Data Radios & Remote Irrigation Control

A dataradio is a commonly used technology in today’s society. From baby monitors to GPS tracking systems, at least one dataradio can be found in almost every home, business, and vehicle in the United States. At first, the process in which a vhf dataradio, a wireless dataradio, or other forms of data radios operate can seem complicated. However, in reality, the operational process of a dataradio is actually quite simple. In order to achieve it purpose, a dataradio must contain two components: a transmitter and a receiver. The dataradio transmitter and receiver must contain an antenna on each device. The transmitter will take the data or information and alter each of its three components into a single radio wave. These components include the frequency, amplitude, and a phase. Once converted, the single radio wave will be transmitted through the air to the dataradio receiver through its antenna. The data radio receiver accepts the single radio wave through its antenna and decodes it and converts it back into a physical form of information. This information can include written information or data, audio, images, video, and more.

 

Remote Pivot Irrigation Control

Remote pivot irrigation control is a new technology that will is expected to revolutionize the irrigation control industry. Although the process of remote pivot irrigation control sounds extremely complicated, when broken down, the process proves to be relatively simple. Users can control pivot irrigation remotely with the use of wireless data radio technology. Four basic components are needed for remote pivot irrigation control to occur: a control panel with operating switches, a wireless transmitter, a wireless receiver, and an actuator. The first process in installing a remote or wireless pivot irrigation control is to attach the control panel to the main pivot irrigation controller. Once this process has been accomplished, it is recommended that the actuator be attached on top of the control panel. A wireless receiver will then be installed in each individual pivot irrigation controller within the irrigation system.  Finally, the wireless transmitter will be installed into the computer or operating system used to manage the remote pivot irrigation control system.

One of the biggest struggles that individuals within the agriculture industry face when implementing remote pivot irrigation control or wireless irrigation systems is identifying a cost-effective and efficient manufacturer of wireless data radios and wireless data radio systems.

Data Radios

Data radios are use in a variety of different industries in order to transmit data from a human or physical asset to another user. Although the process sounds extremely complicated, it is really quite simple. In order to transmit data from one point to another, data radios and digital data radios emit a radio wave between transmitters and receivers. The transmitter of the data radio will take some sort of message or data and convert it to a single radio wave. This radio wave contains three properties: a frequency, an amplitude, and phase. In order to effectively transmit these three properties, transmitters of dataradios must alter their characteristics in a defined manner. This process is called modulation.

Once the properties in the radio waves have been modulated, they can be transmitted through the transmitter to the receiver. An antenna is located on the transmitter to assist in this process. The radio waves transmitted by data radios will then travel through the air until they reach the digital data radio receiver. Like the transmitter, the receiver of data radios also contains antennas to assist in this process. Once the radio waves are received by the receiver, they are decoded and translated into physical information. This physical information can include sound, pictures, works, video, and or other information.

Raveon Technologies manufactures top of the line, data radios and digital data radios that can be used in a variety of different industries, for a variety of different purposes.

Pivot Irrigation System

A pivot irrigation system or center pivot irrigation system is commonly used in agriculture in order to irrigate crops in a controlled and efficient manner. A pivot irrigation system assumes its name as a result of the equipment of the irrigation system rotating around on a pivot. Although this technology has existed for decades, it recently has been revolutionized with wireless data radio technology. Similar to other remote control technologies, wireless data radios have been used in order to gain remote control of pivot irrigation systems. Thus far automatic irrigation systems and remote controlled pivot irrigation systems have proven to be more accurate and efficient than traditional pivot irrigation systems. However, wireless data radios that contain pivot irrigation telemetry have proven to be even more effective and accurate.

In order to equip a pivot irrigation system for remote control access, four basic components are needed: a control panel with operating switches, a wireless transmitter, a wireless receiver, and an actuator. Most of these components come equipped in wireless data radio systems. Once all of the components have been installed, the pivot irrigation system can be controlled from a remote location. In order for this process to occur, the wireless transmitter will send a message or data instructions to the wireless receiver. Once this message or data instructions are received, the wireless receiver will convey this message to the actuator and control panel which changes the message into a specific action.

Raveon Technologies offers its consumers in the agriculture industry a variety of different products and services that have proven to be effective for remote control of pivot irrigation systems. The M7 CE Compliant UHF Data Radio is specifically designed for telemetry, wireless data, GPS, AVL, and remote control applications. If this product does not support one’s specific remote or wireless pivot irrigation system needs, Raveon Technologies also offers its current and existing customers the option of custom wireless design solutions. This service ensures that the needs of those wishing to install remote or wireless pivot irrigation systems are adequately served.

