Banner Engineering has introduced the Sure Cross DXM100 industrial wireless controller, designed to facilitate communications for Ethernet connectivity or industrial Internet of Things (IoT) applications. Available with an internal Sure Cross DX80 Wireless Gateway or a MultiHop Data Radio, this Modbus communications device connects local wireless networks with the Internet and/or host systems.
To satisfy multiple application requirements, the DXM100 controller offers several wired and wireless connectivity options to share data between local and remote equipment. The cellular modem option eliminates the need for IT infrastructures to connect remote equipment, while the integrated Sure Cross wireless radio option enables Modbus connectivity to equipment.
Banner’s DXM100 wireless controller includes a logic controller with programming options for simple operation and guaranteed control. It can be programmed using action rules and ScriptBasic, allowing freedom when creating custom sensing and control sequences. The DXM100 also allows for secure e-mail and text messaging for alarms, alerts and data log files.
The DXM100 incorporates several automation protocols into its system, including Modbus RTU, Modbus TCP and EtherNet/IP. The controller also features on-board universal and programmable I/O ports for simple connection to local sensors, indicators and control equipment.
Designed with an interactive, programmable user interface consisting of an LCD screen and four LED indicators, operators can access system status and setup, view selected events or data and perform site surveys.
