Overview / Features
This product is an Ethernet gateway that converts Ethernet into wireless in the Sub-1GHz band.
Data from the Wireless I/O series terminal (Slave) can be sent to a PC via Ethernet, or received data from PC can be sent via Ethernet.
With strength against obstacles, the long-distance communications enabled by wireless Sub-1GHz band, and mesh communication support, it is suitable to control or monitor devices that are spread in the wide area.
By using a driver library appropriate to the setting terminal, applications can be created with API functions that support programming languages.
This product also supports Modbus TCP Slave, which makes it possible to control devices and collect data from the higher communication devices containing Modbus Master function.
* This product should always be used along with the Wireless I/O series terminal (Slave).
* Driver library can be downloaded from the CONTEC website.
* The GW1-ETH-WQ-CN can be used in China market only.
Supports Sub-1GHz band wireless with excellent transmission distance
- This product converts Ethernet (Wired LAN) communication into 868 MHz band wireless communication. The 868 MHz band has 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 an 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.
Highly reliable mesh communication
- With wireless mesh technology, even if communication is interrupted, communication routes can be automatically changed, and communication can be continued and stabilized, making it possible to build a robust wireless network.
Supports Modbus TCP Slave protocol
- Modbus is a communication protocol widely adopted in the industrial field. It is possible to control devices and collect data from the higher communication devices containing Modbus Master function.
Adaptable to a wide range of temperature
- This product is capable of operating in the temperature between -20 and + 60°C. It can be installed in the various environments.
Windows version of driver library API-PAC(W32)
- Driver software with Win32API function (DLL) to support the function is ready to use per terminal.
The driver software contains sample programs such as VisualBasic and VisualC++, and the diagnosis program to check the software operation.
Easy mounting on DIN rail
- This product can be mounted on DIN rail with an optional fixing bracket.
