The 12-86-0000 is an extremely small, low cost keyring or pendant POCSAG paging transmitter, available with 1-5 buttons as required. Powered by a standard CR2032 coin cell.
It is small, comfortable and discreet and can be hand-held, kept on a key ring, held in the pocket or worn on a lanyard around the neck.
The 12-86 range of products are POCSAG direct to pager transmitters, allowing low cost systems to be developed since intermediate receivers and transmitters are not required for short range applications.
12-86 transmitters support up to 5 inputs, each of which can be programmed with up to a 35-character message. Programming can be either with a serial programming cable that can be purchased separately or pre-programmed when supplied. Once operating frequency has been set the 12-86-0000 messages can be changed using programming software with an optional programming lead.
Although the 12-86 is a low power transmitter, a direct line of sight transmission range of up to 200 metres can be expected. Transmit range within buildings is reduced, but still considerable having proven to be effective in some cases between floors and across buildings.
The transmitter is available in a black case.
