Receivers

The receiver comes in different shapes, prices, and qualities. It can differ greatly in quality. So the first step is buying the right receiver. Below, I’ve created a list of all receivers I’ve tested in order of achievement.

Note: it is recommended to install a low-pass filter

The following receivers have been tested:

433.92 MHz

#TesterNameFromPriceExperience
1CurlyMoShenzhen RXB6Ebay$ 10 (kit)+ Tested to work in at least 30m range (with simple antenna) @5V
It already has a PCB antenna
- Generates a lot of noise w/o a LPF
+ Works perfectly with a LPF
2CurlyMoShenzhen RXB14Ebay$ 4 + The same as the previous receiver
+ Cheap
- No PCB antenna (External antenna required)
3CurlyMoAurel RX-4M50RR30SFConrad$ 20+ Tested to work in at least 30m range (w/o antenna) @5V
+ Generates less noise due to some filtering
- Still needs a LPF
+ Shielded
- Massively expensive
4CurlyMoStandardiPrototype$ 7 - Works only within a 4m range @5V and is thereby unusable
+ Has low noise output
- Doesn't work well with the a LPF because it has an onboard amplifier
- Adding a Schmitt-Trigger makes the noise almost absent
+ Expensive
5CurlyMoDX H5V4HDealExtreme$3,5- Works only within a 4m range @5V and is thereby unusable
- Generates a lot of noise
- Untested with a LPF
6CurlyMoStandardEbay / DealExtreme$2 (kit)- Works only within a 4m range @5V and is thereby unusable
- Generates a lot of noise
- Untested with a LPF
7MarcelStandardConrad$35 (kit)Tested to work within 5-10m (without a LPF) @5V
8AccountabcQiachip WL102-341Aliexpress$1 (kit)+ Tested to work 15-20m/10m through concrete floors with 17.3 cm wire antenna (with Arduino Nano receiver) @5V
+ Cheap

Some Comments

The Aurel receiver has been promoted as being the best receiver out there. My experience is otherwise. You can buy 3 Ebay senders / receivers kits + LPF for the same price and they work evenly well as the Aurel receiver. It still needs some sort of post filtering to be perfect so the cost of a filter adds to the standard price of the receiver. However, the filtering was not yet tested.

The following devices are not working as expected
