WireLynx 400 Series Powerline Carrier Products

The 4-channel LX-400 system consists of one transmitter and one or more receivers.  The LX-401A transmitter has four inputs, compatible with dry-contact switches, relays, open-collector transistors or other suitable means of switching the inputs.  Several models of receivers are available and each receiver must be assigned to one of the four channels, although any number of receivers may be used on any channel.  Best for applications where only 1 to 4 different control channels are needed.

 

Why use WireLynx Powerline Carrier Products?

WireLynx Powerline Carrier Systems are superior for general purpose control applications. Below details some of the reasons why:

  • WireLynx is designed for permanent installation
  • Flexible in connecting to various electrical service types
  • Transmitters use a frequency-shift keying (FSK) technology for superior noise immunity and high reliability
  • Transmitters use high power electronics to insure the PLC signal is received by receivers located long distances from the transmitter.
  • Transmitters scan the inputs and send a complete packet of data every two seconds.  Continuous transmission allows only verified control commands to be implemented
  • Receivers built-in microcontroller uses a redundancy algorithm that insures only verified data packets are implemented.  Receivers also contain a fail safe time-out and default to a designated state if the transmitter signal is lost.
  • WireLynx products use high quality components and are assembled and tested to exacting standards in the USA.
  • The robust technology of WireLynx products has been used for over 30 years

The WireLynx 400 Series has been used in a wide variety of applications.
The most common are:

  • Outdoor Lighting Systems
  • Center Pivot Sprinklers
  • Irrigation Systems
  • Alarms
  • Energy Management
