RV-M25  Waterproof Data Radio with GPIOs for Remote Areas.

Raveon has created many data radios for reliable wireless solution.  In 2022 this OGGI version was created and produced in Raveon’s production factory.

Outside to Get General Info (OGGI)  is for Long-time Battery life and can be used in wet areas because it has a IP67 waterproof enclosure.

The M25 OGGI has waterproof  IO interface connectors on the bottom of the enclosure shown here.

There are many IO options for reading sensors and/or controlling external devices.  Read 4-20mA, voltage, or digital inputs.
Control relays, lights, pumps, valves, or whatever.

These IOs can work for SCADA systems and the MODBUS protocol is utilized in this Remote Data Radio RV-M25.

The General Purpose IOs  in the OGGI

The GPIO (General Purpose IO) interfaces on the RV-M25 can be use as slaves.
3 GPIO interfaces are available on 3 input pings.

  • Analog Inputs to measure voltage.  (configurable gain for measuring very small voltage). .
  • 4-20mA current sensor monitoring.
  • Open Drain Switched output driver.  Can switch Relays, LEDs, sirens,….
  • Digital Input for data bits or switch status.

Other IO options are already configured in the main OGGI product, that can be connected to waterproof IO terminals if you want any of these:

  • DC Voltage switched output (Battery voltage or DC input) switched out.
  • 3 pin Digital flexible IOs FIO configurable as digital Input or Output pins.

The general purpose IO feature plans are incorporate into original versions.  It is easy to make many other versions with more IO options.

  1. Let Raveon know what IO features you need, and we can add them to this OGGI.

The connector to the GPIOs is on the bottom. It can be setup on the side if that is better for your systems. The connector is a plugin version.

If the customer would like a  PCB Terminal Block on the enclosure to screw in wire connectors, this can be put onto the enclosure design.

The GPIO interfaces of the Tech Series M25 GPIO is configurable. An RS-232 interface connector is also on the lower panel.
The 2=pin (H Interface) IO version are available:

  • Digital TTL Inputs [ A ]
  • Open Drain MOSFET Output [ C ]
  • Analog voltage input [ E ]
  • 4-20mA input 120 ohm load. [ F ]

Raveon’s Data Radio in this OGGI can also enable AES Encryption so data is very secure.  You private wireless channels with data radios will be more secure than: Cellular or Wi-Fi.

In the product par number, order the IO interface number (A,B,C,,…).

On analog inputs, you can also add resistors and re-calibrate the inputs the way you want.

When our device triggers the water system it has many features:

  1. It automatically can turn it ON.
  2. Users can send MODBUS messages to it to turn it OFF or pre turn it on.
  3. A timer can be setup to have a “Maximum On-Time” the way they want.
  4. It can also send alert messages about what is happening.
  5. The RAZN can also talk Autonomously to other remote SCADA devices.
  • Remotely control IOs in other areas with other RAZNs.
  • Send text messages.
  • Turn on Lights or Alarms or other Relays.

The RV-M25 can work:  Outside to Get General Information (OGGI)

Raveon’s waterproof data radio modem has many General Purpose Inputs/outputs (GPIOs). They are well-suited for monitoring remote sensor information.

It has an embedded wireless modem, VHF and UHF radios are long-range (5-20 miles) and very rugged.
Long range data, and locally connect to the M25 or use Bluetooth to talk to it monitor General Information.

I has a Battery Inside to run everything.  It can last many days, weeks, and even many years based on how often you need messages and sensor monitoring.

The RV-M25 can operates in license free bands with selectable over-the air data rates. The 915MHz ISM version is a LoRa technology long-range “License Free” radio.
Our Smart Radio Modems can communicate with weather sensors without having to add interfaces and signal conditioning.

Use Raveon modems for long-range wireless data communications in your systems. Or you can use our SCADA and Telemetry products for wireless slaves.

The RV-M25  OGGI  is IP67 Waterproof Enclosure.

This OGGI IP67 enclosure is a great Enclosure for:

  • Outside utility devices in areas with high precipitation.
  • Scientific instruments to survive harsh weather conditions.
  • Industrial control machines that are frequently exposed to high pressure wash-downs.
  • Outdoor security system components often need quick accessibility in a variety of conditions.

A myriad of IO panel options are in this RV-M25 OGGI.

Use Raveon’s OEM radio modem modules inside your products for private long-range wireless communications with no month fees.

  • OGGI has batteries inside it that will last a long time so it can be attached to a tree, or remote device to be monitored.
  • It will periodically report at the rate you want, and can also report when emergency alerts happen.
  • Your system can send a message to the OGGI data radio to turn on a Honda Generator.
  • The emergency thresholds can be configured in the OGGI the way your system needs to monitor sensors.

Long Battery Life in the OGGI:

  • Internal Real Time Clock (RTC) that you can setup to time as you want to: (Read, transmit, receive, or operates).
  • Battery can last 2 years if you transmit General Information 5-10 miles with UHF or VHF radios.
  • Battery can last 4-5 years if you transmit General Information 1-5 miles with Raveon’s M50 License-Free 915MHz radio.
  • Battery can last 1 year if you transmit 2 times a day and monitor the General Information 10 times a day.
  • Alerts can be setup to send fast if there is a situation.
  • The battery Life is based on the On-Time for monitoring, receiving, transmitting rates.  RTC manages that. Application note AN260 explains battery life.
