The AMMS system uses the AVISA Protocol for communication between devices. This AVISA Protocol can run via various connection types, such as an AVISA Bus based wired connection or an XBee wireless connection. The X-Bee wireless connection frequency is dependent upon the location of the AMMS system, since each country or region has their own wireless networking regulations.
The X-Bee router is the wireless communication module for the AMMS. It uses European or American X-Bee frequencies. The antenna status can be read using the AMMS C2 software. The antenna casing is waterproof and works in all weather conditions. Wireless signals can be encrypted to secure the transmitted data.
There are many possibilities to get connected with the AMMS sensor in the field. From RF-antenna to satellite communication.
The Iridium External Interface transmits AMMS detection messages from anywhere on earth. An Iridium satellite modem is used. The Iridium network has 66 satellites in orbit around the Earth, allowing coverage anywhere on Earth. This allows sending signals from the remotest locations such as the middle of the desert.
