AW200

VHF 220 MHz to 235 MHz

2 W UHF Radio Transceiver with Built-in wireless link Monitoring and Management Tools:

  • 11 miles (18 km) Maximum Distance Range
  • Data Speed over the air 38400 bps at 25 kHz, 19200 bps at 12.5 kHz, and 9600 bps at 6.25 kHz
  • Programmable Output Power (30mW to 2W)
  • Advanced Forward Error Correction (FEC)
  • Serial port RS-232
  • Data Speed over the serial port 9600 to 115200 bps
  • Testing, monitoring and control of the unit over the air
  • AlphaWave SuperScan® - automatic search and select for best frequency/channel

The AW200 radio transceiver provides a high-speed Point-to-Point and Point-to-Multipoint wireless data transfer at up to 38.4 kbps. AW200 firmware supports user selectable modulation techniques (GMSK, 4FSK, DBPSK, DQPSK, D8PSK, or D16QAM), which allows the user to achieve the highest data speed for a given range (up to 11 miles/18 km). It also includes a selectable error correction, which improves the functioning of the radio modem under interference.

The unmatched features of AW200 include data scrambling, frequency hopping, user selectable transmit output power level, low power consumption sleep modes, autoscanning for base and plug-and-play installation for remote terminals.

AW200 supports two separate Application Data and Maintenance modes of single RS232 serial port.

The built-in software tools provide the wireless link testing, unit’s status and error statistics monitoring as well as unit’s settings change over the air. The firmware of the AW200 radio modem resides in a flash memory. The updating of the radio modem programs is entirely software-based. The flash memory is re-programmable through an RS232 interface or over the air.
