A new licensed radio for North America from FreeWave Technologies provides a solution for rugged and heavily treed terrain applications in oil and gas, water/wastewater, electric and municipality markets. The LRS455 complements FreeWave’s other licensed radios, the LRS-760 and LRS-140. It is said to provide a faster data rate and more noise immunity than competitive offerings, and its propagation characteristics at 430-470 MHz at 2 watts are significantly better than higher frequencies at 1 watt, making the LRS455 radio ideal for areas with heavy interference. Field tests also show that the LRS455 performs at a four- to five-times greater range than competitive offerings. The unit’s 70 mile range with clear line of sight can be extended through a repeater. It features 19200 bps throughput on a 12.5 kHz channel. The LRS455 provides system and network management capabilities through FreeWave Tool Suite, an integrated software platform. Users can select whatever range they wish across the 435-470 MHz spectrum. Unit is available for immediate shipment and is available in board level or enclosed formats.
