CEStronics.
4
RF-NET Repeater
For your safety
 Do not drop the Repeater on the floor, on hard surfaces or
on hard objects.
 Use surge arresters to avoid damage to your Repeater
through overvoltage, for example by lightning.
 Protect the electronic components of the Repeater against
water and other liquids.
 The Repeater contains highly sensitive electronic parts that
may be damaged or destroyed through static charges. Do
not disassemble the Repeater in rooms with built up static
charge. Ensure potential equalization when working on the
Repeater to remove any static charge.
 Do not use the Repeater in corrosive atmospheres (chlorine,
ammonia, lime water).
 Only use the Repeater in rooms in which the humidity does
not exceed 95 %.
 Do not use the Repeater in rooms with a high level of dust
formation.
 Do not use the Repeater near sources of heat.
 Do not expose the Repeater to temperatures below 0 °C or
above +40 °C.
Danger of malfunctions
 Do not cover the housing of the Repeater with any metallic
material.
 Satisfy yourself when installing the Repeater that the
Repeater and all other system components are in perfect
working order. Malfunctions of the Repeater and other
system components may compromise the functioning of the
entire system.
 If necessary, use uninterrupted power supply (UPS) systems
to ensure an uninterrupted operation of your locking
system.

RF-NET Repeater
For your safety
Intended use
The Repeater serves to extend the range of the data
transmission between locking devices and Access Points within
the CEStronics RF-NET radio network. Data are transmitted
between the Repeater and the locking devices and Access
Points via 868 MHz radio signals. The Repeater does not work
without an Access Point. The Repeater is exclusively intended
and may only be used for that purpose.
Any other use is considered to be improper and may result in
property damage or even personal injury.
CEStronics GmbH does not accept any liability for any damage
resulting from improper use.

Introduction
Introduction
Description
The Repeater part of the OMEGA system. It extends existing
radio links between installed Access Points and locking devices
by up to 25 metres.
For the operation of the Repeater no configuration is required;
all necessary settings are made by the Repeater itself.
To put the Repeater into service, you only have to select a
suitable place of installation and fasten the Repeater.
Once powered on, the Repeater will automatically establish the
connection with the Access Points.
Other features of the Repeaters:
 Integrated 868 MHz RF transceiver.
 Range increase of up to 25 metres.
 One Repeater can be used for each Access Point.
 The Repeater is supplied with electric power by the power
pack delivered together with the Repeater. The use of any
other power packs is not permitted.
 Two colour LEDs for visual signalization of data traffic.



The stated maximum range increase of 25 metres
cannot be guaranteed as it depends on the local
building conditions. CEStronics recommends to have
your building situation checked by your professional
CEStronics partner.

Introduction
RF ranges
 Ensure that the permissible RF ranges are observed. Install
the Repeaters within the maximum RF range of 25 metres
each.
The maximum RF distance between Access Point (1) and
Repeater (2) is 25 metres.
The maximum RF distances between Repeater (2) and locking
devices (3) is 25 meters.
The RF range may vary considerably depending on the building
situation. See also note on page 8.
12
RF-NET Repeater
Introduction
Checking the range
The optional RF-TRACE-MASTER allows you to check the quality
of the radio frequency (RF) link between the OMEGA server and
your locking devices.
The RF-TRACE-MASTER triggers the following signals of your
locking devices:
 Green LED of your locking cylinder, IES or wall terminal
flashes twice: very strong RF link.
 Green LED of your locking cylinder, IES or wall terminal
flashes once: adequate RF link.
 Red LED of your locking cylinder, IES or wall terminal
flashes: RF link is not OK and must be checked.
 Red and green LEDs flash alternately or simultaneously:
weak RF link.
To verify the quality of the RF link to your locking devices,
proceed as follows:
 Hold the RF-TRACE-MASTER in front of your locking device.
The verification is performed immediately.

During the verification, the Access Point emits the
same signals as the locking device.

