RV-M25  Waterproof Data Radio with Flexible IOs 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.

The RV-M25 does: Outside to Get General Info (OGGI). It 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, to monitor sensors Outside.

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.

The OGGI device can autonomously transmit a message with all IO terminal data information to you or your system.
The message transmitted can be configured in many different ways. Text or MODBUS are the popular version and Raveon can add any other message format you need.

The rates of Message Transmit are configurable.  Once a day, twice a day, Once every Hour, or twice an hour are easy to setup. Commands are used to setup OGGI configurable features.

The OGGI has a USB interface connector on it. When you plug a USB into it, it turns on and then all commands can be executed to the OGGI from USB interface.
The data from the USB into the OGGI can also be transmitted out the data radio it you want it to do that.

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

This OGGI has a Real Time Clock to trigger it On and off, at any rate you want. This makes the battery last long, and when RTC triggers ON, the data radio sends you the status info many miles away. away.

The Flexible Dedicated Interfaces IOs are on the OGGI

The dedicated interfaces on the RV-M25 can be used as slaves.
Flexible Dedicated Interfaces(FDI) are available on input pings. Raveon sets up the FDI the way you want it to work

  • Analog Inputs to measure voltage.  (configurable gain for measuring very small voltage). .
  • 4-20mA current sensor monitoring. 120 ohm resistor, and it can be changed if you want 250 ohm or other resistor.
  • Open Drain Switched output driver.  Can switch Relays, LEDs, sirens,….

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.
  2. Let Raveon know what resistors, transmission rates, frequency, RF power.
  3. Or let Raveon know any other changes you need for your system with this OGGI. It is a new modern design.

The connector to the IOs is on the bottom of the OGGI. 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 IO is a Flexible Dedicated Interfaces (FDI) of the RV-M25 is configurable. A USB interface connector is also on the enclosure.
IO terminal version are dedicated on different Versions:

This top SCADA system leverages universal connectivity allowing you to connect to any data in your system from anywhere.
The dedicated IO pins are committed to analog or digital. Different versions have different dedicated interfaces.

The RV-M25-X part number specifies the version in X. X shown here in this list [_] right here:

  • [A] 2 FDI IOs can be E or F: (F): 4-20mA sensor monitor, (E) Analog voltage input,
  • [B] 1 FDI IO can be E or F: (F): 4-20mA sensor monitor, (E) Analog voltage input,
  • [C] 3 FIO can be A or B:  (A):Digital Input,  (B): Digital Output.
  • [D] 1 IO pins D, (D): DC Switched Voltage Output from DC in.
  • [E] 1 IO Analog voltage input E. (E): Voltage input is measured and monitored.
  • [F] 7 IO pins (3 FIO), (3 FDI), (1 SV).  12 pin IO connector.

The Flexible IO (FIO) pins can be digital inputs or outputs.  The analog inputs can monitor voltage (E) or monitor current draw (F).
The Switched Voltage (SV) can take voltage input on a pin and switch the output pin on or off based on your commands or settings.
The flexible dedicated interfaces FDI can do analog E,F modes. Specify the IO node your system wants. The device is setup in your desired mode and the OGGI User Manual explains how mechanically the mode can easily be changed.

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, D, E, F,…).
If you ever need a new custom IO terminal feature, contact Raveon for their Engineering team to create a perfect IO for your system.

On analog inputs, you can also add resistors and re-calibrate the inputs the way you want to monitor Large signals or small signals.

OGGI Message Features:

The RV-M25 OGGI can automatically turn on at the rate you want, and RF transmit IO status messages. You can configure the OGGI how many times a Day it should power on and send a message.
There are commands to configure time to send, number of messages per day, time between messages, and the message format to send. There are many message formats:

  • OGGI can send TEXT messages to clearly get the info to anyone to see. All IO status messages are clear for people to see IO status.
  • OGGI can send MODBUS messages to have SCADA Modbus devices monitor the IO terminals.
  • OGGI can also turn on Lights or Alarms or other Relays with a MOSFET output if you need to do that.
  • Any message format your system needs, Raveon can add that format to this OGGI product.
