Telemecanique Sensors has expanded its offer of wireless products with the XCMW
range of limit switches based on an automatic radio wave generator system.
This range includes transmitters and receivers that communicate via 2.4 GHz radio
There is no need to use batteries, as the radio pulse is emitted while the actuator
Operation is therefore one-way towards the receiver.
The XCMW offer can be used to determine the position of an item or part of a
machine remotely, without a wired connection. The transmitter is equipped with a
“dynamo” generator that converts the mechanical energy produced by the actuator
movement to electrical energy.
A radio-encoded message (2.4 GHz ZigBee protocol) is then sent, by a single pulse,
to one or more receivers located several dozen meters away.
The system is self-powered, which means no batteries are needed.
Each transmitter has a unique identification code, which enables optimal
management of each one. To incorporate this code, a simple teach sequence must
be performed on the receiver using the two buttons on the front face.
Thanks to this technology, the industrial applications field has diversified and now meets
the requirements of machine manufacturers in terms of flexibility and modularity. It is the
ideal product for confirming the position of a part remotely after a manual operation by
an operator (1).
XCMW wireless limit switches are therefore particularly suitable (2) for:
Multi-sensor radio transmitter for “less-wire” solution
This remote connection system, compatible with any sensor or limit switch, is used to reduce costs by using less wiring for all kinds of application.
