The Model DXT-31 Door/Window Transmitter is a battery powered stationary transmitter designed for use with Linear’s DX Format receivers. This transmitter can be used in a limitless number of wireless remote control applications. Triggering the transmitter with its built-in magnetic switch, an external switch or an external glass break detector sends a digitally coded wireless signal to its companion receiver. Pressing the transmitter’s case sends a test transmission.
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. The DXT-31 can send three different codes: alarm, restore and low battery.
In a typical installation, the magnet is mounted on a door or window and the transmitter is mounted on the frame. When the magnet moves more than 1/2″ away from the transmitter, an alarm signal is sent. When the magnet returns next to the unit, a restore signal is sent. Alarms and restores can also be sent from external contacts wired to the terminal block. Pressing the case sends a test transmission that indicates the current state of the contacts.
The transmitter is powered from two 3-Volt #2032 lithium batteries with an expected battery life of up to 3 years. The red test/operate indicator lights during operation and test. It will blink during operation and test when the batteries are low.
A three-position terminal block is for connection to normally closed external contacts or a normally open Window Bug type glass break sensor. An internal jumper selects which input to use. Selections are: internal switch only, external switch only, both external and internal switch, and glass break sensor.
A snap-on transmitter mounting plate is provided for easy installation. The magnet has four height positions. An additional snap-on magnet spacer is provided for a total of eight magnet positions.
