Why most two-way radios fail

  1. 1. (besides a broken antenna or dead battery)
  2. 2. • Radios use an internal reference oscillator to maintain frequency, but these oscillators drift over time, affected by: – aging electronics – battery power – temperature – environment – mounting conditions • Eventually, the radio will fail.
  3. 3. • Keep radios properly aligned • Ensure operational readiness with preventative maintenance • Follow the manufacturer’s recommended specifications
  4. 4. Because they are poorly maintained!
  5. 5. • Thousands of radios • Cost and time prohibitive • Bench test on an annual basis
  6. 6. Statistics show 75-85% of radios in a land mobile radio network typically operate within specifications, meaning only 15-25% actually require immediate attention.
  7. 7. LocusUSA’s DiagnostX™ long-range Over-The-Air (OTA) radio waveform analyzer that analyzes all subscriber radios deployed in the field without any user intervention.
  8. 8. • Innovative approach to radio testing resulting in early detection of: – potential radio transmission problems – narrowband performance verification – waveform analytics – in trunked and conventional radio networks.
  9. 9. • Measurements are compared to established thresholds to identify any indication of a poorly operating radio. • The DiagnostX Viewer software allows the radio technician to review the captured metrics and proactively schedule repairs on a priority basis versus reacting to radios after they fail.
  10. 10. DiagnostX ensures operational readiness and eliminates the likelihood of radios failing during an emergency… when they are needed the most. For more information: Visit www.LocusUSA.com Phone 321-727-3077
