Radio port RP-422 — CJSC «NPF Proryv»



E. A radio port is a simple alternative solution for situations where cabling between sites is not possible or difficult. The RP-422 radio port is used for wireless connection of devices with RS-485/422 interface, as well as analog and discrete sensors to the information collection unit, performs data reception and transmission.

Device and principle of operation

RP-422 works as a receiver and as a transmitter, receiving signals from sources of primary information, for example, electricity meters, MODBUS devices, controllers, and transmitting them to the RP-422 MASTER device. Within the same network, RP-422 can operate as a MASTER device or as a SLAVE device. The MASTER device over the Ethernet network exchanges data directly with the information collection node. The RP-422 radio port is also designed for connecting analog and discrete sensors.

Port/channel type RP-422 Features Device connection
Ethernet 1 10/100 BASE T, RJ45 Terminal controller, computer.
RS-422/RS-485 1 Electricity meters of various types, GPS receivers, devices with an appropriate interface (TMD, PIK, TMU), intelligent devices, equipment operating under the MODBUS protocol.
Analog inputs 2 Input signal range for voltage sensors 0-2.5 V, for sensors with current output 0-20 mA. Analog sensors: current sensors, voltage sensors.
Digital inputs 3 12 V, the presence of voltage at the input is considered a logical zero, the absence of voltage is considered a logical one. Discrete dry contact sensors.

Basic functions

  • Organization of spatially distributed wireless networks.
  • Wireless connection of devices with RS-485/422 interface.
  • Wireless connection of sensors (TS and TI) to the information collection unit.

Operating conditions

  • Operating temperature range -40° to +85°C
  • Relative humidity, max 95% at t=35°C

Dimensions and weight

  • 106x90x58 mm
  • 0.5 kg


DC Power 24 V (18 to 36)
Power input Max. 5 W
External antenna Omnidirectional, integral, male
Antenna gain supplied 3 dB
*Radio range 1 km (open space)
40 m (indoors)
RF band 2400-2483.5 MHz
Maximum radiation power 100 mW

*The delivery set of RP-422 includes antenna BY-2400-02. To increase the radio communication range up to 500 m or more, it is recommended to use antennas with a gain of 5-8 dB.

Is registration required?

When using user (terminal) radio access equipment (wireless access) in the radio frequency band 2400-2483.5 MHz with the radiation power of transmitting devices up to 100 mW inclusive , registration of radio electronic equipment (RES) is not required, including in local territorial bodies of the State Committee for Radio Frequencies. See REGISTRATION RULES OF RADIO ELECTRONIC FACILITIES AND HIGH-FREQUENCY DEVICES (as amended by Decrees of the Government of the Russian Federation of 07.
