5 Button MS Keyfob Development System 315MHz< br />
Rapidly develop hardware and software with the MS keyfob transmitter
master development system. It comes with two remotes and a development
board for testing and prototyping. The board is populated with an MS
Series decoder and LR Series receiver. A large prototyping area gives
you a place to develop circuitry or use a different RF module. To help
you get started, the system also includes an antenna, extra modules,
connectors, demonstration software and a USB interface for connecting to
When used together, MS keyfob transmitters work with MS
Series decoders and compatible Linx RF modules to let you trigger
discrete actions with button presses. The MS Series provides a medium
level of security. It lets you send commands from multiple transmitters
to distinct receivers in the same vicinity through digital addressing.
The remote contains an MS Series encoder and an LR Series transmitter.
It can be used with a combination of an MS Series decoder and an LT
Series or LR Series RF module.
The encoder uses input from up to five buttons to encode a digital signal, then passes the signal to a
transmitter for sending. A receiver picks up the signal and passes it to
a decoder. If the signal is accepted, the decoder replicates the
encoder's inputs on its outputs. The outputs can be connected to up to
five devices such as microprocessors, LEDs, motors or relays.
The decoder will only accept transmissions from compatible encoders with
addresses that match its own. The MS Series has 16,777,216 (224)
possible addresses, which makes accidental conflicts very unlikely.
Addresses can be configured with button presses.
The MS Series also sends the encoder ID, making it easy to allow or deny access to
specific outputs based on which encoder is doing the sending. However,
because the MS Series does not use encryption or rolling code, it does
not protect against intentional security threats. For protection against
intentional threats, consider the HS compact handheld transmitter.
Develop quickly: prototyping area and PC interface allow rapid development of hardware and softwareEvaluate RF modules: use the included LR Series module or integrate your own module in the prototyping areaGet help easily: call Linx for free technical supportIntegrate with ease: set up simple remote control systems without a microcontroller or the need for user programmingAvoid accidental conflicts: 24-bit address helps prevent identification mistakesControl access to specific outputs: accept or reject certain commands based on the encoder ID
