Description:

The Z-2400-A2 series of units support the communication of analogue and digital signals via a wireless link. The series consists of three separate wireless nodes for: Input, Output and Repeating, and does not require a computer to monitor the wireless network. Built on the ZigBee® protocol, this allows for multiple Z-2400-A2 wireless links to operate side by side at the same time.

The Output node is the base and acts as the master for the entire link. The Input node acts as a wireless remote station and seeks for the Output Base to transmit the input signals to. The Repeater node is the bridge between the Input and Output wireless nodes, and is only used when the distance between them is too large to communicate directly.

Note: The Z-2400-A2 Series are used for Stand-alone wireless data links. For MicroScan SCADA wireless data links, the Z-2400 Series are used.

Model Description
Z-2400-A2IO The Z-2400-A2IO is the kit set of the Input (Z-2400-A2I) and Output (Z-2400-A2O) wireless nodes, supplied as a complete set paired to each other with a unique Mesh ID.
Z-2400-A2I The Z-2400-A2I is a 2 channel analogue input wireless node, when switched on it looks for the output node to sends it’s input values to via the wireless link.

The inputs are individually programmable as follows:

  • RTD: Pt100/Pt1000, -200~800°C.
  • Thermocouple: B, E, K, J, N, R, S, T, with CJC.
  • mA: 0~20mA (4~20mA).
  • mV: -25~25mV to -200~1000mV.
  • V: 0~1V to 0~18V.
  • Pulse/Digital Max speed 1Hz.
It also comes equipped with 4 digital inputs, 2 digital outputs, and 2 relay outputs.
Z-2400-A2O The Z-2400-A2O is a 2 channel analogue output wireless node. It acts as the base and controls it’s entire ZigBee wireless network. The analogue output is 4~20mA only at 24Vdc. Like the input node, it comes equipped with the matching 4 digital inputs and 4 digital/relay outputs.
Z-2400-A2R The Z-2400-A2R is quite simply a ZigBee wireless repeater. It is used to boost the signal strength between the other two nodes, input and output, to extend the range. The maximum number of repeater nodes per wireless mesh network is 15.
