Creston CEN-GWEXER

The CEN-GWEXER is a 2-way RF wireless transceiver designed for use with Crestron® infiNET EX® and “ER” (Extended Range RF) wireless devices. A single CEN-GWEXER gateway enables an entire wireless network of Crestron remotes, keypads, lighting dimmers, motorized shades, thermostats, door locks, and other devices to communicate with a Crestron control system.

Ultra-reliable infiNET EX wireless technology provides steadfast 2-way RF communications throughout a residential or commercial structure without the need for physical control wiring. Employing a 2.4 GHz mesh network topology, nearly every infiNET EX device on the network acts as an “expander,” relaying wireless commands between the gateway and all the other “EX” devices on the network to ensure that every command reaches its intended destination without disruption. Each infiNET EX device that is added to the network effectively increases the range and stability of the entire network by providing multiple redundant signal paths. The wireless range between any two EX devices is typically up to 150 ft (46 m) indoors.[1]
