Phoenix Contact loves to test its own products

Last year we set a goal of self-reflection and a task to get to know our products more. Sure, reading a manual can really give insight into how it works and what it does, but they do not explain the little details of a product that might be interesting as a feature, or as a little undocumented step.

One product I chose to work on was the Radioline– can we setup a point to point network that is a little more extreme then just a flat area with two points? We have done tests before for customers, but never 400m up and broadcasting into the beautiful city of Shrewsbury.

So, I recruited two of my colleagues Andy Neat and Matt Lee. The Dynamic duo would travel to Shrewsbury in search of a place to setup and broadcast from their side. While Darren Hack and I would climb the Wrekin to setup the Radioline master. Take a look at the results in the video below.

Radioline is a radio transceiver solution allowing point to point, star and mesh networks to be built. This then can broadcast the following I/O types

  • Digital I/O
  • Analog I/O (4-20ma .. 0-10ma)
  • PT100
  • RS485/RS232/RS422
