Raveon Wireless Modems are Reliable and Secure.
Features and functions are embedded in the modem’s CPU. It is an efficient ARM SMT processor with Raveon’s efficient OS. Software is completely protected. No remote access to software, and no traditional operating.
Raveon created hardware and software in these radios, and no common Operating system is used, so no common software can be put in the radio. Hackers cannot load their software!
The over-air wireless communication protocol is unique and reliable. Bad data does not ever come out of the radio. AES encryption over-air can be turned on so other Raveon modems cannot talk to your Raveon modems.
Raveon’s Engineering team is always happing and willing to make custom radio modems for your system the way you want it to work in a custom way.
Please contact Raveon’s sales team to connect with Engineering and get a perfect radio designed and built here in America for you. Custom radios can save costs and labor in your system.

Cigorn Wireless Gateway
Raveon’s Cigorn Gateway is an easy to manage gateway/router. It is simple to deploy, data centric, and very bandwidth efficient. It dynamically assigns wireless bandwidth to operate even when 100% of the subscriber devices need to communicate. It provides a single interface to a wide-area network of radio modems.
Cigorn is optimized for applications such as meter-reading, utility-monitoring, and GPS tracking. The Cigorn Gateway is built using powerful computing hardware, feature-rich software, and sophisticated communication protocols. But because Giga-bytes of RAM are cheap, GHz processors are cheap, and Open Source Linux software is free and reliable, the Cigorn Gatway is more sophisticated than comparable systems, and yet costs very little to deploy.
Use Cigorn Gateways to consolidate all your wireless interfaces, modems, protocols, and links into one manageable device.
RV-M6 Miniature VHF modem
The ultra-miniature M6 VHF radio modem can communicate over 3-10 miles.
Very small and very low-cost OEM modem. Put inside your meters or sensors to monitor them from miles away.
Embed this low-cost miniature radio into your product to Daisy Chain your product to you network or Cellular links.
General Purpose Interfaces with SCADA and MODBUS protocol support.
Smart Radios with General Purpose Inputs and Outputs (GPIOs) can do complete solutions in remote areas. These long-range Wireless SCADA devices have many RF options, and many IO options, and many features built in. They are reliable and secure.
Wireless smart modems can do many remote terminal functions without having to buy a remote terminal unit:
Read digital inputs (Switches, sensors, …)
Read analog signals ( Voltage, temperature, current, …)
Read pulsation (Count pulses, and report vibration rates, pulse rate, pulse counts)
Output Voltage (Turn a light, pump, valve, device,.. on or off).
Switch a Relay (Switch the relay to turn AC on/off or any other electrical device).
These products have a myriad of SCADA and Telemetry features.
Remote Zone Nodes for Complete Wireless Smart Systems
RZN can switch on/off 8 AC and DC power outputs, and monitor up to four analog devices, 8 digital inputs, and 2 switch inputs.
Interfaces to it: Ethernet/IP using MODBUS-TCP, RS485 using MODBUS-RTU, and Narrow Band Wireless Modems using MODBUS.
This is a RTU and has many more IIoT and wireless features than most traditional RTUs.
RZN devices can mesh hundreds together to create complete Remote Networks to control thousands of things.
Meshing RZN to create your Smart Remote Network
The RZNs can Mesh Together. Control thousands of millions of things.
Your Master talks to one, and the RZN then meshes to as many as you would like.
Using narrow band Wireless Data Modems to mesh the network saves cost and covers 100+ square miles.
The Wireless Data Modems are an internal option to the Remote Zone Node (RZN) SCADA RTU
The internal Real Time Clock timer is accurate and hand specify as precisely at a day, hour, minute, and second to activate. To create a New Network Event with TOAA technology using MODBUS commands see Creating Modbus Master Events.
