Mounting Wireless Radios Outdoors Offers Benefits

By |March 2nd, 2020|Best Practices|Comments Off on Mounting Wireless Radios Outdoors Offers Benefits

For years now, we’ve recommended outdoor mounting for our industrial wireless radios. The benefits are both operational and financial. Outdoor mounting allows the radio to be placed close to the antenna. In fact, in some applications, the antenna can be directly attached to the radio. The proximity reduces the distance between the radio and the antenna, decreasing the signal [...]

Data Rate, Throughput and Your Ethernet Radios

By |September 23rd, 2019|Best Practices, Ethernet Radios|Comments Off on Data Rate, Throughput and Your Ethernet Radios

Data rate vs. throughput is an important consideration when evaluating Ethernet radios. Data rate is the total amount of data that can be transmitted from one radio to the other, but it only tells part of the story. The meat of the story is represented by a radio’s throughput – the amount of your information that can actually be transmitted by the radio. [...]

Network Monitoring Made Simple

By |August 26th, 2019|Uncategorized|Comments Off on Network Monitoring Made Simple

Network monitoring can be inconvenient, to say the least. It normally requires different programs or software to access the important information needed to assess the network’s overall health. There are times when you need to know signal strength, data rate and other critical indications of your network’s performance without jumping through a lot of hoops. Our Horizon series of industrial wireless radios solves that problem by collecting and providing all crucial network data in Modbus TCP, one of the most commonly used industrial protocols. [...]
