Sealevel Systems Announces SeaI/O W-series Wireless Modules

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(TM) 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° to 70°C and optional extended range from -40° to +85°C.

SeaI/O W-series module prices start at $589 and product is available immediately from stock. All SeaI/O products are covered by Sealevel’s lifetime warranty.
