EnGenius DuraFon Applications

DuraFon Applications

DuraFon Applications

EnGenius DuraFons Long Range Cordless Phones are used anywhere that requires multiple handsets using shared lines, handset-to-handset operations or longer base-to-handset range than is possible with other cordless phones.

Some of our Canadian DuraFon customer applications. These are just a few examples to illustrate the flexibility and diversity of DuraFon installations.

  • Cottage phone: Fraser Lake, BBC – Located in a cottage about 1 KM across a lake, the DuraFon Base Unit is connected to the phone line in a house on the serviced side of the lake, while the handsets are located in and around the cottage on the far side of the lake. This arrangement is unique in that no external antenna is required. The Base unit is mounted in a weather-proof box mounted on the side of the house. Works great!
  • Motel in La Crete, Alberta – Handsets used by staff at the main desk as well as servicing the rooms.
  • Berry Farm and Winery in Langly, BC
  • RV Resort in Victoria, BC
  • Seed and Grains farm in Halkirk, Alberta
  • Express and Taxi Services in Providence, NWT
  • Greenhouses in Morinville, Alberta
  • Hotel in Vancouver, BC
  • Resort in Mara, BC
  • RCMP Division in Nunavut
  • Ronald McDonald House, Calgary, Alberta
  • Seniors Centre in Victoria, BC – this installation uses two linked DuraFon 1X bases to distribute signal throughout a “T”-shaped facility
  • Ski Resort in Kananaskis, Alberta
  • Alpine Resort in Kimberly, BC
  • Housing Association in Paulatuk, NWT
  • Guest Ranch in Clinton, BC
  • Building Materials company in Calgary, Alberta
  • Hotel and Inn in Whitehorse, YK
  • Taxi company in Churchill, MB

Here is how EnGenius DuraFon products achieve such great range:

900 MHz frequency

  • 900MHz is less used, penetrates objects better, and simply goes further than higher frequencies used by DECT and WiFi technologies (1.9GHz, 2.4GHz, and 5GHz)
  • Using the 900MHz ISM band (902-928MHz FHSS) no licensing is required
  • Lower frequencies are less prone to multipath interference (reflected signals that cancel or degrade the primary signal)

High power

  • RF power for both base and handset is approx. 708mW or 28.5dbm. Again much higher than other technology phones

External and high gain antennas

  • 2dbi end-fed dipole or optional 6dbi external antenna for the base station
  • The external antenna not only has more gain but can be mounted in more ideal locations for maximum range including outdoors. An optional antenna splitter allows use of up to two antennas for one base station

A built-in RSSI signal measurement tool

  • This allows you an easy way to conduct your own range testing and site surveys
  • Available on DuraFon v2 DuraFons

No sharing of bandwidth, QoS, or security concerns as with VoWiFi phones

  • No need to upgrade or redesign an existing WiFi deployment to support voice

EnGenius DuraFon and Freestyl1 Long Range Cordless Phones

DuraFon Banner

DuraFon 1X and DuraFon Pro

The EnGenius DuraFon Long Range Cordless Phones are designed specifically for rugged applications such as farms, ranches, green houses, marinas, RV parks and campgrounds, resorts and condos and other similar environments. The DuraFon is available in a 1-line system expandable up to 8 handsets, and a DuraFon Pro 4-line version expandable to 32 handsets on a single base.

Range ratings are up to 3000 acres in an open environment, up to 250,000 sq. feet in a warehouse, and up to 12 stories in buildings. Typically this translates to 1 – 2 Km or more in an outside situation, depending on terrain and obstacles.

FreeStyl1 Long Range Cordless Phone

The new EnGenius FreeStyl1 is for moderately long range applications such as large estates and acreages.

The FreeStyl1 is a single-line system expandable up to 9 handsets, and covers up to 25,000 square feet (in-building), 10 acres open space and 6 floors of penetration. This translates into a range of about 800 metres depending on terrain and obstacles.

If you already have an EnGenius system and need replacement batteries or accessories such as antennas, call us. We can supply them.

EnGenius DuraFon 1X – FAX Machine Connection

DuraFon 1X

EnGenius DuraFon 1X

The EnGenius DuraFon 1 X is a single line cordless phone capable of ranges of 2 or more kilometers, and expandable up to 8 handsets.  Small office users may want to install a FAX machine on the same line, especially in remote areas where lines are at a premium. Connecting a FAX machine on the same line as the DuraFon, either via a splitter or on a separate wall jack on the same line, can spell problems with the DuraFon 1X, necessitating a system reset.

A solution is available via the RJ11 Answering Machine port on the bottom of the DuraFon 1X base.  The FAX machine telephone cord may be connected to this port and programmed to engage after a preset number of rings.

DuraFon 1X Base

Answering Machine Port

Some users also use a “Smart Line” to distinguish voice call vs Fax incoming on the same line.

An added feature of this port is that it can also be used to connect a regular analogue phone which can be used for both incoming and outgoing calls when the DuraFon handset is not available (and not in use).

Note that this does not apply to a DuraFon 4X or DuraFon Pro 4-line system.  These systems do not support a separate “Answering Machine” port.
