Detailed Description

The RavenXTA was retired because the Alltel Network is being phased out by Verizon.

The RavenXTA was a full-duplex modem that transmitted data to the local cellular tower using a CDMA network. Data was sent from the tower to the base station computer via the Internet. Communicating via the Internet provided faster communication rates and eliminated dialing delays and long distance fees.

Datalogger Considerations

Compatible Contemporary Dataloggers

CR200(X) Series CR800/CR850 CR1000 CR3000 CR5000 CR7X CR9000X

Compatible Retired Dataloggers

CR500 CR510 CR10 CR10X 21X CR23X CR9000

*Although the CR9000 and CR9000X are compatible, the RavenXTA does not support their fastest communication rates, and therefore may not be practical for many CR9000(X) applications.

Enclosure Considerations

A desiccated, non-condensing environment is required. The 14394 Mounting Kit includes hardware for securing the RavenXTA to an enclosure backplate (see Ordering Info).
