Plexus IWS Remote - Model 025T Series - Surface Temperature Sensor
The Intelligent Wireless System (IWS) nodes comprise of a range of distributed wireless products from Plexus Controls providing advanced supervisory, control and data acquisition (SCADA) functionality for commercial and industrial applications. With 'out the box' auto mesh wireless functionality, IWS nodes can be easily installed at a remote location and connected to standard sensors, supporting 4-20mA, 0-5V, 0-10V, HART, temperature, pressure and many other interfaces. Either through a direct wireless connection or automatically hopping through a series of repeater IWS nodes, the sensor data is relayed back to the IWS Hub for termination over Ethernet to the IWS Management Server application for display, logging and alarm management.
The Remote Termination Unit R-025T Is a completely integrated radio and surface temperature sensor package including 2 x AA batteries for operation. The R-025T has been designed to clamp onto a 2” to 6” diameter pipe or onto ducting and provide regular temperature readings through the Ethernet hub unit and back to a central database. An early warning of temperature level changes can be programmed through simple level limits that are entered into the NMS software or a more sophisticated package that can read the database and provide histograms and analysis information.
The R-025T is powered by internal 2 x AA Alkaline or Lithium batteries (not supplied). Battery life is expected to be 1 to 3 years depending on the frequency of the reading cycles (programmable through Plexus Element Configuration Tool). Using the 025T systems internal antenna communications range is within 50-100ft (indoors) or up to 1km (outdoors) from the hub unit.
