Jan. 24, 2007
Zlinx Modbus industrial grade radio modems can do the job faster, easier, and less expensively than stringing cable. Why string cable when you can Make the Connection wirelessly. The Zlinx family of industrial radio modems has a reputation for robust and reliable high speed, secure communication. They are designed to provide wide area system coverage to ensure reliable, secure, and cost effective transmission of critical data to remote sites. Zlinx will transmit your serial signal transparently up to 40 miles. Features include an easily accessible terminal block, along with indicator lights to indicate signal strength and signal failure, all in one DIN rail mount industrial case. Make the Connection and Keep the Connection with the Zlinx Modbus radio modems from B&B Electronics. Select the power level you need to punch through whatever distance and interference situations you encounter. Zlinx solutions operate within the ISM 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz frequencies. Coupled with extraordinary receiver sensitivity, this radio modem can full duplex over long distances and through the most difficult environments. Special filtering technology blocks cell phone, pager and other wireless interference. The modem can operate from 9600 bps to 115.2kbps and transfers RS-232 /422/485 serial signals. Its over-the-air data rate is 115kbps. Each transceiver carries FCC approvals for use in the USA and IC approvals for Canada. The modems provide 256-bit AES encryption – the highest encryption standard available – for maximum security for sensitive data. Versatile Power from 10 to 48 VDC or 18 to 30 VAC. The terminal block allows plug-and-play connection to RS-232/485. Other beneficial features to aid in troubleshooting include a Signal Strength Indicator and a Wireless Failure Output Indicator. The compact heavy-duty DIN mount industrial grade case & components with a *-wave dipole whip antenna saves panel or cabinet space. Rugged circuitry and wide temperature range (-40 degree to 85 degree C) can handle both indoor and outside applications. This protection is especially attractive for applications such as SCADA, electronic signs, and fleet management that constantly deal with electronic devices operating in fluctuating outdoor climates.
