The DX99 FlexPower nodes are available in metal housing for gas and dust atmospheres. The nodes interface with many  sensors and other monitoring and control devices and are available with a wide range of I/O options. The remote nodes gather data and/or transmit control commands between the sensors or other devices and a central Gateway. Up to 56 nodes can be connected to one Gateway. The Gateway maps inputs from the remote nodes and interfaces with a PLC or HMI via RS-485 modbus or Ethernet/IP.
