The repeater extends the effective range of your MAD monitoring network. When a MAD Monitor is too far away from a MAD Gateway to successfully transmit a message, a repeater can be installed between the monitor and the gateway. This repeater will receive the message from the monitor and then repeat it in an attempt to get it to the gateway from its location. Repeaters can piggy back to allow for very extended ranges (i.e. Monitor to repeater to repeater to repeater to gateway).
