The IMS-4850 Dry Contact Bridge allows you to connect a dry contact alarm from any device to your IMS. The Dry Contact Bridge is compatible with Normally Open and Normally Closed contacts. The electrical connection between the sensor and IMS is made via RJ-45 patch cable (not included). The sensor may be mounted either on a wall or rest on the floor.
The Dry Contact Bridge connects to the IMS via a RJ-45 cable (e.g. CAT5 cable). The connection from the sensor to the Host or Node can utilize your existing network wiring infrastructure. For example, the sensor may be installed in another room or another floor. Connect the bridge to your structured wiring network via a RJ-45 jack. At the other end, connect a patch cable from your structured wiring patch panel directly to the Host or Node environmental input.
- Connect your IMS system to any third party Normally dry contact type sensor or equipment
- Ideal for connecting to UPS systems or equipment that has a bulit in alarm. The Sensaphone system can remotely provide notification if it goes into alarm.
