The HoistNet GateWay is a device for receiving up to two load signals from other HoistNet devices and outputting the value in either kilograms or tonnes via two fully isolated sinking or sourcing 4-20mA channels and/or a programmable RS485 serial interface.
- Receives signals wirelessly from up to 2 different HoistNet devices up to 200m away.
- 4-20mA outputs are fully isolated and can be wired up as either sinking or sourcing signals.
- Programmable RS485 interface for connecting to any PLCs, 3rd party displays.
- Simple to configure wirelessly.
- Wide input voltage range.
- Australian designed and manufactured.
- Australian manufacturer extended hours support available.
The HoistNet Gateway is designed to be installed on a 30mm DIN rail. Dimensions of the unit are provided in the following diagram.

When you want get the load from a HoistNet device into a non-HoistNet device (e.g. a PLC).
You only need to supply power to the device. It get's the load signals wirelessly via HoistNet.
A HoistNet Gateway can accept two HoistNet inputs.
The HoistNet Gateway can output the load signals as either 4-20mA or RS485 signals.
You can configure the serial format of the RS485 string and the baud rate when you configure the HoistNet Gateway.
Yes - this is configured at commissioning.
They can be either - you configure these when you set up the HoistNet Gateway.
You will need a device to measure the load (e.g. load cell) and a HoistNet device that connects to this load source.
It depends on the conditions. In a metal shed, with lots of obstacles, 200m is usually achievable. Outside, the range is much greater.
It depends on what is causing the interference. HoistNet uses long range Bluetooth to communicate between devices.
