@ANY2400-SC-Pro USB Dongle

An advanced plug-and-play USB-hosted gateway for IEEE 802.15.4 2.4 GHz wireless networks. The product provides exceptional transmission characteristics by combining innovative RF technologies with advantageous antenna diversity for seamless IEEE 802.15.4 infrastructure setup.

Mechanical module size 53.5 x 17 x 5 mm

@ANY2400-SC-Pro USB dongles are reliable, advanced,host-powered gateway solutions. Integrated design offers leading edge RF characteristics within a compact sized form factor. Antenna diversity mechanisms implemented via two on-chip ceramic antennas are perfectly matched, while minimizing RF interference losses. A special low noise amplifier front end module fires up the transmitters output power to 18 dBm, so that the incoming signal with even a minimal strength of -121 dBm becomes receivable.

The on-board UART chip facilitates easy serial connection setup via USB interface. Supported with off-the-shelf drivers by the commercially maintained FTDI Driver Suite, the USB 2.0 compliant interface ensures a seamless integration to various operating systems. White plastic enclosures are available as accessories on demand.

Ensure the quick setup by ordering the product preprogrammed with either our AT-command-based Smart MAC Suite firmware, your own firmware, or common stacks such as 6LoWPAN, Zigbee PRO or Lightweight Mesh.
