X10DR Elite Plus Rooftop Gateway - Model: XRTG-EX2 - 700 meters
To provide even greater range and into building coverage, Wireless Pacific has developed a unique external mount housing for the Elite Plus Gateway We are now able to achieve a range in excess of 700 meters by simply repackaging the standard Elite Plus Gateway electronic circuitry into an IP67 rated housing and mounting the gateway externally, unobstructed, on a roof, light rack or similar. When used with multiple handsets the XRTG Plus acts as a Repeater doubling the effective range between 2 or 3 handsets.
Operating in the 2.4GHz band means antenna coax cable losses can be significant. Even the best available coax suffers a 3dB loss on a 5.5 meter (17ft) cable run. That's the equivalent of losing half the RF signal! Of most importance, that means greater into building penetration compared with a standard gateway device.
The XRTG Plus ruggedized housing mounts on a stainless L shape bracket and is fully weatherproof against the elements. XRTG operation has been confirmed up to 92C (197F) and down to -30C** (-22F) meaning it can operate externally in most environment extremes including external use on Fire appliances, pumpers, ladder trucks and other fire response vehicle types..
Touchless Pairing Process
Hold the desired handset nearby, pressing both its blue buttons until the blue LED flashes rapidly and the handset beeps (after 5 secs). Next, with the mobile radio powered OFF, connect the XRTG-EX2 gateway to the host radio interface XCA interface adaptor ( Red fused wire must be connected to 12VDC). A few seconds later pairing confirmation tones will sound from the handset and its LED will glow solid. Repeat entire process to add a second handset.
The standard XRTG-EX2 package includes:
AES 128 Bit Encrypted, Rooftop mount gateway, with L mounting bracket, XMPA multipolarity antenna, 6 meter / 20ft interface cable, user card and 12-month warranty.
XIC-6.0 Outdoor shielded 6 meter - 20 foot interface cable is terminated with RJ45 connectors. Longer or shorter-length XIC cables can be ordered optionally. Note only our flat type interface cables are compatible. Order the XCA Radio specific adaptor to suit your mobile radio. Click Here
For standalone "repeater" operation:
We recommend you order with XRTB battery back-up with ACDC power supply.
Order up to 2 sets of XEX2 Elite Plus X10DR Handset packages for use with each XRTG-EX2.
**Extreme Cold Operation:
Should you wish to use in extreme low temperatures, please advise (email@example.com) when your order is placed as such deployment require use of internal heater elements and deployment in fixed installation locations must be such as to prevent the build of Ice and Snow which can dramatically reduce operating range.
