Electronic Systems Technology (News - Alert), doing business under the name, ESTeem Wireless Modems, has announced a new modem that complies with the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) narrow band standard.
The ESTeem 210M is intended for industrial, public safety and government markets operating over difficult terrain, including water, sewage treatment and oil industries and other utilities. It operates in the 150 to 170 Mhz ranges, providing both Ethernet and serial interfaces to industrial equipment. It uses Selectable Quadrature Amplitude Modulation to transmit data at 54 Kbps in narrow band channels.
“Modulation to provide data rates up to 54 Kbps in the narrow band licensed channels.” The ESTeem 210M also incorporates the Self-Healing MESH Network capabilities previously unavailable in narrow band licensed radios," EST president Tom Kircher said, in a statement.
The MESH network will allow clients to roam from modem to modem without interrupting their connection. The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) allows administrators to configure and troubleshoot the modem and other network equipment remotely. The modem can be configured to serve as a master, a MESH repeater, remote or mobile client.
Electronic Systems Technology also recently appointed a new manager of finance and administration. Mike Eller was appointed in office after Jon Correlo, vice president of finance/administration and directory of the company, resigned after serving as VP of finance since 2002.
The company also released its second quarter financial results in August. Sales were $416,931, up from $312,384 at the same time in 2011. EST posted a net loss of $(54,123), or $(0.01) per share. The company posted a net loss $(106,054), or $(0.02) in the second quarter of 2011.
