4 Analogue Radio Network Topology Remote Station Radio Modem RTU Radio Repeater Remote Station Radio Modem RTU Master Station SCADA Radio Modem

5 Features of Analogue Radio Systems Analogue Radio SystemsAnalogue Radio Systems –Can cover large distances with repeaters –Slow over the air data rate – max 1200baud –Requires additional interface module between radio and device – Serial to FSK converter –Radio requires unique alignment for each device interface – Cannot just be swapped out on service/replacement –No management available on radio network –High maintenance on radios – routine tuning –Lower cost of deployment – analogue radios are cheaper

6 Digital Radio Network Topology Remote Station Radio Modem RTU Radio Repeater Remote Station Radio Modem RTU Master Station SCADA Radio Modem

7 Features of Digital Radio Systems Digital Radio SystemsDigital Radio Systems –Can cover large distances with repeaters –Fast over the air data rate – Typically 9600baud but can go up to 19200baud –Better sensitivity – typical 9600baud –Does not require additional interface module between radio and device – Direct Serial or Ethernet interface to the radio –Radio does not require alignment for device interface – Plug & Play for replacement/service –Comprehensive management software for radio networks – Diagnostics, configuration, interface to other environments (SCADA) –No maintenance on radios – no routine tuning –Higher cost of deployment – digital radios are more expensive
