Remote Connectivity, Wireless Communication & Networking
Industrial wireless I/O modules easily replace discrete, analog, serial and Ethernet signal wires. With no setup software needed, data radios are easy to apply, use and support to create expandable point-to-multipoint wireless networks that distribute I/O over large areas.
PM Series – Wireless I/O
The PM series provides a flexible I/O radio network that combines long range line-of-sight coverage with ease of deployment and use, easily setting up without software. Setting up a basic point-to-point network is as easy as pairing a cell phone to a headset. Customers can replace cables and extend the range of digital and analog signals with minimal effort. The PM2 Series has four sourcing discrete inputs, four sourcing discrete outputs, two analog inputs and two analog outputs in both the gateway and the node.
Performance Series Gateways and Nodes
Create point-to-multi point networks that distribute I/O over large areas. Input and output types include discrete (dry contact, PNP/NPN, float), analog (0 to 10 V dc, 0 to 20 mA), temperature (thermocouple, thermistor and RTD), AC/DC relay (SPDT) and asynchronous counter (up to 10kHz). Enhanced gateways and nodes offer increased range in the 900 MHz frequency band. High-density I/O capacity provides up to 12 discrete inputs or outputs or a mix of discrete and analog I/O.
MultiHop Modbus I/O Data Radios
MultiHop Modbus Data Radios extend the range of Modbus or other serial communication networks. Each radio may be set to act as either a master, repeater or slave. Models are available with built in discrete and analog I/O, which can be accessed using the Modbus protocol. Self-healing, auto-routing RF networks with multiple hops extend the network’s range.
Ethernet Data Radios
Sure Cross MultiHop Ethernet Data Radios are wireless industrial communication devices used to create point to multipoint configurations of wireless Ethernet networks. No IP address configuration is required. Dip switches select operational modes: master, repeater or slave. Built-in site survey mode enables rapid assessment of a location’s RF transmission properties.
Wireless I/O Serial Data Radios
Sure Cross MultiHop Serial Data Radios are wireless industrial communication devices used to extend the range of serial communication networks. Serial communication style (RS-232 or RS-485) is user-selectable.
Hazardous Area Radios – Metal Housing
Hazardous area radios are a state-of-the-art combination of wireless communication, battery technology and intrinsically safe electronics. Networks are formed using DX80 Performance Gateways installed beyond the hazardous area and one or more nodes operating in the same frequency band. All models are certified for operation in Class I, Division 1 and ATEX Zone 0 locations. A battery-based power supply provides power for third-party 4 to 20 mA and NAMUR process sensors.For more information on Wireless I/O from Banner Engineering, as well as how Power Motion can help, please contact us.
