Measure to manage
The mains powered FX-WMBUS-RX4-M-LR-X is a wireless MBUS repeater mounted with AC/DC adapter in combined enclosure. The device is a plug-and-play and highly configurable repeater for extending the range between meters and a collector/gateway. The enclosure is chosen to make the repeater as discrete as possible.
Once a minute a packet is sent from the repeater and contains information about the repeater, such as number of routed packets, software version, and current battery level. The packet is also used for time synchronizing between repeaters in a multihop system. Furthermore, this packet can be used as an indication that the device is up and running and the load of the repeater.
The FX-WMBUS-R4-M-LR-X repeater needs to be equipped with two external antennas (Rx & Tx). Several types of antennas and optional extension cables are available.
