RLX2-IFH9E Product Image

Industrial Frequency Hopping 900 MHz Ethernet


Discontinued: No new product for sale. More Info

The RLX2-IFH9E is user configurable as a master, repeater, and remote radio. It provides virtual peer-to-peer packet switching and network optimization using advanced Smart Switch technology. Combined with an industry leading high-speed transmitter, the RLX2-IFH9E is ideal for applications requiring fast and reliable communications at long distances. 

The RLX2-IFH9E is quickly configured using the included, graphical ControlScape software. 

The RLX2-IFH9E employs proprietary frequency hopping algorithms and 128 bit AES encryption algorithm approved by most governments for critical networks.

Caractéristiques Avantages

  • 1.1 Mbps RF data rate at up to 30+ miles with line-of-sight (LOS)
  • Smart Switch technology provides true peer-to-peer connectivity and optimizes performance
  • Serial device support via serial-to-serial tunneling or serial TCP/UDP encapsulation
  • Longer wavelength of unlicensed 900 MHz for superior wireless signal propagation
  • Up to one watt transmit power for long distance
  • Metal enclosure, industrial operating temperatures, vibration and shock resistant
  • Certification for use in hazardous locations
  • Proprietary frequency hopping algorithms (not detectable by Wi-Fi scanners)
  • 128 bit AES Encryption
  • Graphical representation of network for configuration and diagnostics
  • Advanced diagnostics including temperature and signal quality


The ControlScape FH application provides a graphical representation of your RLX2-IFH radio network, allowing you to easily configure the radios and monitor their performance from anywhere in the network. ControlScape can be used to support configuration and installation as well as provide long-term monitoring of system performance.
