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.
