A master communication device used to control and initiate commands to other devices in a wireless network.
- Each Gateway hosts one or more Nodes in the same frequency band.
- The Gateway can act as a master device in a star topology, controlling input-to-output mapping.
- The Gateway acts as a a Modbus slave in a host control system using RS-485 Modbus RTU.
- To relay mapped I/O longer distances, a Gateway can be positioned between two Nodes to increase range.
- 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz frequency models are available to accommodate worldwide communication standards.
- Models are available with analog and discrete, or discrete I/O.
- Menu and configuration access push buttons provide click-through menu-driven configuration of basic network settings.
- Rotary switches for network identity and device address are easy to set and change.
- Gateways require 10 to 30V dc line power.
- Models with internal or external antennas are available, depending on range.
- Wiring terminals are accessible without removal from mounting.
- Base is designed for four-point flat mounting or DIN-rail mounting.
- Housing is rated IEC IP67; NEMA 6 for long-lasting performance in rugged environments.
