1. Introduction

1.1. Properties of the MORSE system

MORSE is a packet telecommunication system. It transfers data packets over radio channels and IP networks.

  • Network created for a given application exclusively for the transmission of data

  • Packet network is effective for very frequent transmission of short messages

  • High transfer speed = high transfer capacity and reliability. The fact that individual messages are transferred over a short time reduces the risk of messages being affected by interference.

  • Modulation transfer speed of radio modems in the MORSE system is 21.68 kbps for a 25 kHz channel in the 140-470 MHz range and up to 192 kbps for a 500 kHz channel in the 900 MHz band

  • Rx/Tx switching speed < 1.5 ms

  • Integration of any transmission media – LAN, WAN, GPRS, satellite, etc.

  • 5 user ports + Ethernet available on each modem, integrated digital/analog I/O module

  • Tens of supported industrial protocols

  • Options include remote configuration, hot-line servicing, remote supervision and network administration, network diagnostics using RANEC supervisory SW – it is possible to continuously monitor the quality of transmission, optimise the network and react in time to deteriorations in the properties of connections before there is an actual break in connection. Remote servicing allows the causes of most faults to be uncovered, to decide whether there is a defect in the communication network or in the connected device, and to quickly and cheaply remove the majority of defects. Records are accessible in HW components of the MORSE system which contain extensive information about operation, the status of transmission channels (repeated packets, lost packets, number of packets, etc.), interference, etc. typically for the past 3 days of operation. Testing and monitoring the quality of individual connections

  • MORSE system radio modems are installed with special software designed for testing and measuring the quality of data transfer, simulating operating loads, etc. The MORSE system constantly (evening when listening to user operation messages) measures and stores in memory the audibility of stations, the strength of signals, data quality, and the average and pulse level of interference, etc.

  • Possibility of creating very extensive mobile networks
