EC: NL5000-T

Network Integration - Wireless products: The NL5000-T is a high performance radio transceiver designed for voice and data communications. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.


The NL5000-T is a high performance radio transceiver designed for both voice and data communications. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.

NL5000-T is a high performance radio transceiver designed for voice and data communications. Features:

  • Narrow Band (12.5 kHz) or Wide Band (25kHz) Models
  • Broadband TX/RX Design: 26 MHz VHF,28 MHz 220 MHz ,20 MHz UHF
  • 6 Watt (VHF/220 MHz) and 6 Watt (UHF) Models
  • Frequency Ranges:  136-162 MHz 148-174 MHz 217-245 MHz 400-420 MHz 450-470 MHz
  • Compact Size: 3.6-in. L x 2.3-in. W x 1.0-in H
  • Frequency stability standard at 1.5 ppm for fixed applications
  • Ultra-fast TX/RX attack times
  • Controlled envelope TX keying
  • Dual transmit and receive audio paths
  • Meets FCC and IC (Canada) standards
  • Programmable high/low output power
  • SMD component design
  • Custom frequency ranges 

The NL5000-T Series is ideal for any system design where high performance RF specifications, fast TX/RX attack times, and compact size are a requirement. High specifications permit integration into systems demanding the utmost performance in congested frequency environments. This compact design makes the NL5000-T Series perfect as a retrofit to RNet and JSLM installations. Direct modulation with low distortion and low group delay result in a low bit-error-rate (BER) for enhanced system integrity and reliability. The Swift Lock synthesizer-loading algorithm reduces unit turn-on-time to less than 15 ms for high-speed data throughput rates, and controlled envelope keying reduces adjacent channel "key clicks," resulting in spectrum-friendly operation. Capable of half and full-channel spacing operation, the NL5000-T Series can be installed in systems where re-farming compliant narrowband frequencies have been assigned.   RF Neulink

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
