AL-IME2-EXP - Networx Gateway Expander by Alarm Lock
The Trilogy AL-IME2-EXP Networx Expander extends the coverage area of a Gen 2 Series Gateways to Trilogy Networx Locks within a PC network, allowing greater distances for the placement of up to a maximum rated capacity of 63 Networx locks per Version 2 Gateway.
Used in place of additional Gateways, each AL-IME2-EXP Expander can extend the Gen. 2 Gateway's coverage area by approximately 100 feet. Typically introduced into the network when a Gateway does not provide sufficient signal strength to a particular area, it is designed to extend coverage and thus facilitate communications with a wireless lock or a group of wireless locks. The AL-IME2-EXP Expander must be used with a Generation 2 AL-IME2 Series Gateway, but can be intermixed in an existing system that incldues older "non-version 2" Gateways. However, at least one Version 2 Gateway must be powered and online before an AL-IME2-EXP Expander will function within the network.
AL-IME2-EXP Expanders are more cost-effective and easier to wire than conventional gateways. They also provide a simplified 'Plug and Play' setup, where the Networx system automatically identifies all newly powered Expanders and quickly self-determines the best wireless signal pathways. Up to 7 Expanders can be added to support one Generation 2 Series Gateway. Each Gen 2. Gateway and a maximum of seven (7) Expanders can be addressed as one group. There are a total of 99 addressable groups supported (addresssable by two rotary switches).
