The wireless actuator is used to switch selected electrical consumers. A variety of functions can be switched via four outputs. The sWave.NET® wireless system and the Sensor Bridge connect the wireless actuator simply and easily to the system. The Sensor Bridge serves as a central database for management of the output status. As a standard feature it provides a REST-API via http(s) to control the outputs and to request new status updates.
With the wireless actuator, consumers such as indicator lamps can be switched in typical Andon applications. Due to the extremely low power consumption of the actuators, the devices are also used in mobile AGV in order to extend the running times of these vehicles. For example, an AGV can be woken by a wireless actuator from its Deep Sleep mode. At regular intervals (usually 1 minute) the device is sent the status information needed to activate an AGV via the wireless system.
