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 analog telemetry radios, including models from Tecnet/Maxon, GE/MDS, Ritron, and RF Neulink, and Calamp.

In support of a customer project, we were recently tasked to verify compatibility between the TM-2000 and TM-8000 Series Mobile Radios (manufactured by Tecnet International) and the B202.  Mobile radios can be a useful alternative to telemetry radios in situations where there is a requirement for increased duty-cycle, increased RF power, or audio feedback.

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 TM-2102:  Link to Application Note.

Are you interested in utilizing the Tecnet TM-2100 Series Mobile Radio 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.
