Industrial Frequency Hopping 900 MHz Ethernet (FCC)


Discontinued: No new product for sale. More Info
Recommended replacements: RLX2-IFH9E

The Industrial Frequency Hopping 900 MHz Ethernet provides powerful and secure wireless Ethernet communications and is well suited for demanding, long-range (up to 30+ miles) SCADA and other Ethernet applications in tough environments. Operating in the license-free 900 MHz band, the RadioLinx Industrial Frequency Hopping 900 MHz Ethernet penetrates foliage and walls / ceilings better than higher frequency radios. The RLX-IFH9E is user configurable as a master, repeater and remote radio and employs the 128 bit AES encryption algorithm approved by the United States government for top secret information.

Industrial Frequency Hopping 900 MHz Ethernet radios are quickly and easily configured using the included, graphical ControlScape software. An OPC server software is also included and allows users to monitor radio network health with any OPC client based HMI software.
