  • Suitable for wireless RS-485 (energy meters & etc.)

    posted by dev4tech on 14:38:20 G3T 05/03/2014 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Includes USB>>TTL adapter so just plug'n'play, has data direction pin (i'am using it for wireless RS-485), small power consumption, support point to multipoint . Very good coverage. Large data buffer helps send over wireless protocols like Modbus (tested with 4 different energy meters and 2 temperature, humidity sensors).

    Cons: NO

    Other: Simple and useful wireless solution as can be. Just buy and use it !

  • Good, but it could be better and cheaper.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Long range, adjustable frequency, encrypted link.

    Cons: Lack of documentation. I was able to edit the settings with PC via the included USB - TTL converter, but unable to recieve any data. Antennas could be better. Software also isn't perfect, it always gives you an error in Chinese, but it works.

    Other: It is a good set, a bit expensive, but worth the money. I plan on purchasing another set.

  • can be used for it's purpose

    posted by deman13 on 06:19:59 G3T 29/03/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Good quality, has been shipped within 3 weeks. Can be used for it's purpose. Easy to connect and use. All info about how to use the dev. can be found on the internet.

    Cons: Can be cheaper. Didn't hold the claimed distance of 1000m if one of the transmitters is in a building and the other on is outside. Starts loosing connection at around 100m. Didn't check in the open area, though, with direct view.

    Other: Would suggest it to somebody else mentioning the cons it has. Over all It does what i want it to be used for.

  • Good Device!

    posted by Followman on 02:57:55 G3T 11/03/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Easy to use. Plugin into USB, install drivers and work! Tested on Windows7. Good construction quality. PCB is soldered fine. RF transmitting power is real.

    Cons: Antenna included could be stronger. This can increase the range of work. There might be a strange realization of all signals of the COM port. I.e. for example might not be able to use this device as a wireless substitute data cable.

    Other: Good price. On Ebay, with shipping may be much more expensive. Very happy with purchase. Solved my problem with minimal cost.

    posted by ccenteno on 10:45:32 G2T 20/02/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: All parts included, 2 modules, usb adaptor and usb wire. To RF link PC --> Arduino, or Arduino --> Arduino, or Our development to any another device. Easy to use. Configuration Software in web (RF magic for APC22x V1.2A). To test APC device I use arduino Mega and Robot Car Kit. I need to test the max distance with included antenna and using external antennas. The Next step I need to test comunication between three or more modules.

    Cons: RF communication software magic is unstable at times. The Arduino Sensor Shield v5.0 is not 100% compatible with APC. The Arduino UNO is not compatible 100% with APC. I need to connect externally pins SET and EN.

    Other: APC220 RF link

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Includes everything you need: antennae, usb convertor for PC connection. Got it working in under 15 minutes. Which is faster than similar systems I have used (XbeeS2 and NRF chips) Nice Simple Uart Connection. No strange protocol required. Drivers found at: http://www.silabs.com/products/mcu/Pages/USBtoUARTBridgeVCPDrivers.aspx Great that it can work from 5.5-3.3V, makes it flexible for a number of systems. Pretty low powered.

    Cons: None.

    Other: Probably the easiest way to make your project or robot wireless.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Good modules and easy to use too. It comes with usb adapter for test/comissioning. It's possible to create a point-to-point network with your PC/laptop or between two microcontrollers. Good package.

    Cons: No cons at all. Just identify communication pins and power the board. You are ready to go.

    Other: Great for a simple DIY microcontroller communication or home applications.

    posted by AZGFOREVER on 00:42:04 G10T 31/10/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This module is very promising. Its really long range makes it very useful for many applications and with the SMA connector, you can use a better antenna or even use a coaxial extension cable to put the antenna in a more accessible place if your module will be housed in a box for example. The transfer speed is good.

    Cons: price could be lower. stock antenna is a bit weak-> higher gain would be preferable. I don't think it can be connected as a multipoint to multipoint network.

    Other: I really recommend this module over all the other modules around on DX if you need a simple wireless TX/TX link. Price is a bit high but it saves you the hurdle to interface a wireless transciever via SPI.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Small and easy to use. The default is RS232 communication. You can change the frequency of use and also use a passkey. The antenna 2dBi manages a range of 1000 meters, according to the specification. Efetuei tests and appears to be exactly the same. The set comes with a USB adapter to connect the pc and use promptly.

    Cons: I did not find negative points.

    Other: Arduino, microcontrollers, PCs.
