Cellular Universal Communications Platform for the Security Industry Uses Telit’s CE910-DUAL CDMA 1xRTT Module.
Telit Wireless Solutions, a global provider of high-quality machine-to-machine (M2M) solutions, products and services and Sugar Land, Texas based ipDatatel, LLC (IPD), an engineering, design and manufacturing firm, announces that IPD’s Cellular Broadband Alarm Transmitter (BAT) CDMA product uses Telit’s CDMA 1xRTT cellular module, the CE910-DUAL, for wireless data communication. The product is a universal communications platform for the security industry designed to transmit alarms via the Internet and cellular communications and to provide remote device control through devices such as a laptop, iPhone, iPad or Android. The cellular BAT can also provide instant alarm notifications via text, email and computerized voice alerts. ipDatatel focuses on building low-cost high-feature interactive products that are easy to use providing consumers with security and convenience.
ipDatatel’s Cellular BAT is a low-cost, plug-n-play solution for security and home automation applications requiring multiple paths for assured communications, multiple manufacturer support and ease of installation. It overlays or replaces conventional phone land-lines (PSTN) providing high-speed dual-path-IP Internet and cellular alarm connectivity. Alarm transmissions use the security industry’s Contact ID format and are sent to the monitoring center via the PSTN or transmitted directly over IP and are compatible with multiple alarm panel brands including Honeywell, DSC and GE/lnterlogix. Alarm signals such as open/close, trouble, supervisory, latchkey, and monitoring of special devices, can be routed directly to your Central Station or to the end user.
The CE910-DUAL packs high value features in its ultra-compact 28.2 x 28.2 x 2.04 mm Land Grid Array (LGA) package. USB 2.0 full-speed support and a rich set of drivers make it ideal for embedded applications requiring easy integration to platforms based on the latest desktop and mobile operating systems such as Windows and Linux. Full-duplex data rate of 153.6Kpbs and extended operating temperature range of -30°C to +85°C make it a suitable platform for mobile and fixed applications such as security and surveillance, vending, point-of-sale (POS), tracking, smart metering, and telematics.
Mike Ueland, senior vice president and general manager of Telit Wireless Solutions North America, said:
“The BAT-CDMA integrates our CE910-DUAL module which is certified for use on all U.S. CDMA carriers. ipDatatel selected it largely because of the wide migration path to other future mobile technologies such as EV-DO with the DE910-DUAL. The BAT is a great example of how innovators like ipDatatel can leverage their design investments for a long time. The product can remain viable and competitive for many years without being redesigned in any way because of the xE910 form factor family.”
“Today buyers want the ability to be connected by mobile devices anywhere and control their homes and small businesses with the touch of a finger. The BAT’s virtual keypad is compatible with iPhone, Android and most web browsers,” said Russell Vail, president of ipDatatel.
“The challenge with developing an award-wining product like the BAT is the time from engineering to the finished certified product. Being able to leverage existing hardware and software knowledge to produce a product and get it to market quickly is invaluable.”
“There are many modules to choose from, but the Telit team was extraordinarily helpful in defining the path and delivering the product. They met every challenge that was put in front of them, assisting with certification helping to get the BAT to the marketplace in less than six months from concept to reality.”
