M7

RV-M7-CE UHF Radio Modem

Raveon’s Wireless Technology makes for outstanding Telemetry, OEM and embedded wireless data radio products. Featuring industry-leading performance, coverage, and price, these products enable next-generation performance today.

Exceeding ETSI 300 requirements for UHF radio modems, it features: 1/2-5 watts of RF output in the 440-480MHz, range of 5-50 miles, fast T-R switching time of 10mS, store-and-forward repeater capability, and remote “Ping” capability.

The M7 CE comes in a wide-band version for 25kHz spaced channels (-W), and a narrow-band version for 12.5kHz spaced channels (-N).

An internal GPS option (-GX) allows the M7 to be used for GPS tracking and Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) applications (seeRavTrack – AVL GPS).

The M7 CE Radio Modem is distributed in Europe by Logimine S.A.S.

RT-CB-H1 DataRadio DC power cable DC Power Cord. Note: Each RV-7 comes standard with one power cord included with each unit.
RV-M7-DIN dataradio DIN clip DIN rail mounting clips.
RT-M7-HS M7 heatsink Heatsink Option for M7 series of data radios. With this option, the M7 will operate at up to 100% duty cycle with an ambient temperature of 45C. With air circulating on the heatsink fins, the M7 may be operated at 100% duty cycle up to 50C.
RT-CB-A1 dataradio power cable DC power cable for M7 series radios with automotive lighter adaptor on one end. 3 amps maximum current capability. 6′ long.
RV-SP-1 6A366-1 Surge Protector In-Line DC Surge Protector. The RV-SP-1 is designed to be plugged in-line with the DC input
to electrical devices that may be subject to over-voltage (> 16V) events, large transient voltage spikes, electrical noise, or RF
noise. It filters the DC and protects the connected device from
over-voltage and transient events.
M7-USB USB USB option replaces the standard DB9 RS232 serial connector with a USB 2.0 MINI-B connector and internal a USB-Serial bridge. All features and functions of the M7 remain available via the USB connection.
