The DX-COKIT Supervised Carbon Monoxide Detector Transmitter and Receiver Kit contains a single station DXS-80 carbon monoxide alarm with a built-in supervised transmitter and DXR-702 2-Channel Receiver. The kit is designed to provide wireless CO detection capability for ANY hardwired alarm control panel. The DXS-80 provides a warning to alert against both the acute and chronic effects of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. The receiver provides a Form “C” (normally open & normally closed) relay outputs for connection to an alarm control panel.
When carbon monoxide is detected, the DXS-80 sounds a loud local alarm. The built-in transmitter sends a digitally coded wireless signal to the DXR-702 receiver every 10 seconds until the air has cleared and the detector is restored. The CO alarm will activate the receiver Channel 1 relay.
No field coding is required because the DXS-80 is already factory programmed into the DXR-702 receiver. The DXR-702 receiver can be powered from a 11-17 VDC or 12-16 VAC power source. 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 DXS-80 is powered by one 3-volt lithium battery. The battery is supplied and can power the unit for up to the six year life of the detector. If the battery voltage drops below a preset level the alarm will sound a low battery chirp every 45 seconds and a low battery signal will be sent to the receiver, activating the receiver’s Channel 2 relay.
At about 6 years, the carbon monoxide detector element will reach the end of its serviceable life. The self-supervising detector will signal a permanent trouble condition, indicating time for replacement.
NOTE: The DX-COKIT is not for use in UL Listed applications.
