AirWay Wireless Signal Transceiver
AirWay is an electronic device that wirelessly transmits and receives up to 4 input/output control signals. Two or more AirWay units can be used together to provide up to 4 wireless signals between hoists, cranes, and fixed equipment.
Airway is ideally suited to implementing interlocked slowdown and stop limits for multi hoist or multi crane lifting.
Why install an AirWay?
Wiring signals between hoists can be difficult if there are no spare cores. Wiring signals between cranes is almost impossible. AirWay makes it easy.
- Provides up to four remote inputs for other devices.
- Four contact outputs, rated for 250V AC/32VDC, 4A.
- Long range (500m line of sight) between two units.
- Wide input power range (24-240V AC/DC).
- Wireless configuration via Bluetooth.
- Australian designed and manufactured.
- Australian manufacturer extended hours support available.
Dimensions of the AirWay and locations of mounting holes are shown in the following diagram:
|L(max)||Input pin voltage||32||250||V|
|V(fault)||Max voltage for output relays||250||VAC|
|I(fault)||Max current sink per output set point relay||4||A|
# Extended operation at maximum temperature will reduce device life.
Installing USB drivers for the Link-2 modem
When you have to get a control signal from one place to another (e.g. crane to crane OR crane to ground) and cabling the signal is expensive or impractical.
If you are using AirWay as a remote input for Liftlog or LiftlogXL then you only need 1 unit. Otherwise, you will need two units.
When installed in such a way as to create an uninterrupted path (ie line of sight) between the two units (either two AirWay units or an AirWay and a Liftlog™ or LiftlogXL), range is approximately 500m.
When one AirWay unit is in a metal enclosure, subtract 150m, and when both units are in metal enclosures, subtract 300m. When the transmission path is not line of sight, range is difficult to predict but is usually around 100-200m.
Yes. An output signal is provided to indicate that you have a good connection.
