        Increase the range of any Crestron infiNET EX® device, including GL Power Packs, the CLC-1DIMFLV2EX-24V, CLCI devices and Cameo® keypads.

        The GLA-EXPEX is a two-way RF wireless expander designed to extend the range of Crestron lighting control products in an infiNET EX® network. The GLA-EXPEX is optimized for installation in building systems where a hard-wired expander is necessary. Suitable for installation in plenum airspace, the GLA-EXPEX is built with a metal enclosure that mounts directly to two adjacent four-inch square junction boxes. Additionally, the GLA-EXPEX accepts a range of line voltages from 100 to 277 Volts, which makes it easy to install in almost any location. Up to five GLA-EXPEX can be deployed in any infiNET EX network.

        infiNET EX

        Ultra-reliable infiNET EX wireless technology provides steadfast two-way RF communications throughout a residential or commercial structure without the need for physical control wiring. Employing a 2.4 GHz mesh network topology, each infiNET EX device functions as an expander, passing command signals through to every other infiNET EX device within range (approximately 150 feet or 46 meters indoors), ensuring that every command reaches its intended destination without disruption[1].

        The GLA-EXPEX communicates with a Crestron control system via an infiNET EX Wireless Gateway (model CEN-RFGW-EX, DIN-AP3MEX, or MC3[2]). Up to 100 infiNET EX devices may coexist on a single wireless network, and every device that is added to the network effectively increases the range and stability of the entire network by providing multiple redundant signal paths[1].

         
        Key Features
        • Wireless expander for infiNET EX® devices
        • Extends range up to 150 feet (46 meters) indoors
        • Hard wires to electrical box
        • Operates across 100 to 277 Volts AC
        • Auto-discovery for fast, easy setup
        • Suitable for installation in plenum airspace
        • Deploy up to 5 GLA-EXPEX in a single infiNET EX network
