NK Technologies introduces the WRT Series Wireless Data Transmitter/Receiver. This wired-to-wireless solution provides a self-managed mesh network that works with any RS485 network protocol to promote highly reliable system operation in new or retrofit applications. The system allows for wired and wireless equipment mixes to avoid radio signal obstacles. It is also simple to configure for existing network packet parameters, provides LED indication of network status and is completely transparent to present equipment. WRT users will benefit from wireless data transmission of up to 100 meters between receivers, and data transmissions up to 800 meter transmissions are possible with multiple hops.
The WRT series offers automatic route detection, self-forming and self-healing networking, and supports 100 nodes per network maximum through 15 channels. The compact and unobtrusive housing styling has a pivoting antenna to accommodate cramped enclosure spaces, and the plastic case makes it easy to install the unit on a wall or in a non-metallic enclosure. Easily adjustable address and channel frequencies speed startup.
This wireless data transmitter / receiver is compatible with most automation systems and is ideal for use in applications that require continuous monitoring such as photovoltaic power generation, building energy management, water treatment, power plants, and many manufacturing processes.
