3173 is a uni-directional Serial Input RF Computer Data Link Transmitter. It can receive up to 64 characters via its serial port input and transmit the data by RF to one of our receiver boards.
When used with the 3174 you can think of them as a wireless serial cable that works via RF. You simply set-up each end to suit the device it is connecting to. There is no handshaking - it is in essence a 3-wirewireless connection.
The serial port baud rate is selectable from 300, 1200, 2400 and 9600. The data format is fixed at 8N1 (8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit).
Two input modes are available as well as input echo if required. An optional destination address can be automatically inserted into the message before transmitting.
Can be used with our Computer Temperature Data Logger (order Code 3145).Specifications
