  • Power: 24 VDC, 200mA
  • High Noise Rejection

Function:
    The RCI-RPT-RF2 is a store and forward radio signal repeater that can be used to extend the distance between a host and its remote(s). The unit receives date from the host and re-transmits it to the remote(s) and vice-versa. Using a repeater can provide access to remote locations that are not in direct line-of-sight with the host.

    Standard RCI-XXX-RF2 units are also capable of acting as a repeater thereby serving a dual function of remote unit and signal repeater. The license-free spread-spectrum radio technology allows small systems to be set up with very little effort and at a low cost. The technology ensures high communication reliability even in RF-intensive environments.

    All units are sold with a 1/4 wave omnidirectional whip antenna. Other antennas, such as the directional Yagi or Patch antennas, are sold separately.
