The range of the MAD Monitor, in short, is, best in class. So, what does that mean to you? Well, if you happen to run your molding machines in an open field, or warehouse, you can literally go miles. In the real world though, we are in poured concrete buildings with cranes and chains hanging from the ceiling and racks filled from top to bottom with fashionably etched hunks of steel. That being said, in an industrial environment we can often get 250,000 sq. ft. done in a gateway and one repeater. We have done 1,000,000 sq. ft. with one gateway and six repeaters.

Even if it is not required to increase range we recommend having more than one gateway, in case of failure, if your installation is considered mission critical. Of course, if a gateway dies, the monitors will hold up to 94,000 cycle times while you get it replaced.

For more detailed information on this topic, or if you would like to test the range in your facility, this is explained in detail in the MAD Range Test Kit Manual available to all MAD staff members.
