WIRELESS RF MODULES FOR A
PORTABLE ALARM SYSTEM
Lemos is now offering the A40/Radiometrix which has up to a 40 node alarm system, offering alarm outputs
at each location for sounder and/or strobe lights. An
optional display indicates the location of any alarm
activation. With the display board, users are able to detect
if a battery is low on any unit in the system, as well as a
battery low indication on each node via an LED indicator
or sound indicator (via an optional low battery sounder
board). The whole system can be battery operated for six
months on an alkaline C cell pack.
The system is a mesh network, so nodes in radio
communication with other nodes allow the system to
cover a large area. Because the nodes may ‘hear’ more
than one other node, it allows for multi-path reception.
The standard radios can communicate over 2-3 km in a
four hop system (std 2sqkm other radios optional; country
Temporary fire alarm — This is ideal for building sites
or showground alarms, or anywhere a temporary alarm
system is required.
Multi-building alarms — The unit can be mains
powered and battery backed from an alarm system to
offer a permanent solution for multi-building alarm
Door alarms in buildings — Exit doors which need to
be alarmed can transmit back to a central display unit with
the door ‘number’ being displayed.
