Jim Mimlitz, SCADAmetrics
In 2012, SCADAmetrics introduced the B202
— an Industrial Bell 202 Modem
designed for Radio Telemetry Applications
. The B202 is designed to provide external, non-proprietary data modulation/demodulation for a wide range of popular narrowband analog telemetry radios, including models from Ritron, Tecnet/Maxon, GE/MDS, RF Neulink, and Calamp.
B202: SCADAmetrics Bell-202 Modem for Telemetry Radios.
In support of a customer project, we were recently tasked to verify compatibility between the narrow-band DL-3400 Series Telemetry Radio (manufactured by Calamp) and the B202.

As a result of our laboratory testing, we are pleased to report that compatibility was verified. Also, we have authored an Application Note that details the steps required to use the B202 with the DL-3400: Link to Application Note.
Do you have a legacy application with Calamp DL-3400’s and looking for a DM-3282 Modem replacement? Give us a call, and we’ll be glad to discuss how the B202 can serve as a drop-in replacement.
