AirWay is an electronic device that wirelessly transmits and receives up to 4 input/output control signals. It can be used to provide remote I/O for products such as Whiting Passport’s Liftlog™ or Liftlog XL data logger, where the desired signals cannot be cabled into the logger directly. Alternatively, two AirWay units can be used together to provide up to 4 virtual connections.
Advanced data loggers require one or more input signals from existing instrumentation or additional sensors. It is not always possible or practicable to physically connect these signals using traditional cabling.
|Mounting||2 x 8.5mm screws OR|
|4 x 5mm screws|
Dimensions of the AirWay and locations of mounting holes are shown in the following diagram:
|L(max)||Input pin voltage||32||250||V|
|V(fault)||Max voltage for output relays||250||VAC|
|I(fault)||Max current sink per output set point relay||4||A|
# Extended operation at maximum temperature will reduce device life.
When you have to get a control signal from one place to another (e.g. crane to crane OR crane to ground) and cabling the signal is expensive or impractical.
If you are using AirWay as a remote input for Liftlog or LiftlogXL then you only need 1 unit. Otherwise, you will need two units.
When installed in such a way as to create an uninterrupted path (ie line of sight) between the two units (either two AirWay units or an AirWay and a Liftlog™ or LiftlogXL), range is approximately 500m.
When one AirWay unit is in a metal enclosure, subtract 150m, and when both units are in metal enclosures, subtract 300m. When the transmission path is not line of sight, range is difficult to predict but is usually around 100-200m.
Yes. An output signal is provided to indicate that you have a good connection.
