Unlock your digital radio infrastructure to transport your telemetry data. Once the 'DataBox' is connected on the DB-9 rear panel of your DM4400e radio, the Process & Control data is transported over the VHF/UHF link. The serial data IEC 60870-5-101 protocol is transported over a DMR (Mototrbo) radio link which enables a seemless scada integration into your power grid.
The data throughput using a IEC101-Mototrbo radio link is roughly x10 times lower than using a serial cable connection. These perfomances will surely vary depending on the quality of the radio link but are perfectly suited for Power Grid Monitoring operations.
The following set-up unlocks your digital radio network to transfer metering data via VHF/UHF at no additional infrastructure cost.
A Mototrbo data channel is a low speed data pipe with an efficient over air data transfer rate of 1200 bps. It is suitable for transmission of simple telemetry reporting such as (level-meter values, GPS location coordinates or alarms & messages). The datathroughput of a Mototrbo radio channel will vary based on the channel configuration, eg simplex, data revert, or trunking. The data messages are 322 bytes including a 16-byte mototrbo header. A message takes approximately 2.14 seconds to transmit. For this very reason, Mototrbo telemetry applications use a 3-second updating cycle.
