The RF410 was a 100 mW spread spectrum radio/modem for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint data logger communications. It could serve as a field radio/modem connected to a data logger or as a base station radio/modem connected to a computer. The RF410 had an operating frequency range of 920 to 928 MHz, which was used in Australia/Israel.
|Operating Frequency||920 to 928 MHz|
|Type||Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) Transceiver|
|I/O Data Rate||9600 bps|
|Channel Capacity||65,000 Network Identifiers share 25 hop channels.|
|Frequency Hopping Patterns||Six different selectable patterns|
|Frequency Control||Direct FM|
|Receiver Sensitivity||-110 dBm at 10-4 bit error rate (Campbell Scientific protocols will issue retries wherever a bit error occurs.)|
|Interface Rejection||70 dB at pager and cellular phone frequencies|
|Transmitter Power Output||100 mW (nominal)|
|Antenna Connector||Reverse polarity SMA|
|Operating Temperature Range||-25° to +50°C|
|Power||9 to 16 Vdc|
|LEDs||Power on, TX, RX, diagnostics|
|CS I/O Connector||9-pin “D” male for all needed communications lines. Newer loggers provide power to the radio on this connector. Older loggers may require optional power cable pn 14291.|
|RS-232 Connector||9-pin “D” female for TX, RX, CTS, ground RS-232 levels|
|Power Connector||Barrel connector, center positive 12 V for use in base station configuration or with older data loggers. Newer loggers provide power to the radio on the CS I/O connector.|
|Weight||227 g (8 oz)|
Average Current Drain
|Standby||< 1 mA (assuming power-saving options used)|
|Transmitting||< 75 mA|
Note: The following shows notable compatibility information. It is not a comprehensive list of all compatible or incompatible products.
|CR9000 (retired)||Although the CR9000X and CR9000 are compatible, the RF410 radio does not support their fastest communication rates, and is therefore not practical for most of their applications.|
|CR9000X (retired)||Although the CR9000X and CR9000 are compatible, the RF410 radio does not support their fastest communication rates, and is therefore not practical for most of their applications.|
The RF410 can transmit data to another RF410 radio or a CR210 datalogger. The RF410 may also be used in a network with RF411 radios and/or CR211(X) dataloggers if all of the RF411 radios and CR211(X) dataloggers are set to the transparent mode.Campbell Scientific does not recommend using the RF411 in networks containing FGR-115 or RF450 radios.
A desiccated, non-condensing environment is required. The 14162 Mounting Kit includes hardware for securing the RF410 to an enclosure backplate (see Ordering Info).
Current RF400, RF410, RF415 firmware. Requires the Device Configuration Utility.
A software utility used to download operating systems and set up Campbell Scientific hardware. Also will update PakBus Graph and the Network Planner if they have been installed previously by another Campbell Scientific software package.
Supported Operating Systems:
Windows 10, 8.1, 8, and 7 (Both 32 and 64 bit)
