RadiantReader Wireless Communication Hub


RadiantReader Wireless Communication Hub turns any laptop or desktop PC into a wireless controller for MeshGuard or portable monitors. Using either an RS 232 serial or Ethernet port, the Radiant Reader transmits wireless sensor data to a PC running Safety Suite software. Designed for outdoor use in non-hazardous environments.

RadiantReader can communicate with up to 100 remote monitors directly. Safety Suite supports up to five RadiantReaders to give a total capacity of 500 monitors. The RadiantReader can connect directly with a PC via its COM port, or one or more RadiantReaders can be networked through a TCP/IP connection via Ethernet to push sensor data to Safety Suite or third party control system through MODBUS TCP/IP. A networked setup allows visibility of 500 monitors on other PCs running Safety Suite.
