RE524X mounting location?

I’m considering ordering a RE524X repeater to prevent the off-lining of some of my sensors. Two questions…

  1. Is the RE524X in stock?

  2. The installation manual states: “Mount the translator at least 5 feet from the Control Panel’s receiver.” Is there a recommended max distance from the panel?

Surety appears to have it in stock here

I also couldn’t find anything about the max range. I’d follow the instructions in the manual and make sure the unit has a strong signal before permanently mounting it.

Max distance is going to differ based on your location, layout, and construction/materials. A couple hundred feet will typically be a reasonable maximum.

Placement should roughly split the difference between the sensors and the panel.
