This product is an analog input terminal that sends inputted analog signals wirelessly in the Sub-1GHz band. *1 Data is sent to Ethernet gateway (Master) of the Wireless I/O series.
With strength against obstacles, capability of long-distance communications in the Sub-1GHz band, and mesh support, it is suitable to control or monitor devices that are spread in the wide area.
Four channels of 10-bit non-isolated analog input are equipped to support ±10V bipolar input. This product provides excellent cost performance afforded by focusing on solely analog input function.
With the provided driver library API-AIO(WDM), you can create application software for Windows using various programming languages supporting Win32 API functions such as Visual Basic and Visual C ++.
*This product should always be used along with the Wireless I/O series Ethernet gateway (Master).
*Driver library can be downloaded from the Contec website.
*AI-1004LY-WQ-US can be used in the United States.
*1 Sub-1GHz band indicates frequency bands of 1GHz and below. Available frequency band of the product depends on the model. The AI-1004LY-WQ-US can be used in the 915MHz band (The United States).
This product converts the input signals and transmits to the gateway wirelessly in the Sub-1GHz band. From the LAN port of a PC, analog signals (±10V) can be easily input via the gateway.
The Sub-1GHz band, with the good wraparound characteristics of radio waves, the transmission distance (about 1 km) can be extended even there are obstacles. Stable communication can be achieved even in the environment where radio waves are mixed. As the product is suitable for long distance communication, network can be constructed on the wide area in the facilities without cable wiring.
