There are some good and bad reasons for using wireless control communications. Simply substituting wireless to save on wiring costs is generally a bad idea, since wired communications are still the time-tested standard for ‘mission critical’ control applications. That said, there are some very useful applications for wireless such as monitoring and control of distant wells and pumping stations, structures located on the
other sides of highways and other areas that are generally impractical for wired network cabling.
Titan Wireless Network Bridging KitThe Titan Wireless Network Bridging Kit is sold as a 'plug and run' solution for adding one or more controllers via a wireless link. The kit includes two fully preconfigured pairs of outdoor Wireless Bridge/Access Point devices along with cables and connectors. Wireless control is only available for systems using Titan 2 controllers since it is the Ethernet ports on these controllers that are used to facilitate wireless communications.
The kit is ready for immediate use 'out-of-the box'. It is configured for exclusive use on Titan system networks and is not intended for general wireless Ethernet use. The kit includes a complete backup set of WAP (Wireless Access Point) devices that can be used as quick replacements should a problem occur. This is intended to maximize 'up-time' and minimize any complex troubleshooting issues in the field.
