The ZB-TC module is a ZigBee (WiFi) transceiver that can be used (in a pair) to communicate data from a probe to its reading unit.

Different versions are available, depending on the used components and the scope of the device. For example, a ZB-TC allows the communication with a Mercury GMP probe + PS-ZB accessory or in general with a probe, installing a module at each end of the wireless bridge.

Optionally, it is possible to mount two modules in a single box (ZB-TC II), typically with trolley-mounted double probe devices (as an alternative to using a single module for each probe).

The ZB-TC module is composed of the main parts here listed:

  • XBee Interface: wireless communication circuit where the XBee module is installed
  • Host PC Interface: interface with the device (reading unit/probe) fitted for RS232 and USB
  • Peripheral Interface: interface with the device (reading unit/probe) alternative to the previous one, fitted for RS485, RS 422 and RS232
