The FX-ZFR Wireless Field Bus System provides wireless monitoring and control of HVAC equipment within multiple levels of a FX system using BACnet protocol over 2.4 GHz ZigBee® Wireless to communicate between FX Supervisory Controllers and room temperature sensors.
Any FX-PC controller can be wirelessly enabled using an FX-ZFR1811 Wireless Field Bus Router or the ZFR1812 Wall Mount Wireless Field Bus Router. One router is required per FX-PC controller. This pairing is referred to as a Wireless Enabled Programmable Controller (WEPC).
An FX-ZFR Wireless Field Bus System consists of the following:
up to 8 FX-ZFR1810 Wireless Field Bus Coordinators per supervisory controller field bus trunk
up to 35 WEPCs per coordinator
up to 100 WEFCs per supervisory controller field bus trunk
up to 9 FX-WRZxxx Series wireless sensors per WEFC with a maximum of 100 combined total of WEFC and WRZ sensors per coordinator
additional FX-ZFR1811 or FX-ZFR1812 Wireless Field Bus Routers-Repeaters as required, acting as repeaters
Together, these components create a wireless mesh network that allows the exchange of data between the collection of devices within the FX-ZFR Wireless Field Bus System’s wireless network and wired BACnet MS/TP devices.
Use the FX-ZFRRPT-0 optional repeater power supply with an FX-ZFR1811 or FX-ZFR1812 router to serve as a repeater to extend wireless mesh networks and provide multiple wireless transmission pathways.
