MTL Wireless Applications Cable replacement Cabling a sensor into a monitoring system can exceed the cost of the measurement equipment. Significant time can also be spent on installation which ultimately affects decisions on whether a variable is monitored or not. MTL wireless networks make it more cost effective to deploy a sensor or transducer link. Real cost benefits can be seen for distances over 200 metres and in some cases at even shorter ranges. The MTL cable replacement solution is easy to install without configuration, reducing installation and commissioning time scales. Simplex...

Multi-purpose sensor I/O networks Transferring sensor data back to the control room or for output on a remote location can require complex cabling and marshalling. MTL’s sensor I/O interfaces can be deployed to send and receive sensor signal data from multiple devices using 4-20mA, 0-10V or digital inputs and outputs. Several banks of I/O can be connected to a single radio and then send over a distance through point to point, point to multipoint or meshing repeater networks. Configurable I/O interface permits different device types to connect through a single network Multiple banks of I/O...
