VERSITILITY. Comprised of the low-power 1mW RF power LPR2430 / LPR2430A and the extended range 100mW RF power LPR2430ER / LPR2430ERA, the Murata LPR2430 Series modules provide the flexibility and versatility to serve a variety of applications, from simple cable replacement to remote terminal data collection to sophisticated sensor networks. The LPR2430 includes CNL V2.0 Network Layer firmware which features a flexible and simple-to-use Application Programming Interface.

SLEEP CAPABILITY. LPR2430 series modules provide years of battery operation supported through two sleep modes. Timer sleep allows the module to be configured to wake as often as every 100 milliseconds or as infrequently as once every 3.5 years. Interrupt sleep lets the module sleep until it is awoken by either an edge triggered interrupt or an ADC value exceeding configurable limits. Regardless of what wakes the module, the designer can configure the module to remain awake for up to 2 seconds after sending its data to provide an opportunity for an application to communicate to the module before it returns to sleep.

I/O AND AUTO REPORT CAPABILITY. LPR2430 series modules feature Analog, Digital and Serial I/O including Analog & Digital I/O binding.

  • Standard UART interface for serial communications plus 6 GPIO, 3 ADCs, and 2 DACs (PWMs)
  • With the I/O Binding feature, one node has the ability to output on 2 GPIO lines the input value of 2 GPIO lines from another node
  • Auto-reporting features allow many sensor nodes to be built without a dedicated microcontroller - the micro-controller on the module does all the work
  • Auto-reporting mode provides module I/O updates based on timer or interrupts - without the need for the application to poll or otherwise request data
  • Interrupts are generated by edge-triggered events or by exceeding user-defined limits on ADC values - and any interrupt can be used to wake a sleeping mode and have the module send its I/O data
OVERCOMES OBSTRUCTIONS / MULTIPATH FADES. LPR2430 modules feature a one-hop relay that enables one node to send data to a base radio through another node. This unique feature alleviates problems caused when a network works well at commissioning but later periodically loses nodes for periods of time. Yet it doesn’t burden the entire network with the complexity and latency of full mesh – the relay is only used when the node cannot communicate directly with the base. Nodes periodically verify their communication paths to the base as well as to other nodes in the network. The application is not even aware this is happening – it is all handled by the modules.

SAME FORM FACTOR. At 1.05 sq. inch footprint, the LPR2430 series has the same form factor as Murata’s Wi-Fi WSN802G modules, wireless mesh XDM2140 series modules, and ZigBee ZMN2430 series modules.

SAME PINOUT as Murata’s Wi-Fi WSN802G modules, wireless mesh XDM2140 series modules, and ZigBee ZMN2430 series modules

FCC / IC / ETSI CERTIFIED. The LPR2430 series modules are certified for unlicensed operation in the USA, Canada and Europe.

802.15.4 Wireless Serial Data Modem
The ZN-241G is a low-cost, 802.15.4 wireless data modem that can provide an auto-configured, wireless replacement for RS-232 cable in office environments, and can also serve as a platform for multi-drop RS-485 networks in industrial settings. Housed in a ruggedized metal enclosure, the ZN-241G replaces hard wiring in commercial environments that make wired connections challenging or impractical or that require frequent reconfiguration.

For point-to-point communications, ZN-241Gs configure the link automatically; all that's required is plugging the devices into two serial interfaces and turning on power. Point-to-multipoint links are set up by via an included utility that simplifies the configuration of network IDs and channels, and a repeater function allows a remote node to relay data through another remote node when the direct path is blocked. The ZN-241G offers RS-232, USB, and RS-485 interface options, and operates license-free worldwide at 2.4 GHz with over-the-air data rates of up to 250 Kbps.
