Orion RADIO over IP—4 Port (RIP4)


The Orion Systems Radio over IP (RIP4) device interconnects multiple radios and FXO Telephone interfaces over a LAN/WAN to Orion IP Consoles and/or an IP Voice Communication Switch (IP-VCS).

Each RIP4 device is equipped with four radio interfaces. As an option 2-Wire FXO POTS telephone interfaces can be added to the unit. Each radio interface includes a full duplex non-blocking Tx/Rx radio communication. The RIP4 device is capable of transmitting and receiving audio on all four radios and up to 4 telephone interfaces simultaneously. When paired with Orion IP Consoles or an Orion IP-VCS the RIP4 device performs as an Analog to VoIP/RoIP gateway

Each radio interface consists of 600/150 Ω analog transmit and receive transformer isolated audio pair. Radio keying utilizes either a PTT solid-state contact closure or EIA Function Tones. Each radio interface contains VOX and Carrier Operated Relay (COR) detectors that can be used for radio-to-radio patch key-ing.

Management and configuration is accomplished using a Web browser. Settings such TX/RX line levels, Tone Keying Functions AGC enable/disable, and VOX level detection are set using a standard web interface. A username and password must be provided to access the unit.
