PSSuniversal, the modular, decentralized input/output (I/O) control platform for industrial environments has gone wireless. With all radio clearances in, InduraNET p is fully operational. InduraNET p, short for Industrial Radio Network, was specially developed for use in situations where cable-based solutions are difficult, impractical or impossible to install. Coexistence Frequency Management enables InduraNET p systems 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 InduraNET p to a new or existing I/O block without changing any hardware. A maximum of 64 operational and safety input/output modules —each with two or four I/O—can be installed in any order alongside a single PSSuniversal head module. Communication is viable using all common standard field bus protocols.
