    Product Description

    The MDS™ SD Series are industrial wireless solutions that provide long distance communications over licensed radio bands, allowing users to interface to both Ethernet and serial devices such PLCs, RTUs and meters with host monitoring and control systems.

    The SD Series is the latest generation of MDS licensed narrowband wireless devices providing exceptional communication performance and reliability to meet demands for IP/Ethernet services as well as support for multiple devices and host systems. The SD is compatible with previous generations allowing for a smooth and controlled migration for existing systems. The SD Series radios are compatible with the MDS Master Station.

    Long Range Communications

    The MDS SD Series of industrial-strength radios offer secure, reliable, long distance transmission of data for your mission critical applications. The SD Series combines 5 Watt transmit power and exceptional receive sensitivity to support wide coverage areas and maximum performance when difficult terrain or obstructions such as trees and buildings limit the effectiveness of other wireless devices. The SD Series operates in the 100 MHz(SD1), 200 MHz (SD2), 400 MHz (SD4) and 900 MHz (SD9) frequencies and allows users to select the channel size and modulation option best suited to their unique requirements. The combination of these features results in the ideal data acquisition product for error free, long distance communication.

    Backward Compatibility

    MDS SD Series radios can be directly added to existing MDS x710 and x790 systems, providing both "drop-in" compatibility for expansions and replacements, and adding Ethernet support. Backward compatibility preserves your investment and allows a smooth transition from a serial based SCADA infrastructure to IP/Ethernet without disrupting day-to-day operations.
