Phoenix Contact Industrial Radio Tranceiver

January 2009 Vol. 236 No. 1


Phoenix Contact’s new RAD-ISM-900-EN-BD is an industrial radio transceiver designed to bring ethernet or serial data onto IP-based networks from remote locations, even in high-interference environments. The transceiver uses the MOTR-9T radio platform, a one-watt, frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) transceiver. It operates in the license-free 902-928 MHz ISM band. With the MOTR-9 radio, the user can configure over-the-air data rates up to 500 kbps. Adjustable packet sizes maximize data speed and minimize latency. The radio also incorporates selectable 128/192/256-bit AES encryption to prevent unwanted intrusion and keep data secure. Multiple wireless communication streams allow simultaneous Ethernet, I/O control, and serial ASCII device communications – all from a single radio without external gateways or additional serial wireless converters. 800-888-7388, http://www.phoenixcontact.com/usa_home
