Radioline: a long range wireless system for large sites
19 December 2012
The new Radioline wireless system from Phoenix Contact is suitable for wireless signal transmission in the license-free, 2.4GHz frequency band across large sites. I/O mapping is one special feature that distributes signals for up to 250 stations within the system without the need for any programming.
Input signals receive I/O addresses by means of thumb wheels, with these addresses being mapped to corresponding output modules. Because identical signals can also be output several times, it is possible to set up intelligent distribution and signal multiplication in the field.
Radioline and its integrated functions can be used universally for different applications, including I/O signals, serial data, or the implementation of I/O to Modbus. The stations can be arranged as needed in point-to-point, star, or mesh structures. Each station can also be used as a wireless repeater for other stations.
The I/O stations can be expanded modularly. The modules also feature channel-to-channel galvanic isolation and can be switched out easily while the system is in operation. Additionally, the digital channels are equipped with relay outputs for switching applications up to 250V.
