Expand your systems potential

Expand your security system with the 8 input expander. With a further 8 wired devices to both existing or new PCX control panels, you can seamlessly adapt your security system to suit your needs.

Robust polycarbonate end station

The lightweight and strong polycarbonate casing has tamper protection for that extra peace of mind that you are protected.

Wiring options

The PCX-RIX8 DEOL / Double Pole expander will accept either Double Pole wiring or Double End-of Line wiring for each of the 8 inputs.

Resistor values

For Double Pole wiring you will need to set the control panel in 4K7/2K2 mode (4K7 resistor for alarm and 2K2 resistor for tamper).

PSU options

The expander is suitable for use with an Intelligent Power Supply.

Compact design

Lightweight, streamlined polycarbonate casing makes the PCX-RIX8 input expansion module easy to fit alongside the existing system without taking up too much room.
