Bindicator® Adds InvisiLink™ Wireless Radio to Offering

March 13, 2014

Bindicator Invisilink Wireless RadioBindicator® is pleased to announce the addition of the InvisiLink™ Wireless Radio to the product offering. Having a wireless solution allows users to eliminate hard wiring and conduit between units, which provides significant cost savings during installation and maintenance of equipment.

The InvisiLink wireless radios communicate via RS-485 or RS-422, making them compatible with Bindicator Yo-Yo™ continuous level sensor, 3D Level Scanner™ and ORB™ remote inventory management systems.  Additional compatibility with 4-20mA analog devices can be achieved when used in conjunction with the Bindicator 4-20mA converter. This allows for the consolidation of multiple analog signals from level sensors across a bank of vessels into one digital signal that can be brought back to the plant wirelessly. This eliminates the need for a large amount of wiring.

InvisiLink wireless radios have a standard transmission distance of 3,000 ft (914 m) and an extended range antenna option is available for longer distances. Environmental conditions should be considered for optimal transmission. Other features include a NEMA 4 enclosure and LED indicator lights that designate communication and strength of signal.
