Globally accepted 2.4GHz Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum module designed for serial to wireless communications for machine to machine applications
Laird Technologies RAMP ISM (Range Amplified MultiPoint) modules are designed to provide robust wireless communications for any number of applications requiring a wireless transport for serial data. RAMP ISM modules feature a Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) protocol for excellent interference and multipath immunity. RAMP ISM modules Server/Client architecture allows for more than 16 million clients to be addressed and communicating within the network.
The RM024 RAMP ISM modules is a 2.4GHz FHSS embedded module with high output power and low receiver sensitivity for long range operation, intelligent sleep modes for long range battery life and switchable antenna options for integrated and external antennas. The RM024 is available in two versions, one with 125 mW maximum conducted output power and approved for North American and similar markets and one with 10 mW maximum conducted output power and approved for European and similar markets. These modules are identical except for output power, transmit power consumption, and the number of RF Channels available. Differences between the two versions, where applicable, will be denoted based on part number. Enhanced API commands provide packet routing control and network intelligence. With its field-proven FHSS air interface protocol, the RM024 rejects RF noise, excels in multipath scenarios, allows for co-located systems, and provides an extremely reliable communication link. It also provides a more robust, but simpler, link than ZigBee for RF applications that do not require a mesh topology.
With a throughput of up to 500 Kb/s, RM024 delivers speedy data rates. In addition, variable output power options (up to +21 dBm) enable communication over distances that aren’t achievable with competing technologies. At the same time, a range of ultra-low power modes plus low Tx/Rx power consumption make the RM024 ideal for power-restrictive or battery-operated applications. The mini SMT package is well-suited for space-constrained designs and is available in pick-and-place packaging for volume manufacturing.

The RM024 is certified for compliance to regulatory and Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) standards and specifications. Laird customers can leverage the grants, approvals, and formal test reports associated with these certifications to achieve required device certifications; for details, consult the information below. For additional guidance, contact the wireless certifications group via email.
RM024-x10-x version modules have been tested for compliance to various CE and ETSI standards and specifications:
These formal test reports may be leveraged by mobile and portable device vendors as part of their self-declaration to obtain the CE mark required by members of the European Union. ETSI/CE rules differ from those of the FCC and IC in that there is no provision for a modular approval. All approvals and certifications must exist at the device level rather than the module (radio) level.
The RM024 is fully compliant with Annex IV procedures in article 10.5 of R&TTE directive 99/5/EC.
The RM024 is fully compliant with European Union Directive 2003/95/EC or Reduction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) as per our Declaration of Compliance. Click to view the Statement of Compliance to EU WEEE Directive and RoHS Directive.
Laird has received the following FCC grants for the RM024:
This grant is a Single Modular approval. Specific limitations are indicated on the grant.
The RM024 are approved for mobile and fixed applications.
The RM024 is certified for compliance to the Industry Canada (IC) RSS-210 (Issued 19 October 2012) standard. IC 6616A-certification is based on FCC certification testing, using the same antennas and transmit power and covering the same frequency bands.
The RM024 is certified for compliance to the Japan RF ARIB STD-T66 standard.
The RM024 is fully Bluetooth SIG qualified as END products. View the listing on the Bluetooth SIG website, here. For more information visit the Bluetooth SIG website, here.
