SPY SYSTEM WIRELESS
- Radio controlled system for managing and maintaining installations with self contained luminaires without bus cable
List of results, divided by function
Unlike the traditional Spy System, communication is made without wires through the creation of a network with mesh technology.
- Compatible with all Spy System central units
- The communication frequency and the MESH network allow to easily overcome the typical environmental obstacles
- Automatic luminaire acquisition
- It guarantees the same functions as the Spy System with bus
The Spy System central unit must be used in conjunction with an Access Point (SSW-ACCESS-POINT) and luminaires of the Spy System Wireless family.
The central unit can monitor and control each luminaire.
CENTRAL UNIT ADVANTAGES
Spy System Wirelsss is compatible with all Spy System central units.
It is indeed possible to add a Wireless Access Point or Expander (SSW-ACCESS-POINT or SSW-EXP) in existing Spy System installations, so that the system can be upgraded by adding wireless luminaires to the existing luminaires connected via bus wire.
It’s possible to implement mixed installations, existing or new, where the communication occurs both in a wireless mode and over the cable.
The SSW-ACCESS-POINT device can in fact be added to create a totally wireless installation or, if used where some luminaires are connected via bus wire, a mixed bus/wireless one.
The emergency luminaires equipped with wireless communication module will only require a 230 Vac power supply.
The compatible ordering codes are all those with Spy System Wireless function.
In case of installation in critical radio coverage environments, correct radio communication can in any case be tested by means of MONITOR BUS function and then gradually continue with installation, exploiting the great advantage of being able to push to considerable distances inside enclosed environments.
Indoor coverage (corridors, rooms with obstructions, etc.): ~ 20 - 30 meters
Open fields coverage: ~ 100 meters
The measurements are intended as distances between two luminaires
Spy System Wireless creates a wireless network of the MESH type.
In a network of this type, each product operates as a repeater node (for the supervision signal from the central unit) to the other nodes (luminaires).
Each node of the network, i.e. each luminaire, is interconnected with the others. Operating in this way, inside a typical installation environment, it is possible to reach considerable distances from the central unit, exploiting the maximum range of coverage of each single node.
The system guarantees an easy and fast initial configuration thanks to the system’s self-learning capability.
Management over time is also easier than traditional system because a Wireless Spy System permits self-generation in the event of failure of one or more luminaires. If the radio signal between two adjacent luminaires fails, the connection is re-established by the closest node between them.
Configuration is done during the test phase: the installer does not have to configure anything, but simply supply the luminiares. Self-acquisition of products takes place automatically as in the case of traditional units.
In case of having to move luminaire X in place of luminaire Y (e.g. Cristal Evo in place of Lyra Evo) the network will auto-reconfigure itself automatically and the operation will be absolutely transparent for the installer.
Same features as a Spy System: identification of luminaires via serial/number already installed in the factory, possibility of assigning descriptions, creating groups, etc.
This is an accessory which restores mesh communication between Wireless Spy System products in critical environments where radio coverage may be compromised by certain factors such as thick walls or plasterboard structures.
The wireless repeater node (SSW-EXTENDER) therefore acts as a repeater between the Access Point and the first luminaire of the system or between luminaires with radio coverage problems.
In fact, the SSW-EXP device allows to add 128 extra luminaires to the central unit to which it is connected.
Maximum number of Expanders that can be used = 4. Maximum number of luminaires manageable = 682 (170 + 128 x 4)
