The WNC1800/FX-ZFR182x Pro (FX-ZFR Pro) Series Wireless Field Bus System provides a wireless platform and an IP interface for all BACnet MS/TP FX-PCG and TEC3000 Thermostat Controller (TEC) family controllers using BACnet protocol over 2.4 GHz wireless ISM band.

The pairing of an FX-ZFR1821 or FX-ZFR1822 Pro router and any FX-PC device, or a wireless TEC3000 model (with built-in router), are referred to as Wireless Enabled Field Controllers (WEFCs). An FX-PC device is an FX-PCA, FX-PCG, FX-PCX, or FX-PCV controller.

Figure 1. FX-ZFR Pro Wireless Field Bus Devices

An FX-ZFR Pro Series system consists of the following:
  • up to eight Wireless Network Coordinators (WNC) Gateways per FX Supervisory Controller
  • up to 35 WEFCs per coordinator
  • up to 100 total WEFCs per supervisory controller, depending on the FX Supervisory Controller
  • up to nine WRZ-TTx Series sensors per WEFC with a maximum of 100 combined total of WEFC and FX-WRZ sensors per coordinator
  • additional FX-ZFR1821 or FX-ZFR1822 Wireless Field Bus Router-Repeaters connected as required, acting as repeaters
Note: Repeaters extend the wireless transmission distance of the BACnet data communications, fill in any gaps within the wireless mesh network, and provide alternate wireless data transmission pathways.

Together, these components create a wireless mesh network that allows the exchange of data between the collection of WNC Gateways, WEFCs, TEC3000s, and FX-WRZs within the FX-ZFR Pro Series system’s wireless network and an FX Supervisory Controller, using standard BACnet/IP communications.
