How many times do you need to get a few points of digital or analog
inputs and outputs from point A to point B, but can’t justify the cost of
running the wires? The Radio Kit is a replacement for hardwired I/O that
is simple to deploy. The Kit requires no programming – just wire strippers
and a screwdriver. There is no communication protocol to interpret.
The radios are paired and secured at the factory, so there are no settings
or configurations to figure out. It is bi-directional, so digital and analog
signals can be sent in both directions between two connected I/O
stations. Inputs on one module are simply replicated as outputs on the
corresponding module. Our wireless I/O makes use of the unlicensed ISM
band at either 868 MHz, 900 MHz, or 2.4 GHz, with both US and
International versions available. The radios can send I/O up to 4 miles for
the 900 MHz or 1 mile for the 868 MHz and 2.4 GHz models. Each radio
pair can connect up to 16 I/O modules, more than enough for most
Save time and money: Eliminates trenching and running conduit / deploys in minutes
Easy to use: No software configuration needed
Easy to install: Mounts onto a 35 mm DIN rail without any tools
Scalable: Supports a multitude of I/O modules per system. See specs for details.
Secure: Factory paired, secure radio system keeps network protected from intrusions
Failsafe: User can defines how outputs are failed over when RF or I/O communication is ever lost
Reduced wiring: Single power termination per station
