CEN-HPRFGW

CEN-HPRFGW

Extended Range RF Wireless Gateway
A 2-way RF wireless gateway, supporting up to 16 "Extend Range" RF touchpanels and remotes. Compatible with TPS-6X, UFO-4ER, and UFO-WPR-3ER. Provides fast, reliable performance and easy setup.

The CEN-HPRFGW gateway is a 2-way RF transceiver that enables wireless communication and management for up to 16 Crestron® "Extended Range" wireless touchpanels and remotes. It is compatible with the Isys™ TPS-6X Wireless Touchpanel, UFO-4ER Handheld Wireless Touchpanel, and UFO-WPR-3ER Waterproof Wireless Remote.

Extended Range 2.4 GHz RF Technology
Crestron Extended Range wireless technology (formerly called "High Powered RF") affords robust bidirectional wireless communications over an impressive distance of approximately 100 to 200 feet indoors and up to 1000 feet outdoors. Roaming capability allows for even greater coverage using up to eight CEN-HPRFGW gateways. "Wi-Fi friendly" RF technology permits selection from 16 ISM channels within the 2.4 GHz spectrum to minimize the possibility of interference with other RF equipment including 802.11 devices.

The CEN-HPRFGW continuously monitors each device on the network, diligently keeping track when any device goes to sleep, shuts down, or wanders out of range, restoring communications seamlessly when the device reappears on the network. The control data to and from each associated device is passed cleanly and quickly through the gateway without any cumbersome processing to effect performance. Excessive network traffic and noise are combated using intelligent data routing to ensure every control signal is delivered intact to its intended destination without interruption.

Easy Setup
Setting up a network of ER wireless devices is simple, utilizing dynamic discovery to locate and acquire each RF device automatically. Up to 16 ER wireless touchpanels and remotes can be linked to a control system via a single CEN-HPRFGW gateway. Additional gateways may be installed to support more devices, with up to 16 gateways possible in a complete system (RF conditions allowing).

Wired communications between the CEN-HPRFGW gateway and the control system can be via Cresnet® or Ethernet, with power for the gateway delivered over Cresnet or via the included power pack.
