Elk M1 Wireless Receiver for GE/Interlogix Crystal Transmitters
Compatible With 319.5Mhz Crystal Transmitters
The ELK-M1XRFEG is a Wireless (RF) Receiver and Input Expander for use with the Elk M1 and M1EZ8 home automation controllers. The receiver connects to the four (4) wire data (keypad) bus of the control and integrates in much the same way as a M1XIN hardware zone expander except that a single ELK-M1XRFEG can handle up to 144 wireless zones (e.g. transmitter sensors or points).
The ELK-M1XRFEG receiver uses Crystal frequency technology and is a dual antenna, phase diversity design capable of long range wireless coverage.
- Adds up to 144 individual wireless zones
- Operates from the 4 wire RS485 Data Bus
- Additional Receivers (up to 11) may be Connected to a single M1 or M1EZ8 Control for redundancy or greater coverage
- Flash Memory for Updating of operating Firmware
The design of the ELK-M1XRFEG receiver provides for all transmitter programming and enrollment data to be stored in the control panel, not in the ELK-M1XRFEG. The only data stored in the receiver is a pre-filter or list of "valid transmitters" that is automatically updated by the control each time the sensor enrollment mode is exited.
In regular operation the ELK-M1XRFEG is listening for sensor transmissions and passes data coming from "valid sensors" to the control for processing. The purpose of the pre-filter is to reduce the amount of unnecessary data bus traffic, particularly in locations where transmitters from an adjacent neighbor may be heard. The pre-filter is automatically disabled during setup and enrollment so that it will be possible for newly enrolled sensor transmissions to reach the control.
In the event a receiver ever needs to be replaced it should only be necessary to enroll the replacement receiver onto the data bus and then enter and exit the wireless setup programming. This would cause the pre-filter information to be updated and the new receiver to become operational. In the event that multiple ELK-M1XRFEG receivers are installed the storing of sensor data in the control makes it possible to use portable devices such as keyfobs without regard as to which receiver hears the transmission.
Note: The ELK-M1XRFEG is only compatible with the 319.5MHz Crystal based transmitters available from Interlogix (GE Security).
Elk M1 and M1EZ8 controls must be operating application firmware version 5.0.12 or higher in order to work with the ELK-M1XRFEG Receiver.
