VersaNode_220_PT_1080
HIGHLIGHTS
 
  • Dual boot support for both ISA100.11a and WirelessHART
  • Full API for easy integration
  • AES-128 bit security
 

The Nivis VersaNode 220 is a versatile WirelessHART radio in a small footprint. The VN220 allows customers to minimize the cost of design, field deployment, and testing. The VN220, in conjunction with a standards based router such as the VersaRouter 910, enables users to wirelessly monitor industrial devices.

Designed for ATEX Zone 2 and C1D2 nonincendive environments, the VN220 offers a full API for easy integration into your organization’s devices. From temperature sensors to gas monitors, the VN220 helps organizations unlock vital information about their operating environment. Leveraging AES-128 bit security, the VN220 is a low power, 10dBm, 2.4 GHz radio frequency transceiver with a 32-bit ARM7 core based MCU. The VN220 is also FCC, IC, R&TTE and VCCI approved.
