SignalFire's Multi Input/Output (MIO) now has new features
SignalFire Wireless Telemetry expanded the capabilities of its Multi Input/Output (MIO) Module. It now connects directly (Modbus) with programmable logic controllers (PLCs) or can be configured to perform autonomous local control whenever a set threshold is met, triggering a relay output.
When operating in non-wireless Modbus mode, the SignalFire Multi I/O Module can be connected directly to a user's controller via Modbus RS-485 or operate independently without any outside device controlling it. The module can also be connected wirelessly (or wired) to a monitoring device (PLC) to monitor status.
With 8 analog and 6 digital inputs (the DI's can totalize), the Multi I/O Module can be connected to a variety of devices such as pressure, flow, or level sensors, motor controllers or radar sensors. Two relay outputs are offered for control. Units can be daisy chained for added flexibility. Ultra-low power design supports long-term operation using solar power. Units are certified to Class 1 Division 2, Temp Code T4, Groups C&D, CSA C22.2 No. 213, UL 61010-1, and CSA C22.2#61010-1 for operation in harsh conditions and challenging terrains.
