Minneapolis, MN—July 15, 2008—
Banner Engineering Corp. announces the SureCross™ DX70 Wireless Developer’s Kit, consisting of a Gateway and one Node transceiver to enable on-site wireless testing. The ready to use, self-contained kit provides battery boxes with test buttons and indicator lights simulating inputs and outputs to determine an application’s specific range and response time requirements. Plus, the SureCross DX70 Wireless Developer’s Kit contains three white papers that cover basic radio, network and antenna theory. This educational information provides an overview of the technology behind SureCross, a rugged wireless solution delivering I/O across ranges up to three miles away for remote installations, as well as solving a wide variety of cumbersome or difficult-to-access applications.

The SureCross Network employs a Node transceiver to gather information, which is then concentrated at the Gateway system controller. The network’s bidirectional communication capabilities facilitate robust monitoring and control, while its Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) protocol and Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) technology ensure dependable, secure communications. With the new SureCross DX70 Wireless Developer’s Kit, users can test signal strength, range, I/O types and response times at various locations and conditions within their unique environments. The SureCross DX70 Wireless Developer’s Kit is available for only $295.
