Multi-Point Wireless I/O Radio Kit

Multi-Point Wireless I/O Radio Kit

BM-xxxx-GM1K

ProSoft Technology’s Multi-Point Wireless I/O system allows you to monitor I/O from multiple locations without running long wires. This secure, reliable system is scalable and deploys quickly, allowing you to skip trenching, conduit, and permits. Three module types: Analog 0-10 V, Analog 4-20 mA, and Digital/Discrete – give you the freedom to customize your setup based on your environment and needs.

The system can be used in different methods: I/O to I/O, I/O to Modbus serial communications, and Modbus® serial to Modbus Serial communications. This peer-to-peer system can move data from the I/O or Modbus devices to any other node. The digital input module can act as a counter and send the accumulated value to another location.
