Micromax Sensors & Automation introduces a compact metal housing rated for Class I, Division 1 hazardous locations for Banner Engineering’s intrinsically safe DX99 wireless nodes.
DX99 wireless nodes provide power to sensors directly within a hazardous area using an integrated battery power supply that produces an intrinsically safe (IS) power source for the radio transceiver as well as external third party sensors.
Equipped with the new housing from Micromax, the DX99 wireless nodes offer greater versatility while maintaining their convenient single chamber design, placing the battery, wiring terminal and radio together for easy mounting and connection to the sensors.
Chris Dales, Business Development Manager at Banner Engineering says that DX99 nodes have helped Banner transform the market segments of wireless and hazardous area sensing.
He adds that with the integrated IS power for the radio transceiver and sensing device, DX99 facilitates endless possibilities for monitoring process variables on equipment typically located far from existing wired infrastructure.
Key features of DX99 wireless nodes:
- Designed for industrial process applications
- Creates secure and reliable wireless networks
- Offers a combination of input options including Discrete, Analogue, Thermocouple and RTD
- Radios transmit and receive wireless data up to 3 miles, 150mw with 2dBi antenna while consuming very little power
- Low-power electronics combined with unique sampling technology provide a standalone solution that can operate for years on a single battery
- Additional accessories including flange and pipe mounting brackets are available
