Distech Controls’ Open-to-Wireless™ Wireless Receiver enables controllers to receive input signals from wireless sensors and switches. It is fully compatible with Distech Controls’ LonWorks® and BACnet® controllers, and uses the EnOcean protocol for communication.
The Wireless Receiver can be installed in multiple ways. For example, using double-face adhesive tape, the Wireless Receiver can be mounted on almost any type of surface and be within close proximity of the controller. If the controller is in a metal enclosure, the Wireless Receiver can be mounted on the enclosure’s exterior using a ½-inch NPT hub. The Wireless Receiver performs best when the antenna is elongated and away from metal objects or surfaces (more than 1” (2.5 cm) away from metal).
A 6.5 ft (2 m) long cord, provided with the Wireless Receiver, is used to connect it to the controller. In building retrofits, the Wireless Receiver allows system integrators to use wireless sensors and switches, thereby minimizing impact on building structure and preserving original architecture and materials. Wiring complexities are avoided and any initial design errors can be easily fixed. Because the Wireless Receiver can be directly connected to Open-to-Wireless ready controllers, their input counts can be easily expanded, making field upgrades simple and straightforward.
