Receiver for integrating signal towers into wireless systems
RF UBR - steute nexy
The steute business unit "Wireless" extends its range of wireless sensors and receivers with a new wireless receiver with which signal towers can be integrated into the nexy wireless network.
The RF UBR device (universal bidirectional receiver) facilitates the activation of existing or new signal towers from different manufacturers. This means that operators of machines and plants can receive information from an ERP, warehouse management or eKanban system, for example. In addition, the receiver can be used for real-time monitoring and data analysis in production, assembly and intralogistics.
The RF UBR is available with 24 VDC or 85 - 230 VAC power supply. With the latter version, a separate power supply for the signal tower is not necessary. The power supply of the wireless receiver can also be used to power the signal tower. The wireless connection is the industry-compatible and internationally deployed sWave.NET wireless protocol.
The switching outputs of the wireless receiver can be configured and visualised via the Sensor Bridge web interface of the nexy wireless network.
From network to local signal towers
With the new Wireless Receiver, users have the ability to communicate status changes remotely from a network to the local signal towers. By integrating the signal towers into the wireless network, production bottlenecks can be detected immediately. The shop floor is transparent, machine monitoring is easier and material shortages can be detected and eliminated without delay.
Universal wireless receiver
This new receiver therefore has an important role in the nexy wireless network, which is mainly installed in industrial intralogistics applications. In addition to activating signal towers, the RF UBR can also be used as a universal wireless receiver or control element, for example to open and close industrial gates.
