    Appendix A: Dynamic Frequency Selection The following section details notes and questions concerning the 2.4 / 5.4 GHz MOTOMESH Duo and dynamic frequency selection in the presence or radar triggers and interference. First it is important to detail the auto channel selection feature and the specific behaviors with respect to radar and interference will be discussed.

  • Page 134

    Appendix A: DFS regulations, this node is required to listen passively for radar for 60 seconds after retuning to the channel before transmitting. After 60 seconds has expired with no radar present the transceiver resumes normal operation. Our recommended configuration is to select two to three channels in the preferred channel list based on a channel plan developed during the installation/field findings.

  • Page 135

    Appendix A: • When the scan concludes, the decision on how a channel is chosen is based on the strength and number of beacons on each channel. Also, non-overlapping channels are weighted as highly preferred channels. • This scan can occur through three different methods: Upon the Boot-up Through a manual channel rescan command via Wireless Manager Through a scheduled channel rescan command via Wireless Manager...
