LGRU16 & LGRU16ELR
Relay Units 16 Alarms
& 16 tampers

The LGRU16 & LGRU16ELR control interface relay units provide physical alarm and tamper outputs for DVR and Alarm systems.

Between one and four LGRU16 relay units can be connected with a single masthead receiver to provide the maximum of 64 alarm and 64 tamper contacts.

The LGRU16 is supplied with one LGRM8 relay module which provides 8 alarm and 8 tamper relay contacts that can be interfaced to virtually any alarm system. A further LGRM8 module can be added to increase it to 16 alarm and 16 tamper outputs.

The LGRU16ELR version has screw terminals and End Of Line Resistors built in. The resistor values are plug-in modules and may be changed according to the alarm type (see list). On the front panel, a display shows information on alarms faults and tampers, which are held in the log. The PIR’s call in periodically and are monitored individually. If they fail to call in, an alert is raised. An additional RS232 output enables a PC to be connected and the FREE MH Manager software can be used to analyse the wireless system.

LGDM16
Plug & Play interface to DM's Ds2 DVR

This alternative to the LGRU16 unit provides a direct Plug & Play interface to a Dedicated Micros DS2 DVR without the need for RAM modules.

A Masthead receiver receives the data from the PIR detectors and passes it to the LGDM16 control unit in the form of RS232 text messages. The LGDM16 then converts the data into the Dedicated Micros protocol on RS485 to provide 16 alarm and 16 tamper outputs. Between one and four LGDM16 interface units can be connected with a single masthead receiver to provide up to 64 alarm and 64 tamper commands that can be interfaced to a DS2. On the front panel, a display shows information on alarms, faults and tampers which are held in a log. The PIR's call in periodically and are monitored individually. If they fail to call in, a tamper will occur. An additional RS232 text output provides alarm and other information that can be inserted on a video picture for remote viewing.

PRODUCT REVIEW

Independently Tested by Benchmark

Independently Tested by BENCHMARK.
Rated 80% - 'Recommended'

"When all is said and done, the LGRU16 is a simple product, and its sole purpose is to ensure that a network of Genesis wireless detectors can present physical alarm and tamper outputs for connectivity with DVRs and alarm systems. As such, it isn't going to impact on anyone who is not using a Genesis-based solution.

That said, it does create a nice clean interface for what is a very good and simple-to-install detection system. Although the actual detectors weren't considered as a part of the test, the units are efficient, reliable and very suited to their role.

For many installers, the LGRU16 ensures that using the detectors is a trouble-free and simple task. For that, it's hard to dislike the relay unit!"
