Important: Use the FX-ZFR Pro Wireless Field Bus System only to provide an input to equipment under normal operating conditions. Where communication failure could lead to personal injury or property damage to the controlled equipment or other property, additional precautions must be designed into the control system. Incorporate and maintain other devices, such as supervisory or alarm systems or safety or limit controls, intended to warn of or protect against failure or malfunction of the FX-ZFR Pro Wireless Field Bus System.

The wireless products within an FX-PC system are ideal for any location where it is cost-prohibitive, difficult, or aesthetically unappealing to hardwire between devices. Locations include the following examples:

  • Hospitals, office buildings, university campuses, educational facilities, correctional facilities, and other commercial structures with brick or solid concrete walls and ceilings that impedehard-wired applications
  • Office buildings, retail stores, and other commercial real estate where tenant turnover is frequent and temporary walls and ceilings are common
  • Museums, historical buildings, atriums, and other sites where building aesthetics and historical preservation are important
  • Stadiums, arenas, gymnasiums, convention centers, airports, zoos, and other locations with large, open spaces
  • Buildings with marble, granite, glass, mirrored, wood veneer, or other decorative surfaces that present challenges to hardwiring
  • Buildings with asbestos or other hazardous materials that must not be disturbed
  • Buildings with occupants sensitive to disruptions to business
  • Regions with high labor costs

The FX-ZFR Pro Series System is approved by national compliance agencies for use only in the United States and Canada. See Technical specifications.
