Configuring the ESTeem Model 192 for Narrowband Operation

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has mandated that by January 1, 2013, all licensees and users of radio systems operating in the VHF 150 – 174 MHz and the UHF 450 – 512 MHz portions of the of the radio spectrum, convert their systems and radios so that they are operating on 12.5 kHz rather than the current wideband 25 kHz channels. This mandate has been put into place to bring about spectrum efficiency and as a result, to create additional channels to accommodate the demand of public safety and local government users.

The FCC has mandated that all licensees using wideband, 25 kHz radio systems migrate to narrowband, 12.5 kHz channels by January 1, 2013.  Under the current FCC ruling, if you are licensee, operate, or use a system in the affected portion of the spectrum, you must comply with this FCC mandate. Licensees that do not meet that deadline face the loss of their licenses and the loss of communication capabilities.

All ESTeem Model 192 products are compatible with the narrowband requirements but need to be configured for narrowband operation.  The following documentation and update files are provided:

Model 192C, 450-470 MHz, Narrow Band Serial, 19200 bps

The ESTeem Model 192C uses the industry standard RS-232C, RS-422 and RS-485 asynchronous communications ports to give the user a new dimension to “Wireless Networking” in industrial, federal and public safety applications. The 192C uses UHF narrow band, packet burst, frequency agile, radios allow the user to create a “Radio Area Network” of up to 255 users on a single frequency.

Model 192CHP, 450-470 MHz, Narrow Band Serial, 19200 bps

The ESTeem Model 192CHP uses the industry standard RS-232C, RS-422 and RS-485 asynchronous communications ports to give the user a new dimension to “Wireless Networking” in industrial, federal and public safety applications. The 192CHP uses high power UHF narrow band, packet burst, frequency agile, radios allow the user to create a “Radio Area Network” of up to 255 users on a single frequency.

Model 192M, 150-174 MHz, Narrow Band Serial, 19200 bps

The ESTeem Model 192F uses the industry standard RS-232C, RS-422 and RS-485 asynchronous communications ports to give the user a new dimension to “Wireless Networking” in industrial, federal and public safety applications. The 192F uses narrow band, packet burst, frequency agile, radios allow the user to create a “Radio Area Network” of up to 255 users on a single frequency.

Model 192E, 2.4GHz, 802.11b, Ethernet, Spead Spectrum

Click to zoom

The ESTeem Model 192E is the first wireless Ethernet product to be based on the Wireless LAN (802.11b) standard and specifically designed for the rigors of industrial applications. The Model 192E can provide 11Mbps of communication rate over distances of 7 miles. The distance can be increased by the use of repeater sites, so speed does not have to be sacrificed for distance.

Model 192S, 2.4 GHz, Serial, Spread Spectrum, 1 Watt

Click to zoom

The ESTeem Model 192S provided a high-speed serial (RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485) communication network without the need to obtain a FCC license. The 192S could be used to link remote industrial controllers in SCADA or mobile applications over distances of 10 miles at a data rate of 171,000 bps. Greater ranges are possible by using the integrated repeating capability where any site in the network can be used as a repeater.

Model 192V, 72-73 MHz, Narrow Band Serial, 19200 bps

Click to zoom

The ESTeem Model 192V provided licensed serial (RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485) communication over long distances or difficult indoor structures. The licensed VHF radio modem could be used to link remote industrial controllers in SCADA or mobile applications to line of sight (LOS) distances of 5 miles or greater with the internal repeating feature.

Model 95, 72-73 MHz, Narrow Band Serial, 9600 bps

Click to zoom

The ESTeem Model 95 provided licensed serial (RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485) communication over long distances or difficult indoor structures. The licensed VHF radio modem could be used to link remote industrial controllers in SCADA or mobile applications to line of sight (LOS) distances of 5 miles or greater with the internal repeating feature.

Model 96F, 400-420 MHz, Narrow Band Serial, 9600 bps

The ESTeem Model 96F provided licensed serial (RS-232 and RS-422) communication over long distances or difficult indoor structures. The licensed federal UHF radio modem could be used to link remote industrial controllers in SCADA or mobile applications to line of sight (LOS) distances of 10 miles or greater with the internal repeating feature.

Model 96C, 450-470 MHz, Narrow Band Serial, 9600 bps

The ESTeem Model 96C provided licensed serial (RS-232 and RS-422) communication over long distances or difficult indoor structures. The licensed UHF radio modem could be used to link remote industrial controllers in SCADA or mobile applications to line of sight (LOS) distances of 10 miles or greater with the internal repeating feature.
