System Power, Cable Type & Connectors 

All devices require a minimum of 12 volts DC to operate correctly. It can operate between 12 and 18 volts with some devices OK to 30 volts.

 

It is recommended that a 24 volt 6 amp DC power supply with a DC/DC Converter adjusted to 15 to 16 volts with a 24 volt 7 ampere hour battery back up is used at each VIA location. Where 5400 displays are used it is recommended that they are run directly off the 24 volt supply.

 

The recommended cable for the whole system is 14/020 white security cable with 6 cores. Green used for the A side of the bus and yellow for the B side with red for positive and black for ground. This leaves a spare pair in case of installation damage.

 

It is recommended to run separate power cable to the 5400 corridor displays as in the event of cable damage the 24 volt DC shorted to the data pair could damage the other units in the system.

 

CareTech products meet all of the requirements of the relevant Australian Standards and have been issued with C-Tick and N-Tick N10437.
