4 FreeWave I/O for Rockwell: Technology Overview

5 1/12/2014© 2011 FreeWave Technologies, Inc. 5 What is Wireless I/O? Replaces wires with wireless radio frequency technology to measure sensor outputs and control process elements using digital and analog signals FreeWave has the industrys best radios for frequency-hopping spread spectrum radios for unlicensed frequencies and reliable licensed frequencies with distances over 60 miles FreeWave I/O for Rockwell Technology Overview

6 1/12/2014© 2011 FreeWave Technologies, Inc. 6 What are the benefits of Wireless I/O? Wireless I/O saves time and money in engineering, material, installation, commissioning, logistics, maintenance, diagnostics, permitting and equipment lifetime. Wireless I/O is available for use with free or licensed radio frequencies and implies protection by the FCC Wireless I/O provides security, reliability and ease of use to automated measurement and control systems FreeWave I/O for Rockwell Technology Overview

7 1/12/2014© 2011 FreeWave Technologies, Inc. 7 What do we measure? Sensor output for pressure, level, flow, temperature, chemicals, etc. Raw inputs for emergency stop, battery voltage, temperature, etc. What do we control? Relays, valves, latches, pumps, alarms, actuators, etc. FreeWave I/O for Rockwell Technology Overview
