TandD

is a USB connected base station with battery powered repeater mode. The RTR-50 base station is connected directly to a PC through the integrated USB port.

The included software supports in-demand functions such as scheduled downloads, real-time monitoring and e-mail alarm notification. The RTR-50 features a repeater mode which is remarkable for a unit of its size and cost. It can be set by software to function as a daisy-chainable repeater that can render wireless range problems a thing of the past.

Compatible with all TandD RTR-5x Series Wireless Data Loggers, the RT-50 System starts with simple single base station/single logger installations. The versatility allows for "Multiple Logger Groups," "Multiple Relay Paths," "Addition of Relay Units to Increase Distance," and the "Addition of Intermediate Logger Groups."
