Radioline wireless system

Radioline wireless module  

Radioline is the wireless module for large systems

Radioline is the wireless system for large systems. Special features include extremely easy assignment of inputs and outputs by simply turning the thumbwheel – no programming is necessary. Thanks to Trusted Wireless 2.0 technology, Radioline is the ideal choice for reliable use in industrial environments.

  • Highly reliable, thanks to Trusted Wireless 2.0 technology
  • Supported frequency bands: 868 MHz, 900 MHz, and 2.4 GHz
  • Range of up to 32 kilometers, thanks to adjustable data rate
  • Flexible network configuration: Radioline supports both point-to-point connections and complex mesh networks with up to 250 nodes
  • Save on devices: transmit I/O signals or serial data using a single device, thanks to the integrated RS-232/RS-485 interface
  • Can be extended with up to 32 I/O modules, thanks to DIN rail connector and hot-swap capability
Radioline switchgear and controlgear assembly  

Switchgear and controlgear assembly for outdoor installation

The Radioline outdoor switchgear and controlgear assemblies can be installed directly outdoors in order to wirelessly transmit I/O signals or serial data quickly and easily. Select the wireless modules, along with the type and number of I/O extension modules required, when placing your order.

Wireless multiplexers – The wireless signal cable

Wireless multiplexers  

Transmit your I/O signals reliably to hard-to-reach or rotating stations using the Wireless MUX

The Wireless MUX can be installed very quickly: simply connect, switch on, and you have a working wireless path. The system transmits 16 digital and 2 analog signals bidirectionally. This means that it can replace a 40-wire signal cable.

  • Easy startup, as no configuration or settings are required
  • High number of channels in a compact housing
  • Fast connection establishment and signal transmission
  • Range of up to 200 m with omnidirectional antennas, up to 400 m with directional antennas with a clear line of sight
  • Current Bluetooth 4.0 technology

WirelessHART – Wireless process technology

WirelessHART wireless system  

Proven HART communication for your network – now also wireless

With WirelessHART, you can easily extend a wired HART system without having to replace it. Easily integrate I/O stations or diagnostic data into your communication. Install new systems with WirelessHART in a fraction of the time required to install wired networks.

  • Easy integration of new stations, thanks to WirelessHART technology
  • Can be used worldwide, thanks to international standard in the license-free 2.4 GHz frequency band
  • Flexible communication, thanks to additional functions for the integration of non-HART data
