2.4 GHz Telecommand ModuleNK-2.4Y
The NK-2.4Y is a 2.4 GHz embedded telecommand module that can transmit 8 on/off switching signals incorporating CRC-16 error detection for error free communication. A Hamming distance of 6 helps to minimize any malfunctions.
By setting one module as input mode and another as output mode, it's possible to drive a maximum of 8 outputs from 8 inputs. For example you can connect switches / buttons to the input module and control relays or motors at the output module.
The NK-2.4Y switches between transmit and receive rapidly allowing two way communication between input and output module to constantly monitor the communication link status. By displaying this link status as an output signal from the module, this will help the user stay within the signal coverage area. Frequency hopping minimizes interference from other nearby radio systems on the 2.4 GHz band. There is no need to manage any channels and multiple system operation in the same area is possible.
Low voltage and current consumption allows the module to operate on 2 x 1.5 V or 1 x lithium coin battery.
Communication is 1:1 only (1:N or N:1 not possible).
Note: The external antenna is not included with the NK-2.4Y. If required, please specify the antenna to be used. Refer to the antenna list here.
When the internal pattern antenna is used, please make sure to short the ANT select jumper on the board.

Evaluation Tools : TB-NK2.4Y_IN, TB-NK2.4Y_OUT
The TB-NK2.4Y allows you to evaluate the NK-2.4Y and perform simple switching tests. Communication range can be tested easily by checking the LEDs on the output board.
Link status of modules can be confirmed by the LINK LED on both the input and output boards.
Note: Modules on the input and output boards are linked prior to shipment.
- 8-push buttons and output LEDs
- Power, Link and Low battery status indicator LEDs.
- Operation with battery or external power supply
- Terminals for direct connection to module.
