Data-Linc introduced the serial member of the PlantLinc Family, developed for short-range in-plant to medium-range installations, in direct response to customer requests for a modem that could replace less reliable technologies with the same robust FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) data transfer method as our premium SRM Family, but at a lower, short-range-competitive price. The PlantLinc Family’s PLR modems now offer the same key SRM wireless serial features in the 900 MHz license-free band for data transfer up to five miles (8 km) with line-of-sight, farther with Repeaters.

Data-Linc’s robust PLR6030 modem allows customers to implement a proprietary wireless network in high RFI/EMI and crowded band environments (areas of existing wireless infrastructure) with confidence in unsurpassed data communication integrity, including areas of existing wireless infrastructure.

The PLR6030 is software configurable and has a separate DB9 serial port for independent access to configuration and diagnostic software. For customer convenience and first-line diagnostics, the front panel includes LED status lights that provide direct access to critical data communication information.

As with all members of the PLR Family of license-free radio modems, the PLR6030 supports both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint network topologies with a virtually unlimited number of radios. Each modem can be individually configured as Master, Remote, Repeater or Repeater/Remote using the included software. Additionally, the PLR6030 provides superior security through AES-256 encryption.
The combination of features and benefits supplied by the PLR6030 serial modem continues to support Data-Linc’s well-earned reputation for superior reliability, versatility and performance for wireless industrial data communication. These competitively priced modems provide maximum flexibility in network design both inside and outside the plant.

*Greater range in optimal conditions with clear line-of-sight, Repeaters and/or higher gain antennas.

LincViewTM Diagnostic Software

Data-Linc Group’s LincViewTM Diagnostic Software provides an optional RF network diagnostics management tool for any of the wireless stand-alone modems in the SRM, CIX and PLR Families. LincView offers RF network monitoring and maintenance from your Master location. Key parameters at a remote location can be monitored or changed with a few simple keystrokes. This allows technicians to track the actual data path to the Master, view every SRM, CIX or PLR network link in miles or kilometers and monitor key parameters such as signal or noise level, voltage and much more. LincView even provides visual trend analysis of packet errors, supply voltage levels and radio temperature.
