The Radioline expansion modules offer direct connection of common industrial signals to the Radioline platform, eliminating the need for RTU or PLC devices. Expansion modules are hot swappable and up to 32 modules can be added to a Radioline wireless module.

The Radioline platform is available in two frequency ranges - 2.4 GHz and 900 MHz.

  • High-performance Radioline 900 MHz – Designed for North American use and suitable for either short-range, non-line-of-sight applications or for long-range applications of up to 20 miles
  • Radioline 2.4 GHz – Designed for International use and suitable for short-range, clear line-of-sight applications
  • Radioline RS-485 bus – Designed to be a simple method of assigning I/O information via thumbwheels to now be accessible on a wired RS-485 system

Operation modes

Wire-in wire-out
Wire-in – Wire-out

Wire-in – Wire-out maps I/O from one location to another via wireless without the need for an additional controller or software.

Wireless I/O to Modbus

Wireless I/O to Modbus collects I/O directly at the Radioline wireless module using extension modules. This I/O is addressed via Modbus without the need for additional hardware.

Wireless serial

Wireless serial provides RS-232 and RS-485 networking, connecting serial end devices, PLCs, and RTUs reliably.

Wireless dual mode

Wireless dual mode provides simultaneous serial and I/O module mapping over a Radioline network via Modbus.
