Wireless control

Dry contact input interface

The Gentec Contact Input Interface offers four inputs to interface with third-party devices and control systems. Each input has two terminals (+5 V, Input) for interfacing with almost any equipment creating a hybrid control solution.

When the two terminals are bridged through an external dry contact, the input triggers transmission of a telegram based on standard profiles (EEP).

Supported EEP’s include:

  • Key card Activated Switch
  • Rocker Switch
  • Occupancy Sensor
  • Window/Door Contact

Each channel can then be linked to the same or different receivers so when the input is activated, a wireless telegram is sent representing the input’s state.

The Contact Input Interface is the easiest method of integrating wireless devices into existing panels, wired control systems, or energy management systems.

Panic scenarios that may include a lock-down, fire alarm or security breach can now access the distributed lighting controls and force lights on. Integrate the interface with existing control systems to deliver time-of-day scheduled events to the wireless controllers allowing you to stay with a single
front-end solution.

  • Four input channels
  • Each channel operates separately sending switch or sensor commands to Gentec controllers
  • Low voltage interface to fire alarm, security, lighting, or control panels
  • Easy integration into any Energy Management system
  • Doubles as a repeater
  • Panel or DIN rail mount for tidy mounting applications
  • LED interface for channel status indication
  • Pluggable terminal strips
  • Supports key card switch, rocker switch, occupancy sensor and window switch profiles
