Portable Base Station & Tracking Monitor

Remote Alert Wireless Command (RAWC) is portable base-station that accommodates a laptop computer running RavTrack PC tracking software or alternative tracking solutions to create a lightweight, Remote Alert Wireless Command Center (RAWC). Together with Raveon’s personnel tracker ATLAS PT and M7-GX GPS tracking radios creates a powerful independent tracking system that any emergency response unit should have available for disaster preparedness and/or when access to other wireless systems is not available.

The RAWC communication subsystem is a portable base station in a transit case configured to be rapidly deployed from a vehicle. It has a VHF or UHF radio modem integrated inside the case which connects to a computer via included USB cable (running serial protocol). The unit also has a backup battery for temporary mobile use. The RF signals (GPS and VHF) are cabled to connectors on the outside of the case to provide the option of hooking up external components to the system.

Features include:

  • Rugged and self-contained, with double throw latches and pad-lockable lid.
  • Light weight (under 30lbs with laptop), with retractable handle for convenient transport and deployment.
  • Raveon M7 RF Transceiver built in for wireless connectivity.
  • Radio power: Three sources. AC power supply built in. DC battery back-up built in. DC charger input.
  • Backlit ON/OFF switch for radio.
  • On-board GPS antenna. Hot-swappable with external GPS antenna through external TNC port.
  • Custom brackets designed specifically for a Dell Latitude E6420 XFR to secure laptop and protect from dropping.

Radio

The model number of the RV-SML modem identifies its operating frequency band, rf power level, and bandwidth. The models are: RV-SML-ab where:

  • The band (V=136-174MHz, U=406-512MHz)
  • Sub band (A,B,C,…)

Other frequency bands, power levels, and channel spacing are available. Contact us for your specific needs. Note, the SMS-L uses the SMS base station version firmware, and the no-tune RF bandwidth is an 8MHz window within the sub-band range.

Connectivity

AC Power Input Connector

The AC input connector is located on the right rear of the enclosure. This accepts a typical AC power cable used on many industrial devices that take an AC power input. This input box has an integrated switch to control power connection. There is also an internal fuse on this input.

DC Power Input Connector

The DC input is a Bulgin Px0412/03P and is located on the right-rear of the enclosure. This is used for powering the radio specifically and does not charge the radio’s backup battery or the laptop. The custom cable used for this input is described below in the Cable Options section (5.3). The pinout of the DC input connector is shown below in the cable options section.

RF Antenna Connector

The RF antenna connector is an N-type female with standard (not reverse) thread. This is internally routed to the M7 radio inside the case. It is recommended that the user has some kind of additional strain relief cable to protect this connector from ware.

Accessories

Car Chargers

This cables will allow an the RAWC to be connected to an automotive cigarette lighter plug, and charged from the vehicle. The automotive charger cable charges and operates the internal data radio, not the laptop.
