Question:

It has come to my attention that the Linear DX Series transmitter and receivers have been discontinued. In the past I’ve used the DXR701 for remote electric strike release applications because the onboard relay could handle 1 amp, at 32 volts DC. I’ve looked all over and can’t find another receiver that can handle the power I need to switch through the relay to remotely release a strike. Do you know of any receivers that have an onboard relay that can handle that kind of power? I really don’t want to add an additional protection relay every time I need to remotely release a strike through a wireless receiver.

 

Answer:

The CM-RX-90 Advanced Single Relay Receiver from Camden will accommodate the input voltage and power you need for an electric strike remote release application. The RX-90 offers 3 operating modes including delayed, no delay and latched relay configurations. The RX-90 features a convenient terminal block, visual relay status, and you can have up to 40 transmitters. The transmitters are 915 MHz so the range is incredible, up to 300ft depending on building conditions. The Operating Voltage is 12/24V AC/DC with an internal relay rated for 3 amps @ 30 VDC that’s 2 more amps than the old Linear DX series.
