SignalFire Multi Input/Output Module Offers Wireless Local Control of Assets Without Intervention of
SignalFire has expanded the capabilities of its Multi Input/Output (MIO) Module to connect directly (Modbus) with programmable logic controllers (PLCs) or be configured to perform autonomous local control where an input can trigger

Signal Fire’s Remote Sensing System, sending data from attached sensors to a SignalFire Gateway that can report inputs and write outputs via its wireless network. (see graphic 1)
Now, when operating in non-wireless Modbus mode, the SignalFire Multi I/O Module can be connected directly to a user’s controller via Modbus RS-485 or operate independently without any outside device controlling it. (see graphic 2) For example, when connected to analog level sensors, the MIO Module can locally create a command to shut off the pump if configured levels get too high. Additionally, the module can be connected wirelessly (or wired) to a monitoring device (PLC) to monitor status.
With 8 analog and 6 digital inputs (the DI’s can totalize), the Multi I/O Module can be connected to a variety of devices such as pressure, flow, or level sensors, motor controllers or radar sensors. Two relay outputs are offered for control. Units can be daisy chained for added flexibility. Ultra-
With its sophisticated options and ability to control a wide variety of assets, the MIO Module is ideal for a variety of applications including monitoring and controlling heater treaters, separators, plunger lift, tubing and casing pressures and tank levels.
