Suited for rugged and heavily treed applications in oil and gas, water/wastewater, electric, and municipality markets, the LSR455 from FreeWave Technologies, Boulder, CO, operates in the 430–470 MHz spectrum, provides 19,200 bps throughput on a 12.5 kHz channel, and has a range of 70 miles with clear LOS. Available in board-level or enclosed formats, the radio is suited for long-distance SCADA applications located within rough terrain or heavy tree coverage. Users can select whatever range they wish across the 430–470 MHz spectrum. Propagation characteristics at 430–470 MHz at 2 W are better than higher frequencies at 1 W. Software provides advanced system and network management capabilities.
