Cortet by CEL today announced the availability of the Cortet Z10 Range Extender (CGW-Z-010) for use in various wireless sensor network (WSN), machine-to-machine (M2M), and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. The Z10 Range Extender has been optimised for RF performance, providing industry-leading range within a compact and attractive design that is ideal for any project.
The Cortet Z10 Range Extender is a reliable, secure, and easy to install way to extend the range and/or capacity of a zigbee network within large facilities or facilities with a poor RF environment. The Z10 Range Extender is capable of distances greater than 325 feet (100M) in interior environments. It’s built in software makes it easy to set up the extender and commission the device into a zigbee network.
The Z10 is an HA 1.2 compliant repeater and range extender for a zigbee network. The Z10 requires a zigbee Coordinator such as the Cortet E100 Gateway. The Z10 Range Extender is also REACH and ROHS certified and has been tested to work well with a wide range of industrial lighting controllers, luminaires, lamps and other accessories from companies like Leviton, ILLUMRA and Magnitude.
“The Z10 acts as a relay for zigbee messages between zigbee devices that are otherwise out of range,” explains Erik Davidson, Cortet’s director of marketing and product management. “For example, a Cortet Z10 Range Extender can be used to relay messages between zigbee end nodes and an otherwise out of range zigbee Coordinator such as a Cortet E100 Gateway. The Cortet Z10 Range Extender can also be used to increase the total number of zigbee devices that a zigbee Coordinator can communicate with.”
