RE400 Transparent Radio Modem



RE400 Transparent Radio ModemRE400 is the "easiest" radio modem in RACOM product range. It gets very close to being a true Plug-and-play device, as close as ever possible in private radio networks. The minimum settings necessary are all accessible from one simple web browser screen.

RE400 works as a standard IP network bridge, i.e. it is fully transparent. Every unit can serve as the central master or as a remote terminal and it can also simultaneously operate as a repeater.

The modern digital solution of the radio part (Software Defined Radio) of the RE400 radio modem allows for a wide frequency range a SW configurable channel spacing. 
 

  • 400 MHz
  • 6.25, 12.5, 25 kHz
  • 11 kbps / 25 kHz
  • 2W
  • 1x ETH, 1x RS232
  • PoE or 10 – 30 V DC
  • Transparent bridge
  • Plug and play

Applications

  • Polling type networks
  • Water
  • Oil & Gas
  • Electricity
  • Smart grid POS &ATM
  • Lottery
  • Weather

Fully transparent

  • Standard IP network bridge functionality is implemented in the RE400 radio modem, i.e. the ETH interfaces of all the radiomodems in a network are interconnected according to bridge principles.
  • When a COM interface is used, every frame received over a COM is simply broadcast to COM interfaces of all units in the network.

 Easy to configure and maintain

  • Web interface
  • All configuration parameters within one page
  • Basic IP knowledge is sufficient
  • CLI via SSH

Security

  • Licensed radio bands
  • FEC, interleaving, proprietary data compression
  • CRC32 data integrity control on Radio channel
  • Password-protected access, https web interface

Coverage

  • 400 MHz band
  • Line ofsight is not required
  • Carrier output power adjustable 0,5 or 2W
  • Exceptional data sensitivity
  • High resistance to multipath propagation and interference
  • Any unit can work simultaneously as a repeater

Reliability

  • Every single unit tested in a climatic chamber as well as in real traffic
  • Military or industrial components
  • Industrial rugged die-cast aluminum case 

Others

  • Local and remote diagnostics
  • DIN rail mounting
  • L-bracket, flat-bracket, direct mounting
  • CE approval
