Ethernet radio provides secure I/O

Phoenix Contact has announced the RAD-80211-XD-BUS, a wireless Ethernet radio with modular I/O and firmware capabilities. It combines secure wireless communication with control of up to eight I/O modules. Up to 64 digital, analog and pulse I/O can be interfaced directly to the radio. The flexibility saves installed cost for distributed Ethernet wireless I/O monitoring and control applications.

Phoenix Contact has announced the RAD-80211-XD-BUS, a wireless Ethernet radio with modular I/O and firmware capabilities. It combines secure wireless communication with control of up to eight I/O modules. Up to 64 digital, analog and pulse I/O can be interfaced directly to the radio. The flexibility saves installed cost for distributed Ethernet wireless I/O monitoring and control applications. I/O modules can be addressed via Modbus TCP or legacy serial Modbus RTU over the 802.11 network to allow a standard solution for facilities undergoing incremental upgrades. Multiple wireless communications streams allow simultaneous Ethernet, I/O control, and serial ASCII device communications from a single radio without external gateways or additional serial wireless converters. New functions include enhanced serial ASCII com server functionality, RS-232/485 data rates expanded up to 460 kbps, and a new link-monitoring diagnostic function. www.phoenixcon.com Phoenix Contact
