MDS SD Series - Long Range IP/Ethernet & Serial (SD1, SD2, SD4 & SD9)

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.


The SD Series is the latest generation of MDS licensed narrowband wireless devices providing exceptional communication performance and reliability to meet demands for IP/Ethernet services as well as support for multiple devices and host systems. The SD is compatible with previous generations allowing for a smooth and controlled migration for existing systems.

Key Benefits

  • High speed, up to 65 Kbps in 50 KHz channel in SD2 and SD9

  • Operate IP/Ethernet and serial communication on a single network

  • Connect multiple host systems to a single Access Point radio

  • Connect multiple devices to a single remote radio

  • Implement push communication and report by exception from remote devices

  • Simple, intuitive web based configuration and maintenance

  • Easy migration path from serial to IP/Ethernet

  • Backward compatible with existing MDS x710 networks

MDS TransNET - Long Range, High Speed Serial Communications

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.


Any MDS TransNET may be configured as a repeater to extend the operating range of the network. Multiple repeaters may exist at any level of the network preventing a single radio failure from disabling the entire network.

Key Benefits

  • Digital signal processing (DSP) technology with self-equalization, automatic CRC/ARQ and powerful forward error correction

  • Quick return on investment with plug-and-play installation

  • Unlicensed radio design

  • Communicate with any asynchronous protocol without extra software or additional programming

  • Excellent performance in the face of interference or difficult signal paths

  • Network-wide diagnostics software simplifies tasks and reduces costs
