Status Reporting for DXS-LR Series Transmitters


The status reporting option is described in the DXS-LR Series Operating Instructions which are shipped with each unit, which includes the illustration below. When status reporting is enabled, the transmitter broadcasts a signal periodically (approx. every 2 hours). The system can then make use of zone supervision, as described in the PERS Console Installation & Programming Instructions (Links to reference manuals provided below.)

How is status reporting enabled?

For DXS-LR series transmitters built prior to August 2013, status reporting is permanently enabled by pressing the transmitter button five times in succession within 3 to 4 seconds.

For DXS-LR series transmitters built in August 2013 and later, status reporting is permanently enabled with the first activation (button press).
