Overview

The CL024 transceiver is a Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) radio designed for license-free operation in the 2.4 GHz Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) unlicensed band. The radio sustains a standard asynchronous serial data stream between two or more radios. Housed in a compact and rugged die-cast enclosure, the radio is equipped to replace miles of serial cable with its wireless link. The radio features an RS232 interface for integration into legacy data systems.

For first-time configuration of ConnexLink, download the ConnexLink Setup Wizard.

Note: Some variants of the CL024 have reached end of production and are available on a limited basis only. Find the End of Life Announcement in the Documentation tab below. Only the following part numbers are affected:- CL024-100-232- CL024-100-232-SP- CL024-100-232-02
