  • Page 9: Installation

    IGWiPS200-1 INSTALLATION This section provides installation procedures for a WiPS 200 Series wireless network. A wireless network contains a master transceiver and up to eight remote (i.e. slave) transceivers. I/O Expansion modules provide the network with additional analog, digital, and pulse I/O capacity. Transceivers and I/O modules are mounted on user-supplied DIN rail by the installer.

    IGWiPS200-1 Control Room At the control room, there is one master transceiver and complementing I/O: one analog output module, and one digital output module. The total current requirement is 287 mA [75 mA +100 mA + 32 mA + (4 x 20 mA)]. Table 2 WiPS Module Bus Current Requirements Module Bus Current Requirement...
  • Page 14: Analog Output And Digital Output Fault Response Selections

    IGWiPS200-1 A. Analog Output and Digital Output Fault Response Selections Three I/O modules (4-Channel Analog Output Module, 8-Channel Digital Output Module, and Combination Input/Output Module) contain DIP switches that may be set by the user to determine the module’s response to the connected transceiver’s loss of an RF Link or to the loss of an input signal.
  • Page 15: Setting Module Switches

    IGWiPS200-1 Pulse Output Module (See Figure 18 on page 26) There are two DIP switches for each channel: switches 1 and 2 for channel 1, switches 3 and 4 for channel 2. Switches 1 (CH1) and 3 (CH2) – Counter or Frequency Mode; Default setting is Counter When Counter mode is selected, the module will output a specific number of pulses as determined by the PLC value written to it by the Pulse Input Module.
  • Page 16: Mounting The Din Rail

    IGWiPS200-1 MOUNTING THE DIN RAIL At each installation site, mount the DIN rail and DIN rail mount modules (e.g. transceiver, I/O modules, power supply) in a NEMA enclosure appropriate for the environment and hazardous area classification. Refer to Figure 3 for transceiver and I/O module dimensions.
  • Page 17: Figure 4 Module Features

    IGWiPS200-1 Each module has a moveable, spring-loaded mounting lip to assist in mounting a module, sliding a module along the DIN rail, and removing a module from the DIN rail. This lip has a slotted tab so the blade of a small screwdriver can be inserted and the lip levered away from the rail.
  • Page 18: Mounting The 1/4-Wave Whip Antenna

    IGWiPS200-1 MOUNTING THE 1/4-WAVE WHIP ANTENNA Mount the 3-1/6" (80.4 mm) high, omnidirectional whip antenna , shown at right, within 5' (1.5m) of the transceiver to allow the supplied 6' (2m) cable to easily reach between the antenna and transceiver. A mounting bracket and three screws are supplied.
  • Page 19: Figure 5 Removing A Connector Block

    IGWiPS200-1 Electrical Connections – Power and I/O connections are completed through screw actuated compression terminals. Connector blocks can be removed from a module for wiring, as shown in the two figures below. Insert a small straight-slot screwdriver between a connector block and the faceplate and use a gentle prying motion to separate the connector block from the module.
