Moore’s NCS network goes wireless
When wires can't be run for practical or economic reasons, Moore Industries’ Wireless Link Module (WLM) provides accurate, reliable wireless connectivity between remote sites.
When wires can't be run for practical or economic reasons, Moore Industries ’ Wireless Link Module (WLM) provides accurate, reliable wireless connectivity between remote sites. This bi-directional, spread-spectrum, wireless module employs Intelligent Spectrum Frequency Hopping technology and 32-bit CRC error correction for secure, robust communications. Available models will support Ethernet or serial communications, and operate at FCC license-free frequency ranges of 902-928 MHz or 2.4-2.483 GHz.
WLM is reportedly ideal for use with Moore' NCS NET Concentrator System (NCS), as well as similar process control and distributed I/O systems. The NCS process control and distributed I/O system provides 20-bit measurement resolution, compared to 12-, 14- or 16-bit for similar I/O systems. It also delivers signal-conditioning capabilities equivalent to the market’s highest-quality transmitters. Data rates up to 100 Mbps provide the speed needed for applications re-quiring precise real-time readings or control.
WLM provides a time- and cost-effective solution for overcoming rugged, long-distance, or otherwise normally impassable, environments by sending just a few, or thousands of, process signals over a low-cost wireless communication link.
