Powercaster transmitters provide a reliable source of wireless energy to power, over a distance, devices equipped with Powerharvester receivers.

TX91501 Powercaster Transmitter

TX91501 Powercaster Transmitter
The TX91501 Powercaster™ Transmitter broadcasts radio waves in the unlicensed 915MHz ISM band for remote power and data. Designed for use with Powerharvester® Receivers, the transmitter and receivers operate as an end-to-end system to wirelessly trickle charge batteries or operate battery-free devices for commercial and industrial applications. The data broadcast can be used for location tracking or authentication of the transmitter or end device. The TX91501-3W provides power and data at 40-50 feet when using the P2110 Powerharvester and the directional antenna included in the P2110-EVB kit.
