Pro Control Pro.rfz Wireless Range Extender
The new Pro Control Pro.rfz wireless range extender makes it simple and cost effective to extend the ProLink.z processor’s 2.4-GHz ZigBee(R) wireless network to additional areas of a home or commercial facility. This provides users with powerful two-way control and feedback — including song metadata, volume levels, current temperature, and more — via their sleek and powerful Pro24.z remote.
Featuring a durable plastic enclosure, the Pro.rfz can be located up to 70 feet away from the ProLink.z processor. For increased reliability, multiple modules can be added to create a wireless 2.4-GHz ZigBee RF network that instantly adapts to changes or problems within the communication path for greater accuracy.
For installers, the range extender is easily configured via the Pro Control Studio software and a micro USB cable. Providing a clean and simple installation, the Pro.rfz features a detachable wall bracket and can be conveniently powered from any electrical outlet.

“At ISE this year, Pro Control will be showcasing a variety of powerful control solutions. Our flagship processor, the ProLink.z, and the award-winning Pro24.z touch-screen controller will be on display and demonstrating how they work together to take full command of electronic systems. We will also be showing for the first time our Pro.rfz wireless range extender — it’s a new solution that extends the ProLink.z’s 2.4-GHz ZigBee wireless network to additional areas of a home or commercial facility. Another highlight will be our ProPanel app for users looking to incorporate Apple devices into their control systems, while our iPro.8 companion remote — a dedicated remote to complement the Apple interface — will also be making its ISE debut. It’s shaping up to be another great show for Pro Control and we look forward to seeing everyone there.”
