Battery Options for Wireless Applications

SmartWireless Battery Options
Features
• High Energy Lithium Ion Technology
• Rechargeable & Replaceable/Disposable Options
• Industry Leading Run Times


Description
High energy battery packs are a necessary component in the application of any SmartWireless® gas detection system. Detcon provides several options when selecting the optimal battery back for your application. These options include rechargeable packs as well as packs with disposable/replaceable batteries. Both use lithium ion technology and are available in low and high capacity versions. While others may specify battery run times of weeks or even days, Detcon battery packs typically provide continuous run times for months at a time. Paired with a solar charging option Detcon SmartWireless® system components can provide indefinite run times. The battery packs are packaged as a plug in module that uses a mechanical guide and large surface area gold plated mating connectors. A smaller compact version is packaged with a twist-lock design. Both are housed and secured inside a Division 1 enclosure. Optional solar charging panels are available in Class I, Div 1 and Class I, Div 2 packages. Integrated safety circuitry continuously monitors each battery pack. If the discharge current exceeds the battery rating the output will be turned off until reset. If the voltage drops below operating levels the output will be turned off until the battery is recharged (rechargeables) or replaced (replaceables). Rechargeable packs are also protected from over voltage during charging.

Model RXT-300/RXT-320 SmartWireless® Transceiver

Wireless Transceiver

Features
• Universally Acceptable Frequency 2.4 GHz
• Network Wide Control Processing Capability
• Low Power Requirement
• 1-2KM Line-of-Sight Range (with external directional antenna)
• Robust Mesh Network Topology
• Network Capacity up to 32 Devices
• Flexible I/O options


Description
Detcon Model Series RXT-300 and 320 SmartWireless® transceivers are ideal for transmitting signal data in a wide range of industrial detection and alarm system applications. Both transceivers operate at a universally accepted frequency of 2.4 GHZ and are able to transmit signal data from 4-20 mA DC or serial MODBUS inputs. Wireless installations eliminate the cost of point-to-point wiring and can be as simple as a single field device communicating with a controller, or as complex as 32 field device nodes forming a seamless network with a controller, remote display, and audio/visual alarm stations. Sixteen nodes can be installed in close proximity to one another creating a plant wide network of up to 512 field devices. Wireless network integrity, security, and reliability are accomplished using direct sequence spread spectrum wireless mesh technology. Every device in the network is capable of functioning as a router and repeater for all other devices in the network. This means that subscribers can “hop” through neighboring devices to communicate with each other, thus widening network access points. This innovative technology creates a robust network that automatically routes around congestion and RF line-of-sight obstacles. Throughput improves as device density increases. While the Model RXT-320 transceiver encompasses all these advanced mesh-networking capabilities, the Model RXT-300 is designed with an additional and unique innovation in self-healing mesh networking. Unlike conventional mesh networks, the Model RXT-300’s processing power is shared among all network devices. The RXT-300 is able to automatically select another transceiver in the network to take over as the master device, should the designated master transceiver fail. As a result, the RXT-300 does not depend on a single controller to maintain network operation. This feature significantly enhances the redundancy and overall safety level of the wireless system.
