Wireless Sensor System
The new NEWPORT® zSeries DIN Rail wireless monitoring and control device is compatible with a large and growing number of Newport wireless sensors:
UWTC "Universal Wireless Thermocouple", Type J, K, T, E, R, S, B, N, and C.
UWRTD "Universal Wireless RTD".
UWIR "Universal Wireless Infrared Sensor".
UWXL-TC and UWXL-RTD "Long Range Transmitters".

The zSeries DIN Rail Monitor & Controller can monitor up to eight (8) wireless sensors. The compact instrument connects directly to an Ethernet network and the Internet and features Newport’s award- winning embedded Web Server. It is easily configured and monitored with a Web browser over the Ethernet network or the Internet. Alternatively, the wiDR monitor-controller can instead be connected to the USB port of a single computer with a “USB Ethernet Adapter” that are inexpensive and widely available.

Monitor and Alarm
The wiDR monitor-controller comes standard with a choice of either two Form C relays, or two SSR’s (solid state relays) that can be used for control functions or alarms. The wiDR can monitor alarm conditions for any or all of the wireless sensors. For example, the wiDR can be set up to trip an alarm if any one of the sensors indicated it was above or below a pre-set alarm point.

Monitor & Control Locally and Over the Internet
The new Newport zSeries wireless monitoring and control system provides local monitoring and control, along with remote Web-based monitoring of temperature from thermocouples, RTD’s, and semiconductor sensors.

The wireless sensors can transmit up to 1000 meters (3280’) -- without obstructions or interference, to a zSeries monitor-controller connected directly to an Ethernet network and the Internet.

The wireless system complies with IEEE 802.15.4 operating at 2.4 GHz.The Newport zSeries system let’s you monitor and record temperature, relative humidity, and barometric pressure over an Ethernet network or the Internet without any special software--just your Web Browser.

Wireless Sensors
Newport offers a wide and growing selection of wireless sensors for a variety of applications. Depending on application, the wireless sensors run on either batteries or AC power. The battery version comes with two alkaline "AA" batteries or "C" cell batteries that can last for years. The AC version comes with a universal AC Adaptor that operates on any voltage worldwide from 100 to 240 Vac, and includes a single lithium back-up battery. Wireless sensors are available with external probes appropriate for an almost unlimited variety of industrial and commercial applications.

Ethernet
The wiDR is an independent node on the network sending and receiving data in standard TCP/IP packets. It is easily configured from a Web Browser and can be password protected. From within an Ethernet LAN or over the Internet, the user simply types the IP address (such as 192.168.1.200) or an easy to remember name (such as "Oven 5" or "Chicago TestRoom") and the zSeries monitor serves a Web Page with the current readings.

Alarm and Email
The wiDR monitor-controller can trigger an alarm if variables go above or below a set point that you determine. Your alarm can be sent by email to a single user or to a group distribution list, including text messages to cell phones and PDA’s. The Newport "Mail Notifier" software is a free and easy program for this application.The zSeries operate on any AC voltage worldwide from 100 to 240 Vac and 50 to 60 Hz.The monitor-controller connects directly to an Ethernet Network or the Internet. Unlike an RS232 or USB device, it does not require a host computer.

Embedded Webserver
The Newport zSeries wireless sensor system is easy to install, simple to operate, and features Newport’s award-winning iServer technology with an Embedded Web Server that requires no special software.
Charts and Graphs
The Newport wiDR monitor serves Active Web Pages to display real time readings and charts of temperature. You can also log data in standard data formats for use in a spreadsheet or data acquisition program such as Excel or Visual Basic.

Newport offers a free and easy to use program for logging data to Excel. The virtual chart viewed on the web page is a JAVA™ Applet that records a chart over the LAN or Internet in real time. With the Newport zSeries system there is no need to invest time and money learning a proprietary software program to log or chart the data.

Chart scales are fully adjustable on the fly. For example, the chart can display one minute, one hour, one day, one week, one month or one year. Temperature can be charted across the full span (-40 to 125°C) or within any narrow range such as (20 to 30°C). Newport offers an OPC Server software that makes it easy to integrate the zSeries wireless sensor system with many popular Data Acquisition and Automation programs offered by Omega, Wonderware, iConics, Intellution, Rockwell Automation, and National Instruments, among others.
