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.
We recently performed extensive laboratory and field validation of compatibility between the narrow-band DTX+ Series Telemetry Radio, manufactured by Ritron Wireless Solutions and the B202.

As a result of our tests, 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 Ritron DTX+: Link to Application Note
Furthermore, in an effort to increase installation and maintenance convenience for SCADA and Telemetry applications, SCADAmetrics has developed a DTX+ mounting kit for 35mm industrial din rail.
The DTX+ is a truly excellent telemetry radio module. It is manufactured in the USA, and is available in the following frequency bands: 136-174MHz, 217-245MHz, 380-400MHz, 400-430MHz, and 450-470MHz.
Are you interested in utilizing the Ritron DTX+ and the SCADAmetrics B202 Modem in a SCADA/Telemetry application? Give us a call, and we’ll be glad to discuss your application in detail.
