When transmitting sensor and actuator signals between control and field applications are difficult to access, and where movable plant components make cabling difficult, Weidmuller has extended its SAI programme with for ‘wireless communications’: SAI Bluetooth
Joining up without Connections
Bluetooth (IEEE802.15.1) has established itself as an industrial standard for interference-proof wireless communications. Communicating without any cable connections with up to 6 SAI Bluetooth slaves to which the sensors and actuators are in turn connected, the SAI Bluetooth gateways are integrated as stations in the Profibus DP network in the accustomed manner. That means when deploying the maximum 31 SAI Bluetooth gateways allowed in a Profibus network, up to 186 slave modules can be implemented.
