What’s your store size?*
Newton Gateways make “in the blink of an eye” a redundant concept. Three thousand tags can be updated within 5 minutes with a single Newton Gateway.
Getting the Green Light.
Newton Gateways are equipped with an LED signal system conveniently located on the Gateway face. The LED indicators are responsible for communicating the Gateway operational status, and each LED delivers a different message.
ON if Ethernet is connected. Gateway checks every 1 second whether Ethernet link is connected.
Blinks (1 sec duration) if the Server Interface layer is operational. Gateway checks the operation of the Server Interface layer.
Blinks (3 sec duration) if the RF Modem is operational. Gateway checks the operation of the RF Modem layer.
Blinks (1 sec duration) if the Server Interface layer is operational. Gateway checks the operation of the Server interface layer.
Blinks (wakeup order duration) if the RF Modem is operational. Gateway checks the operation of the RF Modem layer.
For optimum performance of the Newton System, there’s a simple way to calculate how many Gateways are needed depending on the store area.
*Overlap refers to the intersection between the coverage of multiple Gateways to ensure that all ESLs are covered.
Compared to Zigbee protocol which has about 11~16 available RF channel, Newton Protocol has about over 60 available RF channel which gives much easier CH setting environment.
Newton Auto Channel Section function gives a CH hopping capability when there is a collision between unexpected WIFI interference to make sure the CH for Newton Gateway is always on the clean/free CH.
