Xeta4 Series UHF Ethernet Radio

SKU: YX4000L, YX4004L, YX4000-SE Category:


The Xeta4 family of radios is capable of operating in the 406-430 or 450-470 MHz licensed UHF band. XetaWave enclosed radios offer 2 Ethernet ports as well as 2 Serial ports (requires included adapter). Modulations up to 57kbps¹ 32QAM provide some of the highest data rates available on a narrowband (12.5kHz) channel. Unique to Xetawave, master radios can use multiple modulation rates to create multipoint, multispeed networks where radio links may vary in distance and signal strength, allowing for the fastest possible speeds to each radio.

Several variations are available, including the dual radio module Xeta4x4, which allows for seamless repeaters, or dual independent radio networks. Board level options are also available for integration by OEMs. Enclosed radios are capable of up to 8W transmit power. A version with backward compatibility with MDS 4710 (A/B mode) is also available.

XetaWave’s 1st generation -E platform allows for simple wireless bridging of Ethernet/IP networks, serial, and Serial-over-IP networks. Simple to setup and get started, this platform is ideal for many wireless networks.

XetaWave’s 2nd generation -EL platform is based on a Linux operating system, allowing for additional functionality compared to the first generation platform. VLANs, static routing, CSMA mesh mode, SNMP, and integrated advanced diagnostic and testing tools are all built into the latest platform.

¹Quoted data rates are radio level modulation rates. User data throughputs vary with application and radio settings. Contact us for more information on available application level throughputs.
