eGSM Q4 1800



MISOLIMA Quad-band GSM module
MISOLIMA™ Quad-band GSM module is based on SAGEM GSM

This Quad-band GSM module is a complete module that only requires antenna, Li-Ion battery, SIM card and power to operate. The core GSM engine is based on the French SAGEM HiLo module.

The eGSM Q4 1800 is based on SMD technologies where the two board connectors are based on two single row 10 pin connectors. The modules uses GPRS Class 10 and has full Quad-band communication covering 850, 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz frequency band. The module has a small form factor of just 33x33mm with an operation temperature range of -40°C.to +85°C. With power consumption of just <1.5mA in idle mode, it makes this module well suited for mobile applications that also gives Internet connectivity.

MISOLIMA eGSM Q4 1800 is especially designed for M2M and AVL - Automatic Vehicle Location applications but with the audio circuit it's also well suited for GSM voice and alarm applications. Measuring only 33 x 33mm it will easily fit into many new M2M, AVL or GSM projects.

Type approvals from R&TTE, GCF, PTCRB, FCC and it's RoHS compliant.

eGSM Q4 1800 has advanced Li-Ion / Li-Polymer Battery Charge Management Controller embedded on PCB set to 1000 mA.The antenna interface of MISOLIMA eGSM Q4 1800 uses GSC RF connector to be connected with an external antenna cable to the module.
• Easy installation and replacement

The fully static design of the eGSM Q4 1800 allows reducing system power consumption by bringing the clock frequency down to any value, even DC, without loss of data.The added features of the eGSM Q4 1800 makes it more powerful for applications that need GSM communication, Internet access and data transfer via GPRS capabilities such as industrial control, consumer goods, alarms, motor control, home and office automation, multimedia control, GPS/GSM applications and more…

MISOLIMA eGSM Q4 1800 Module Quad-band GSM ready to use module

High performance GSM module
Ready to use and replaceable module without soldering

2x2mm 10-pin connector
Uses 2x2mm 10-pin single raw connectors so components can also be places under the module with 3mm free airspace. These connectors are placed on each side of the PCB so the module has good balance compared with modules with connector on one side only.

SIM Socket
The MISOLIMA eGSM Q4 1800 GSM module as SIM card socket on the top side of the module so no external or additional SIM socket is needed. The SOM card socket is 8 pin with SIM detection sensor.
