MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – The new Radioline® wireless platform from Phoenix Contact offers wire replacement for simple I/O and serial communication. With software-free radio setup, Radioline offers a cost-effective wireless solution where it is too costly or not possible to run a wire.

More advanced configurations, such as high-speed serial communication, network topologies up to 250 nodes, nonintrusive diagnostics and 128-bit AES encryption, can be accessed via the free programming software. Radioline is available in two variants, 2.4 GHz and 900 MHz, allowing for applications to span distances from a couple hundred feet to multiple miles.
