FreeWave Technologies Extends 900 MHz IO Series With Final Release of FGR2-IOS Radio

FGR2-IOS marks first of new family of products and configurations

BOULDER, Colo., July 30 /PRNewswire/ -- FreeWave Technologies, the largest independent provider of high performance spread spectrum and licensed radio products and services, today announced the final release of its FGR2-IOS wireless spread spectrum radio in multiple configurations. The FGR2-IOS radio and related IO system components complement FreeWave's existing line of IO radios (FGRIO-M, FGRIO-S).

FreeWave's FGR2-IOS (30VIO) radio provides outstanding performance and versatility in wireless transmission of process-control signals. The FGR2-IOS provides long range, remote control and monitoring of tanks, lifting stations, pumps, flow meters, fluid levels, water sources, temperatures and pressures typical of the water/wastewater and oil and gas industries.

Eliminating the need for signal wire connections at the master and thereby greatly reducing costs, the FGR2-IOS delivers data from remote analog and digital devices over a wireless link to a remote terminal unit (RTU) or programmable logic controller (PLC).

The FGR2-IOS radio with embedded IO functions is available either as a board level device or in an enclosure. Both versions operate in one of two modes: Modbus and Wire Replacement. In Modbus mode, the FGR2-IOS can be directly connected as an IO peripheral to a SCADA network. For wire replacement (wireless signal replication), the FGR2-IOS can operate as a slave linked to an FGRIO-M (master) radio. The enclosed version also includes switchable and protected internal resistors for convenience when using 4-20mA sensors.

Wireless IO Applications

FreeWave IO radios can be used in a broad range of industrial applications. Some applications served today include:

    --  Tank level monitoring
    --  Plunger lift control
    --  Pump off control
    --  Valve control
    --  Temperature and pressure monitoring
    --  Compressor station monitoring and control

    FGR2-IOS Key Features
    --  Range:  60 miles with clear line of site
    --  Output power:  1 Watt
    --  Input voltage:  6-30 VDC
    --  Enclosure:  A new, ruggedized enclosure version available with a din
        rail mount or mounting shoe
    --  Compatibility:  Talks over the air, with FGR serial radios and FGRIO-S

Features Common to FreeWave's Existing FGR2-IOS & FGRIO-S Radios

Features common to both the new FGR2-IOS and the existing FGRIO-S radios include:

    --  High resolution
    --  Low power consumption
    --  IO counts:
          AI - 4
          AO - 2 in Modbus on the FGR2-IOS
          DI - 4 in Wire Replacement Mode; 6 in Modbus Mode
          DO - 2
          Sensor power control
    --  Programmable for either Wire Replacement Mode or Modbus Mode
    --  Integrator's IO (All-In-One) Solar Kit

New Integrator's Solar Power Kit

In addition, FreeWave also announced the new Integrator's IO Solar Power Kit that provides an all-in-one solar kit for IO radios to simplify ordering into a one-step process. The new solar kit is ideally suited for sourcing and sizing solar systems for power remote use at IO locations. It can be used with either a whip antenna for short-range line-of-sight applications or with an external antenna, both of which come separately. The kit is recommended for use with FreeWave IO radios and is ready to set up with clear, easy instructions.


All configurations of FreeWave's new FGR2-IOS are available now for shipment. For more information, visit FreeWave's Website at http://www.freewave.com
