915U-2 Wireless I/O and Gateway

915U-2 Wireless Mesh Networking I/O and Gateway

Gateway is a multiple I/O node that extends communications to sensors and actuators in local, remote, or difficult‑to‑reach locations. Designed with a long‑range, license‑free wireless transceiver, the 915U‑2 can provide IP‑based mesh networking across sprawling industrial environments typical of industrial applications.

Capable of ad‑hoc mesh networking, roaming and discovery, as well as deterministic mesh, the 915U‑2 can serve as an end node, a routing node, or a network gateway. Scalable to thousands of nodes, its gather‑scatter and block mapping technology offers efficient utilization of network resources and eases integration into complex monitoring and control systems. Integrated Modbus® server capability allows further I/O expansion through the use of ELPRO 115S expansion modules.
