Global Caché Contact Closure Sensor
Trigger Macros With Any Off-The-Shelf Switches
The Global Caché GCSC1 is a contact closure sensor. It detects the open-and-closed status of a pair of isolated contacts, such as a relay or switch. It is ideally suited for detecting contact closure on drapery controllers, thermostats, security contacts, and door strikes.
The GCSC1 circuitry provides a rapid response to contact closures (4mS typ.) with a slow response to contact opens (75mS typ.). This eliminates false triggers due to contact bounce created by mechanical contacts coming together, such as push buttons or relays.
The GCSC1 plugs directly into the GC100 Network Adapter's IR/Sensor connector for proper operation. (The GC100 connector must be configured as an input.) The GCSC1 is connected directly across the contacts, with the open/close state to be determined. There is NO polarity to the wiring. The GCSC1 requires +5V (supplied by the GC100) to operate and provide a logic output representing the contact closure state. The GCSC1 has a standard 3.5 mm stereo jack.
