The RF loggers are battery operated instead of requiring AC power or Power Over Ethernet. This allows the devices to be placed in areas where obtaining a power source can be difficult. The RF logger is spec’d to a 1.5 battery capacity. You can create low-battery alarms on DicksonOne for RF devices so that you are alerted when the battery levels may be low.
