Bidirectional wireless system – secure transmission in both directions

Transmit two digital switching signals and one analog sensor signal securely in both directions with our bidirectional RAD Line I/O modules.

Advantages of the bidirectional wireless system

Flexible I/O communication with the bidirectional wireless system

Design your bidirectional wireless system individually according to your requirements. With the integrated bus foot, you can connect up to eight I/O extension modules quickly and easily.

  • Long range from a few hundred hundred feet to several miles
  • Easy start-up
  • Good diagnostic options
  • High local system density of several hundred networks possible
  • No operating costs, thanks to license-free 900 MHz frequency band
  • Can be extended with I/O extension modules
  • Suitable for use in Class I, Division 2 and Ex zone 2 areas

Use as a bidirectional point-to-point connection

Bidirectional point-to-point connection

One option for transmitting I/O signals wirelessly is to use a point-to-point connection in both directions. If the system is installed with this configuration, the signals connected, and the operating voltage applied, 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 via the address encoding switch on the front of the housing.

Use as a unidirectional point-to-multipoint connection

If you want to use your bidirectional wireless system with a point-to-multipoint configuration, this will result in a unidirectional wireless system (that is, one transmitter and any number of receivers). In this configuration, the receiver stations are mirror images of the transmitter side.

The system can also be extended with I/O extension modules. This means a signal path can be split or signals can be multiplied.

An address encoding switch on the front of the housing is used to assign the I/O modules to one another.

Use with a repeater

Bidirectional point-to-point connection with repeater

Do you want to increase your transmission range and reliably communicate over hills? Then add a repeater to your system.

The repeater is just a store-and-forward module and cannot receive or output signals. It is simply used to extend the range of your wireless link.
