The application features a single AlphaMax 82A along with a 20 feet Male DB25 to open-end cable. The AlphaMax 82A will be able to monitor up to 8 of your environmental and radio gear alarms (discretes) at your mobile sites and report those alarms via a POTS line as a text message to your pager or cell phone.
The AlphaMax 82A is not only one of our best selling smaller capacity network elements; it's also one of our least expensive. The AlphaMax 82 has a capacity of 8 discrete inputs, and 2 control outputs. The 8 discrete inputs allow you to monitor 8 different environmental conditions. Beyond just monitoring entry violations at your building, you will be able to monitor other alarm points such as commercial power, room temperature, etc. Anytime a fault alarm is detected, the AlphaMax 82A will be able to page you with a detailed description of the alarm.
The AlphaMax's built-in modem will not only dial to your pager directly to report a fault or alarm, but once alerted, you will be able to dial into the AlphaMax and control up to 2 different pieces of equipment i.e. back up generator, turning lights on, etc. There is an optional UPS for the AlphaMax 82 that will allow continuous alarm reporting for up to 2 hours after all power has failed.
Installing the AlphaMax 82A is easy and quick. It mounts nearly anywhere - on the wall or in an equipment rack or frame. Optional screw-lug or wire-wrap connection blocks make wiring up alarms simple and trouble-free. The AlphaMax 82A is available in AC power and the only network connection it needs is a phone line.
Configuring your AlphaMax 82A unit is even simpler. Just create a configuration file with the included Windows software and upload it to your AlphaMax 82A via modem. You can configure every AlphaMax in your network without leaving your desk.
