7654 Long-range Wireless Repeater for Vantage Pro2 or Vantage Vue with Solar Power
Wireless repeaters extend the range possible between primary transmitter (eg the ISS unit) and the main VP2 console. Standard and long-range repeaters are available in both AC and solar-powered versions.
The 6354 solar-powered long-range repeaters have two separate internal connectors, one for receive and one for retransmit, intended for linking to external antennas (which must be specified and purchased separately). Because these add-on antennas can have much higher gain than the standard whip antenna contained in the standard repeaters they offer the possibility of much longer range in a single hop. With two high-gain antennas fitted, a range of up to 1km or potentially even more can be achieved, provided line-of-sight for each leg of the signal path is maintained.
There are two types of long-range repeater: 7654 is a solar-powered version and will operate in a completely isolated location. 7653 is the AC-powered version, and therefore is only suitable for use when a mains supply is close at hand.
For use with Wireless Vantage Pro2, Vantage Vue, or special-purpose stations.
Further details about using wireless repeaters are provided on the 'VP Supplementary Sensors, Stations and Accessories' page at our Main Site.
NB. Long-range repeaters require separate antennas - enquire by telephone or e-mail for details and prices.
