The WIO® Wireless Base Unit, WM2000-002, is part of the WIO family of industrial wireless automation products. The Base Unit is an economical solution for adding wireless capabilities to existing or new, process conditions. The Base Unit is a multi-input unit capable of accepting four analog inputs (0-5V), two DIs and two DOs for a variety of monitoring and control applications. A wide range of analog and digital I/O expansion modules are available.
With a compact footprint and low power consumption, the Base Unit design combines a data acquisition board, and a proprietary radio module for use in SCADA and wireless telemetry applications. The Base Unit can be easily expanded for larger I/O counts. The product also offers communication using the industry-standard Modbus protocol to simplify integration with SCADA software, MMIs, DCS systems and intelligent instrumentation.
The Base Unit utilizes the license free 902-928 MHz ISM band, which provides highly reliable communication between remote devices and the primary control panels, EFMs or RTUs via RS232/485 data port. There are several configuration options from simple I/O mirroring, point-to-point, point-to-multipoint or peer-to-peer networking. This unique interoperability is designed to create a robust network, while improving throughput as subscriber device density increases.
