General Requirements

The
wireless device
must comply with all of the following:


a)

Radio Operations

The Ethernet radio must be capable of operating as a IP router or as
an IP bridge


b)

10
-
30 VDC Operations

The radio must be capable of meeting advertised speciation while operating on any DC input voltage
between 10 and 30 volts.


c)

Multi
-
Speed Operation

Radio
must be capable of
multispeed configuration when used with a Base
Station that is enabled as a

rate
-
controller
’. The remote device becomes a ‘rate follower’. T
he rate
-
controller
can be configured to
talk at different over
-
the
-
air data rates for each remote Viper. This allows the user to uniquely control
the data rate fo
r each RF link in the system from the Base Station web pages. The user can program RF
links with strong signal strength to communicate at fast data rates and RF links with low signal strength
can be programmed to communicate at more robust, slower data rat
es
.
Even if data rates vary from
Viper to Viper, every Viper in the network must be programmed with the same bandwidth.


d)

Mesh Network
ing

While operating in router mode the radio mus
t be capable of listening to it
s neighbor sites and logging
their IP addre
sses and RSSI (receive signal strength indication) levels as possible alternative routes
shoul
d the primary route break down.




3


e)

In router mode new remote site radios must be capable of listening to the polling system’s traffic and
automatically selecting
its

own IP address AND
choose

a primary and secondary route to the polling
master or designated IP address


f)

es in another city, county, province or state


g)

PLC/RTU Programming

In router mode the radio must provide the user the capability to over
-
the
-
air program the ladder logic of
any remote site PLC or RTU from any computer inside or outside the SCADA network


h)

E
xtending the Coverage Area

In router mode the user must be capable of over
-
the
-

“store
-
and
-
forward site” in order to extend coverage to a new remote site or to improve a route or path
that has begun having commun
ications errors.


1.

When operating as store
-
and
-
forward site the router radio must be capable of also operating as
a remote site gathering data from a PLC or RTU and reporting it back to the master when
requested to do so.

2.


When operating as a store
-
and
-
for
ward site, the user must have the ability to address multiple
remote sites that now exist as a separate RF network that is reporting to the store
-
and
-
forward
site.


i)

Multiple Store
-
and
-
Forward sites:

The IP router network must be capable of operating with
multiple store
-
and
-
forward sites, all within the
same RF footprint or SCADA network.


j)

Channel Bandwidth

T
he radio must be over
-
the
-
air user selectable to 6.25 kHz

,
25

kHz

or 50 kHz


k)

Firmware Upgrades

I
n router mode the user must ha
ve the ability to over
-
the
-
air upgrade the firmware of any radio in the
system


l)

Over
-
The
-
Air Baud Rates

T
he radio must be over
-
the
-
air user selectable to
up to 12

kbps @ 6.25 kHz channel spacing;
32

kbps @
12.5 kHz channel spacing;
64

kbps @ 25 kHz channel spacing

128 kbps @ 50 KHz


m)

Embedded Web Server


4


The user must be capable of over
-
the
-
air radio setup, troubleshooting and preventative maintenanc
e via
the user’s PC web browser


n)

User Ping Test

The user must be capable of over
-
the
-
air
sending and receiving an ICMP packet (echo request) to any
radio located in the network. Ping tests verify that a RF Path exists.


o)

3 Active Ports

The radio must have three active ports that can
sequentially
manage the transfer of
Ethernet and serial
data m
essages from three
(2 serial, 1 Ethernet)
PLC’s or RTU’s.


p)

Extreme Temperature Environments

Optional cooling fan


q)

Dual antenna Ports

O
ptional dual antenna ports for repeaters or external RF filters


r)

The radio must support the indust
ry standard AES 128
-
bit data encryption at ALL three (two serial & on
e
Ethernet) of its active ports


s)

The radio
must be user password protected


t)

The user must be capable of over
-
the
-
air programming the radio to any one or more o
f the 32 diff
erent
transmit/receive channels


u)
