The Falcon PLUS is a simple, cost-effective, and field-proven solution which delivers high-resolution, real-time, full-motion video up to seven miles line-of-sight at a fraction of the cost of licensed microwave systems and fiber networks. Operating in the unlicensed 5.8 GHz ISM band, the Falcon Plus offers unmatched wireless video performance and a ready-to-install solution for hard-to-reach, remote PTZ or fixed cameras. Boasting twelve user-selectable channels, the Falcon Plus can support multiple camera installations and simultaneous data transmission up to 9600 bps.

The system is capable of transmitting two channels of audio or single-channel audio along with two Virtual Wire™ contact closures. Sensors, alarms, and detectors can be wired to the transmitter to take advantage of this feature. In data pass-through mode Falcon PLUS also functions as a wireless, single-direction data transmitter that can provide mono audio transmission while passing RS232 at data rates from 1200 to 9600 baud with provisions for RS422 and RS485 through the use of our optional 
LC485/422 module. Using the data pass-through mode it is possible to control PTZ cameras, but you will need an additional Falcon PLUS transmitting in the opposite direction.

By integrating the Falcon Plus wireless system into the complete CCTV or traffic monitoring solution, integrators and installers save the inconvenience and high cost of stringing fiber to every camera location. And, through the use of the 5.8 GHz band and polarized antennas, users can realize the best possible video transmission quality with maximum immunity to interference.

The Falcon Plus also features a proprietary Secure Standby mode which, when enabled, allows the system to go into “sleep” mode until an alarm input is detected. Not only does this feature save power in battery-dependant (or solar powered) applications, but it also eliminates all radio-frequency output, rendering the system undetectable to frequency monitoring. With all of these features, it is no wonder the Falcon Plus has been utilized in a wide variety of security and broadcasting applications.

The Falcon PLUS is FCC and Industry Canada approved and requires no path license.
