SpeedNet™ ME Mesh End-Point Radio
Provides communication end point for SCADA devices
Connecting to S&C’s SpeedNet Radio mesh network, these radios offer high message rates, low latency, and enable advanced distribution automation
Connectivity for End Nodes
A SpeedNet ME Mesh End-Point Radio is well suited for the communication needs of end-node SCADA devices. It is a non-routing radio and does not participate in building the mesh network.
Powerful Multi-Level Security
SpeedNet ME Radio provides frequency-hopping spread-spectrum transmission that is inherently difficult to intercept and jam. Its 10-millisecond dwell time on a particular frequency is 60 times faster than other systems, making each transmission a very small target for jamming, and much less susceptible to interference. Address filtering denies network access to unauthorized radios, and 128-bit encryption protects mission-critical data.
SpeedNet ME Radio can transmit or receive 300 bytes to/from next-hop adjacent neighbors in 30 milliseconds, which is ideal for a DNP 3.0 SCADA data packet size of 300 bytes.
S&C’s experienced staff has the expertise to perform the necessary up-front topographical analysis and on-site testing of the communication infrastructure. And S&C’s can provide installation and commissioning of the equipment, as well as ongoing maintenance.
