A wireless signal strength indication LED displays the reception strength of the transmissions between the FX-ZFR1810 Coordinators, FX-ZFR1811 Routers, and the FX-WRZ Series Sensors. This LED helps determine the network connectivity status when selecting locations for the devices during system installation.

Wireless transmissions between FX-ZFR1810 Coordinators and FX-ZFR1811 Routers occur as needed. Wireless transmissions between FX-ZFR1811 Routers and FX-WRZ Sensors occur approximately every 60 seconds or when the occupancy button on the FX-WRZ Sensor is pressed. Refer to the FX-WRZ Series Wireless Room Temperature Sensors Installation Instructions (Part No. 24-10332-37) for more information.

Approximately once every 10 seconds, the Signal Strength LED flashes to indicate the strength of the signal received from neighboring devices. See Table 1.

Note: The Signal Strength LEDs on all the FX-ZFR1811 routers in a network extinguish after approximately 2 hours of normal operation, making the FX-ZFR1811 less distracting when installed in an open area. To re-enable theFX- ZFR1811 LEDs for troubleshooting purposes, perform a scan using the FX-ZFR Checkout Tool (ZCT) or push the Status Push Button on the FX-ZFR1810 coordinator.

Refer to the FX-ZFR1800 Series Wireless Field Bus System Technical Bulletin (LIT-12011660) for more information on determining the signal strength between ZFR1800 Series devices in your application.
