Wireless I/O control platform
November 5, 2009 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Pilz’s MI-PSSuniversal modular, decentralized I/O control platform for industrial environments, has gone wireless, and with all radio clearances in, InduraNET p is fully operational. It was developed for use in situations where cable-based solutions are difficult, impractical or impossible. InduraNET’s antenna system virtually guarantees constant connections under all application conditions, the company says. Coexistence frequency management enables it to coexist with other wireless systems in the 2.4GHz ISM band, with high immunity to interference from other wireless services such as DECT, UMTS or GSM. Users can add the system to a new or existing I/O block without changing any hardware.
