When longer distances need to be bridged, the optional iQunet wireless Actuator (extender) can be used. The Actuator has a small footprint and can easily be attached to the wall with the related clips. The Actuator can connect virtually to an unlimited number of sensors and is powered via a standard micro USB connection to a USB charger (included). This way, the wireless range of iQunet sensors is more than doubled. The Actuator has also 2 standard coin cells on board acting as an UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) to ensure data capturing even under short main power break downs.
Compared to the Repeater the Actuator has also a 24V switching output. If an alarm broadcast from a surrounding sensor is picked up, the iQunet Actuator can e.g. drive immediately – without computing delay – a machine PLC to switch off the machine or flash a warning light.
Used in: monitoring with iQunet wireless sensors in larger plants and/or a direct switching output is required (e.g. to drive a warning light) without delay.
