The Wizard provides a user-friendly, intuitive, and technically complete experience for first time configuration of ConnexLink radios. With the assistance of the ConnexLink Setup Wizard, users with no prior experience can purchase ConnexLink radios and easily cut the cables between serial devices within minutes. The ConnexLink Setup Wizard delivers a direct path to wireless connectivity-- as simple as plug, click, and connect.

The Wizard requires only one parameter to change, making the process very user-friendly for first time users or anyone looking to easily configure ConnexLink radios. The Wizard pairs ConnexLink radios for use in critical serial cable replacement applications including weigh stations, irrigation systems, and digital signage (such as scoreboards and billboards).

Critical solutions in industrial and commercial environments still rely on serial cables to receive and send data. However, serial cables present multiple challenges such as:

    • Difficult to install
    • Cost prohibitive
    • Frustrating to replace/update
    • Limited range

The Laird ConnexLink stand-alone radio modules are set up in minutes to replace serial cables with a wireless connection, allowing simple installation and inexpensive long-range communication. The flexibility and economical price of ConnexLink radios allow users to quickly upgrade wired applications to cordless operation in industrial and commercial environments.

ConnexLink implements a proprietary communication protocol to provide secure local data transmissions. Because it uses FHSS technology, the data remains reliable over distances of up to 20 miles (32 km) line-of-sight (900 MHz version). Use of license-free frequency bands ensures that units are ready to use with no further certification requirements. Every unit is backed by a full one-year warranty.
