Application Drawings

Alarm Point Duplicator application drawing
The Alarm Point Duplicator takes alarms from up to 32 devices and duplicates the alarms into two sets of 32 to be sent to separate alarm monitoring systems. This is useful if you have two existing monitoring systems that you need to support in parallel. You can send each alarm input into two systems using the two associated relays. The alarm is effectively duplicated.
