Dear Valued Customer,
We are contacting you today to announce that we are Upgrading the WiFi/Bluetooth Module to Support an External Antenna (on select models of TS-7800-V2, TS-4100, TS-7180). Technologic Systems is constantly looking to make improvements on our products in the Engineering Sampling program, and in support of this we will be starting to ship a variety of the TS-7800-V2, TS-4100, and TS-7180 with support for an external antenna. This change will also come with a $2 per unit price increase on the models affected.
The affected products are: TS-4100, TS-7180, TS-7800-V2, TS-8820-4100
Due to popular demand to extend the range of the WiFi/Bluetooth module on the TS-7800-V2, TS-4100, and TS-7180 we will be updating the installed module part number to the alternative device which uses a u.FL connector instead of the built in chip antenna. This will allow the use of the WiFi/Bluetooth feature in systems that are installed in an enclosure or with another physical barrier such as a daughter card, and will extend the distance that this radio is able to communicate over. Not all models of all products are being changed.
Note: it will also be necessary to use an external antenna with these updated systems, we offer an pre-FCC certified antenna and cable, available for purchase as CB-ANT-WILC.
The upgrade will be applied to the following products for all new orders received:
