Can I connect a RBK20W to a RBR50 Orbi mesh network

I have a RBR50 Orbi mesh network in my home.  (1 Router, 2 Satellites)  Works Great!

 

I need to expand the coverage of my Wifi signal.   Can I connect a RBK20W (Router & Satellite) to my existing mesh network to expand my WiFi coverage?

That does not resolve my problem on how to connect the two systems

The RBW should work with the ORbi system. Though you may see troubles getting it to connect if the FW on the RBW is out of date or several version behind whats loaded on your system currently.

What is the distance between the router and satellite(s)? 30 feet or more is recommended in between RBR and RBS to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.
