SCU-40: Users can easily establish and operate a WiRES-X Portable Node Station by directly connecting the FTM-400XD, FTM-400D, and FTM-100D to the PC with the SCU-40. Same as the WiRES-X Portable Node with the FT2D, four (4) different types of operation modes are available.
The software contains some improvements and optimizations to operate a WiRES-X PDN (Portable Digital Node) with the C4FM transceivers – FTM-400XD, FTM-400D, FTM-100D and FT2D and a fixed WiRES-X node station with HRI-200.
With the Portable Digital Node function, the flexibility and mobility of the WiRES-X Network will be available all the time.
That while the FTM-400D is supported it does require different MAIN version firmware than the FTM-400XD series.
If customers are interested in operating his/her node as an Access Point for C4FM digital only or Direct Operation with other C4FM digital nodes only, only the SCU-20 cable supplied with the FTM-400XD/D and FTM-100D package is required.
Using this new Portable Digital Node Function, users can gain access to the WiRES-X Network directly by using the transceivers PTT and microphone. The need to have an additional radio to talk to a node radio is no longer needed in order to enjoy the WiRES-X Network.
