WHY THE GE MDS SD SERIES?
The GE MDS™ Series solutions is ideal for customers using dedicated frequencies for long range communication. The industrial communications solution provides long distance communications over licensed radio bands, allowing users to interface both Ethernet and serial devices such PLCs, RTUs and meters with host monitoring and control systems.
The SD Series is the latest generation of GE 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. This model is compatible with previous generations allowing for a smooth and controlled migration for existing systems. The SD Series radios are compatible with the GE MDS™ Master Station.
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.
