Talon UDC - UHF Data radio/controller with GPS AND I/O

The Kantronics Talon UDC (Universal Data Controller) Data Radios combine the functionality of a radio modem/TNC with a built-in UHF or VHF radio transceiver. With the optional I/O board, the Talon UDC also provides more analog and digital I/O lines than Kantronics radio modems. This makes the Talon UDC an excellent choice for remote sensing and control applications that require simplicity, compactness, and reliability. In addition, the Talon UDC provides a cost-effective solution for companies seeking to minimize asset management expenses.

The Talon UDC is available with an optional built-in GPS receiver, which converts the Talon into a stand-alone location transmitter. This makes the Talon with GPS a great choice if you need to both track the location of your assets and monitor/control their operation, and automatic vehicle location (AVL) applications in general.

 Other Talon UDC applications include:

•Traffic control
•Fleet management
•Industrial process control
•Water management
•Utility monitoring
•Public safety
•Text messaging
•Emergency management
No matter what level of data control you need - now and in the future - Kantronics can help you make your business more profitable with superior control of valuable spectrum. Kantronics Talon UDC exceptional design allows for reliable point to point, or point to multi-point communications under less than perfect conditions and excellent performance under adverse signal paths

Analog inputs Eight buffered (hi impedance) inputs, 0 V to +5 V.
Jumper selectable 249 Ohm, 1% resistor allows use with
2-wire or 3-wire 0 to 20 mA dc input.
Buffer/protection op amps limit voltage to the
10 bit A/D converter to 4.950 V.

Discrete inputs Four CMOS logic level inputs. Inputs are pulled hi in the absences of input signal, and may be activated by a low impedance path to ground (such as a switch, relay contact, open collect BJT, open drain FET, or optocoupler output).
Analog outputs Four outputs, 0 to 4.995 V dc into 10k minimum load<
Discrete outputs Four open-drain FET outputs, will switch up to 50 V dc and up to 115 mA.
Diagnostic Port RS-232. May be used only if GPS option is not also installed.
