RAVEN100 CDMA Airlink Cellular Modem for Verizon


The Raven100 was an Airlink CDMA modem configured for Verizon cellular networks. This full-duplex modem transmitted data to the local cellular tower using a CDMA network. The data was sent from the tower to the base station computer via the Internet. Communicating via Internet provided faster communication rates and eliminated dialing delays and long distance fees.

Datalogger Considerations

Compatible Contemporary Dataloggers

CR200(X) Series CR800/CR850 CR1000 CR3000 CR9000X

Compatible Retired Dataloggers

CR500 CR510 CR10 CR10X 21X CR23X CR9000 CR5000 CR7X

*Although the CR9000X and CR9000 are compatible, the Raven100 does not support their fastest communication rates, and is therefore not practical for most of their applications.
