The 11-85 range offers UHF and VHF low power paging transmitters with an in-built encoder. Buttons or serial commands initiate transmissions to provide numeric, alpha-numeric and tone-only POCSAG paging, enabling a user to call a pager (approximately 2,000,000 codes), append a priority level (1 to 4), and add a numeric or alpha-numeric message.
In addition to the front panel buttons, there are four discrete inputs with unique reprogrammed messages on low input transition. Messages can be transmitted more than once with programmable time between transmissions.
The 11-85 supports multiple message queuing, and will queue up to five 40-character messages, or as many smaller messages that will fit into the memory buffer (up to 12). Predefined action messages are limited to a maximum length of 40 characters which may be configured using the Salcom programming software. ASCII character commands provide control via the serial port.
‘Beep’ Indicator: Audible ‘beeps’ accompany each key-push and all successful transmissions. There are different beeps for an ‘out of lock’ transmission failure and a distinctive beep for low battery accompanies each transmission. Two beeps for a successful transmission, three for an ‘out of lock’ transmission failure and a dual high-low beep & flashing LED for a low battery (set to approx 6.5V).
Aerial: The 11-85 has a fixed external quarter wave helical aerial but in addition the 11-85-0150 VHF Model has a variant with internal aerial, the 11-85-1150.
Transmitters configured to send paging messages can be utilised in a wide variety of applications such as personal and commercial security, medical alert, paging in restaurants and bistros, and customer assistance in supermarkets or hardware stores.
The 11-85 can also be programmed to send control instructions to specialised paging receivers capable of controlling relays. Using this product combination the transmitter can be used for remote machinery control. The Salcom 12-88 and 12-84 are examples of relay output receivers.
Available as one, four and eight button units, four additional digital inputs are also available for use as required.
Note: The 11-85 should not be used for industrial machinery control where a fail-safe mode of operation is essential. Please contact Salcom for advice if this is a requirement.
