MULTIHOP ETHERNET DATA RADIO
Posted On: 15 February 2015 | By:IPCS

The MultiHop Ethernet Data Radio system provides extremely reliable communication in large plants, over long distances, or through difficult terrain. A network can easily cover many square miles and has a raw bit rate of 300Kbps. Master, Repeater, and Slave Radios All radios can be configured as a master, repeater, or slave radio. Master Radio: Every network has only one master radio and all data is routed to or from the master. Because of this, the network will have better throughput if the master radio is connected to the PLC or HMI that generates the most data traffic.
Repeater Radio: Repeater radios are slaves that also repeat. Although it is possible to use many repeaters in a network, it is usually better to carefully define only a few devices as repeaters to help the network form faster and result in fewer repeated messages. Repeating a message many times unnecessarily slows down the network. Repeater radios should be stationary and always on; a moving or powered off repeater causes a slight delay in communications while the network reforms through other repeaters.

REPLACING THE ETHERNET CABLES WITH THE MULTIHOP ETHERNET RADIOS
1. Remove the Ethernet cables from the switch and plug the cables into two MultiHop Ethernet Data Radios placed at least 6 feet apart. Do not change the IP address of the radios. They will relay all Ethernet traffic by default. Think of them as simple cable replacements.
