The Potter Amseco UD-1000 Digital Alarm Communicator Transmitter (DACT) provides for up to two (2) phone lines for communication to a monitoring station. The UD-1000 DACT communicates using the SIA-DCS or Ademco Contact ID protocols. When enabled, the DACT automatically monitors each phone line or voltage and has the ability to seize the line and connect with a remote receiver. Once the communication is complete, the DACT will hang up the phone line.
The DACT is provided with an RJ-11 jack for each phone line and a RJ-11 to RJ-33 cord. In order for the DACT to work properly, it must be installed on a plain old telephone service (POTS) or equivalent as deemed by the authority having jurisdiction. The DACT must be installed before any other equipment to ensure it can seize the line and disconnect any other lines.
Phone lines are high voltage and should be run in a separate conduit from other circuits. The wire conductors connecting the DACT to the phone system should be 26 AWG or larger.
