Wireless I/O


 

Need to wire I/O point-to-point or to several points? Our Wireless I/O systems are quickly deployed and allow you to avoid trenching, conduit, pulling wires, and permitting. Find out more about how these solutions can benefit your application here.



802.11 Devices


ProSoft Technology has a family of Wi-Fi radios to meet various applications. Our 802.11abgn radios are capable of RF data transmission rates of up to 300 Mbps, which is great for I/O Control and video streaming applications. The RLX2 family has many valuable features, such as:

The EtherNet/IP™ object and Modbus® Agent support enables the ability for EtherNet/IP and Modbus® TCP controllers to read diagnostic information from the radios. This can help reduce down time when troubleshooting network issues.

The QoS feature allows for data prioritization. With QoS you can set different data transmission requirements for each of your I/O Control devices or video streaming. Virtual Local Area Networks (VLAN) allow for network secure segmentation. With a VLAN, you can have separate networks within your overall network.

Our access points can be used to locate and track assets and people with AeroScout® tags and software using a single, unified wireless network for data, voice and location services. AeroScout's Wi-Fi RFID Tags are small, battery-powered wireless devices used for accurately locating and tracking any asset or person.

Ultra-Fast Roaming: Provides seamless networking for automotive skillet lines, automated storage and retrieval systems, and amusement-park ride control. Mobile machines and carriers can travel long distances among multiple access points without dropping their Ethernet connection. Security: WPA2 Personal and Radius support with 128-bit AES encryption ensures secure networking.

We also have expertise in applications use a radiating cable solution. The radiating cable is good for applications where slip rings were initially used. The radiating cable solution reduces the maintenance and down time associated with slip rings in applications like bottling machines and automotive skillet lines.

Frequency Hopping Devices


Our Frequency Hopping industrial wireless solutions with Smart Switch technology are the answer. Our frequency hopping radios provide up to 30 miles of point to point connectivity at 1.1 Mbps, and are the solution for outdoor SCADA and other long distance functions. The radios provide virtual peer-to-peer packet switching and networking optimization using advanced Smart Switch technology. Smart Switch technology makes your network more efficient by determining which specific radio’s data needs to transmit at any given time. 

 


Cellular Devices


In this age of constant connections and communications thanks to the advent of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), companies are able to remotely monitor their devices across the globe, ensuring that they are able to make up-to-the-minute decisions to optimize their resources. The gateways provide secure wireless Ethernet and serial access to remote field devices over 4G and 3G cellular service. Devices can also be accessed using secure VPN tunnels over your existing Internet connection. The ICX30-HWC allows users to see remote status alerts and GPS details wherever they are - from their computer workstation to their cellphone at home. That gateway's EtherNet/IP embedded object also allows your EtherNet/IP-based controller to receive critical status data from your remote devices. The ICX35-HWC features a built-in Web server for configuration, monitoring, and wireless network diagnostics.
