Busable Radio Allows Direct Connection Of I/O Modules
The radio allows the user to collect I/O without a remotely located PLC or I/O data concentrator. The bused I/O is made accessible to the network using the readily available MODBUS protocol. It can easily be integrated into new or existing PLC, SCADA, or DCS systems.
Phoenix Contact has also added a multiple master function to the 900 MHz TWE radio family. This function can create redundancy and wireless failover connections if a master or host radio is not accessible.
The new multiple master function and busable radio make the 900MHz TWE radios ideal for a variety of industrial applications such as tank level, pressure, and temperature monitoring, pump status and control, and SCADA system expansion.
