What is the DS016?

The compact size of this docking station allows you to place the RX014 and its antenna at an optimal location for the cleanest RF signal.

The DS016 has a sophisticated communication system.  It sends data to a remote RX014 GUI through an Internet connection anywhere in the world using the TCP/IP protocol.

The DS016 can connect, as a client, to your host network either through a Wi-Fi connection or to a cabled Ethernet connection. Notice that the Ethernet and Wi-Fi can be active on your local network simultaneously. Click to see the client illustration full size
