SeaI/O Wireless – A Solution for What Was Impractical and Impossible

September 12, 2007

Borrowing from the well-known creed, Earle Foster, VP Sales and Marketing for Sealevel Systems, proclaimed, “Neither obstacles, nor temperatures, nor moving devices to be monitored shall stop new SeaI/O W-series from sending and receiving signals. That’s the advantage of wireless SeaI/O® modules. Many devices that were impractical or impossible to monitor with traditional cable solutions can now be monitored with Sealevel’s wireless SeaI/O modules.”

Wireless capability is the newest addition to the popular SeaI/O family of data acquisition solutions. The SeaI/O W-series is completely compatible with industry standards, communicating over 802.11b/g wireless networks using WEP, WPA-TKIP, and WPA2-AES encryption standards.

“The SeaI/O W-series opens a new set of really cool possibilities when combined with other SeaI/O modules,” Foster said with noticeable enthusiasm in his voice. “A SeaI/O W-series module can be daisy-chained with up to 247 SeaI/O expansion modules using convenient pass-through connectors. So you have this incredibly expansive, versatile distributed control and monitoring network connected wirelessly to the host. This is awesome for our customers,” concluded a very excited Foster.

All SeaI/O modules operate from 9-30VDC, are powered by terminal block or DC jack, and are available with host connection options including Ethernet, USB, RS-485, and RS-232. They also boast features that have solidified the SeaI/O product line as the industry leader in field-friendly implementation: software or switch addressing, removable screw terminals for field wiring, and comprehensive software configuration/diagnostic tools.

SeaI/O modules are ideal for a wide variety of applications including process control, data acquisition, broadcast automation, security, and facility management. They have an operating temperature range from 0°C to 70°C and optional extended range from -40°C to 85°C.

All SeaI/O products are covered by Sealevel’s lifetime warranty.
