• Industrial wireless router board for integration into OEM enclosures
  • Dual boot support for both ISA100.11a and WirelessHART
  • Includes complete API for easy integration
  • Includes built in network Monitoring/Control software

The Nivis VersaRouter 800 (VR800) is an industrial wireless router board designed specifically for customers that are ready to integrate with their own enclosure and components to deliver a certifiable wireless solution. The VR800 is architected to support Nivis ISA100.11a or WirelessHART (VR810 model) software running on the same platform. From temperature sensors to gas monitors, the VR800 helps customers unlock valuable information about the status of their industrial network at a lower overall cost of ownership than non-standards based or legacy wired solutions.

The VR800 board includes the software and integration capabilities to make it the best choice for any company planning to deploy and manage standards based, wireless mesh networks. With its ATEX Zone 2 and C1D2 nonincendive board design, the VR800 can be integrated into your product solution. The included software provides customers with the network management tools required for fast and comprehensive management of industrial wireless sensors. The router board enables integration and connectivity with your value added components.

In addition to the viewing of device data such as Device type, EUI-64 ID, Device Tag, the included Monitoring Control System (MCS) provides administrators with up to date monitoring and control of their sensors with publish messages rates of 10 per second and join times as fast as 20 seconds per device. From a full topological view to in-depth network health information about sensor devices, the VR800 delivers the information and integration capabilities that organization’s require.

The VR800 with the MCS allows the administrator to configure alerts, set advanced parameters, update devices and router firmware, run and view command logs, review GDPU path reliability and latency. Administrators can even add their own custom sensor icons! Additionally, the integration capabilities such as the User Interface Connector and LED Connector enable customers to quickly add the VR800 into their own industrial wireless gateway.
