Conlab has announced its latest Australian made product, the ZigSense Range Tester model ZS24-RGR-001. It was designed to assist System Integrators, Engineers and Electricians-Installers to reliably conduct wireless site surveys prior to installing fully functional ZigBee networks systems.
The Range Tester kit will assist the user in optimizing communication paths and identifying the best possible installation position for ZigBee based wireless nodes. Model ZS24-RGR-001 contains a pair of wireless network nodes (Coordinator + End Point) that were matched during production. Model ZS24-RGR-001 communicates using ZigBee radios over 2.4GHz license free frequency band.
Two models of range testers are available: ZS24-RGR-001-LP supporting 2mW TX power for short range communications and ZS24-RGR-001-HP supporting 50mW TX power for longer range communications. The end point node is a portable and light weight device powered by two AA 1.5VDC Lithium batteries.
It is designed to be carried around during the site survey process. The portable node conserves battery power through built-in sleep mode. The Range Tester Kit is very simple to use and no PC software is required.
