Product Description

DATA-LINC’s PLR6130 serial modem is designed to cater to short-range in-plant to medium-range installations.

Our PlantLinc Family’s ‘PLR’ modems offer the same key features as the long-range SRM modems in the 2.4GHz band to address the need for reliable data transfer solutions at a competitive price point for shorter-range scenarios.

Advanced FHSS Technology:

  • Utilizes robust Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) data transfer method, akin to our premium SRM Family.

Extended Reach:

  • Provides an impressive data transfer range of up to 2 miles (3.2 km) with line-of-sight, extendable with Repeaters.

Unsurpassed Data Integrity:

  • Thrives in high RFI/EMI environments, ensuring unmatched data communication integrity, especially in areas with existing wireless infrastructure.

Configurability and Diagnostics:

  • Includes Configuration software and a separate DB9 serial port for independent configuration and diagnostic software access.
  • LED status lights on the front panel facilitate convenient access to critical data communication information for quick diagnostics.

Security Matters:

  • Ensures the confidentiality and integrity of your data with AES-256 encryption.

Network Flexibility:

  • Supports both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint network topologies with an unlimited number of radios.
  • Configure each modem as Master, Remote, Repeater, or Repeater/Remote using the included software.

Reliability Redefined:

  • Maintains Data-Linc’s reputation for superior reliability, versatility, and performance in wireless industrial data communication.

Maximum Flexibility:

  • Offers maximum flexibility in network design both inside and outside the plant, providing tailored solutions for specific needs.

*Greater range is achievable in optimal conditions with clear line-of-sight, Repeaters, and/or higher gain antennas. For detailed specifications, refer to our datasheet.
