TPZ-Net Zigbee Wireless Set up – Completed in minutes!
The TPZ-Net range of Wireless sensors may boast a diverse application range, secure and reliable mesh networking capabilities, impressive indoor transmission ranges and BACnet communications. However there is another strength that the TPZ-Net range of Zigbee sensors offers: ease of set up.
For a product range that is designed to reduce installation costs and times it is important the TPZ-Net range offers just this. The wireless aspect allows this but so does the commissioning process.
Titan Products’ in house R&D team have developed a bespoke PC software program that allows the installer to commission a network in minutes.
A typical TPZ-Net Zigbee network requires a number of wireless field devices (sensors or repeaters) which transmit their environmental conditions to a TPZ-Net coordinator. The TPZ-Net coordinator would receive this information and then transmit this information on to either Titan Products BACnet controllers or a BACnet compatible building management system.
Add your Devices to the Zigbee Network
The software is supplied with a TPZ-Net USB dongle which allows the user to connect their laptop or computer to the network and search for coordinators and field devices.
Once the devices have been found by the software the user can then easily allocate the field devices required to specific co-ordinators and lock them into a network using a specific PAN ID.
The field devices can be given specific unit IDs and location names making it extremely easy to interpret the information on the Network Overview.
From the software the user can also add, edit, replace or remove devices easily from the network.
Other features include battery status indication and printable device lists. For further information about how to add sensors to a Zigbee Wireless network, visit our main Website or contact us for advice.
