February 14, 2017 - Wireless Industrial Networks (WIN) announced availability of wireless process sensing and condition-based monitoring solutions for the industrial, factory and commercial markets. The wireless products include a Gateway, Universal Transmitter and selection of measurement sensors. WIN’s wireless solutions are designed to change the way the industry thinks about industrial wireless. The communication transmission is industry standard 900 MHz, is license free and has a range of 5,280 feet. The self-configuring communication network is “plug & play” and requires no prior wireless experience. The WIN wireless solution consist of 4 items:
- Wireless Gateway – a 900 MHz communication gateway with standard Ethernet output and supports 200+ transmitters located 5,280 feet away.
- Universal Wireless Transmitter – battery (replaceable) powered transmitter accepts up to 3 universal sensor inputs, mix of any sensor measurement types, 900 MHz, IEEE 802.15.4 standard radio, frequency-hopping, auto configure and AES 128-bit industry standard encryption in a small light-weight NEMA 4x enclosure.
- Sensors – a line of measurement sensors using V-Bus technology characterizes each sensor with a pre-programing calibration curve eliminating the need for on-site calibration. Sensors include temperature, pressure, 4-20 mA, current voltage, humidity/temperature, dual temperature, vibration, discrete, proximity and more.
- DataManager and Web Dashboard – these PC-based software applications are included with the gateway and provide a status of all network sensors and is a navigation tool used to access sensor details and measurement history. Features include: scaled engineering unit, alarm settings, measurement status indicators, measurement groups, email/text message for alerts and more.
Common applications include: motor temperature and current draw, pump vibration, bearing vibration or temperature monitoring, conveyor vibration monitoring, exhaust and cooling tower fan monitoring, filter monitoring an more.
