Pyronix’s UR2-WE wireless expander now features dual-frequency, HUD/MED-WE compatibility and a fail-safe fault relay, enabling it to switch between wireless channels to avoid jamming, for up to 20 HUD devices to be added and for the control panel to be notified if the device experiences a power loss fault.
“We’re always looking at ways we can improve not only our latest solutions, but also our existing ones and we’re really pleased to deliver these new features to the UR2-WE,” Pyronix Marketing Director, Laurence Kenny, said.
The UR2-WE is a wireless expander that enables installers to add Pyronix two-way wireless devices to any brand of wired control panel with an arm/disarm output. This is ideal for retrofit or upselling to existing systems, where wireless expansion can be conveniently and efficiently added to cover extensions, outbuildings and more.
So, whether installing new or upgrading existing systems, the installer can use the UR2-WE to add up to 10 wireless sensors or 6 wireless keyfobs per channel*, for complete flexibility with all the great benefits of multi-award-winning Enforcer two-way wireless technology.
This now includes compatibility with the HUD/MED-WE**; should the UR2-WE receive a HUD activation, its alarm relay will open, while its seven segment display locally highlights the respective number of the activated input, to identify which HUD has been activated. Up to 20 HUD/MED-WE devices can be added and they can be learned to the same alarm relay as any Enforcer wireless device.
With the addition of dual frequency, if all the wireless devices learned onto the UR2-WE are working on wireless channel 1 and the UR2-WE detects a wireless jamming signal, it will switch all its devices over to wireless channel 2 to prevent the learned devices from being jammed and to maintain performance.
Meanwhile, by wiring its fail-safe fault relay to an input of the control panel, should the UR2-WE lose power, the fault relay will open and notify the control panel of the power loss fault, so that action can be taken and security maintained.
“The improvements we’ve made extend the capabilities to not only upsell or add HUD capabilities with the UR2, but also make it an even more secure and reliable expander for the installer,” Laurence concluded.
