PlantLincTM Family of Lower-Power, Lower-Range Lower-cost I/O to I/O ModemsThe PLR580 wireless I/O modem has been retired, replaced by the PlantLincTM PLR6000 series. Although the 6000 series is not backward compatible with the "5 series" these upgraded solutions are available for both the 900MHz and 2.4 GHz license-free bands and offer a wired expander for additional I/O points for a Remote wireless site. Additionally, the PlantLinc Family line expanded to include serial, Ethernet as well as Ethernet/serial protocol to I/O and I/O to I/O options in both the 900MHz and the 2.4GHz license-free bands offering its customers lower power, lower range and lower price than the long-range SRM and CIX Families, but using the same robust frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) technology and with the advantage of compatibility with their long-range counterparts, thus supporting a flexible network design for duo (mixed long-range and shorter range) networks.
The PlantLinc Family of industrial grade modems were designed for cost-effective, lower-range PLC communications up to 5 miles in the 900 MHz license-free band, and upt to 2 miles in the 2.4 MHz license-free band. They employ frequency hopping transmission techniques for excellent reliability in noisy plant environments. It is a cost effective alternative to WiFi and other short to medium range applications where band crowding is increasingly an issue and to avoid cable installation, trenching and leasing expensive phone lines to remote locations. For greater distances, the CIX Family is the long-range alternative.
PLR6430 900 MHz I/O modem and PLR6530 2.4 GHz I/O modemFeatures
The PLR units are field configurable and support a number of operating modes including Master, Remote, Repeater and Remote/Repeater mode for added flexibility. Use PlantLinc radios to accommodate most in-plant wireless projects using easy to install omni directional antennas or directional antennas when a stronger signal is required.
