Technical information for the THALER AG radio and sensor product line
THALER AG is a developer and manufacturer of radio frequency transmission systems for diverse applications involving remote meter reading. sensor data collection and data transmission.
Different technologies are optimised for the application of various types of solution and presuppose an extensive knowledge of the system involved.
High performance RISC CPU for real-time functionality
Watchdog timer control for no-break applications
Analogue-to-digital converter for voltage and current processing
Industrial and extended temperature range
Wide operating voltage range and low power features based on nano-ampere technology
Long lifetime function for power from battery and solar panel
On-chip memory with data reception during power failures is standard
THALER AG 1-way radio technology permits an economical and current minimised
battery solution. Periods of operation of up to 15 years without changing batteries
are possible. Transmissions take place in secured mode with redundant transmission and check-sum control. The transmission protocols are also prepared for the digital transmission of analogue data
THALER AG bi-directional radio technology is compatible and can be combined with 1-way radio and is used where secured data communication takes place in both directions and radio mesh networks are needed. Frequencies and ranges are similar.
The used output power is from 1mW (range 200 meters) to 500mW
(range 6000 meters), depending on the device.
In European countries, the radio products operate on the radio frequency band 868 to 870 MHz. Other frequency bands, such as 433 MHz and 915 MHz 2.4 GHz, can be used in other countries. Ready-to-use 5.6 GHz high-speed long-distance link.
FSK Frequency Shift Key modulation and THALER AG optimised coding ensures stable transmission even during disturbances by industrial devices.
Each radio and network device works with its unique ID-number and is therefore clearly addressable.
All radio products conform to EN 300 220, VDE0100 and similar standards.
ATEM, Ex or other certifications on request.
THALER AG devices are appropriate for sensor interfaces such as 0-5V, 0-10V, 0-20mA, RS232, and RS485, as well as SPI, 1-wire-bus and other analogue and serial digital modes of transmission. Pulse counter inputs are used for gas meters, water meters and watt meters as well as prepayment meters with power-down relays. The THALER AG wire-1-bus is a simple local interconnector for different sensors/meters over which the concentrated wireless data string can be transferred.
