Enables swift, cost-effective implementation of M2M and IIoT installations

June 1st 2023, Aldermaston, UK: MWave, the leading RF design consultancy, today announced the launch of its I – Series Industrial Module (TC430) which is optimised to enable the cost-effective roll-out of solutions in industrial environments. allows high speed communications networks to be installed using any pre-existing infra-structure, such as coaxial cable, telephone wires, CAT5 or powerlines.

Explains Richard Welland, Director, International Sales & Marketing, MWave: “The biggest challenge faced when implementing a high-speed communications network capable of supporting Industry 4.0/IIOT practices in an existing industrial site, is installing new cabling in floors, walls and ceilings. saves all this disruption and expense, as it operates over the cabling that is already present.” systems can pass data at very high speeds – up to 2.5Gbits/s (over co-ax with MIMO) – delivering point-to-multipoint (P2MP) connectivity for up to 250 nodes.

MWave’s I – Series Industrial Module (TC430) is configured for use over power cables typically carrying 24, 32 or 48V DC (or AC). It allows up to 14 nodes to be connected to form a mesh network. This topology and node count will cover many industrial applications. The module has a single 1 Gigabit Ethernet Interface which will satisfy most requirements at an affordable cost. The module also supports RS485 or RS232 serial interfaces that are commonly found in industrial installations such as factory automation and telemetry.

The module is supplied DIN rail mountable in a robust aluminium cast enclosure, and comes with connectors for ease of installation. Status LEDs, Reset and Configuration buttons are recessed to stop accidental use.
