RadioManager

Raveon's RadioManager  is a very versitile Windows XP/Vista/7/8 application used to configure Raveon's data radio products, test communications, log data, and assist with developing OEM appliactions. It is compatible with all Raveon radio models, and provides configuration management, as well as programming assistance, diagnostic information, and a helpful "band scope" feature.

RadioManager features:

  • Supports all Raveon Radios  (M3, M5, M7, M8, Atlas, and M7 GX series)
  • Built-in Terminal software for COM and Telnet communications
  • Simplified editing of a radio's configuration
  • Configurations may be stored to a file or retrieved from a file
  • Intelligent parameter verification to help configure technical parameters
  • USe COM ports, Telnet client connections, or Telnet server
  • Able to log data communications to a computer file
  • WMX toolkit for users using WMX protocol.

  • Band Scope feature graphically displays on and off channel signal levels
  • Display handshaking line status in real-time
  • Communication Logger for storing data to log files
  • Bit/Packet Error Rate Test feature

RadioManager is used to configure all of Raveon's data radio products.  The graphical interface makes configuring the radio very easy.  Parameters are grouped together, and only parameters which were edited by the user are uploaded to the radio.  This reduces the risk of unintentional changes to a parameter.

RadioManager's "Band Scope" feature is a handy tool for site analysis.  It displays activity on nearby channels, which can be helpful to the field technician or the site planner.  Adjacent and on-channel interference can also be identified.
