General information

Application

The RadioDuct duct radio system acts as a wireless data link

  • Between X-AIRCONTROL zone modules and the X-AIRCONTROL zone master

  • Among the X-AIRCONTROL zone modules


The system is used whenever laying a bus cable for the connection is very difficult or not even possible. The connection variant has advantages compared to conventional bus cables, especially when it comes to refurbishment and retrofitting.

Depending on the characteristics of the channel system, the radio link range may vary. When using several RadioDuct modules in the duct system, the radio connection is continuously optimised via the module's integrated, self-learning mesh function and frequency hopping. These functions find the best radio path through the duct system for the data packets to be transmitted. For longer distances and branched channel systems, mesh repeaters are available that pick up, amplify and forward the radio signals.

  • Up to 30 m cable length between RadioDuct module and X-AIRCONTROL zone module and zone master

  • RadioDuct module mountable on the duct or wall

  • Antenna connected to the RadioDuct module by cable, allowing easy and free positioning in the duct

  • Simple commissioning of the radio connection via guided pairing process

  • High operational reliability due to permanent self-monitoring of the communication between RadioDuct module and X-AIRCONTROL system, as well as the radio mesh connection


Parts and characteristics

  • Plastic casing mountable to the duct or wall

  • Three-colour display of the status of the radio network connection (green, yellow, red)

  • Integral service socket for configuration and diagnosis of the RadioDuct module

  • Antenna for integration in the duct with 50 cm connection cable and antenna holder for duct installation

Bidirectional data transmission via radio link through ducts

Note: Additional installation examples in the installation and operating manual

The RadioDuct radio system is used to connect X-AIRCONTROL zone modules to the X-AIRCONTROL zone master via a radio link through ducts. In the process, the X-AIR zone modules can each be equipped with a RadioDuct module as shown in the figure above and send their data to the X-AIR zone master. In addition, the X-AIRCONTROL zone modules in the zone can also be connected in the classical manner by means of a cable. In this case, the first zone module sends the data to the X-AIRCONTROL zone master by radio (see the figure below).

The RadioDuct system uses every other node in the RadioDuct network to get the data to its destination. In contrast to normal networks, the distribution of many nodes throughout the system is even an advantage here. This is because each node in the RadioDuct network forwards the data packets of the other nodes to their destinations. The system independently searches for the best route to the desired recipient. Such networks are known as mesh networks. Furthermore, the required radio power is adapted to the transmission distance. The radio power can assume a maximum value of 100 mW so that the requirements of the applicable radio standards for the 2.4 GHz band are met. To counteract any interference in the frequency band, the RadioDuct module supports automatic frequency hopping. As a result, the respective radio channel with the least interference is selected throughout.

The connection between the RadioDuct slaves and the RadioDuct master is established via a service tool and a simple pairing process mapped therein. The connection and data exchange take place via an encrypted radio channel with 128-bit AES technology. This technology provides high data security and meets the requirements of data protection standards.

Product details

Application of RadioDuct module on X-AIRCONTROL zone master

Application

The RadioDuct module connected to the X-AIRCONTROL zone master also serves as the master for the RadioDuct mesh network to be set up. The RadioDuct master coordinates the network setup and receives all data from the field from the zone modules with RadioDuct module and transmits it to the associated X-AIRCONTROL zone master. In addition, the RadioDuct system can be used to connect 2 X-AIRCONTROL zone modules with one another via a radio link. For this purpose, one of the two RadioDuct modules must also act as master, preferably the module that is closest to the X-AIRCONTROL zone master in the bus line (Figure 2 on page 3).

In addition, the RadioDuct system can be used to connect 2 X-AIRCONTROL zone modules with one another via a radio link. For this purpose, one of the two RadioDuct modules must also act as master, preferably the module that is closest to the X-AIRCONTROL zone master in the bus line (Figure 2 on page 3).
