6 Operation
The Mesh Router only operates in RTR mode. Therefore, when it is
turned on, it is always operational.
Whenever you start Mesh Router, it tries to rejoin the last network it was
part of. Therefore, if the network is within range and if the channel and
Pan ID have not changed, the Mesh Router should be able to rejoin the
network without action on your part.
Make sure the battery is installed before operating the Mesh Router.
Refer to page 36 for information on battery installation and replacement.
6.1 Turning The Mesh Router On
Hold down the [MODE] key and release it when the Mesh Router beeps.
The display indicates that it is now on:
The Mesh Router performs a self-test. The display briefly shows the
firmware version:
Next, it shows the firmware’s build date and time:

This is followed by the Modem Type:
Then the Mesh Router initializes connection with the wireless network.
When the network is found and communication is established, the main
reading screen is shown. It includes the Pan ID, EUI (Extended Unique
Identifier), channel number, and battery charge (percentage):
If the Mesh Router is unable to find a radio network to connect with, it
searches, but if it is unsuccessful, it displays this screen:
If you see this screen, check the following:
•
•
•
•
•
Is the antenna is attached?
Does the Pan ID match the network you want to join?
Does the Channel match the channel on which the other instruments
are operating?
Are the other instruments turned on and within range?
Did you change the Pan ID or Channel? If so, restart the instrument.

6.2 Turning The Mesh Router Off
Hold down the [MODE] key through the “5…4…3… 2… 1… Power
Off” sequence. When you see “Power off,” release the [MODE] key.
The Mesh Router is off when the display is blank.
6.3 Battery Charge Indicator
The Mesh Router’s internal battery is designed to provide power for up
to 10 days. When the battery gets low, the Mesh Router beeps once per
minute and the battery icon is empty. It is recommended that the battery
be changed immediately, to minimize disruption.
Battery power is indicated by “B:” followed by a number and a percent
sign. For example, B: 100%. The battery should be replaced before it is
completely discharged. See page 36 for the replacement procedure.
When the battery is completely depleted, the LCD displays “Power off.”
and the LED and buzzer alarm activate once per second. The Mesh
Router shuts down after you press any key, or shuts down automatically
if you do not press a key for 60 seconds.
Note: An external power source, the RAE PowerPak, can be used as a
substitute for the internal battery. See page 46 for installation details.

8 Deploying Mesh Routers
Important! Before deploying a Mesh Router, it is important to
have the Pan ID and Channel number on which the rest of the
network is operating. Without these numbers programmed into
your Router, you cannot make it communicate with the network.
8.1 With FMC 2000 Controller
When deploying a MeshGuard network that utilizes Mesh Routers,
follow this setup order:
1. Turn on the FMC2000 Controller.
2. Turn on a Mesh Router and use it to measure signal strength at
each prospective detection location. Press [MODE] on the
Mesh Router to see the signal strength:
Signal strength
a. If the signal strength reading on the Mesh Router is 30% or
greater, then that indicates a MeshGuard or MeshGuard
LEL will communicate reliably from this location with the
FMC2000 controller. Locate and turn on a MeshGuard or
MeshGuard LEL detector here.
b. If readings are below 30%, relocate the Mesh Router until
the reading is 30% or higher. If this new location is
unacceptably far from the desired detection location, an
additional Mesh Router or MeshGuard in RTR mode is
needed to relay the signal from this new location.
17
Mesh Router User’s Guide
3. Follow this procedure until all MeshGuard or MeshGuard LEL
detectors in the network are deployed. Check communication
reliability for all detectors and routers at the FMC2000.
8.2 With Portable Monitors
When deploying a wireless network that utilizes Mesh Routers,
portable monitors (such as the ToxiRAE Pro, MultiRAE family,
etc.), and an EchoView Host, check that all units on the network
use the same PAN ID and Channel. Then follow this setup order:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Turn on the Mesh Routers.
Turn on the EchoView Host.
Turn on the monitors.
If any of the units do not automatically join the network,
check their network settings and perform a Join Network.

14 Appendix A: Mesh Router Installation
Two methods for mounting Mesh Router make it easy to install. The first
method uses a magnet that screw onto the rear of the Mesh Router,
making ideal for moving from one location to another. The second
method uses a specially designed stainless-steel enclosure that is
permanently mounted. It protects the Mesh Router from damage in
industrial settings.

This magnet is powerful enough to support the Mesh Router when it is
placed against a flat steel or iron surface.
Important! Keep the magnet away from computer hard drives. The
strong magnet can corrupt or erase data on these.

Mesh Router User’s Guide
Slip the screws through the two holes that are side by side in order to
mount the enclosure to a vertical pole. Otherwise slip the screws through
the two vertically aligned holes to attach the enclosure to a horizontal
pole.
Loosely assemble the clamp parts around the pole. Note that the screws
have nuts that fit into the clamp parts. The clamp parts are designed to
hole the nut so that you do not need to use a wrench. Hand-tighten the
parts until snug.
Tighten the hex screws from the front of the enclosure:
Once the clamp parts and the enclosure are securely held against the pole,
stop tightening.
Note: The pole must be between 25mm (1″) and 63mm (2.5″) in
diameter.

14.3 Magnetic Mount Alternative Installation
The magnet-mount disc can be attached to the steel enclosure instead of
the clamps. This approach provides the protection of the enclosure with
the ease of installation afforded by the magnetic mounting.
1. Insert screw through magnetic disc.
2. Place the magnetic disc over the bottom hole on the rear of the
enclosure.
3. Tighten the screw until the disc is snug.

15.1 External Battery Usage
An external battery unit, the provided by RAE PowerPak, is used to power a
Mesh Router in fixed installations or in situations where extended battery life
is necessary. The connector from the external battery screws into the Mesh
Router’s battery compartment. Bottom views of the Mesh Router in its steel
enclosure are shown in the procedure below.

4. Use the open hex end of the wrench, and with both pins mated
with the two holes on the power end, tighten by turning
clockwise until it is snug. Do not overtighten.
Consult the RAE PowerPak User’s Guide for further connection and charging
information.
The Mesh Router is permanently mounted to a solid surface by first
securing it in its steel enclosure (a screw through the back mates with the
Mesh Router) and then securing the enclosure to a solid surface such as a
wall or the metal mounting plate that holds both the Mesh Router and the
RAE PowerPak.
