Detective Net is a wireless module that can replace interconnecting cable for Detective and Detective+. Detective Net will transmit gas alert signals and other alarms wirelessly between Detective units using a 433MHz signal up to 100 metres in distance. Detective Net uses the proven RICOCHET mesh network. When establishing a mesh network, Detective Net automatically selects the best line to give strongest interconnections. Should wireless connection between two devices weaken, the network will ‘self-heal’ and automatically re-route communications via alternate RICOCHET enabled devices, creating a mesh type network that provides a more robust and efficient wireless network.
When Detective+ goes into alarm, the signal will be sent to other units alerting the user to gas being present in the area. Detective Net will also transmit other faults, including loss of signal and battery low alarm. If the signal is weak due to heavy metal work being present the Detective Net can be used as a repeater to boost the signal between units. In a confined space the unit can use up to 20 metres of cable to position the unit in a position that will increase signal.
