SignalFire Wireless Telemetry released the Mini Wireless I/O Module, which, the company reported, provides a cost-effective wireless control solution for customers. It integrates an antenna capable of a 3-mile range, and allows a pair of modules to communicate in a point-to-point mode or directly to a SignalFire Gateway.
The module includes two relays to control actuators, valves and pumps plus two digital inputs for pulse counting or on/off-type sensors, such as pressure switches, valve position sensors, etc. It also includes an analog input to measure the signal from a 1- to 5-volt (DC) transmitter. The small DIN rail form factor with low power consumption ensures ease of installation or retrofit in existing electrical cabinets.
