The E-opto16 can be connected to any of the 4 RJ-45 expansion ports located on the front panel of the securityProbe 5E base unit using standard CAT5 LAN cable.
The E-opto16 may also be daisychained using the E-Out / E-In ports on other expansion boards.
A wide variety of equipment that generates an output signal or voltage can be connected to each of the 2 wire dry contact inputs located on the back of the E-opto16 module. The (16) dry contact input LED status is displayed on the front panel.
The E-modules can be extended up to 300 meters from the securityProbe 5E base unit. There is no limit to how many E-modules can be connected to a single securityProbe 5E. It depends only on the number of sensors connected. A maximum of 500 data points can be monitored by the securityProbe 5E base unit.
A typical application for the E-opto16 would be to connect the outputs of an alarm panel to each of the 16 dry contact inputs allowing the securityProbe 5E’s full-featured built-in notification system to be integrated into these alarm panels, or other systems that output a voltage.
The 300-meter maximum run length is not the total run length of all of the E-Boards combined. This is each E-Boards maximum run length from either the base unit or from each other.
