  • Easy to use.
  • Used to increase or extend range and overall propagation.
  • Allows wireless transmission around obstacles such as stages, screens & walls.
  • Simple configuration via PC using software, USB base station & BW-Toolkit.
  • Can be battery powered or use an external power supply.
  • IP67 rated NEMA4 protected.
  • 1 year manufacturer’s warranty.

The 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 800 m (2600 ft) which can be potentially doubled using BW-AR.
