The DXR-702 is a two-channel digital receiver with two isolated relay outputs designed for use with Linear’s DX Format transmitters. This receiver can be used in a variety of remote control applications. When the receiver detects a signal from a transmitter programmed into its memory, the appropriate relay output activates. The relays have four optional output configurations. When the relays are set to latch, the receiver outputs will follow the open/close door status sent from DXT-31 door/window transmitters.
In a typical installation, the receiver is connected to an alarm control panel, door strike, camera, high current relay or some other devices. Transmitters are used to activate or control the devices. The receiver should be mounted with the supplied mounting bracket indoors or outdoors inside a weather resistant non-metallic housing.
The digital DX code format features over a million possible codes. The DX transmitters are precoded at the factory to unique codes, so no field coding is required. For versatility, any transmitter can be programmed into any receiver channel. Receivers must be programmed to the transmitter’s code before system testing and operation. Up to 32 transmitters maximum can be programmed into the receiver. The transmitters can be split in any number between the two receiver channels.
Receiver channel two is a special channel. If channel two memory is empty, with no transmitters programmed into it, it will report low battery signals from any channel one transmitters capable of sending them. When a low battery transmission is received, the channel two relay will latch, regardless of how the option jumpers are set. The relay will remain engaged until the channel two program button is pressed. The low transmitter batteries should be replaced before resetting the relay.
The unit can be powered from a 11-17 VDC or 12-16 VAC power source. The relays’ normally open and normally closed contacts can switch up to 1 amp at 24 volts AC/DC.
Cutting jumpers select how the relays activate. Four settings are possible. Both relays will function with the same option. The factory setting causes the relays to engage for four seconds each activation. Optionally, the relays can be set to engage for one second, toggle on with one activation then off with the next, or latch engaged for door status or until reset by pressing the program button.
A nine-inch wire whip antenna screws into the receiver’s antenna connector. Optionally, a remote antenna (Model EXA-1000) can be connected to the receiver for greater radio range. The red program indicator lights during RF reception. The installer can verify that signals are being sent from transmitters and diagnose interference problems by viewing the indicator. The indicator also lights during memory programming/erasing and flashes to count the number of transmitters in memory.
