Deeter Electronics Inc., Tallmadge, OH, has added a wireless Modbus gateway to its range of wireless sensor network products. The gateway lets you connect a Deeter wireless sensor network (WSN) to a Modbus system to monitor physical or environmental conditions, such as liquid levels, temperature, humidity, vibration, pressure, and proximity. The gateway communicates with the Modbus network via an RS-485 port in slave mode; it coordinates the WSN and manages DA from the sensors using the IEEE 802.15.4 protocol in the 2.4 GHz ISM band. The gateway can be installed as part of a new control or measurement system or as an extension to an existing wired sensor system to add wireless sensors.
