Wireless communication has revolutionized industrial communications and radio modems are on the forefront of the revolution.
Industrial radio modems encode, transmit and decode the data. They use radio waves for data transmission. And this medium of transmission gives user a lot of advantage over the wired data transfer.
How industrial radio modems operate?
Radio models operate in a similar fashion to your radio station. There are three stages of communication:
Most radio modems have RS232, RS485 or RS422 ports for communicating with the devices they are connected with.
What are applications of radio modem?
Applications of radio modems are limited just by imagination. Today radio modems are used in video security applications to mining applications and from oil and gas platforms to sports. Here are some examples, which can help you visualize how you can make best use of radio modem technology:
Selecting the right radio modem
Though radio modems offer a great promise to the industrial world, they also come with technical limitations. The prominent factors affecting the performance of radio modems include:
