LP I/O Range

Satel bunch

The new SATEL-LP product family offers an easy solution for simple I/O and serial communications. With software-free radio setup, SATEL-LP is a cost-effective wireless solution where it is too costly or impossible to run a cable. All SATEL-LP modules are DIN rail mountable. The over the air interface has a 128-bit AES encryption and authentication.

The system consists of data transfer and expansion modules. The data transceiver modules are used for serial data transfer and expansion modules for I/O signals. I/O signals can also be connected directly to Modbus protocol devices with transceiver modules through RS-232 and RS-485 interfaces.

With SATEL-LP system it is easy and simple to create point-to-point, point-to-multipoint or large mesh networks up to 250 nodes. The comissioning can be done without any programming via the thumb wheel – a wireless connection is established automatically. Through AES encryption, frequency hopping spread spectrum, and coexistence management the system reliability is extremely high and data transfer is secured 24/7.


Wireless communication is based on Trusted Wireless 2.0 technology. The requirement for a high-quality interference-free data transmission is fulfilled by using, for example, the frequency hopping method (FHSS) and 128-bit data encryption (AES). The SATEL-LP wireless system uses the license-free 2.4 GHz ISM band.

In addition to an RS-232 and RS-485 2-wire interface, the SATEL-LP24 wireless module supports the option of directly connecting up to 32 I/O extension modules in the station structure via the DIN rail connector. Addressing of the wireless module and I/O mapping of the extension modules is carried out quickly and easily by means of the thumbwheel on the front. You can use the yellow thumbwheel on the wireless module in order to set the RAD ID, and the white thumbwheel on the extension modules to set the I/O-MAP address. Programming knowledge is not required. You can easily start up the wireless network without the need for software.

The SATEL-LP-CONF configuration and diagnostics software for special functions and diagnostics options in the wireless module is available free of charge.
