Many of the characteristic values for the radio modules, such as transmission power, sensitivity and maximum permissible input power have either lower tolerances or are more strictly specified than the mandatory standards require. This is intended to ensure maximum reliability and availability in a demanding railway environment. The result of this design approach is a continuous, reliable radio performance which can be relied on and helps the railway operator to reduce maintenance costs substantially. Funkwerk contributes to the relevant standards committees, and is therefore in a position to offer state-of-the-art radio modules at all times.
Reliable – Functional
As a link between the GSM-R network and mobile train radio devices, the MTs is a mobile termination in accordance with GSM Phase 2+ with GSM-R and ASCI extensions. The module is operated within the GSM-R frequency range with a maximum transmitted power of 8W.
Analogue radio modules
The ARM 26 is an analogue radio module for the Cab Radio MESA 26. It allows the operational communication in analogue radio systems in the frequency bands: 70 cm (according to UIC 751-3) and 2 m
Mobile GSMR modem f.locX®
The f.locX® is a mobile GSM-R modem with battery, Bluetooth interface and status indicators.
This modem is coupled to mobile devices via a low-power Bluetooth 4.1 and can be used in the GSM-R and GSM network for data transmission, voice communication and SMS. The f.locX will be used together with an Android operating system is required, e.g. commercially available smart phones or tablets.
