vImpulse and vImpulse2 Logos


Vanteon’s vImpulse™2 radio is a dual-band software configurable radio transceiver module designed for long-range data communications with very low power consumption for battery-operated devices.

The small form factor and low power allow the module to be utilized in applications that require remote control and sensor data acquisition in industrial environments where frequent battery changes are inconvenient and costly. Applications include industrial IoT, low power wireless sensor network systems, SCADA, meter reading, oil and gas monitoring, and control. The use of unlicensed spectrum allows the device to be easily installed in an existing enclosure and deployed in a wide variety of systems.

These radio modules are intended for IoT and Industrial IoT endpoint applications where high reliability, low cost, and extremely low power are key features. Possible applications include:

  • Residential  – Robust, real-time, Lighting and Equipment Control throughout a residential or apartment building
  • Smart Grid – Geographically dispersed telemetry sensors and equipment control nodes for Distributed Energy Resources (DER)
  • Medical – Wireless health monitoring in an environment with a high density of users, e.g. hospital, nursing home, residential rehabilitation facility
