The Nivis VersaRouter 900P (VR900P) is an all-in-one, industrial wireless router designed specifically for customers that are ready to deliver market leading wireless solutions with PROFINET support. The VR900P is architected for both ISA100.11a and WirelessHART and delivers the core benefits of PROFINET with its flexibility, efficiency and performance. From temperature sensors to gas monitors, the VR900P helps customers unlock and route valuable sensor data to PROFINET IO controllers in their DCS.

The VR900P with PROFINET exposes ISA100.11a node data and provides poll data via an external client. PROFINET is the open Industrial Ethernet standard of PROFIBUS and is a leading process automation protocol for data communications in factory, process and safety application environments. It is ideal for applications that require high-speed data throughput. With its rugged enclosure and intrinsically safe hardware design, the VR900P can be mounted directly in your process environment.

The VR900P MCS management software allows administrators to configure/view slot numbers, object IDs and method IDs within the Configuration settings of the console to match the GSDML in the PROFINET controller. The Nivis gateway software serves as the interface to the PROFINET Protocol Translator and the PROFINET stack within the system, which communicates with the PROFINET IO controller.
