Maximum number of repeaters

Hi!

I am Paula, my application consists of a sensor network. The sensor data are transmitted from the concentrator to an end device. The concentrator sends the Original Message which is repeated by repeaters using the protocol the message Simple Repeating. My problem is I need more of 15 repeaters and I read in the documentation that the maximum number of repeaters in the system is 15. How I can add more repeaters on my network?

Thank you.

Best regards,

Paula.

Maximum number of repeaters

Hi Paula,

As you stated below the maximum number of repeaters is 15. If you need more than 15 repeaters you will need to use a different approach, like creating multiple networks.

Maximum number of repeaters

What means creating multiple networks? means creating another network with other repeaters, another end device and another concentrator or simply we can change the channel of repeaters that we want add to our network.

We want a sensor network in a straight line with repeaters every x meters. One sensor can be viewed by two or more repeaters. Is a many-to-one architecture.

Could more repeaters be added in the same network using another protocol?

Thank you for your answer.

Best regards,

Paula.

Maximum number of repeaters

Hi Paula,

Creating multiple networks can be done in multiple ways. One way would be to operate on different PAN IDs. Another way would be to operate on different channels. Each network would have to be bridged to concentrator through ethernet or another means.

I think your company could really benefit from LSRs Design Services group. We specialize in solutions for these types of networks.
