The RAC80 Radio Alarm Contact detects the opening or closing of an electrical contact or of a door equipped with a magnet. This sends a radio warning to a Nurse Call unit. The RAC80 Radio Alarm Contact provides a magnetic reed contact for monitoring doors and windows. The internal reed contact is activated by an external magnet which can be placed in the position indicated.
The RAC80 can be powered either by a 3V battery or externally. It also has built-in terminal blocks for use as an input for monitoring an external alarm device.
RAC80 Radio Alarm Contact with magnet Features
For use as a transmitter for particular types of event, the alarm can be activated by approaching and/or moving away a magnet, or by the opening and/or closing of an electrical contact. In either case, the alarm is immediately transmitted to the Nurse Call system.
There is a reed contact on the right side of the device. The magnet assembly must be mounted within a certain distance of the device. When the distance between the magnet and the internal reed switch in the RAC80 Radio Alarm Contact then exceeds a pre-defined value, the radio alarm signal is sent to the Nurse Call system.
Use as a Universal Point Transceiver
For use as a universal point transceiver, an external device can be connected to the terminal block on the RAC80 Radio Alarm Contact. A closing or opening signal from the external device initiates a radio signal from the RAC80 Radio Alarm Contact to the Nurse Call system.
