Frequency management

Clever technologies for trouble-free working.

Why frequency management?
Manual processes
Partially automatic processes
Fully automatic processes

In many fields of applications, a considerable amount of radio controls are in simultaneous use – for example on large construction sites or in factories.

Such situations are a challenge for the use of wireless machine controls. The simultaneous use of many radio systems on the same frequency channels can lead to frequency conflicts and ultimately to an automatic shut-down of the control.

When the amount of radio users in a working area is known (e.g. in a factory), this challenge can be met by a precise coordination of the frequencies in use. The layout of the hall, the required ranges, and the amount of available channels have to be considered.

For working situations with an unknown amount of users or an unknown layout of the working environment, such as large construction sites with different mobile machines in use at different times and locations, HBC-radiomatic offers intelligent frequency management technology.

Manual frequency switch

With the manual frequency switch, the operator can switch to the next radio channel by pressing a button.

Your advantages:

  • The process is easy to understand and offers a quick solution.

How it works:

  • To switch the radio channel the operator presses the Start button.
  • If this channel is occupied by another device, it is possible to switch again to the next frequency.
  • 16 radio channels are available.

radiomatic® AFS (Automatic Frequency Selection)

radiomatic® AFS stands for Automatic Frequency Selection.

Your advantages:

  • To switch the frequency, the operator simply has to turn the transmitter off and on again. The radio system then automatically finds a free channel.
  • This process is thus a quick and easy solution for the operator.

How it works:

  • When the transmitter is turned on, the radio system checks if the radio channel that was last used is available.
  • If this channel is occupied, the radio system automatically switches to a free radio channel.
  • If there are frequency conflicts later on, the operator simply turns the transmitter off and on again.
  • radiomatic® AFS immediately searches for a free radio channel.
2.4 GHz technology

2.4 GHz technology offers fully automatic frequency management.

Your advantages:

  • The manual frequency coordination with other radio users is not necessary.
  • The operator can work without interruption, even in areas with many radio users. This saves valuable time.
  • This technology is approved in nearly every country around the world, which makes warehousing much easier: instead of different country-specific high frequency modules, in most cases, just a single 2.4 GHz module can be used.
  • In countries where HBC radio systems are approved, the 2.4 GHz technology is available without registration or license fees. This saves costs and effort.

How it works:

  • Frequency management is integrated into the radio system and is fully automatic.
DECT

DECT stands for Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications and offers fully automatic frequency management.

Your advantages:

  • A manual frequency coordination with other radio users is not necessary.
  • The operator can work without interruptions, even in areas with many radio users. This saves valuable time.

How it works:

  • This technology works on an exclusive frequency band of 1880 – 1900 MHz.
  • Frequency management is fully automatic.
radiomatic® AFM

radiomatic® AFM stands for Automatic Frequency Management, the world’s first Automatic Frequency Management by HBC-radiomatic.

Your advantages:

  • A manual frequency coordination with other radio users is not necessary.
  • With this high-performing frequency management, the operator can work over great distances without any interruption.

How it works:

  • With its innovative technology, the system constantly detects free radio channels.
  • If the radio channel currently in use is occupied by another radio device, the function automatically switches to a free radio channel in less than a second.
