12-38-7000 VHF/UHF Transceiver with Input/Output

The 12-38-7000 VHF/UHF transceiver is capable of accurate control and telemetry over long distances with the advantage of providing 10 digital and 4 analogue inputs and outputs.


The 12-38-7000 transceiver is capable of accurate control and telemetry over long distances. Designed to be used in hostile environments it can withstand temperature extremes as well as being resilient to electrical noise often found in industrial plants.

The transceiver, along with its integrated input/output interface, is designed for the control and telemetry of industrial machines with high accuracy and speed.

The on-board SD card is used to store the configuration of unit for easy swap-out and can be also store log and audio wave files (.wav). The unit can be made to respond to an event by seizing a radio channel and broadcasting the wave file audio. Anyone carrying a radio transceiver could receive the message.

The 12-38-7000 is a 5 watt analogue transceiver with POCSAG capability for both transmitting and receiving and comes in two variants, a VHF (136-174 MHz) or UHF (440-470 MHz). All parameters are programmable, such as frequency, power output, deviation, POCSAG data transmission.

The USB port, or the RS232 serial port can be used to initiate paging transmissions using the SALCOM propriety protocol, Paging Entry Protocol (PET) or Telocator Alphanumeric Protocol (TAP) PG1 protocol.
