12V DC Outputs on the ERA-DCRX
Each of the four (4) zones on the ERA-DCRX receiver has a live 12V DC output.
These outputs enable you to connect an external device to the output to activate when that zone is triggered.
Examples of Using the 12V DC Output
For example, let's say you operated a loud workshop and when loud machinery is turned on, it's hard to hear the receiver. The live 12V DC outputs provide a couple of options.
One option is using a 12V DC LED Strobe Light and connect it to the output for a zone. When a visitor arrives and presses the compatible push button, the ERA-UTX, not only does the paired receiver(s) play the chosen chime sound, the bright strobe light will provide a good visual indicator.
Safeguard Supply provides packaged kits that come with a strobe light (4 colors to choose from) along with "bellwire" (a bundle of 18AWG wire), as well as the push button and receiver in the WDK-ERA-STROBE.
Another option would be to connect a loud 105 dB rated siren to the 12V DC output. When a visitor arrives, the chime plays, and the siren plays a very loud sound to alert you that a visitor has arrived.
Like the WDK-ERA-KIT, Safeguard Supply also has the WDK-ERA-KIT with options like a FIREBELL, SIREN, and Chrome Enclosed Buzzer to choose from.
Each zone has its own 12 V DC output. That means you can mix and match 12V accessories, like a different strobe color for each zone, to help you better determine which push button or magnetic entrance alert was triggered.
