GE MDS Solutions
Critical processes demand secure and reliable networks
With secure wireless, GE MDS™ devices utilize new technologies delivering complete networking solutions and withstanding the harshest environments.
MDS™ is a world leading single-source, end-to-end wireless solution provider. From wellhead monitoring to utility substation automation, our wireless devices are packaged for industrial environments and have been rated and tested to harsh industrial specifications. Our wireless networks carry serial and IP/Ethernet traffic, plus analog and digital I/O signals connected directly to field devices and sensors, accommodating an extensive array of industrial protocols.
Long Range IP / Ethernet & Serial
The MDS SD Series are industrial wireless solutions that provide long distance communications over licensed radio bands, allowing users to interface to both Ethernet and serial devices such PLCs, RTUs and meters with host monitoring and control systems.
Managed Connected Router
The MDS Orbit platform provides a comprehensive security framework to support three unique facets of enterprise requirements: device, user and network security. Meeting the needs for functional and application flexibility and ease of use, the MDS Orbit platform of products offer multiple interface options in a compact robust package which adapts freely to indoor and outdoor environments.
Long Range High Speed Serial
Today’s SCADA and Telemetry systems transport large amounts of data at ever-increasing speeds. Additionally, the need for greater packaging flexibility has redefined the “ideal” wireless platform. The MDS TransNET™ utilizes FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) to provide reliable long range data transportation at up to 115.2 kbps. The TransNET provides transparent data communications for nearly all SCADA, Telemetry, and EFM protocols including Modbus.
The MDS iNET Series is an industrial wireless solution that provides long distance, unlicensed communications allowing users to interface with Ethernet and serial controllers. Comprised of the iNET 900 and iNET-II, the iNET Series offers the best balance of speed and range to
enable a wide variety of applications requiring higher data capabilities than typical communication systems can provide. The iNET Series combines the higher speed of Digital Transmission Systems (DTS) with the robustness of Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology.
