LPA - Linear Power Amp Products
The LPA8V0 and LPA9V0 are L-band and S-band PAs respectively. These PAs can be used
in simplex digital or analog systems to "boost" the RF power output and increase
a system's operational range. Both units are capable of providing 1 Watt of RF power
with good linearity.
DDC - Dual Downconvertor Products
The DDC2V0 (L-band) and DDC4V0 (S-band) are dual-downconvertors. The function of
these products is to take an L-band or S-band RF input signal and covert it to UHF
frequency (300-600MHz) which is then fed to a TV tuner-type COFDM demodulator. These
downconvertors are suitable for use with 3rd party COFDM simplex systems.
The units are plug-and-play so when powered the units will automatically connect
to form a simple mesh network. If the link quality deteriorates, adaptive modulation
ensures that the best achievable data rate and range is maintained.
Our system configuration tool allows remote viewing and management of all devices
in the network.
These products use COFDM modulation techniques to provide multi-megabit data throughputs
and are capable of wirelessly transferring digital video over NLOS paths. These full
duplex IP radios allow multiple streams in either direction and for self-forming,
ad-hoc mesh networks to to be established and provide the user with NLOS operation
in challenging environments.
Each unit is a transceiver so will transmit and receive data sequenced by a token-based
TDMA protocol. This allows units to form duplex links with other units in the same
network. Point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and repeater configurations are supported.
Connection to the internet or private IP network is through a standard RJ-45 Ethernet
connector. Megapixel IP cameras can be simply directly connected to the IPM2 units
via the RJ-45 ethernet connector.
These units are not 802.11-based so do not suffer from the "hidden node" and protocol
legacy issues associated with the 802.11 standard.The units operate in the L-band
(1150-1400MHz), and as they meet the requirements of EN302-064 they can be used for
wireless video links on the UK unlicenced 1394MHz band.
IPM2 System Configurator
The IPM2 configurator is a Windows application, which can be used to configure and
manage the COFDM IPM2 devices remotely. A network connection to one 'local' device
allows all other 'remote' devices to be viewed and securely configured over-the-air.
The tool searches for linked IPM2 devices and builds a topology map of all directly
and indirectly visible devices. Detailed information is also extracted and displayed
in tabular and textual formats. Selected IPM2 devices can then be configured to set
security features and modify key operating parameters.
