Wireless transmitters save on level sensor installation

Reduce the cost and complexity of installing a silo inventory-management system using this company’s wireless-communication solutions. A simple point-to-point configuration eliminates the hassle and cost of running wires. Point-to-multipoint systems are easily scaled for more complex deployments using additional wireless units, base stations and wireless repeaters. Either setup can transmit up to a mile line-of-sight outdoors or 500 ft indoors. For easy point-to-point communication, the WR-30-TR wireless bridge uses two weatherproof units to transmit analog, Modbus or discrete data. For more complex applications, a custom point-to-multipoint system can be built using two or more WR-90-TR units in conjunction with a base station. Each base station accommodates up to 16 dual input/output expansion cards to transmit analog, digital or Modbus signals to a maximum of 32 WR-90-TR field units. — BinMaster, Lincoln, Neb.
