, non-conductive surface. A 10-ft cable is provided for attaching the antenna to the RF450. The 20644 must reside inside of a building or enclosure.
COAXSMA-L
 
COAXSMA-L Antenna Cable LMR195 w/SMA & Type N Male Connector
 
Either this cable or the COAXNTN-L (see below) is required when using the 14221 or 14201 antennas. The COAXSMA-L is an LMR195 coaxial cable that terminates in a Type N Male connector on the "antenna end" and an SMA connector on the "transceiver end." This cable is recommended for applications where the cable length is less than 10 feet.

-L ft per antenna cable

Allowed values: 1-1000 ft, increments of 1 ft

COAXNTN-L
 
COAXNTN-L Antenna Cable RG8 w/2 Type N Male Connectors
 
Either this cable or the COAXSMA-L (see above) is required when using the 14201 or 14221 antennas. The COAXNTN-L is a low-loss RG8 coaxial cable that requires the 31317 surge protection kit to connect it to the RF450. The COAXNTN-L/31317 combination is recommended over the COAXSMA-L when the antenna cable is longer than 10 feet (as measured between the transceiver and the antenna) or when the RF450 is used in an environment susceptible to lightning or electrostatic buildup.

-L ft per antenna cable

Allowed values: 1-500 ft, increments of 1 ft

Recommended length is 15, 25, or 35 ft (4.6, 7.7, or 10.8 m).
31317
 
The 31317 is an RF surge protection kit with flange mounting bracket. It may be flange-mounted to an enclosure backplate or bulkhead-mounted through an enclosure wall. One side of the surge protector connects to a radio with an SMA antenna connection. The other side connects to an antenna/antenna coaxial cable with Type N connector.
21212
 
This 10 ft (3.1 m) roll of 1"-wide black self-vulcanizing tape can help protect the connections between the antenna cable and outdoor antenna.
18663
 
The 18663 null modem cable connects the radio to the datalogger's 9-pin RS-232 port.
 
When the 20625 is purchased, the customer receives a Freewave Diagnostics & Programming Cable and a CD containing Freewave Software. These items allow advanced users to perform Network Diagnostics.

Other Accessories

28477
 
This SMA plug-to RPSMA jack allows the RF450 radio to use an antenna or cable that has an RPSMA connector.
31315
 
Commonly used with cellular devices, the 31315 is an RF surge protection kit that is installed by Campbell Scientific, bulkhead-mounted through the enclosure wall. One side of the surge protector connects to a radio with an SMA antenna connection. The other side connects to an antenna/antenna coaxial cable with Type N connector.
 
The 19334 is a factory-installed 17 in. (43.2 cm) cable with an SMA connector on the inside of an enclosure and a Type N connector on the outside for attachment of an antenna. It is intended for enclosures that will house our RF450 radio, a RavenXT-series cellular modem, or a user-supplied Freewave radio.
 
The 19336 is a factory-installed 17 in. (43.2 cm) cable attached to an SMA connector on the inside of an enclosure, providing an SMA connector on the outside for attachment of an antenna.

Replacement Parts

10873
 
The 10873 is a serial cable that is useful for connecting the RS-232 port of the datalogger to the 9-pin RS-232 port of a computer. The cable is six feet long.
