Wireless Site Surveys Made Easy:
Wireless Site Surveys
Titan Products have launched a new 2 piece, battery powered Site Survey Kit to be used in conjunction with the TPZ-Net Zigbee Wireless range of sensors.
The Site Survey Kit is supplied in two parts, the TPZ-SSR receiver and the TPZ-SST transmitter. The TPZ-SST represents the wireless sensor and is a hand held device that pings a wireless signal to the TPZ-SSR and reports the signal strength between the two units. This is illustrated via the 3 LED readouts signalling either a good, weak or no signal.
The ‘toggle mode’ button on the TPZ-SST allows the user to select the sensor type to test. This sensor type can either be internal to represent all standard room sensors in the TPZ-Net range or external which includes Titan’s range of outside and plant sensors.
Once the sensor type is selected, a simple press of the ‘test’ button will send a test ping to the TPZ-SSR, which represents a TPZ-Net co-ordinator or repeater on the network. A signal will be received back by the TPZ-SST which will show the wireless signal strength. This signal strength determines whether the location is a good place to locate a sensor via the green LED or whether a repeater is required illustrated by the yellow or red LEDs.
The TPZ-SST requires 2 x standard AA batteries while the TPZ-SSR has an inbuilt re-chargeable battery and is supplied with an adaptor to plug the unit into a standard wall plug. This rechargeable battery offers up to 16 hours of use for each full charge.
The TPZ-Net range of sensors from Titan Products incorporates a wide range of battery powered sensors that communicate over Zigbee communications to the TPZ-Net co-ordinator. This co-ordinator then exposed all wireless information received onto a BACnet MS/TP network to be interrogated by a building management system (BMS).
