The WL242 module is a reliable wireless communication platform suitable for connecting building infrastructure into an easy-to-install, cost-effective network. This IEEE 802.15.4 based, ZigBee protocol compatible 2,4GHz standard was designed for low-power wireless communication in building automation. The module can be used as a plug-in module or integrated into customers designs offering speeds of up to 250kbit/s and indoor range of up to 30m (200m outdoors). The WL242 is also compatible with other ATech’s SmartLine products.
ATech also makes available a Wireless Personal Area Network protocol called SEW (SmartLine Efficient WPAN protocol) which has similar features as ZigBee but it is much easier to use. Using this protocol users can quickly build reliable networks.
Note: in development, test kits available
Using ATech’s WL242 modules customers can significantly shorten the development process and time to market. ATech provides comprehensive support to customers who are using WL242 modules as plug-in’s or integrating the module in other products. From software tips and tricks and layout issues to antenna selection for optimised range ATech offers engineering support through the product lifetime.
