Busable Radio Connects I/O

Oct. 2, 2009
As the latest addition to the vendor’s Trusted Wireless Ethernet (TWE) line of industrial wireless products, the RAD-ISM-900-EN-BUS is a busable 900MHz radio that allows direct connection of I/O modules to the radio. 
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 Modbus protocol. It can easily be integrated into new or existing PLC, SCADA, or DCS systems, says the vendor. A multiple master function has been added to the 900 MHz TWE radio family, which can create redundancy and wireless failover connections if a master or host radio is not accessible.
