Features & Benefits

Data-Linc Group researches markets and industries to assess changing needs and emerging trends in order to develop and modify our data communication product line to meet those challenges. 

As newer technologies enter the mainstream market, we evaluate their potential and determine their appropriateness for industrial use. If a new communication technology performs well, we develop products for its use in industrial applications. As a result of this on-going process and because Data-Linc avails itself of a wide range of technologies to produce modems specifically designed for the challenging industrial automation market, our modems provide numerous advantages:

Wire and wireless modems provide a data transfer interface for automation industry PCs, PLCs and SCADA system equipment.
  • Selection

Our broad line of data communication devices includes license-free, long-range, and high-speed wireless radio modems as well as fiber optic, dial-up/leased line wired modems. Our wireless modems include several interface options such as Ethernet, serial, and Digital I/O options in the 900MHz, 2.4GHz, and 5GHz bands. Data-Linc Group’s wide selection of products offers the capability to design hybrid systems to address your specific, unique industrial automation needs, from a simple single-point remote system to a complex multi-tier multi-drop SCADA system.

  • Outstanding Data Transmission Rate

Data-Linc modems provide exceptional data rates, data transmission range and the highest degree of data integrity for PC, PLC and SCADA systems, even in the harshest industrial environments. Our long-range, high-speed wireless modem SRM8200 has RF data-transmission up to 4MBps using Adapted SpreadSpectrum technology. Using OFDM technology, our high-speed modems HSM240E-Sd and HSM500E-SD have selectable RF transmission rate of 54 Mbps standard and up tp 108 Mbps in the turbo mode.  If your project requires reliable data transfer our speed and fast turn-around time ensure your data gets through— Data-Linc modems provide the industrial automation solution.

  • Exceptional Range

The FHSS and OFDM technologies utilized by Data-Linc Group ensure high performance and have set the license-free wireless modem performance standard for robust industrial data communications, providing a range capability of 40+ miles line-of-site and well over 100 miles with Repeaters when operating in the 902-928 MHz. Ranges for our 2.4-2.4835 GHz band products offer 10 milie range with omni antennas and direct line of site, and exceptionally long distances when high-gain antennas and Repeater are employed. Multiple pairs used in close proximity operate without any interference problems and the transceivers can be configured as Repeaters for multiples of the range capability– ideal features of an industrial automation solution for your toughest SCADA applications. Our products have a well-earned reputation for exceptionally robust performance even in the harshest industrial environments.

When line-of-sight cannot be obtained, for example, there is no need to seek another vendor— Data-Linc also offers wired modem solutions.

  • Data Integrity & Reliability

    Data-Linc utilizes only the most robust data communications technologies to provide exceptional resistance to potential data communications problems. This includes Advanced Adaptive SpreadSpectrum, Advanced Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS), and OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) technologies for license-free wireless data transmission. For security, all Data-Linc modems offer AES 128 or 256-bit data encryption. Most of Data-Linc modems, peripherals, and systems operate in an extended temperature range of -40°C to +85°C (-40°F to +185°F) to further assure exceptional data reliability and integrity making them the ideal choice for the automation industry’s SCADA systems that must reliably perform in the harshest of industrial environments.

  • Simple Installations 

For customer convenience and assurance that installation is trouble-free, Data-Linc also offers quality antennas and cables, making us a one-stop shop for your industrial data communication solutions. Data-Linc Group‘s products support most synchronous protocols used in typical SCADA applications and interface seamlessly with the automation industry’s major PLC SCADA equipment.
