Multi-I/O, Multi-Purpose

The OleumTech® GP-AP81 is a secure, rugged, and reliable general purpose wireless transmitter designed for industrial process monitoring and control applications. It features two high resolution analog inputs (24-bit ADC) and two discrete programmable I/O (PIO) channels that can be configured as inputs or outputs in any combination.

Industrially Hardened

OleumTech wireless transmitters originated from the toughest outdoor oil and gas production locations throughout the world. They are designed to thrive in harsh, extreme weather conditions. Only the highest-grade materials go in to building our wireless instruments. The GP-AP81 is backed by a 2-year warranty.

Deploy Anywhere

The GP Wireless Analog/Discrete Transmitter can be powered using an external 9-30 Vdc source or optional SX1000-BP2 Battery Pack providing seamless flexibility. When powered by the Battery Pack, it can operate for up to 10 years before needing a battery replacement.

Scalable Solution, Easy to Use

The GP Wireless Sensor & I/O Network is comprised of a wireless gateway and wireless transmitters forming a star or point-to-multipoint network structure. Adding additional transmitters and managing I/O points are extremely simple with the OleumTech GP Network Configuration Software for PC is offered for free to its users.
