Semtech AirLink® RV50X Benefits
Rugged Design for Demanding Environments
Designed to withstand harsh industrial conditions, is the AirLink® RV50X is capable of surviving 5 V brownouts and spikes from -600 VDC to 200 VDC. Certified as Class I Div 2, it is ideal for hazardous environments. The die-cast aluminum housing is sealed to meet IP64 for resistance to dust and water ingress.
The AirLink® RV50X is tested to meet and exceed the MIL-STD-810G specification for shock, vibration, temperature, and humidity. The built-in power supply protection makes it suitable for harsh electrical environments such as compressors, generators, and excavators.
Ultra-Low Power Consumption
The AirLink® RV50X offers best-in-class power consumption combined with LTE performance and is optimized for battery and solar applications. It is the industry’s only LTE gateway with 2G power consumption, operating at 900 mW in idle mode. For 3G deployments migrating to LTE, the RV50X will work with existing power infrastructure, eliminating the need to invest in replacement solar panels or batteries. Standby Mode provides additional protection for batteries by dropping power consumption to 53 mW, and can be triggered by timers, low voltage detection or I/O.
Ideal for global deployments, the RV50X provides worldwide LTE coverage with just two product variants; one for North America and EMEA, and one for Asia-Pacific.
With support for network operator switching—automatic configuration of the radio, based on the SIM—the RV50X provides versatility and simplicity when changing between network operators at any time.
