The recently introduced WNM Wireless Network Module from Moore Industries is said to be an accurate and reliable solution for sending process signals between remote field sites. The WNM provides a low-cost wireless communications link between field sites in rugged or impassable terrain, with a single unit transmitting for up to 30 miles and the ability to act as a repeater for virtually unlimited transmission range.
When set in the Smart Switch Ethernet (SSE) mode, the WNM enhances the speed and reliability of data packet transmission by determining the most efficient path of broadcast on a packet-by-packet basis.
The WNM is suitable for use with the Moore Industries NCS NET Concentrator System, as well as other SCADA and distributed I/O systems. WNM models are available for data communications networks that use Ethernet and serial (RS-485) communications.
