I think you are going to have interference problems. It is not a good idea to run multiple cards on the same band on the same board. Im not sure what the power consumption is on the XR5, but you also might not have enough power.

dont know about XR5, but with other 400mW+ cards all is in order and no loss at all.. i think depends on wiring inside the box.. should not to cross anywhere

so lets say use 3 crads with 400 mw is better than 600mw with routerboard 433 ?!!
but i want to use the 600 mw power.so what should i do ????????

Three XR5 will not fit in a 433. You will still have self interference issues, tho the MMCX pigtails (at least good quality) and lack of a diversity chip will help.

If it were me... I'd have 3 RB411AH's and 3 XR-5's in 3 seperate enclosures.
Why? Because 3 XR5's won't fit on RB433, possible self-interfence and if there is problem only one sector needs to be down during repairs. I like to keep it simple to troubleshoot when problems do arise.

Your situation may dictate otherwise. ie, lack of space for 3 seperate RB411AH's and enclosures.
I have run 3 R52AH's on RB433AH. Fit's fine, no power issues, but interfence was problem.

rb 433 or 433ah is a 16Watt board. XR5 will take 6-7 Watt power each X 3 exceeds the limit of 433/433ah hence causing board reboots or hang.

and so much noise 600 mW each, why do u want to create.

Use 3 X 711-5hnad. I think it should be good and dual chain + mimo will give u more bandwidth. best of luck

the power 600 mw is very useful for long distance.the 711-5hnad is not useful for long distance like xr-5 ..is my opinion true or there are somrthing i dont no with thanks........

the max u can use is 2 xr5's not 3
3 wont fit bcoz of its heatsink (xr5)

it happened to me

one on the lowest slot and one on the first the middle will be half taken from the lowest one

It doesn't matter how much power you have if the cards interfere with each other.

On a single link, yes, power helps. If you have other equipment there more power typically means more interference.

Fri Apr 06, 2012 3:07 am

I bet under a load it doesn't work. Each of those cards max power consumption is 7 watts and the 433 has a maximum output to the cards of 16 watts. I also don't care what anyone says, interference WILL be a problem using the same band. It might "work" but it will not work to the best of its ability.

What kind of interference? Between cards? Can't you deal with that by making some kind of Faraday cage?

I'm buying 2 433GLs with 2 R52Hns in both. Since I'll have one slot free (say middle one), I can easily put a Faraday cage to reduce interference.
