The Broadweigh Wireless Active Repeater is designed to help propagate the wireless signal, and can be used to enhance the signal in different environments, bounce signals around obstacles or double range - in line of sight applications.
Broadweigh Wireless Active Repeater
The Broadweigh Wireless Active Repeater (BW-AR) is powered by either a pair of alkaline ‘D’ Cells or an external power supply (5-18 Volts) and acts as transparent link between the Broadweigh shackles and either the USB base station or handheld display (BW-HR).
The BW-AR adds flags to any messages to prevent multiple repeats of information. It will not repeat a packet that has already been repeated. Hence there is only one extra ‘hop’ introduced and a maximum doubling of the radio range.
Adding multiple wireless active repeaters will not increase the range but can increase overall coverage. The Broadweigh shackles have a range of up to 800m (2600ft) which can be potentially doubled using BW-AR.
