FreeWave Launches New Suite of IO Expansion Products
Sep 09, 2011 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
FreeWave Technologies announced a new suite of IO Expansion products for customers.
According to a release, FreeWave's IO Expansion modules increase the degree of monitoring, control and optimization, and offer expandable wired and wireless IO.
"Our IO Expansion products allow operators to build on existing network communications while expanding real-time performance management and condition monitoring," said Andrejs Rozitis, product manager at FreeWave. "With our stackable IO Expansion Module, customers not only benefit from increased performance, but also achieve cost savings with the ability to easily add IO points to a radio or serial base. Today, we've taken our IO Expansion one step further by allowing users to customize their networks and select the ideal number of isolated digital inputs and isolated relay digital outputs for their individual application."
The Company said the new IO Expansion modules offer internal user selectable pull up and pull down resistors for all non-isolated inputs to ease product installation and reduce the number of external components. Additionally, the IO Expansion products carry the same measurement accuracy of analog inputs, and can snap directly onto FreeWave radios or connect to any other serial communication device, thereby leveraging customers' existing hardware investments.
The flexibility of IO Expansion allows it to be used for a variety of applications. In oil and gas, it is used for multiple well pad applications to obtain additional data points from the wellhead, storage tanks, separator, pipeline injection, drive and flare. In electric power, a higher concentration of IO points in a single connection simplifies transformer monitoring and eases environmental and condition monitoring of coal ash ponds. The water/wastewater market also benefits from IO Expansion with the ability to monitor and control more variables in water towers, storage ponds, pumps, drives, lift stations and chemical pumps.
"The addition of new IO Expansion models demonstrates our efforts to offer the leading IO products in the market place," said Ashish Sharma, chief marketing officer at FreeWave. "Our customers are the number one priority at FreeWave, and we will continue to develop products that not only fit their needs, but enable the most reliable and efficient communication networks."
FreeWave Technologies manufactures spread spectrum and licensed radios for mission-critical data transmission.
