How do your wireless controls operate and what bandwidth are they running in?

Our wireless communication operates through bandwidth determined by the product type.  Keep in mind all signals are dependent upon a clear Line-Of-Sight and will diminish proportionately as LOS degrades.

The MPCW6 and MPCW7 wireless equipment operate in the 900MHz spectrum and is FCC certified as transmitter ID: PLHZW4 and Industry Canada IC: 4006A-ZW4, it complies with the following:

  • Part 15.247 rules govern operation of the either FHSS or DSSS radio operation.
  • OFHSS radios are required under these rule to limit RF transmit power (measured at the antenna) to 1W
  • Further, the radio must hop over a minimum of 50 channels, with a maximum dwell time of 400ms, 20db bandwidth at 500 kHz over a 20 second period.

The MPCX and MPCX2 wireless equipment operates in the 2.4 GHz spectrum and shares it with other devices by scanning for the best channel and utilizing Listen Before Talk, sometimes called Listen Before Transmit (LBT) technology.  Primarily developed for the battery powered hand-held, this technology utilizes Ultra-Low Power (ULP) components and techniques. The handheld technology is built to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.15.4 standards.

Our wireless signal to the message center operates on the same 2.4GHz frequency as our handheld control device.
