How can a transmitter be a controller?

Radio control

ProLine 2: the bidirectional radio system

Roller shutter and sun protection systems can now be controlled even more reliably, efficiently and transparently by radio - thanks to the ProLine 2 control series. In the new, bidirectional radio system, the transceivers (combination of transmitter and receiver, a combination of the English transmitter and receiver) cannot transmit signals only receive, but also pass on yourself. This has two decisive advantages compared to the previous, unidirectional radio standard:

1. Direct feedback for the user

In the bidirectional radio system, the hand-held transmitter receives feedback from the receiver on the status of the signal processing. With the hand-held transmitters, it is sufficient to look at the LED lights, which light up green when commands have been successfully executed.

2. Greater reliability and efficiency

Another big advantage of the elero bidi radio is the routing function - i.e. the radio signal's automatic search for an alternative route if the direct connection is disturbed. With the routing function, the signal automatically searches for the best alternative route to the transceiver on the drive via intermediate stations. Because every network-operated transceiver in the system is also a transmitter and can transmit the received radio signal itself - a maximum of 5 so-called "hops" are possible in this way, that is, 5 steps for forwarding from transceiver to transceiver

In order for the system to develop its full potential, all components must be bidirectional. elero is doing everything possible to be able to offer all devices bidirectionally as soon as possible.

The bidirectional devices that are already available are downward compatible with all previous ProLine products and can be easily integrated into existing systems.