Packet Data Radios

Packet data radios and switched circuit radio data transmission can offer its users a variety of different features and benefits. Packet dataradio transmissions contain data that is grouped into packets before it is transmitted to a networking system that delivers the information to its desired source. A unique feature of packet data radios and their transmission is that the network routes each individual packet of data separately to its desired destination. This allows each packet to receive its own identify in the transmission process. As a result of this, packet dataradio transmissions have a tendency to be more efficient, more flexible, more accurate, and more advanced that switched circuit radio data transmissions. One set back with packet data radios is that they do have a tendency to be more complicated than switch circuit radio and their data transmission. However, most packet dataradios users will agree that the benefits associated with packet data radios far outweigh this set back.

Unlike packet data radios, switched circuit radio data transmission occurs when a continuous communication path is established and maintained throughout the entire data transfer process. Although there is very little wait time for the data transfer to occur, switched circuit radio data transmission have proven to be an inefficient communication resource. When compared to packet data radios and their transmission, switched circuit radio data transmission are often viewed as being less flexible and less susceptible to changes.

Raveon Technologies manufactures a variety of data radios. Unlike its competitors, the dataradios manufactured by Raveon Technologies have proven to be a cost-effective way to experience top of the line technology with exceptional performance. Not only do the company’s products exceed FCC requirements, but they also have been found to meet and exceed the need and requirements of it current and potential customers.

Data Radio Communication

Data radio communication occurs when data is communicated and transmitted over radio frequencies. In order for the data radio communication process to occur, each unit must include a transmitter, electromagnetic waves or radio frequency data communications, and a receiver. The first phase of the data radio communication process begins with the transmitter. An antenna on the transmitter will intercept data radio communications to begin its modulation process. Once the modulation process is complete, the radio frequency data communications will be converted into a single radio wave. In doing this, the frequency, amplitude, and phase of the data communication must be altered in a defined manner. The second phase of the data radio communication process is for the transmitter to emit the electromagnetic waves or radio frequency data communications into space directly or through an altered path. If the radio frequency data communications are not strong enough, they may be subjected to electromagnetic interference from artificial or natural sources. The third phase of the data radio communications process is to have the radio frequency data communications be intercepted by the receiver through the use of its antenna. Once received, the receiver will decode the data from the radio frequency and display it as a physical form. It is at the point that the data radio communication process has reached its completion.

Raveon Technologies manufactures a variety of units that can assist users in the data radio communication process. Since the mission of the company is to provide its current and potential customers with reliable wireless data products with exceptional performance and great value, it is guaranteed that all of its data radio communications technologies will exceed the expectations and needs of its customers.

Data Transceiver

A data transceiver is traditionally used in the input and output processes of data communication. For those looking to broadcast data, such as an asset location or to allow supervisory control (SCADA), serial or networked radio data transceivers can be implemented. Although the process of broadcasting data with the use of a data transceiver may seem complex, in reality, the process is relatively simply. In order to effectively broadcast data, it is essential that all data receivers are connected directly to a computer or another type of data terminal equipment device. Once this has been accomplished, the data transceiver will receive the power needed to operate through a predetermined power source. The data transceiver will then be able to receive encoded data that is transmitted to it directly. The data transceivers will then decode the data that has been transmitted to it and convey the message to the computer or other type of data terminal equipment device that it is connected to. This data can be a message for the user in the form of a specific asset location. This data can also be instructions for supervisory control which have been transmitted to the radio data transceiver.

Raveon Technologies manufactures a variety of radio data transceivers for its current and potential clients. The company’s data transceivers are high-speed, FCC certified units that are specifically designed for telemetry applications, SCADA applications, AVL, wireless data, and remote control operation.

A smart irrigation controller can be used to manage an irrigation system wirelessly from a remote location. In addition to controlling irrigation cycles during favorable weather conditions and environments, a smart irrigation controller also has the ability to sense weather conditions and environmental changes to ensure that the crops are being irrigated in the most efficient manner. Smart irrigation systems cannot be controlled and managed by computers alone, in order to implement a functional smart irrigation controller, wireless data radio technology must be utilized.

Although computers provide smart irrigation controllers with the directions and information needed in order to perform its duties, the message would not be able to be transmitted to the irrigation system without the use of wireless data radio technology. Working in combination with each other, the computer and computer software will transmit information to the smart irrigation controller via the data radio systems to allow users to manage the irrigation system wirelessly. In order to create and manage smart irrigation systems, wireless data radios and their components are used to measure the moisture within the soil, current weather conditions, and crop configuration. Real-time sensors are also be installed within the wireless data radio system in order to produce regular irrigation schedules.  Thus far, those within the agriculture industry that use smart irrigation controllers have found it useful to manage crops and irrigations schedules more effectively, reduce costs, and improve crop productivity.
