SureCross DX80 FlexPower Nodes


A Node provides sensing capability in a remote area and communicates data back to a Gateway.

  • One or more Nodes in the same frequency band can be used with one Gateway.
  • FlexPower Nodes work off of 10 to 30V dc line-power or low-power consumption options (3.6 to 5.5V dc) from solar or battery modules.
  • Configurable switched power outputs provide power for sensors (up to 24V dc) from FlexPower Supply Modules.
  • Each Node is equipped with up to twelve distinct I/O for gathering data to be concentrated at the Gateway.
  • Models are available with the following I/O configurations:
    • Analog and discrete
    • Temperature and discrete (thermocouple and thermistor)
    • Temperature (RTD)
    • M-GAGE
  • Nodes feature Cyclical Redundancy Checking (CRC) to ensure the accuracy of data transmission.
  • 900 MHz or 2.4 GHz frequency models are available to accommodate worldwide communication standards.
  • Menu and configuration access push buttons provide click-through menu-driven configuration of basic network settings.
  • Rotary switches for network identity and device address are easy to set and change.
  • Models with internal or external antennas are available, depending on range.
  • Wiring terminals are accessible without removal from mounting.
  • Base is designed for four-point flat mounting or DIN-rail mounting.
  • Housing is rated IEC IP67; NEMA 6 for long-lasting performance in rugged environments.
