Monitoring Door Switches
Magnetic door switches were placed at every exit and entry point in the plant.
Switch status information is transmitted back to a central location so that security personnel can monitor the opening of exits that should remain closed during normal operation. Each magnetic switch is connected to a DX80N2Q45RD Wireless Q45 Sensor - Remote Device model and uses the Q45’s dry contact inputs.
Multiple DX80G2M6-Q Gateways are installed throughout the plant to collect the data from the wireless Nodes and a backbone of Banner DX80 MultiHop Data Radios transmit the data back to one Modbus host system.
