Board-level gateway module for wireless sensors

October 24, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Banner Engineering introduced the SureCross B2Q gateway module, developed to provide embeddable, dependable and cost-effective communication capabilities for the company's Q45 wireless sensor network.

The module features discrete outputs and DIP switches to map inputs from up to two wireless sensors to the Gateway’s outputs. With its board-level design and easy mounting capabilities, Q45 B2Q gateway is easily embedded inside equipment, enclosures and on control panels. The unit initiates communication with the Wireless Q45 sensors and accurately controls timing and configuration for the entire network. Transceivers provide bidirectional communication between the Gateway and Q45, including fully acknowledged data transmission. Lost RF links are detected and relevant outputs set to user-defined conditions. The self-contained, wireless standard sensor solution replaces costly wired solutions with untethered communications and easy deployment. Designed with a proprietary, self-contained battery, radio and sensor, the SureCross Q45 improves efficiency by monitoring and coordinating multiple machines and processes.
