Call-Point Transmitters - UHF

12-86-9000

Ideally suited to a variety of Reception area, retail assistance and control applications, the 12-86-9000  is a small, high specification, POCSAG Call-Point paging transmitter utilising the 12-86-5000 paging transmitter printed circuit board. It subsequently inherits all the type approvals of the 12-86 family. It is capable of transmitting text messages directly to pocket pagers, audible or visual alarms or to LCD screens.

The 12-86 range of products can send text messages directly to paging receivers, providing simpler, lower cost systems since intermediate receivers and transmitters are not required for short range applications.

Using an appropriate receiver, the 12-86-9000, can also be used for a general remote control applications such as turning on lights, disabling alarms etc.

Powered by a standard CR2032 coin cell, the transmitter will operate for more than one thousand transmissions under normal conditions before the battery needs to be replaced.

12-86 transmitters support up to five inputs, each of which can be programmed with up to a thirty five character message. The units can be programmed with a serial programming cable (purchased separately) or they can be supplied pre-programmed.

Although the 12-86 is a low power transmitter, when used as a call-point paging transmitter a direct line of sight range of up to eight hundred metres can be expected. When used within buildings the range will be reduced depending upon the building, but it will still be significant.

The 12-86-9000 fits the form factor of many standard electrical face plates so that it can remain in keeping with the surrounding switch gear in cosmetically sensitive areas.

By default the 12-86-9000 is supplied with a mounting block, but it can be flush mounted in the same manner as most electrical switch plates if required.
