Please refer to the 'Specification & Manual' tab where you can download all standard drawings and up to date manuals What exactly is the TR1 Relay option for?
The TR1 timer relay board is required for any system that will be connected to a 24v dc lock release or 24v dc magnetic lock. The relay also allows for a 'timed' exit button facility which is required with any magnetic lock installationWhat exactly is the PS5 power supply option for?
It is required if you wish to add any additional items to the system such as extra monitors, door panels or 24v dc lock release or 24v dc magnetic locking devices. The standard supplied PS4 power supply is not powerful enough to facilitate any other additional itemCan I add extra handsets or other items?
Yes you can. If you require to add additional items such as audio handsets or any other extra items we offer for this system, you can purchase them via the Accessories section here AccessoriesWhat are the cable requirements?
There are two methods of cable installation. Old style 'Loop in/out' (Daisy chain format) or standard 'Star Topology' (All cables run to a central point) The latter requires a DBC4A1 4 way distributor for every 4 x audio handset which can be ordered via the Accessories section here Accessories
The DBC4S 4 way distributor is also required if additional door panels are installed
The Prestige video/audio door entry system can operate on CAT5/e, alarm or telephone cable but for best results you should use 1.0mm-1.5mm stranded twisted pair cable, especially if you have a rather long cable run. Whatever cable type you choose, it MUST be non-shielded and twisted pairedHow many door panels and/or handsets can I have?
You can have a total of 4 x door panels and up to 4 x handsets for each system but you will require a DBC4A1 4 way distributor for the door panels in addition to the larger PS5 power supply. Whilst the DBC4A1 is a universal unit, you cannot have for example, 2 x handsets and 2 x door panels connected to the same DBC4A1 unit Rule of thumb is:
1 x DBC4A1 for multi door panels and 1 x DBC4A1 for 4 x audio handsets (If the audio handsets are cabled in the Star Topology format)What type of lock release can I use?
The audio entry system can support any type of locking device you choose, however, this might require additional items to be purchased over and above the standard systems' basic specification. If you require specific lock device requirements, then do please email us if you are unsure12v dc Lock release
The door panel will support any standard 12v dc 'power to un-lock' lock release that must be rated at no more than 350ma
If the lock release is rated at more than 350ma then you might require an additional power supply such as our PSB 1amp 12v dc power supply24v Lock release or 12v - 24v dc Magnetic lock
If you require to use the system with a 24v dc lock release or 12v - 24v dc magnetic lock then you will require the upgraded PS5 4.5amp power supply and also the TR1 relay which can be ordered by using the 'Option' check box above or at a later date via the Accessories section here AccessoriesElectric or automated gate
If you require to use the system with an electric or automated gate that requires a typical Normally Open trigger, Please refer to the 'Specification & Manual' tab where you can download the required drawing
