LONDON DT Electronics is to distribute a range of components and modules for low-cost, industrial wireless networks as a result of landing the U.K. franchise for RF Monolithics.
RF Monolithics (Dallas, Texas) has 25 years experience in developing in low power sensor networks and high performance RF components. In Sept 2006 it acquired Cirronet and Aleier enabling it supply a complete family of end-to-end industrial wireless sensors, including Zigbee devices.
Following the recent acquisitions, RF Monolithics is rationalising its distribution network and has appointed DT Electronics (Coventry, England) whose parent company, Nu Horizons, distributes the products in the U.S.
“When we acquired Cirronet we had to review our distribution strategy and broaden our reach globally. DT Electronics is part of that plan,” said RF Monolithics’ European Sales Director, Richard Carter.
DT Electronics’ marketing director, Gerry Hewitt, added: “RF Monolithics is a market leader in this type of RF technology and is the second major franchise that has come along as a direct result of us joining the Nu Horizons Group.”
