The Motorola GP628 Plus is a non-keypad, two-way radio and said by the company to be one of the toughest units it has produced. Rated IP67, dust-tight and water-submersible, the radio is resistant to knocks and drops.
With the growing acknowledgement of global warming and the effect it has on our climate, in particular our precious water resources, there is now more than ever a realisation of the importance of water conservation
In a typical broadcast transmission, radio signals bounce off objects in the environment, reaching the receiver over multiple paths. 'Multi-path' signals can produce fading and distortion resulting in temporary failure of reception
Savi Technology has begun deploying solar-powered RFID readers and signposts, enabling users in the defence and commercial sectors to conserve energy and reduce costs while tracking supplies in real time.
Held in conjunction with the RadioComms Connect 2007 conference, the ARCIA gala dinner brought together over 350 industry professionals, including manufacturers, suppliers, designers and system users, to celebrate the industry.
They came, they presented, they exhibited, they networked and they dined. They said they were "impressed", "delighted", they said it was worthwhile and then they asked where the 2008 event will be.
The VX-820 series of commercial handheld radios are IP57 submersible and come standard with a powerful 2000 mAh Li-Ion battery for long talk times. A 3000 mAh Li-Ion battery is also available. Designed for use in hazardous environments, the devices each exceed the military specification 810C/D/E/F. They are claimed to be the smallest digital APCO25 radios in the world.
Radio frequency tagging has reached the motor vehicle manufacturing industry but not just as a guide to warehouse parts: the latest tags are actually attached to components inside a working car
Smart and adaptive antenna technologies are entering a stage of full market acceptance, according to a report from West Technology Research Solutions (WTRS), a Silicon Valley-based research, publishing and consultancy company focused on emerging wireless technologies.
Macquarie University electronics PhD student Michael Boers has defeated competitors from universities in the US, Canada and Korea by designing and building an ultra-efficient radio frequency (RF) power amplifier.
The first 42 radio dishes of the Allen Telescope Array (ATA) are working and collecting data from outer space, according to the University of California, Berkeley and the SETI Institute
Until now, the ability to perform multicasting over the internet has not been possible. Omnitronics has implemented a technique to overcome this issue to enable a number of radios to be linked together over the internet in a peer-to-peer arrangement. Once in operation, audio received from any radio will be transmitted to every other radio.
Wearable, wire free and easy to set up do not usually describe devices that monitor heart rate and cardiac activity
