Wireless I/O Gateways for Industrial Sensor Networks

The most basic Sure Cross® sensor network includes a Gateway system controller and one or more Nodes that monitor I/O in remote locations.

DX80 Simple Network

A Sure Cross Gateway is the wireless network master device used to control network timing, schedule communication traffic, and hold the configuration for the entire I/O sensor network. Similar to how a gateway device on a wired network acts as a “portal” between networks, the Sure Cross Gateway acts as the portal between the wireless network and the central control process. Every wireless I/O sensor network requires one Gateway device.

Gateway models are available with discrete I/O, analog I/O, and a mix of discrete and analog I/O. Models ending in C use external terminal blocks instead of internal terminal blocks. These "C" models are Class I, Division 2 certified when installed in a suitable enclosure. Certifications are listed on the Classified Areas page. Refer to the 3D Models page to download AutoCAD, STEP, IGES, and PDF models.

The Wireless I/O Network Manual is the full product manual for the DX80 devices and contains detailed information about the menu system, operation, installation, maintenance and repairs, troubleshooting, accessories, and the agency certifications for these devices. Manual 132607

For a basic description of how antennas work, how to connect a remote antenna system, and the differences between omni and Yagi antennas, refer to Antenna Basics. There are many possible installation configurations for your wireless network. Refer to the System Layouts webpage for a few examples or download the System Layouts document for more detailed examples of some wireless networks.

To order the internal antenna models, replace the "S" as the 9th digit with a "W." Internal antennas require an additional week for manufacture and shipping. For example, DX80G9M6S6P6 is the external antenna model and DX80G9M6W6P6 is the internal antenna model.

 

DX80 GatewayPros

The Sure Cross DX80 GatewayPro combines, in one unit, the function of a Sure Cross DX80 Gateway with the ability to interface to Ethernet using Modbus/TCP or EtherNet/IP™ protocols. The GatewayPro has a serial port as well as an industrial Ethernet port. There are two basic models of the GatewayPro: DX80P*T6* and DX80P*A6*.

  • The GatewayPro “T” models provide a simple interface to serial communication protocols such as Modbus/TCP and EtherNet/IP.
  • The GatewayPro “A” models enable full configuration capability and access to many advanced settings for complete custom setup of the Sure Cross product line. This device can be used for complex mapping and to interface with existing PLC or DCS systems.

Connect a GatewayPro to a host system using the industrial Ethernet connection on the DX80 GatewayPro. To connect the GatewayPro directly to the host system without using an Ethernet switchbox/hub, some host systems may require a crossover cable. By default, the GatewayPro is configured to use Modbus/TCP server. To use EtherNet/IP, connect the GatewayPro to a managed switch. For more information, see Sure Cross Wireless I/O Product Manual or Host Configuration Manual.
