        Universal Wireless Gateway - ER, SG, and infiNET EX® Wireless

        Universal wireless gateway for SG (Sub GHz), infiNET EX® wireless, and Extended Range (ER) wireless devices.

        The CEN-GW1 is a universal wireless gateway that communicates with Crestron® SG (Sub GHz) wireless, infiNET EX® wireless, and ER (Extended Range RF) wireless devices. A single CEN-GW1 gateway creates a wireless network of Crestron remotes, keypads, lighting dimmers, motorized shades, thermostats, door locks, and other devices to communicate with a Crestron control system.

        Universal Wireless Gateway
        The universal wireless gateway features 2‑way wireless communication between the gateway and wireless devices. The CEN-GW1 can manage SG wireless, infiNET EX® wireless, and ER (Extended Range RF) devices simultaneously, eliminating the need for separate gateways.

        Easy Setup
        Dynamic discovery makes it easy to locate and acquire each wireless device.

        Power over Ethernet for Simple Installation
        Using PoE technology, a single cable run is used for both power and data for the CEN-GW1.

        Power an entire network of Crestron PoE devices using a Crestron PoE switch (CEN‑SW‑POE‑5 or CEN‑SWPOE‑16) or a single device using a PoE Injector (PWE‑4803RU). All PoE injectors and switches are sold separately.

        As an alternative to PoE, use a 24 VDC power pack (PW‑2407WU, sold separately) to power the CEN-GW1.

        Integrator Friendly Enclosure
        Mount the CEN-GW1 almost anywhere using the Integrator Friendly Enclosure (IFE). The IFE can be mounted to any flat surface, snapped onto a standard DIN rail, or stacked

         
        Key Features
        • Universal wireless gateway adds the SG (Sub GHz) wireless network to the proven performance of the infiNET EX mesh network and Extended Range ER wireless network
        • Supports Crestron battery-powered shades
        • Dynamic discovery for fast, easy setup
        • Wi‑Fi® friendly channel selection for trouble‑free operation
        • Built-in energy scan tool to help select wireless channel
        • Extend infiNET EX wireless coverage with infiNET EX expanders2
        • Extend ER wireless coverage with the built-in ER device roaming capabilities
        • Mount the antennas remotely using the ANT-EXT-10 (one required for each antenna, sold separately)
        • Power using PoE or 24VDC power pack
        • Integrator Friendly Enclosure (IFE) can be mounted to a flat surface, a DIN rail, or stacked on other IFE compliant devices; rack and pole mount options are also available (sold separately) ​
        1. The CEN-GW1 is not compatible with MTX‑3, TPS‑6X, or UFO‑WPR‑3ER model remotes.
        2. Battery‑powered infiNET EX devices do not provide expander functionality and may have reduced RF range capabilities. Consult the specifications for each network device to confirm its actual wireless capabilities. Use infiNET EX expanders (CLW‑EXPEX, sold separately) to fill gaps in coverage and extend the wireless range of the infiNET EX network. infiNET EX expanders are only for infiNET EX networks and offer no benefit to the performance of ER and SG devices. A maximum of five infiNET EX expanders may be deployed on an infiNET EX network.
        3. Up to six MLX‑3 remotes can be used.
