nanoTX™ and nanoPuck™ Transmitters

Quasonix nano family of transmitters

Small Wonder

Starting at a mere 1.3 cubic inches, our nanoTx™ and nanoPuck™ transmitters support the smallest of airborne platforms with programmable multi-mode operation and up to 5 Watts of RF output. The smallest ARTM transmitters now available, Quasonix nano transmitters are ideal for applications with strict SWaP constraints.

Thermal Considerations

It is important that the transmitter’s bottom surface (on the face opposite the product label) be securely attached to a baseplate capable of dissipating the power produced by the transmitter model in use. This mounting baseplate must be flat, smooth, and clean.

ATTENTION: You must operate the transmitter with a proper heat sink. Failure to do so may lead to permanent damage to the unit and will void the warranty. Overheating can occur in a matter of seconds when a transmitter is not properly heat-sinked. In absolutely no case should any type of stickers or labels be applied to the bottom surface of the transmitter.

The heat sink required for a particular transmitter depends heavily on the installation. Factors such as altitude, air temperature, air flow, and mass of the mounting surface all have a substantial impact on the flow of heat away from the transmitter. Quasonix offers several types of integrated and add-on heat sinks. Please contact support@quasonix.com for the power dissipation required and heat sink recommendations for your particular TIMTER™ transmitter.

Regardless of the heat sink, Quasonix strongly suggests using a thermal pad, such as Q-Pad® II from Bergquist.

  1. Hello,

    I am a materials and process engineer for Boeing. I am working with your nanoTX Telemetry transmitter. I have been unsuccessful in finding the material this component is made of. Could you please provide some insight into what metal this transmitter is made of?

    Thank you
