Wireless I / O box for the wireless transmission of switching signals
The RF I/O-Box from steute is a collection point for up to four switches or sensors and can transmit signals wirelessly from all switches and sensors simultaneously. The wireless system is particularly suitable for signal transmission from moving parts, such as grippers, tools, or in applications where cable rubbers, which are currently subject to wear, are used.
Troublesome wiring in compact machines
Another application for the RF I/O-Box is very compact machines (or machine parts) where it is difficult to install wiring. The wireless system increases the availability of the machine or installation because no interference can occur through cabling.
Connectable to multiple switches
The I/O-Box collects signals from up to four mechanical switches, regardless of make. The battery version is suitable for the connection of inductive sensors, e.g. the RF IS M8 - M30 series from steute. These are especially designed for wireless applications and require a voltage of 3.6 V. The 24V DC version of the I/O-Box can also process signals from all common 24V PNP sensors.
Universal Transmitter makes sensors "Wireless-network-compatible"
With the RF I/O-NET module from Steute, existing mechanical switches and contactless sensors can be integrated into a sWave.NET wireless system. The new RF I/O-NET Wireless Universal Transmitter facilitates the wireless transmission of signals from switches and sensors that are actually wired.
Benefits for wireless network users
For users of wireless networks, the range of network-compatible products has been expanded. This offers advantages when planning new wireless systems, but also when retrofitting existing installations with wireless networks. Here, existing switches and sensors can be integrated into the wireless network using the new wireless universal transmitter. The additional effort is cost-effective because up to four switches or sensors can be connected to such a device.
