OleumTech, a global provider of M2M automation and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) products, has introduced the WIO Radio Kit with Onboard I/O. As the name implies, the new product integrates both radio and a fixed set of analog and discrete I/O to its design, making it simple and very cost-effective to setup, the company says.
The new Wireless I/O System (RM4) is said to provide robust, secure wireless performance along with two analog 4-20 mA I/O and two discrete programmable I/O. The analog signals travel uni-directionally from Radio A (inputs) to Radio B (outputs), while the discrete I/O are bi-directional, set by its user.
Just like all WIO System products, there is no software programming involved and it is extremely easy to setup and use, making it a suitable choice for common wireless signal replication applications and an alternative to hardwired alternatives. By eliminating the cost associated with permitting, trenching, and running conduit and wire, the WIO System helps its users significantly reduce setup cost and installation time.
Product features include:
- Radio sets are factory paired, secure using AES encryption
- RF and I/O failure detection and reporting
- Response time can be set to either 400 ms or 1 second
- Available in 900 MHz (1 Watt) or 2.4 GHz (63 mW) versions
