A new radio from Banner Engineering combines wireless transceiver, power supply and I/O circuits in one compact housing. The DX80DR MultiHop Radio connects sensors directly to the network, eliminating need for data loggers, power supplies, PLCs or HMIs at the sensor location.
The radio is compatible with all industrial signals but also with specific instruments including moisture sensors, strain gauges, water quality indicators, flow counter, irrigation valves and temperature transmitters.
• Power Generation
• Oil & Gas
• Water & Wastewater
• Grain Handling
• Municipal Parking
• Facilities monitoring
• Factory Automation
• Chemical Processing
The enhanced radios expand the capability of Banner’s SureCross wireless solutions in numerous industries including oil & gas, composting, grain handling, water monitoring, aquaculture, irrigation, parking, flood warning and facilities monitoring.
The increased capability of the radio allows real-time access to information that was previously logged at sensor sites for later download. I/O terminals are provided for thermocouples, digital and analog input and output, battery operated irrigation valve operation, soil and water sensors. RS485 Modbus RTU connection is built in.
The MultiHop system automatically repeats wireless messages as needed to extend distance capability to 20 km or more and allow signals to pass over hills or other obstacles. Radios can be powered by 10-30 VDC, battery or solar power supply, allowing wireless repeaters to be placed where no power is available.
Banner can provide wireless connections ranging from the simple “point to point” system to those spanning hundreds of square kilometers and thousands of points.
