Transmit signals over a longer distance or around obstructions to get the best from your smart sensor system
A cost-effective way to improve wireless sensor signal coverage
Because of the ways radio waves behave, there are several reasons why the signal coverage in a room or floor of a building might be less than ideal. For example, radio waves can travel through some materials but not others, with metal and concrete – often found in fire-safety walls, lift shafts and stairwells – being the worst.
Our wireless smart repeaters are a cost-effective way to overcome issues like this. They receive the signals transmitted by sensors and send them back out, allowing you to transmit data over a larger distance or work around obstructions.
- Increase the range of communication between two EnOcean devices, such as a sensor and receiver
- Work around obstructions or create more direct angles between sensors and receivers, improving signal strength
- Choose which sensors to repeat, reducing interference and ensuring clear radio signals
How our smart repeaters work
Our smart repeater receives messages from selected EnOcean sensors and then re-transmits them wirelessly. Depending on the configuration and the building, repeaters can extend the sensors’ range from 30m up to 90m.
One issue with most repeaters is that they re-transmit every message they receive, which can cause massive interference and signal failure. Our smart repeater lets you be selective and choose which sensors are repeated, meaning the signals received are far clearer.
- Extend wireless range of sensors up to 90m, depending on the configuration of a building
- Select which sensors to repeat to minimise unnecessary data being transmitted and maximise available bandwidth
- Powered via USB
