  • Choose from three different gateway options, each with unique connectivity benefits
  • 2.4 GHz, IEEE 802.15.4 radio to communicate with WSN measurement nodes
  • Support for 8 end nodes or up to 36 nodes in a mesh topology
  • Industrial ratings: -40 to 70 °C operating temperature, 50 g shock, 5 g vibration

NI wireless sensor network (WSN) gateways manage the wireless network and aggregate data from distributed NI WSN measurement nodes. Each gateway features a 2.4 GHz, IEEE 802.15.4 radio to communicate with up to eight end nodes (in a star topology) or up to 36 WSN measurement nodes (in a mesh topology).

Each gateway offers different connectivity options. With the NI WSN-9791 Ethernet gateway, you can create simple PC or real-time-based WSN systems. With the NI 9792, you can create a headless, embedded monitoring system that operates independently of a host machine. And with the NI 9795, you can easily add WSN wireless I/O to existing NI CompactRIO monitoring and control systems.
