Telit Caters to Wired-to-Wireless Migration Market with New Module, Terminal

By Rory Lidstone October 18, 2013

Telit Wireless Solutions just can’t be stopped this week. After releasing two highly compact wireless modules earlier this week — namely the 3G-only UL865 and the CDMA-based CL865-DUAL — the M2M solutions and services provider has introduced two new short-range, high-power data communication products. Specifically, Telit has released the LT70-868 terminal and the LE70-915 module, both of which support point-to-point, star-topology, short-range wireless transmission.

Aimed specifically at the wired-to-wireless network migration market, these products’ high sensitivity, link budget and data rates make them best suited for areas such as solar and wind farms, oil and gas, and agricultural automation. The terminal operates on the European 868 MHz frequency band, while the module operates on the North American 915 MHz — both of which are license-free bands. This allows manufacturers to integrate wireless communication into control systems and sensor nodes while meeting regulatory compliance.

“The LE70-915 module was designed to help traditionally cable-networked manufacturers of electronic devices in North America, Australia and New Zealand go wireless quickly and easily,” said Dominikus Hierl, chief marketing officer at Telit Wireless Solutions, in a statement. “The LT70-868 terminal also follows the engineering tradition of all our cellular and short-range modules with industry-topping performance and features such as the repeater functionality and high sensitivity that can significantly lower cost and engineering complexity integrating wireless control systems.”

Both offerings are designed to meet specifications that are critical to original equipment manufacturers around the world. The LE70-915’s 142dB radio link budget, for example, makes integration with host hardware very easy. Likewise, the LT70-868 terminal delivers a high 144dB link budget. Both products, meanwhile, deliver a reliable operating range of up to 10km (6.2 miles) thanks to continuous 500mW configurable radio output power operation combined with high sensitivity.

Furthermore, both the module and terminal feature ultra-low standby current, making them well suited to battery-powered electronics.
