Phoenix Contact’s Radioline wireless platform offers a replacement for simple I/O serial communication in areas where it is too costly or not possible to place a wire. The technology does not require software for simple I/O to I/O communication. For more advanced configurations, such as high-speed serial communication, network technologies with up to 250 nodes, nonintrusive diagnostics, and 128-bit encryption, free software is available. The wireless platform has two variations, 2.4 GHz and 900 MHz, which allow applications to span distances from approximately 200 ft to miles. The platform is suited for simple wire replacement, pump control, and temperature monitoring.
