Radioline in use

You can implement various network structures quickly and easily with Radioline: from a simple point-to-point connection to complex mesh networks.

Use as a point-to-point connection

Point-to-point connection  

Input and output of I/O signals: point-to-point

One option for transmitting I/O signals wirelessly in both directions is to use a point-to-point connection. If the system is installed with this configuration, the signals connected, the operating voltage applied, and the addresses set via the thumbwheel, then the wireless connection is established automatically without any further settings.

If you have extended your system with additional I/O modules, they can be assigned to one another quickly and easily via the thumbwheel on the front of the housing (I/O mapping).

Use in a star network

Signals can also be transmitted bidirectionally with Radioline in a star configuration. If the system is installed with this configuration, the signals connected, the operating voltage applied, and the addresses set via the thumbwheel, then the wireless connection is established automatically without any further settings.

The signals can be easily split or multiplied by additional receivers.

Use in mesh networks

Mesh network  

Input and output of I/O signals – mesh network

Connect your controller to serial field devices – easily using wireless technology: from simple point-to-point transmission to high-performance mesh networks.

The slaves are connected directly via repeater slave intermediate stations. Up to 250 repeater slaves can be connected one after the other in order to extend the wireless path or to integrate several repeater slaves.

Serial I/O devices or I/O extension modules can also be connected to the repeater slave intermediate stations. In the event that a connection in the network fails, information is redirected via another network node (roaming).

Self-organization and self-healing keep the network stable, as each device has multiple communication paths.
