Wireless controller for IIoT applications

March 2016 Industrial Wireless

RET Automation has introduced the Sure Cross DXM100 industrial wireless controller, designed to facilitate communications for Ethernet connectivity or Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications. Available with an internal Sure Cross DX80 Wireless Gateway or a MultiHop Data Radio, this powerful Modbus communications device reliably connects local wireless networks with the Internet and/or host systems.

To satisfy multiple application requirements, the DXM100 controller offers several wired and wireless connectivity options to easily share data between local and remote equipment. The cellular modem option eliminates the need for IT infrastructures to connect remote equipment, while the integrated Sure Cross wireless radio option enables Modbus connectivity to equipment.

“By integrating Banner’s wireless radio, cellular connectivity and local I/O, our new DXM100 wireless controller provides a proven platform for IIoT applications,” said Tim Hazelton, product manager, Banner Wireless. “With unique Internet messaging tools and easy programming capabilities, the DXM100 ensures complete connectivity and communication.”

Banner’s DXM100 wireless controller includes a logic controller with easy programming options for simple operation and guaranteed control. It can be programmed using action rules and ScriptBasic, allowing freedom when creating custom sensing and control sequences. The DXM100 also allows for secure email and text messaging for alarms, alerts and data log files.

The DXM100 incorporates several automation protocols into its system, including Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP and EtherNet/IP.

The controller also features on-board universal and programmable I/O ports for simple connection to local sensors, indicators and control equipment.

Designed with an interactive, programmable user interface consisting of an LCD screen and four LED indicators, operators can quickly access system status and setup, view selected events or data and perform site surveys.
