The DX80 wireless system enables simple and fast transmission of process data from the field to higher level control systems. In both versions, DX80-PM for simple cable replacement as well as in DX80 star topology for a complex network, gateways communicate via radio signals with the nodes in the field and transfer the signals from the field devices to the controller. Nodes to be used directly in hazardous areas are available in metal housing in the DX99 series.
Data radios from the DX80DR series transmit serial data such as Modbus RTU telegrams. They form a self-organizing tree topology, which is extended via repeaters. Sensors and actuators can also be directly connected to the device, whose signal can then be processed via a register access.
