MVI56-WA-PWP

The MVI56-WA-PWP Wireless Gateway creates a powerful wireless connection between devices located remotely, and the MVI56-WA-PWP in a ControlLogix rack.

Features and Benefits

ProSoft Wireless Protocol (PWP) offers versatility where a mix of control devices requires cooperation with each other. This involves sharing of information across the applications regardless of device or network type, often at high speed. Wireless bandwidth utilization is optimized by using efficient communication methods. The protocol supports Unicast, Broadcast and Multicast group messaging. Efficiency is based on the fact each device on the "wireless" network can produce these types of messages and each device determines which of these messages to consume.

Applications

The module offers one-to-one or one-to-many wireless connection scenarios. Data is exchanged between devices and/or networks using an efficient but powerful wireless protocol. This common database provides the backbone communications for various field devices using different networks.
