These radios come in two styles, an 802.11b Client, and a PWP, ProSoft Wireless Protocol. The first allows secure access through the backplane by any 802.11b/g radio sharing the same password, such as a handheld PC. The second is using our PWP Protocol to allow the PLC to connect to any protocol supported by our PWP Protocol. This would enable a wireless connection to a Profibus Instrument, or to run RS-View wirelessly to your HMI.
Another application is the programming of the PLC through the radio without opening the enclosure in areas where arc-over is a concern.
This is the first of many in chassis units in Protocol and Rack Style.
If you have an application, contact us for the latest products.
Check out our new OPC Server. Now you can check the health of the your wireless network, and bring it directly into your PLC, your HMI or SCADA Software wirelessly.
