Automation Group supplies the newly release WIO System by Oleumtech, an economical solution for control cable wire replacement. It can make connecting two difficult to join points as easy as mounting a fuse, eliminating costly trenching or the requirement for running conduit.
The Oleumtech WIO System offers a bi-directional, point-to-point communication where you can place inputs and outputs on both sides. Unlike every other telemetry option there is no programming or software needed, making it easy to use.
- System attaches onto 35mm DIN rail with easy, clip-on mounting system.
- Rapid, reliable wireless connectivity.
- 1 second response time or faster – see specs.
- Factory paired, secure Radio System keeps network protected from intrusions.
- Digital, 4-20 mA, and 0-10 V I/O available (isolated).
- Expandable: add up to 16 I/O Modules per Radio Station in any combination.
- Reduced wire clutter: single power termination.
- Wiring label provided on each Module for quick reference.
- FailSafe Alarm Outputs at both Radio Stations.
- Digital Module provides various FailSafe output modes: on, off, last known value.
- Save money and time on installation and maintenance.
- Just plain easy: auto-config / no software / no programming
When faced with having to replace an existing hardwired system or installing new infrastructure, the WIO® System is the fastest, easiest, and most economical methods for wirelessly duplicating discrete, 4-20mA, or 0-10V signal wire. All I/O Modules feature isolated inputs and outputs.
The WIO System requires no configuration or software and is extremely quick and easy to install. The WIO System mounts to 35 mm DIN rail. Then, you just need a screwdriver and a wire stripper to terminate I/Os and power.
Faster deployment & less maintenance than hardwires
Significant amount of time and money can be saved by avoiding permitting and trenching to run wires. Because deployment time is so rapid using the WIO System, you can even use it as an emergency backup system when a hardwired system is down for repair or maintenance.
And by removing the hardwire run, it also eliminates the potential cost for future wire failure replacement and maintenance due to natural disasters such as lightning. Troubleshooting also become much easier and quicker with the WIO System since there are less points of failure than a hardwire system.
Wireless, simply done smarter, faster, secure, failsafe
In the WIO System, the Radio Modules control and power everything. They manage all signal traffic and provide critical alarms and diagnostics when either RF link failure or I/O mismatch is detected and trigger NPN digital outputs for notification. At the same time, the Radio Module overrides all outputs into the user’s predetermined FailSafe output states on each I/O Module.
Each output is independently controlled. It also provides the ability to locally force outputs when setting up the system without needing a real signal source. The paired Radio Modules can communicate up to 100ms with a default response time of 1 second.
The Radio Modules utilize AES encryption for securely delivering data and are offered in 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz (license-free ISM), in both domestic (US) and international versions. Antennas and antenna cables are sold separately so that you can select the appropriate antenna and cable lengths to fit your application.
Custom, scalable I/O expansion
The Radio Kit is the foundation of the WIO System that allows you to build your custom I/O solution. The two(2) factory-paired Radio Modules are packaged in the WIO Radio Kit.
The Kit also includes all the mounting hardware so you simply need to add the I/O Modules of your choice. Up to five (5) pairs of I/O Modules of any kind can be operated using the Radio Kit. If additional I/O Modules are needed for expansion, the WIO System can support up to sixteen (16) pairs of I/O Modules using a longer DataRail.
The WIO System ALS offers an Advanced User Interface for PC. By connecting the PC to the Radio Module’s mini-USB port, you can check vital system health such as RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication), view input/output status, adjust transmit power level, and adjust RF timeout interval.
You can also locally force local outputs, set FailSafe settings individually for analog outputs. Digital outputs are set using DIP switches that are physically on the device.
