Tank Mesh Wireless Communication System Integrates Numerous Sensors

APG’s Tank Mesh Wireless Communication is described as a scalable and customizable telemetry solution that integrates individual 4 mA to 20 mA or 0 to 5 Vdc analog sensors and. RS-485 Modbus sensors using 900-MHz radios. Network transceivers can connect to Modbus RTU networks or directly to Ethernet via Modbus TCP/IP. Battery-operated Sentinels provide a 0.5-mile range, while Stick Transceivers can operate up to and beyond 3 miles line-of-sight. Both transceiver types are self-configuring for star or mesh networks, allowing transceivers to be placed as repeaters for communication with sensors beyond the 0.5 mile or 3+ mile limitation of individual transceivers. Other features include a one- to 10-year battery life for wireless Sentinels, Class I, Div 1, Groups C & D, T3, Intrinsically Safe (Sentinels), Class I, Div 2, Groups C & D, T5, Non-Incendive (Stick Transceivers), and multiple transceivers and multiple network integration options.
