Product Description

 CIX6530, part of Data-Linc Group’s Smart SpectrumTM Radio Modem Family, offers license-free wireless communication in the 2.4GHz band

  • Seamlessly integrates with the Communication Interface to I/O EXtender (CIX) System, acting as a long-range FHSS radio for efficient wireless communication with digital and analog I/O devices.
  • Enhanced hardware features include a faster processor and 12-bit analog channel resolution, ensuring compatibility with legacy devices.
  • Versatile functionality allows for I/O to I/O data exchange or Protocol to I/O solutions, with configuration options including Master, Repeater, Remote, or Repeater/Remote.
  • Configuration is simplified through the user-friendly CIX-IOTM software tool via the RS-232 port, supporting up to 24 signals distributed across discrete inputs, discrete outputs, analog inputs, and analog outputs.
  • Offers reliable communication in challenging environments, with pre-configured default states for discrete and analog outputs in case of communication failure.
  • Boasts a remarkable range of 25+ miles with line-of-sight, suitable for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint applications, marking a gateway to seamless wireless connectivity.
  • Diagnostic LEDS provide confidence in the wireless performance along with confidence provided 256-bit AES encryption for enhanced security
  • Backward compatible with both the legacy CIX6500/R and the DAX6500
