Wireless Adapter - Advanced

Wireless Adapter - Advanced is a USB-based wireless adapter that enables Zigbee TM wireless connectivity with an RP controller, AS-P server, or AS-B server, extending the controller's or server's point count and bringing flexibility in retrofit applications.

The adapter is a Zigbee Certified Product when it is used with RP controllers and automation servers. The adapter is compliant with Zigbee 3.0.

An automation server equipped with the adapter can communicate over the Zigbee wireless protocol with up to 164 wireless devices, depending on the type of Zigbee device and the radio bandwidth usage of the device. An RP controller equipped with the adapter can communicate with up to 30 wireless devices.

For more information, see Supported Wireless Devices .

The adapter works seamlessly within EcoStruxure Building Management systems so that Zigbee objects become easily available to the user.

The adapter’s compact design allows it to plug in to RP controllers or automation servers in tight spaces and the optional mounting cradle, wall plate, and USB cable extension allow for the choice of a wall, ceiling, or exterior of the enclosure mount to maximize the transmission and reception of signals from distributed Zigbee devices.

The adapter is plugged into the USB host port on the RP controller, AS-P server, or AS-B server. The adapter is powered by the RP controller or automation server, which also provides transient protection to the adapter.

The adapter must be professionally installed to avoid harmful interference to radio communications and to maintain the regulatory compliance and approvals for the device. For more information, see Wireless Adapter - Advanced Regulatory Compliance and Approvals .

In WorkStation, the firmware of the adapter will be automatically updated when you update the RP controller or automation server to which it is connected.
