DeviceNet Wireless Units WD30
Wireless DeviceNet Units Connects Slaves without Wires
- Up to 3,200 I/O points can be communicated through a Master Unit.
- Uses spread spectrum technology for superior noise resistance in manufacturing environments.
- Compact construction for easy installation.
- Long-range communications have been achieved with a relay function (3 repeaters max.).
- Message communications are supported.
General Specifications :
|DeviceNet communications power supply voltage||11 to 25 VDC (Supplied from the DeviceNet network power supply.)|
|Current consumption (See note.)||350 mA max. (at startup), 120 mA average|
|Ambient temperature||Operating: -10° to 50°C
Storage: -20° to 65°C
|Ambient humidity||Operating: 25% to 85% (with no condensation)|
|Weight||Approx. 200 g|

|Communication method||Simplex (half duplex)|
|Frequency band||2.4 GHz (2401 MHz to 2480.2 MHz)|
|Number of channels||67 channels (based on frequency division)|
|Antenna power||10 mW|
|Data transfer speed between wireless units||100 kbps|
|Transmission distance (See note 1.)||Indoors: 60 m (approx. 50 m with magnetic base antennas)
Outdoors: 300 m (unobstructed)
|Relay stations||3 repeaters max.|

1. The actual transmission distance depends on many factors in the installation environment.
2. The wireless system is not suitable for applications requiring real-time control.
DeviceNet Interface Specifications (Summary)
|Communications functions (See note.)||Master/Slave connections||Remote I/O functions and Explicit message communications functions|
|Self-diagnostic functions||Unit||WDT error, hardware errors (such as memory and CAN errors), and setting errors|
|DeviceNet communications||Duplicate node address errors, Bus OFF detection, and connection timeout|
|Device profiles||Communication control unit||Refer to Appendix A of the WD30 DeviceNet Wireless Units Operation Manual for various DeviceNet IDs (vendor, device type = communication adapter, product code, product revision, product name, serial number, status, and I/O unit IDs.)|
Note: FINS message communications are not supported. Explicit messages must be handled in the ladder program.
|Name||Number of I/O points (words used)|
|DeviceNet Wireless Master||1,600 inputs max. (100 words)
1,600 outputs max. (100 words)
|DeviceNet Wireless Slave||512 inputs max. (32 words)
512 outputs max. (32 words)
Note: Relay Stations can be used to create up to 3 levels and DeviceNet Slaves can be connected in each level.
Terminators are required when Slaves are connected to a Relay Station or Slave Station.
