The Fastest Way to Wireless

ConnexLinkTM stand-alone radio modules are set up in minutes to cut the cables between RS232 or RS485 devices. Their flexibility and economical price allow users to quickly upgrade wired terminals to cordless operation in industrial, commercial, and residential applications.

Powered by a 125mW 2.4GHz radio or a 1000mW 900MHz radio, each unit is small and easily portable for use in mobile and temporary settings, as well as fixed installations. Optional software enables custom configurations based on user needs.

ConnexLink implements a proprietary communication protocol to provide secure local data transmissions. Because it uses FHSS technology, the data remains reliable over distances of up to 20 miles (32 km) line-of sight (900MHz version). Use of license-free frequency bands ensures that units are ready to use with no further certification requirements. Every unit is backed by a full one-year warranty.

Easy to Set Up and Simple to Use

Download the new ConnexLink Setup Wizard from Laird for a simple and complete experience for first time configuration of ConnexLink radios. A user, with no prior experience, can purchase ConnexLink radios and, with the assistance of the Setup Wizard, easily connect and pair radios within minutes for his or her digital signage application. The ConnexLink Setup Wizard delivers a direct path to wireless connectivity; just as simple as plug, click, and connect.

Flexible RF Protocol

Laird’s embedded transparent protocol simplifies the integration process by allowing seamless plug-and-play installation. As each unit receives raw data, it manages over-the-air protocol to assure successful communication. Headers, data packet length, and CRCs are not required. Broadcast communication to all devices or address packets to a specific destination using unique MAC addresses embedded in each unit.

Protocol Features

Features vary by product. Contact our global sales team to explain why some features are particular to CL024, CL4790, or CL4490.

RF Protocol Modes

  • Communication Unicast (one-to-one addressing) Broadcast (one-to-multiple addressing)
  • Acknowledgement mode (ACK) API with software ACK indication
  • Handshaking CTS/RTS, modem mode
  • Variable baud rates
  • In-range/session indicator
  • DES encryption (only on CL4790, CL4490)
  • Raw data or transmit/receive API
  • Radio Module configuration: Destination address RF transmit power RF channel Broadcast/addressed
  • 9-bit serial interface mode
  • All transceivers FCC approved

ConnexLink radio modules provide simple elimination of cables with a wireless link replacement. Every unit is backed by a full one year warranty.
