System Layouts

The DPX-M portable time delay controller is the heart of a clinical alarm enhancement and extension system. The unit is supplied with a plug in 24 volt wall transformer and a power failure alarm battery clip. It will accept input signals from our Model : MIC-M noise sensor or an auxiliary "normally open dry contact input"

Once the DPX-M receives an input, an adjustable (0 to 30 seconds) time delay period starts. If this delay period is exceeded the "Output" jack closes enabling control over an external system (e.g.. Nurse Call system). Also the "Remote" jack supplies 20 volts DC to power our Model : PZ-M remote buzzer.

The MIC-M is a noise "volume" sensing device. This means it must be mounted as close as possible to the source of the alarm signal, normally 1 to 2 inches. The sensitivity of the unit is set to a point that will turn on the red "Active" L.E.D. (normally 75-85% of max.). With a limited range setting external room noises will not be detected.

DPX-I Layout

The KIT-DPX-I system allows the addition of a  time delay to an existing direct connect setup. The adjustable time delay insures that only legitimate alarms are seen and heard. The constant alarming (Alarm Fatigue)  that is so common in many facilities is reduced dramatically.

The ANN-5 lamp panel provides a central audio-visual monitoring point for our corridor mounted PZ-M remote lamp-buzzers.
