Bluetooth and Zigbee are designed to meet specific requirements of low cost and low power wireless applications found in home automation, energy monitoring, health care instruments, HVAC and telecom services. Managing these networks will require you to stock up on a few accessories. Far too often, an installation grinds to a halt for the lack of a $10 part or the inability to connect one device to another. Fortunately, we have quality products from Antaira and Sena to cover your parts list. We offer adapters, cables, converters, gender changers, antennas, batteries and more. Our full selection of the little things will not only keep your network in top shape but will simplify your life and solve your connection problems, too.
Bluetooth and Zigbee Antenna Choices
Signal strength is nearly always a challenge, especially in large facilities. Here, concrete walls and obstacles contribute to signal interference.
Zigbee antennas and repeaters are specifically designed to boost your signal in these challenging environments. The Parani-DAT 3dBi gain dipole antenna, Parani-DAT5-R 5dBi gain dipole antenna, and Parani-PAT patch antenna are a few examples of compatible higher gain antennas. Don’t forget antenna patch cables like the Parani-SEC-R. In working with Bluetooth, be assured you will need antennas. Sena offers several choices from standard gain to high gain like the optional Parani-DAT which significantly extends range. Adaptable frequency ranges, gain, impedance, and polarization give you nearly limitless adaptability. You can boost Bluetooth range as much as tenfold in some cases.
Gender Changers, Converters, and Cables
So many devices, so many connectors. You need a source for converters and connection hardware. According to Murphy's Law, you will always be short an adapter when you need it most. You can prevent these situations by stocking up on these small but significant accessories. Gender changers and adapters like the FM9GD DB9F DB9F to DB9M and Parani-SLR are handy components for any network engineer’s toolbox. Along with gender changers, don’t forget DB9 serial to serial adapters and terminal blocks. Browse the supply and make sure you can make any and every connection exactly when you need it.
Alas, cabling is the bread and butter of all networking. Even when you are working with wireless, there are still cables to lay and manage. Whether you need an extension or a patch antenna, you can get what you want at bulk-friendly prices. Power, USB, and a host of other cable options are all available.
