Increase the radio range of the tempmate.®-R devices

The tempmate.®-R repeaters are intended for situations where radio communication between the telemeter and receiver (RF to USB key) could be interrupted by obstacles or too great a distance. In such a case, the repeater should be installed at half-distance. It then gathers the data from the remote radio data loggers in order to transmit it directly to the RF to USB key.

There are two versions available:

  • Indoor: for use in buildings.
    Uses mains power
  • Outdoor: outdoor use,
    with power supplied by solar energy

With a repeater, it is possible to double or significantly increase the logger’s radio range. However, in monitoring mode, power usage is accordingly twice as high (depending on the waiting time and transmission times to the receiver). As a guideline, in this situation you should halve the logger’s battery life. It also always better to use a larger antenna (ideally grounded full-wave) than a repeater.

Easy installation

The radio connection occurs automatically as soon as the devices have been installed. The transmitter sends its data to the PC, dependent on its position: either directly or via the repeater.
