Reach EDGE installation communicates with sensors and actuators for executing the intended actions. The EDGE system can have two modes of operation; one with EDGE processing capability and independent and the other with only centralized or very limited local processing capability. The selection of the mode depends on the application.
The built-in Rule Engine enables the REACH to carry out very complex operations and business processes. The processing of rules can be spread across multiple modules. The complex rules are processed n a local or centralized processing system like a PC.
Reach EDGE system also facilitates multiple means of local and WAN data communication. It can support redundant communication using multiple modes and has a fall back facility.
There is no limit to the number of sensors and actuators that can be connected. The system supports industry-standard sensors like Digital, Pulse, Analog, and Serial signals. It can also provide Voltage ON/OFF, PWM, Serial, Analog outputs. Any non-standard sensor or actuator can be integrated through custom development.
