MDS Transnet Radio

GE’s MDS is an end-to-end industrial wireless communication provider which carries serial and IP/Ethernet traffic, as well as analog and digital I/O signals connected to field sensors and devices, accommodating an extensive variety of industrial protocols. GE’s MDS wireless radios have been rated and tested to harsh specifications and operate over licensed and unlicensed narrowband communication in a variety of frequencies.

Frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) is wireless technology that transmits radio signals by rapidly changing the carrier frequency among many distinct frequencies in a large spectral band. The frequency band is divided into sub-bands and signals “hop” their carrier frequencies among the sub-bands in a predetermined order. The “hopping” frequencies are difficult to intercept and interference at a specific frequency will only last a short time.

MDS TransNET radios provide transparent data communications for nearly all SCADA, EFM and Telemetry protocols including Modbus and DNP3. They operate up to 30 miles with 115.2 Kbps throughput. Any TransNET radio may be configured as a repeater to extend the operating range of the network. Multiple repeaters may exist at any level of the network preventing single radio failure from disabling the entire network. TransNET radios provide forward error correction and CRC/ARQ multiple re-sends and proprietary hopping algorithm among 128 channels. They are CSA Class I, Division 2 approved for hazardous locations and operate in temperatures from -40 degrees Celsius to 70 degrees Celsius.
