Case Studies - Electric CO-OPs

Datalink delivers an advanced GPS Tracking and Safety system for Electric CO-OPs





An Electric Co-Op in Minnessota running a Kenwood NEXEDGE Network wanted to add more advanced GPS data and network roaming capabilities to their NX Radios.

The Kenwood SMR turned to Datalink Systems to deliver a solution.  Datalink developed and delivered a unique solution where the radio channel switching was controlled by a Datalink i50 based on the GPS location of the vehicle. This allowed Service Vehicles supporting high voltage transmission lines to roam around the State and when within the coverage of the network would automatically switch the radio to the channel with strongest coverage for the area.

The operator has manual override control at all times.
