APG Introduces New Tank Mesh Wireless Communication Telemetry Solution
Built on 900 MHz radios, Tank Mesh Wireless Communication allows you to extend your Modbus network without exhausting your budget.
Logan, Utah, USA -- Automation Products Group, Inc. (APG) introduces a new wireless telemetry solution, Tank Mesh Wireless Communication.
Tank Mesh Wireless Communication is a scalable and customizable telemetry solution that integrates individual 4-20 mA or 0-5 VDC analog sensors and RS-485 Modbus sensors using 900 MHz radios. Network transceivers can connect to Modbus RTU networks or directly to Ethernet via Modbus TCP/IP.
'The APG Tank Mesh Wireless radio system is a robust long-range wireless mesh network designed for remote monitoring and control in challenging outdoor environments,' said Josh Waters, Director of Sales at APG. 'The system works with level, pressure and flow meters, as well as offering critical asset control of valves, pumps, fans, heaters and an array of other devices.'
Battery-operated Sentinels provide up to 0.5 mile radio range, while Stick Transceivers can operate at up to and beyond 3 miles line-of-sight. Both transceiver types are self-configurating for star or mesh networks, allowing transceivers to be placed as repeaters for communication with sensors beyond the 0.5 mile or 3+ mile limitation of individual transceivers.
Tank Mesh Wireless features include:
- 4-20 mA or 0-5 VDC sensor integration
- 1 - 10 year battery life for wireless Sentinels
- Class I, Div 1, Groups C & D, T3, Intrinsically Safe (Sentinels)
- Class I, Div 2, Groups C & D, T5, Non-Incendive (Stick Transceivers)
- Multiple transceivers and multiple network integration options
