Getting started with the Amatis Border Router (AMBR)

The Amatis Border Router (AMBR) is a wireless gateway device used to connect the wireless mesh network to the cloud. Once connected, AMBR assigns programming tasks to sensors, drivers, controllers, and switches during commissioning, and can be removed from the network once tasks are assigned. Or, if AMBR stays wirelessly connected in your building after programming, remote support and energy usage data are recorded so you can view them from your phone app or web browser.

All components must be installed correctly to ensure the overall accuracy of this kit.

Key features

Manages the creation of Amatis 6LoWireless mesh networks

  • AMBR connects Advanced Load Controllers, Smart Drivers, Sensor 1 and Switches to the cloud using secure IPV6 6LoWireless, uploading real-time data from your site to the Amatis Dashboard

Enables remote configuration

  • When connected to the Internet, the Amatis App easily commissions the AMBR and all devices on the mesh network

Can be removed from the network

  • Once programming tasks are assigned, the AMBR can be removed from a wireless mesh network, as devices are fault-tolerant

 

Prep

Before beginning installation, make sure the installation site has:

1. High-speed Internet connection, via WiFi or cellular, configured for DHCP

2. Ethernet and electrical outlets, within 200 feet of the AMBR.

Please note AMBR can also be configured to use a static IP address.

 

Installing AMBR

1. Ideal device placement is central to the mesh network for most ideal interaction range, and not inside of metal cabinets or behind metal barriers that restrict wireless signals. 

2. Provide network firewall requirements to your site's IT personnel to ensure AMBR is able to establish an Internet connection. 

3. Connect AMBR via CAT5 cable to your Ethernet port, and plug in your power supply into a wall socket.

4. Wait 1-2 minutes for the AMBR start-up light sequence to successfully complete

 

BACNet/IP Integration

  • AMBR can integrate with building management systems using BACnet/IP connection over ethernet/RJ45 to each AMBR site.
