Typical applications for the ProRF Encoder system include situations
where it would be difficult and/or expensive to route cabling between
the Encoder and the Digital Readout.
Encoder cable lengths over 20-30 feet.
Installations where the Encoder and Readout are
located in separate rooms or buildings.
Applications involving excessive motion of the
Encoder cabling resulting in excess wear.
Applications that would require the Encoder cable
being installed in the same conduit/wire way with high voltage
cables over long distances (greater than 10 feet).
The system is easy to install and requires minimum maintenance. It is
backwards compatible with all previously manufactured ProScale
IEEE standard 802.15.4 radio modules operating
at 2.4GHz provide two way communications. This helps guarantee
the reliable transfer of position data and provides remote annunciation
of transmitter low battery conditions plus Encoder status.
operating range is from 50 to 100 feet (15 to 30 meters) depending on
system is designed for intermittent data transmission of position
information. Transmitter battery life is directly proportional to the
amount of data transmissions generated. Do not use this RF system in
applications where the measuring system is being used in
The Encoder Transmitter is
powered by one Lithium coin cell (Cr123) battery.
The Transmitter can send position data to two different receiver types:.
Receiver is powered by a plug-in "wall bug" transformer. The Receiver connects directly to a
ProScale Readout (as shown in the
The receiver has a low battery
indicator for the paired Transmitter's battery status.
This configuration supports ONE transmitter and ONE or TWO receivers.
Universal Receiver is
powered by the USB port where it is connected. This receiver includes a low battery indicator for the
battery, a numerical input indicator to display which Transmitter a signal
originated from plus other diagnostic indicator lights.
This receiver will support up to EIGHT Encoder Transmitters.
Transmit Data up to 100
Eliminate long cable
Use with a remote Readout
or as one of eight inputs to a PC
