The TMD-560 PG2 is a wireless PowerG detector used with the PowerMaster alarm
system. The detector is designed to update the alarm system control panel upon any
change of temperature. The control panel then generates an alarm message when the
temperature has reached a certain temperature point. A restore message is generated
when it crosses back the threshold temperature point. There are a number of selectable
fixed temperature points at the control panel and the user can enable one or more
temperature point. The TMD-560 PG2 can be used in instances where temperature
detection is critical.
Other examples of detector usage are as follows:
Activating and deactivating pipe heaters at locations where low temperatures may
cause the water in pipes to freeze.
Warn of possible electrical device malfunction due to high or low temperature levels.
Alerting elderly people of a significant rise or drop in room temperature.
The TMD-560 PG2 detects both indoor and outdoor temperatures. The detector monitors room temperature using an internal sensor. For outdooror refrigerator installations, a waterproof temperature probe (optional) is used.
When the probe is connected, the temperature measurement is performed only by the probe sensor. When the probe is not connected and its terminals are shorted, the temperature measurement is performed only by the detector's internal sensor.
Once the predefined temperature is reached, the alarm system control panel sends a notification to the central station or uses the PGM/X-10 controls to switch on a connected appliance, for example, a heater or air conditioner.
Note: When using the temperature probe to monitor refrigerator temperature, the temperature probe is installed inside the refrigerator, while the detector is installed on the wall or ceiling. For outdoor installations, the temperature probe is installed outdoors, while the detector is installed indoors.
Based on the unique PowerG technology, the TMD-560 PG2 includes a "smart" anti- collision transmission sequence mechanism that prevents collisions with transmitted messages from other PowerG devices.
For further reliability, the TMD-560 PG2 tamper switch is activated when the detector cover (see Figure 2) is removed.
Operating power is obtained from an on-board 3 V Lithium battery. A weak battery will result in a “low battery” message.
The TMD-560 PG2 is compatible with PowerMaster control panels.
