Wireless Automation System

Part #: 80660

The Wireless Automation System is a 900 MHz radio frequency network with integrated I/O that can operate in most environments while eliminating the need for wiring runs. Wireless radio control systems are built around a Gateway, which acts as the wireless network master device, and one or more Nodes.

The Wireless Automation System is an industrial wireless radio control I/O device with six discrete DIP switch selectable inputs, and six discrete (sourcing) outputs, with DIP switches for user configuration. The system combines Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology and Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) control architecture to ensure reliable data delivery within the unlicensed Industrial, Scientific, and Medical (ISM) bands. The transceivers provide two-way communication between the Gateway and Node, including fully acknowledged data transmission site survey analyses. Lost RF links are detected, and relevant outputs set to user-defined conditions.


The Wireless Automation System provides reliable monitoring, without the burden of wiring or conduit installation, and can operate independently of, or in connection with, a PLC and/or PLC Software. Each wireless radio control system consists of one gateway and one or more nodes. The gateway device works as the master within each radio network system. The gateway initiates communication and reporting with the node. Each node can be connected to a sensor or output device and report back the state of the I/O to the master. The gateway and nodes can be arranged to extend the range (2 miles) of the network or to avoid obstacles in the transmissions path.
