Data radios for robust industrial wireless data connectivity

FreeWave Technologies' LRS data radios are designed for robust industrial wireless date connectivity using licensed spectrum outside the USA.

03/30/2011


FreeWave Technologies has introduced its new LRS data radios for robust industrial wireless data connectivity using licensed spectrum outside the USA. FreeWave’s family of licensed radio offerings includes the narrow band licensed frequencies of 400 MHz, 455 MHz, 700 MHz and 1.4 GHz, and is an ideal solution for SCADA applications in oil and gas, water/wastewater, Smart Grid, precision agriculture and similar industrial markets.

The new LRS radios are designed to meet the communication standards in international markets and support the respective licensed spectrum frequencies. Already European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) certified for use in more than 27 European countries, plus Canada, Mexico and New Zealand, the LRS Series radios offer superior RF link budgets through higher RF receive sensitivity, rather than increased RF output power. The resulting lower power consumption of the LRS radios not only makes them more suitable for remote installations and solar power than other licensed spectrum products on the market, it also allows for significant cost savings.

As true serial data radios, the LRS series radios provide optimum use of the available bandwidth in narrow-band UHF channels without the protocol overhead of native-IP radios. The LRS series, including the new ETSI approved radios, operates in licensed UHF frequencies (406 – 430 MHz and 435 MHz to 470 MHz) for exclusive, non-shared use of the RF spectrum, decreasing the likelihood of congestion or interference. The radios are housed inside an industrial-grade, small and rugged enclosure that offers mounting and installation versatility, including a DIN rail mounting option, with all connectors conveniently located on one side of the enclosure.
