Use NCD Long Range Wireless Sensors with a computer. The NCD USB Modem connects to the USB port of your PC and receives sensor data from NCD sensors. The NCD USB Modem mounts as a COM port for easy programming. Use the NCD USB Modem for configuration of NCD long range wireless sensors. Use Alpha Station for testing and configuration on a Windows 10 computer.
Connect to the entire NCD wireless sensor ecosystem using an industrial USB solution. This USB modem makes it easy to communicate with NCD wireless sensors using virtual COM communications. Simply plug it in and open the virtual serial port. Sensor data will start streaming in from all sensors within wireless reach. With a 2-Mile range (line of sight), this device operates at 900MHz for deep penetration through trees, foliage, and even some buildings. With integrated Mesh networking, this device also acts as a repeater for sensor data. Designed to work with any operating system that supports COM communications. This USB modem was designed for indoor use only. Requires a 12VDC Power Supply (optional during checkout). Node-Red is currently supported with this device, making it easy to build dashboards of NCD wireless sensors. Requires a 12VDC Power Supply (optional during checkout). For indoor use only.
During purchase, you will see three frequency options. Not all options are legal for use in all areas, so it’s important to make the right selection during purchase. We will build your product and accessories based on the options chosen. Here, we will explain these options in much greater detail, but please check your local laws BEFORE purchase.
If you are located in North America, the 900MHz Option will provide the longest range currently supported with the best penetration through walls, buildings, industrial equipment, and trees. This option is also the best choice for long range applications. The official Line of Sight rating for this option is 2 Miles with included antennas or 28 Miles with high-gain antennas. We suggest contacting Digi.com for a high-gain antenna recommendation if required. Please check your local laws before choosing this option.
If you are located in Europe, the 868MHz Option is the longest range choice available at this time. This option offers better penetration through walls, buildings, trees, and industrial equipment than 2.4GHz. The official line of site rating for this option is 14.5km using 2.1dBi antennas. Please check your local laws before choosing this option.
The 2.4GHz option should be chosen if 900MHz and 868MHz are not legal for use in your country. This option is now certified for use worldwide, including Europe, United States, Japan, Australia, Brazil, and South Korea. Please check your local laws before choosing this option just in case 2.4GHz is not legal in your area.
If you are unsure of which sensor option to choose, please contact us. We may be able to help determine which sensors are legal for use in your area.
