The OTC Sensor Network is designed for industrial automation applications to wirelessly monitor and control mission-critical processes around the clock, ensuring data is delivered more consistently and reliably. It helps eliminate trenching, permitting and reduces material, labor, and engineering costs, empowering operators to deploy data infrastructures much more quickly and efficiently than with a traditional hardwired system.
It is also known for its last-mile telemetry solution enabling operators to collect process data in hazardous locations and areas without access to a power grid. Its low-powered Wireless Gateways and I/O Modules along with self-contained Wireless Transmitters provide robust performance in harsh and hazardous environments.
The OTC Sensor Network is designed around point-to-multipoint and peer-to-peer network topologies. Wireless Gateways in the network are designed for collecting and mapping I/O points in the system as well as communicating with third-party master or slave devices over Serial or Ethernet connection. Each Wireless Gateway can support up to 63 Wireless Transmitters or Wireless I/O Modules utilizing point-to-multipoint or “star” topology. A network can have multiple Gateways for sharing data and mapping I/O point with each other using peer-to-peer or “distributed star” topology.
