        • Central to the collection and distribution of process data from Accutech field units are the Accutech base radios. These radios provide ultra-efficient communication to a maximum of 100 field units in a star network and can be overlapped with up to 256 other networks in the same area. Data is transferred to the SCADA network or directly to a host via serial Modbus. Both process data from the field units and control commands to the field units are handled by the base radios. Options are available for integrated long-haul data radios within the base unit, allowing for extended reach between your wireless sensor network and your operations network.

          Base radio BR10
          Description
           
                   
               
          The Accutech BR10 is the explosion proof version of our base radio, offering easy installation in Class I, Div 1 / Zone 1 hazardous environments. The unit automatically communicates with all deployed field units attached to it in a local area star network and makes the field data available to an existing SCADA network or host system through serial Modbus. Each base radio can accommodated up to 100 field units in a single network with data rates as often as 1sec on all measured points. Up to 256 wireless sensor networks can operate in the same area yielding unlimited scalability.
          The BR10 comes with a PC-based configuration and diagnostics tool that minimises installation and maintenance efforts.

          Applications
           
                   
               
          Used in any application where process variable measurement is hard to reach, costly to wire or hard to install. Accutech base radios can connect with our complete range of devices including pressure, temperature, flow, digital I/O, analog inputs, level, and more.

          Any industry that operates processes at a distance and requires autonomous robust equipment that may require hazardous zone certification is a candidate for Accutech. Examples include oil and gas applications in upstream wellhead automation or pipeline monitoring, water and wastewater process monitoring and open mining operations. A wide range of other industries make use of Accutech base radios and field devices in applications that require long lasting autonomous process monitoring at a distance.
