About this task

To use an FX-ZFR Wireless Field Bus Router as a repeater in a One-to-One Wireless Sensing application:

Procedure

  1. Set the AREA DIP switches on the FX-WRZ7860 Receiver and the FX-WRZ Series Sensor to the OFF position.
  2. Set the TRANSMITTER ID DIP switches on the FX-WRZ7860 Receiver and the FX-WRZ Series Sensor to the desired RF address.
  3. Set the PAN OFFSET DIP switches on the FX-ZFR or FX-ZFR Pro Series Wireless Field Bus Router to the same RF address as the TRANSMITTER ID DIP switches.
  4. Apply power to the FX-WRZ7860-0 Receiver and wait approximately 5 seconds.
  5. Apply power to the FX-ZFR Wireless Field Bus Router and wait approximately 30 seconds for it to associate with the FX-WRZ7860 Receiver.
  6. Apply power to the FX-WRZ Series Sensor and wait approximately 30 seconds for it to associate with the RF network.
  7. Turn the FX-WRZ7860 Receiver to the off position and wait approximately 2 minutes. Waiting for 2 minutes gives the FX-WRZ Series Wireless Sensor time to discover the loss of the FX-WRZ7860-0 Receiver, and to associate with the FX-ZFR Wireless Field Bus Router.
  8. Turn the FX-WRZ7860 Receiver to the ON position. Communication reestablishes with the FX-WRZ7860 Receiver, and the FX-WRZ Series Sensor messages are sent through the FX-ZFR Wireless Field Bus Router.
    Note: If the FX-WRZ7860 Receiver, FX-WRZ Series Sensor, and FX-ZFR Wireless Field Bus Router are within range but fail to communicate with each other, reset each device. With power applied to each device, change any DIP switch for a few seconds and then move it back to its original position. Each device resets and erases any former network settings.
