SAR-12/24 Auxiliary Relay

The Alpha Communications┬« / Golmar SAR-12/24 Auxiliary Relay is used only with the GB2, Platea, Tekna and/or Szena series intercom and/or video-intercom systems. The SAR-12/24 is activated when the GB2, Platea, Tekna and/or Szena station is called from a door entry station, and provides a dry contact relay closure to activate an auxiliary signaling device.

All SAR-12/24 field connections are positive screw terminal type, and the SAR-12/24 is powered directly from the 12VDC to 18VDC provided at the apartment station, when called from an entry station.

Each GB2, Platea, Tekna and/or Szena series station that requires remote signaling requires a minimum of one (1) SAR-12/24 Auxiliary Relay.
