The Model DXS-32 Supervised Miniature Door/Window Transmitter is a battery powered stationary transmitter designed for use with Linear’s DXS and DX format receivers. This transmitter can be used in a variety of wireless remote control applications. Triggering the transmitter with its built-in magnetic switch sends a digitally coded wireless signal to its companion receiver.
The digital DXS code format features over a million possible codes. The DXS transmitters are precoded at the factory to unique codes, so no field coding is required. The DXS-32 can send four different codes: alarm, restore, low battery and status.
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. The magnet is adjustable with four height positions. A 1/4″ high magnet spacer is also supplied to snap on to the base of the magnet.
The transmitter is powered from two 3-Volt #2032 lithium batteries with an expected battery life of up to 4 years. Every hour, the DXS-32 will send a status transmission to the receiver. The hourly signal updates the receiver to the transmitter’s condition. By monitoring status transmissions, the receiver can determine if a transmitter has a low battery or has been removed from the system. DXS format receivers can monitor status signals, DX format receivers cannot.
Normally, the transmitter sends an exit/entry delay transmission code. Cutting an internal jumper selects an instant transmission code. Cutting this jumper doesn’t change the time of the actual transmissions, but changes the code of the signal sent so the receiver can determine the transmitter’s function.
