Freewave IO Radio

Freewave radios are designed for seamless integration into networks that require reliable link performance and support low power, long range machine-to-machine communications. Freewave radios transfer data in noisy, challenging environments covering over 60+ mile distances. By utilizing Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology, Freewave provides an alternative to expensive Wi-Fi bandwidth, cellular or fiber.

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.

FGR2-IO Series radios operate in the unlicensed 900 MHz spectrum and are available as a standalone board-level or enclosed device, as well as an expandable format to meet any wireless IO needs. All models can operate in one of two modes: Wire Replacement or Modbus. For wireless replacement mode, FGR2-IOS and FGR2-IOE can operate as a slave connected to an FGRIO-M master. In Modbus mode, all radios can be directly connected as an IO peripheral to a SCADA network. FGR2-IO Series radios can operate up to 60 miles with clear line of sight with the ability to extend through Endpoint/Repeater while the Modbus Gateway can be any FGR Series radio. The FGR2-IO Series radios offer error free communication utilizing 32-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) with automatic retransmissions. They are Class I, Division 2 certified for operating in the temperature range of -40 degrees Celsius to 75 degrees Celsius and are ideal for solar power applications.

FreeWave 2.4 GHz Slave Radio, 115K Over the Air Data Rate, Spread Spectrum wireless data transceiver, 6-30 volts with IO Capability, Range 2 miles, Sensitivity -105 dBm for BER 10 -6, Operating temp -40 F-167 F. RS232/RS485 switchable interface, SMA, Class I Div 2. The I2-IOS can operate on one of two modes, Modbus or Wire Replacement. In Modbus mode, it connects to an I/O signal in a SCADA network. In Wire Replacement mode, the I2-IOS operates as a slave liked to a I2-IOM master radio for transport and reconstruction of analog, digital and power signals, eliminating the need for associated buried wiring (PLC requires no altered programming). As Wire Replacement you can have up to 4 slave radios for each master. In a Modbus network you can have up to 65, 535 slaves in a network.
