How to connect a wired detector or device to MultiTransmitter

Updated

MultiTransmitter can be used to connect panic and medical alarm buttons, indoor and outdoor motion detectors, and opening, vibration, breaking, fire, gas, leakage detectors, etc.

Both pulse and bistable detectors and devices can be connected to MultiTransmitter. The integration module supports 4 types of connection:

Designation Type
NO Normally open
NC Normally closed, without resistors
EOL (NC with resistors) Normally closed, with resistors
EOL (NO with resistors) Normally open, with resistors

A detector or device that requires 12 V to operate can be powered from MultiTransmitter. A dedicated supply line is provided for fire detectors.

General Guidelines

  • When connecting third-party detectors and devices, do not twist the wires together, but solder them. The wire ends of the devices or detectors, which will be inserted into the integration module terminals, should be tinned or crimped with a special sleeve.
  • MultiTransmitter has 18 wired zones. We recommend that one zone be used to connect only one detector or device. If you wish to connect more devices, make sure you take into account their power consumption. The total maximum current consumption of all connected devices or detectors should not exceed 1 A.

    Do not connect the external detector power supply to the detector power terminals, as this may damage the device.

  • Keep in mind that the connection diagrams for different devices may vary. Please refer to the user manual of the connected device for its connection diagram.
  • Make sure to test the detectors and devices after you have connected them.
