Syscor’s battery-powered PCU-X00 Repeater acts as a RF mesh network extender for WirelessHART products. This is useful in situations where WirelessHART products are out of range or cannot communicate due to a physical obstruction. Not for use with external sensor probes.
Primarily WirelessHART field devices monitoring petroleum infrastructure.
The Repeater's place within a WirelessHART network is as a communications-only node within the mesh network alongside data gathering nodes such as Sensor Hubs and/or Inclinometer.
Repeaters may be installed where a gap exists in the network but no data gathering is needed, or as a common point of connection for a collection of otherwise isolated data gathering nodes (e.g. connecting floating roof mounted nodes to the outside network via a repeater on the tank rim)
The 19Ah battery pack provide 10+ years of power.
For storage tank floating roof applications, right hand circular polarized (RHCP) antennas are recommended to alleviate multipath issues caused by metal obstructions.
