Z-WAVE PLUS PAU Range Extender Repeater User Guide
The Range Extender Repeater is a Z-Wave™ enabled device (interoperable, two way RF mesh networking technology) and is fully compatible with any Z Wave™ enabled network. Every main powered Z-Wave enabled device acts as a signal repeater and multiple devices result in more possible transmission routes which helps eliminate “RF dead-sports” Z-Wave™ enabled devices displaying the ZWave™ logo can also be used with it regardless of the manufacturer, and ours can also be used in other manufacturer’s Z-Wave™ enabled networks.
The product supports Over The Air(OTA) feature for the products firmware upgrade.
Adding to Z-Wave™ Network
This product can be operated in any Z-Wave network with other Z-Wave certified devices from other manufacturers. All non-battery operated nodes within the network will act as repeaters regardless of vendor to increase reliability of the network.
The table below lists an operation summary of basic Z-Wave functions. Please refer to the instructions for your Z-WaveTM Certificated Primary Controller to access the Setup function, and to Add/Remove/associate devices
|No node ID||The Z-Wave Controller does not allocate a node ID to the Switch.||LED 2-second on, 2-second off (Blue LED)|
|Add (Inclusion)||Put your Z-Wave controller into inclusion mode by following the instructions provided by the controller manufacturer|
|Pressing Include button of PAU05 three times within 2 seconds will enter inclusion mode|
|Remove (Exclusion)||Put your Z-Wave controller into exclusion mode by following the instructions provided by the controller manufacturer|
|Pressing Include button of PAU05 three times within 2 seconds will enter exclusion mode.|
|Node ID has been excluded.||LED 2-second on, 2-second off (Blue LED)|
|Association||The PAU05 is an always listening Z-Wave device, so associations may be added or removed by a controller at any time. Or If your controller requires to have the PAU05 send a ‘node information frame’ or NIF for associations, then pressing the On/Off button three times within 2 seconds will cause the PAU05 to send its NIF.
Note: The device support 1 groups. The group 1 is for receiving the report message etc. A group one support 5 nodes maximum.
- dding a node ID allocated by Z-Wave Controller means inclusion. Removing a node ID allocated by Z-Wave Controller means exclusion.
- Failed or success in including/excluding the node ID can be viewed from the Z-Wave Controller.
To distinguish what mode the switch is in, view from the blue LED for identification.
|State Type||LED Indication|
|Normal||When the power is turned on, its LED is always on. (Blue LED)|
|No node ID||Under normal operation, when the Switch has not been allocated a node ID, the blue LED flashes on and off alternately at 2-second intervals. By pressing On/Off button, it will stop flashing temporarily.|
|Learning||When PAU05 is in learning mode, blue LED flashes on and off alternately and repeatedly at 2 second intervals.|
- Network health
Press the button once to enter the network health test. According to the test results, the LED light will flash three times. LED color meaning is as follows:
LED color Description Green Network health is good. Yellow Network health is acceptable but latency can be observed occasionally. Red Network health is insufficient because frames are dropped.
- Z-Wave’s Configuration
Configuration Parameter Function Size
Value Unit Default Description 1 LED mode (Blue LED) 1 0-1 0
- 0: LED on
- 1: LED off
- LED mode (Blue LED):
Whenever the AC power return from lost, PAU05 will restore the LED mode which could be LED off、LED on. The default setting is LED on.
- Firmware update over the air (OTA)
PAU05 is based on 500 series SoC and supports Firmware Update Command Class, it can receives the updated firmware image sent by controller via the Zwave RF media. It is a helpful and convenient way to improve some function if needed.
The Repeater supports Command Classes including…
|Command Class||Version||Required Security Class|
