Satel’s new UHF radio data modem Compact-Proof, designed for outdoor measurement applications, features autonomous rechargeable battery power and a robust housing with IP67 protection.

Compact-Proof from Satel gives users double advantages with a powerful lithium-ion battery and the EASy radio data technology including a display and a robust housing with IP67 protection, the company said. With transmitting power of 1,000 mW, it can be operated fully autonomously as a repeater station in the field for more than 15 hours. The power can also be supplied parallel via an external rechargeable battery with a solar panel; alternatively, the Compact-Proof can be recharged overnight, and within five hours it is ready for the next work day.

The user-friendly installation, robust IP67 housing and 4-pin and 8-pin ODU connections make the new radio data modem Compact-Proof attractive for measurement applications, Satel said. The device features all functions of the Satel radio data modems EASy and 3AS and is 100 percent compatible with these solutions.

In addition, it supports the radio protocols of Pacific Crest, Trimble and other GNSS providers, which expands the areas of application.

Whether in the rainforests of Vietnam or in the Arctic, the temperature range of -30°C to +65°C and the frequency ranges of 330 MHz…420 MHz and 403 MHz…473 MHz make the Compact-Proof a reliable partner for all outdoor applications, Satel said. The housing features a robust, compact design with a display and foil keyboard.

As a light version — without an internal battery — the device offers numerous advantages for outdoor applications and even withstands the harsh conditions of machine control environments, for example.

In Germany, radio data transmission solutions from Satel are distributed exclusively by systems provider Welotec.
