Pacific Crest Announces New Wide-Band Data Link for Field Communications

HANNOVER, Germany, October 9, 2012 Pacific Crest today introduced the new XDL Rover, an advanced, high-speed, wireless data link built to withstand the rigors of GNSS/RTK surveying and precise positioning.

The XDL Rover is a lightweight, ruggedized UHF receiver designed for digital radio communications between 403 and 473 MHz in either 12.5 or 25 kHz channels. This sophisticated radio utilizes Pacific Crest's latest generation XDL modem technology while remaining backward compatible with existing Pacific Crest products. Using the latest modem technology from Pacific Crest, users can instantly communicate with GNSS precise positioning receivers that share the same protocols throughout the world.

"The XDL Rover is an ideal high-speed radio receiver for products that require a one-way communications link," said Dale Hermann, director of marketing and sales for Pacific Crest. "It's interoperability with existing equipment and greater functionality will allow customers to rapidly integrate and cost-effectively deploy the XDL Rover with their products and solutions."

The XDL Rover joins the rapidly growing line of XDL products that includes the XDL Micro, a transceiver OEM board. The XDL Micro is a 0.5 Watt UHF transceiver designed for integration into products that require either a one- or two-way radio communication link that is configurable for operation between 403 and 473 MHz. The XDL radio line is based upon the successful ADL products from Pacific Crest.


The XDL Rover and XDL Micro from Pacific Crest are available now through its international network of authorized dealers.
