RF410 922 MHz Spread Spectrum Radio/Modem


The RF410 was a 100 mW spread spectrum radio/modem for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint datalogger communications. It could serve as a field radio/modem connected to a datalogger 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 dataloggers. Newer loggers provide power to the radio on the CS I/O connector.
  • Allow an additional 3 in. (7.5 cm) along the longest axis for external cable connection.
  • 11.4 x 7.0 x 2.9 cm (4.9 x 2.8 x 1.2 in.)
  • 12.7 x 7.0 x 2.8 cm (5.0 x 2.8 x 1.1 in.) with mounts
Weight 227 g (8 oz)

Average Current Drain

Standby < 1 mA (assuming power-saving options used)
Receiving 24 mA
Transmitting < 75 mA



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.

Datalogger Considerations

Compatible Contemporary Dataloggers

CR200(X) Series CR800/CR850 CR1000 CR3000 CR6 CR7X CR9000X

Compatible Retired Dataloggers

CR500 CR510 CR10 CR10X 21X CR23X CR9000 CR5000

*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.

Enclosure Considerations

A desiccated, non-condensing environment is required. The 14162 Mounting Kit includes hardware for securing the RF410 to an enclosure backplate (see Ordering Info).
