ETC is excited to announce the arrival of our brand new wire replacement system! The Iris Wireless Bridge provides the ability to use Cyclops plunger arrival sensors in industrial applications where wire is not an economically viable or easily attainable option. Designed to replace traditional wire and trenching with plug and play equipment, Iris is a cost-effective, easy to use system that safely enables up to 2 switches per node to be powered and relayed back to a panel-mounted gateway up to ½ mile away. Installation is quick and easy; Simply terminate Cyclops to the Iris Wireless Bridge Plunger Sensor Node and connect the outputs on the Gateway to any standard control system. To get more out of your Iris Wireless Bridge at a single well site, connect an additional switch to the second discrete input to wirelessly monitor pressures or tanks. For use in multi-well applications, connect up to two Cyclops sensors per Node, or use the Modbus interface with additional nodes to expand the number of linked devices.
Looking to connect additional devices, or need a wireless solution for another switch or sensor? The Iris Wireless Bridge comes with a flexible interface to enable a variety of system configurations and applications. The current state of up to 2 switches and a Modbus device connected to each node can be read from the gateway using the integrated Modbus Slave interface, while the Iris Gateway can connect to up to 240 nodes. Additional nodes are available with a range of sensor interfaces including Analog, HART, Modbus, RTDs and Turbine Meters. Contact ETC today for more information!
Iris Plunger Sensor Node
The Iris Plunger Sensor Node is easy to configure, allowing users to wirelessly monitor up to two digital sensors (like the Cyclops plunger arrival sensor) with a single unit. The Plunger Sensor Node also includes a RS-485 Modbus port for remote communication.