NOTICE
If a Repeater fails, your locking devices
cannot be reached any more.
 Make sure that the Repeaters are always easily
accessible for servicing.
 Make sure that all electrical connections can be
separated at any time.
NOTICE
The Repeater may be damaged if not fitted
properly.
 Only skilled personnel may fit the Repeater.
 This personnel must have been trained on the
product by CEStronics or a CEStronics partner.
NOTICE
Static charges may damage or interfere with
the electronic components of the Repeater.
 Do not disassemble the Repeater in rooms with
built up static charge.
 Ensure potential equalization when working on
the Repeater to remove any static charge.
14
RF-NET Repeater
Fitting the Repeater
When fitting the Repeater, you must ensure the following
conditions:
 Make sure that the power supply and the power supply cable
can be plugged in.
 The Repeater must not be fitted on metallic surfaces.
 Always install the Repeater as far away from ground
potentials as possible to avoid interference with the radio
traffic.
 Do not fit the Repeater in the immediate vicinity to Access
Points or other Repeaters.
 The Repeater may not be fitted outdoors.
The Repeater is supplied preassembled. To commission your
Repeater, you only have to fasten the wall mount at a suitable
position and push the Repeater on to the wall mount.
You require suitable fasteners for the wall mount of the
Repeater. Which fasteners and related tools you need, depends
on the surface at the place of installation.
 Purchase suitable fasteners material from your specialized
fasteners dealer.
CAUTION
Danger of injury by improper fitting.
 Ensure that the Repeater is only fitted by
appropriately trained skilled personnel.
RF-NET Repeater
15
Fitting the Repeater
The Repeater must be fitted at an easily accessible
location, e.g. near a ceiling or on a wall.
Suitable fitting positions are for instance
 above a door frame, at a height of about 2
metres with as much distance to the nearest
object or wall as possible, or
 similar positions at a height of about 2 metres or
more and also with as much distance to the
nearest object or wall as possible.
The Repeater is to be installed with the ports pointing upwards.
This fitting position is the basis of the Declaration of
Conformity.
Other fitting positions are possible but the
operator's responsibility.
 In case of lateral fitting, you, as the operator,
are responsible for the safe fitting.
NOTICE
Danger of injury by improper fitting.
 Ensure safe fitting if the repeater is fitted
laterally.
16
RF-NET Repeater
Fitting the Repeater
Wherever possible, you should check the reception before the
final fastening to determine the orientation of the Repeater and
the antenna:
 For this purpose, put the Repeater temporarily into service
(see page 18 ff).
 Verify the reception at your locking devices with the RFTRACE-MASTER card (see page 12).
The orientation of the antenna can be adjusted. As long as the
antenna has not yet been screwed in tight, it can be rotated by
360°. After it has been tightened, the antenna can only be
aligned vertically and horizontally.
 If the RF link is satisfactory, fit the Repeater permanently in
the determined position:
 Fasten the wall mount with suitable fasteners at a right
angle at its proper position.
RF-NET Repeater
17
Fitting the Repeater
 Push the Repeater onto the wall mount.
The Repeater only sits properly after it has snapped into place
in the wall mount.
 Do not yet screw the antenna (1) tight into the antenna
base (2) at this time. Do not use any tools for tightening.
 Establish the required cable connections as described on
page 11 "Connections".
 Put the Repeater into service.
18
RF-NET Repeater
Fitting the Repeater
 Check the orientation of the antenna to ensure sufficient
effective radiated power.
 Use the optional RF-TRACE-MASTER to check the effective
radiated power (see also note on page 12 "Checking the
range").
 Orientate the antenna so that your locking devices receive
the maximum effective radiated power.
As long as the antenna has not yet been screwed in
tight, you can rotate it by 360° and align it vertically
and horizontally.
 Once you have found the best position of the antenna,
tighten it with your hand. Never use a tool to tighten the
antenna.
The antenna is tight if it can no longer be rotated.
NOTICE
The printed circuit board of the Repeater may
be damaged through mechanical forces.
 Be careful not to damage the printed circuit
board when fitting the antenna.
