Phoenix Contact Introduces Point-to-Multi-Point Wireless I/O for Low Point Count Remote Sites
Harrisburg, PA – Phoenix Contact’s new wireless I/O for industrial applications enables monitoring and control at low point count remote sites while eliminating the need for a PLC where local logic is not required. These data radios not only move RS-232, RS-422 and RS-485 for serial data from any PLC or controller with MODBUS and Allen-Bradley DF1 protocols, but also allow users to read and write analog and digital I/O from remote locations. This new RAD-DATA-BUS system is compatible with the company’s expandable wireless I/O module combinations and other DIN-rail mount serial data radios.

Each RAD-DATA transceiver is a master, slave and store-and-forward repeater/slave all in one. While supporting transparent data communications, as well as MODBUS and Allen-Bradley DF1 packet communications, the radios self-heal (reroute) in repeater networks. Remote diagnostics is a standard feature.

The strength of these radios lies in their ability to withstand ISM band interference while ensuring the integrity of the data and I/O packets. DIN-rail mountable, Class I, Div 2 approved, license-free and easy-to-use, these ISM band frequency-hopping radios are capable of performing across wide temperature ranges and accepting a broad range of DC voltages.

The RAD-DATA-BUS offers reliability and flexibility in point-to-multi-point applications, similar to the point-to-point systems users have come to trust in Phoenix Contact’s industrial wireless I/O devices used to replace digital and 4-20mA cabling.

Phoenix Contact Inc. Quality System is registered to ISO 9001: 2000 - Quality Systems Model for Quality Assurance in design, development, production, installation and servicing.
