The VHF transmitter is connected to the home/business alarm panel, panic / medical pack or guard monitoring unit and communicates to your security control room to indicate the status of the system.

When an alarm activation occurs, the activation is transferred to the VHF transmitter via individual input triggers or a multi-data connection. This ensures easy connection to all types and manufacturers of alarm panels.

The alarm activation data is encrypted by the transmitter and sent via VHF frequency to the Decoder at your security control room.

Pathfinder technology coupled with the super fast coding ensures that the signal sent is delivered to the control room using the shortest possible route.

The VHF burglar alarm reporting transmitter is programmable to allow for flexible connection to a variety of alarm panels and reporting of 9 linked triggers. More importantly it reports power-up, battery low/restore, battery over-voltage and mains fail/restore information to ensure complete AC power and battery status management of the alarm system.

The coding format includes error detection to ensure accurate and valid reported signals.

A programmable auto-test timer may be set to report the status of the alarm system from 1 hour up to 10 days.

All transmissions are sent with random time differences to ensure maximum use of the airtime available. All 9 inputs memorized when triggered and sent in priority order to the monitoring station.

Inputs may be set for positive or negative active trigger status.

An optional dipole antenna is also available.

Installation

The VHF radio transmitter must be installed +-1m away from the panel and keypad wires as much as possible. Otherwise, the RF will interfere with the alarm panel.
The recommended cable to use for the radio is 0.5mm Cap-tire or Ripcord for power and normal multi-cord for triggers.
DO-NOT bend the aerial to fit the cupboard, for you will alter the frequency and battle with range.
The radio transmitter has 8 input triggers, multi-data connection (Contact ID) or serial input, to be used for alarm panels.
Input triggers are positive trip, by default, but can be preprogramed to be negative trip.

Using the 8 input triggers
Connecting to a positive trip from the alarm panel, electric fence, Water level etc.

Using the contact ID trigger
Connect the panels ring and tip to the radio’s battery – and trigger 7
On older radios, connect ring and tip to the radio’s trigger 6 & 7
Program the panels phone no 1 (22) or (55). The account number must be any 4-digit number e.g. 1234, and the communication format as (Contact ID). The rest of the triggers can still be used for electric fence, water levels etc.

The correct way to install a radio transmitter
Measure the length of the aerial, and make sure not to bent it.
Connect the cable correctly and run the cable down, for the exact same length as the aerial.
Make a 90’ turn to the left or right and connect it to the panel.
You have just created a dipole antenna with the aerial running up and the cable running down.
