Telit GM864-Quad-Antenna and GM864-Quad-Antex Modules

Telit GM864-Quad-Antenna Module

The new GE864 family introduces the first GSM/GPRS module on the market equipped with an integrated antenna, pushing the boundaries of smooth integration one step further. The GE864-QUAD Antenna module features a compact design and the extended temperature range of the unique BGA (Ball-Grid-Array) package for the GSM/GPRS engine, which has been coupled with a printed antenna seamlessly integrated in the design. Typical m2m environments have been taken into consideration, thus making this module the perfect platform for high-volume m2m application requiring an integrated antenna. The robustness of the embedded tailor made QUAD-band antenna dramatically cuts down the design-to-market time. Costs and efforts involved in the cumbersome RF development phase are minimized because the whole RF chain is already embodied in the module, relieving the customer from all EMC integration problems between module and antenna. The GE864-QUAD Antenna as such, inherits all the premium features and performances that characterize these modules, as the capability to run the customer's application inside the module through its Python interpreter, or the state-of-the-art SPI and IIC interface, providing connectivity the external peripherals such as sensors and displays. Telit Wireless Solutions provides 360° degrees support for specific needs, with a dedicated team working since decades in the field, which will offer further implementation assistance in this very specialized field of technology, given its experience and specific knowledge. All Telit modules-support Over-the-Air firmware update by means of Premium FOTA Management. By embedding RedBend's vCurrent® agent, a proven and battle-tested technology powering hundreds of millions of cellular handsets world-wide, Telit is able to update its products by transmitting, in just one delta fle, the differences of the new firmware from the one to be updated. As a part of Telit's corporate policy of environmental protection, all products comply to the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) directive of the European Union (EU Directive 2002/95/EG).

Telit GM864-Quad-Antex Module

The GE864-QUAD Atex is the extra-rugged member of the GE864 product family incorporating quadri-band functionality, RoHS compliance, as well as featuring low power consumption. The GE864-QUAD Atex module has been designed for critical applications working in explosive environments and, as such, it's architectural and engineering specifications followed the strict requirements of the ATEX directive. This means, for example, that every critical component in the whole production cycle is traceable and features specific ATEX rates. The highest level of intrinsic safety (ia) for this module makes its use suitable in the most critical environments (Group II, Category 1), and allows its integration into equipment to be used in potentially explosive atmospheres and/or in apparatus electrically connected to others located in such atmospheres. The Ball-Grid-Array (BGA) package provides for a very low profile in the integrated solution while at the same time enhancing the performance of mechanical resistance to shock and vibration increasing the safety of these applications. Since cost is a key element for all the applications, the elimination of connectors afforded by the BGA concept also brings down the solution cost compared to conventional mounting methods. With his low profile design, extended temperature range, ESD and EMC compliance, the GE864-QUAD Atex is the ideal and complete hardware platform for all atex m2m markets, both OEM and aftermarket. All Telit modules, support Over-the-Air firmware update by means Premium FOTA Management. By embedding RedBend's vCurrent® agent, a proven and battle-tested technology powering hundreds of millions of cellular handsets world-wide Telit is able to update its products by transmitting only a delta file, which represents the difference between one firmware version and another. As a part of Telit's corporate policy of environmental protection, all products comply to the RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) directive of the European Union (EU Directive 2002/95/EG).

Software

ActiveXperts SMS Messaging Server is a Windows-based software package that enables you to send, receive and process SMS and e-mail messages. Supported communication protocols: GSM, HTTP, SMPP, SMTP, POP3. Incoming messages are processed by 'triggers', and can be fully customized.

It's a framework for any scenario where one/two-way SMS is required. Create a voting/polling system, send out mass SMS broadcasts, create a reservation system, etc.. Real-life case-studies are included as sample projects.
