PRODUCT INFORMATION

vhfBridge

Module for connecting Ajax Security Systems to third-party VHF transmitters

Instant alarm transmission without Internet

 

vhfBridge is a transponder that provides a hub with an additional channel to communicate with a monitoring station. With vhfBridge you can use Ajax systems in cities where Internet connection is unstable, in nature reserves, mountain and desert areas.

 

 Alarms and events of the system are transmitted via VHF radio waves over tens of kilometres1.

 vhfBridge can be used as a primary or a backup communication channel.

Reliability and versatility by design

 

  • Place for a backup battery2 150 × 64 × 94 mm
  • Perforated areas in the casing3 for accurate cable management
  • 8 adjustable positive/negative trip outputs for sending events to a VHF transmitter
  • VHF transmitter power supply 12 V DC, 2 A
  • Casing protected from sabotage tampers detecting opening and removal from the surface3

Elaborate autonomy

 

You can build in a 7 Ah backup battery inside a vhfBridge casing. It will feed a VHF transmitter with up to 2A current consumption. Therefore, the transmitter doesn't need to have a separate battery, which makes maintenance less frequent. In case of a power outage at a facility, the transponder and the transmitter operate on a backup battery for up to 75 hours4 while still transmitting events to a central monitoring station.

 

  • Up to 75 hours4 of autonomous operation
  • Place for a 7 Ah backup battery

Adjustable signalling

 

Get only events you need. You can configure each vhfBridge output in the Ajax app: set an event or disable it.

Uncompromised security of communication

 

vhfBridge communicates with a hub via an encrypted Jeweller radio protocol. It guarantees continuous interaction of all security system devices. The radio protocol uses frames to synchronize device communication sessions, authentication to prevent forgery, and encryption to protect against data theft.

 

  • Connection with a hub at a distance of up to 1,800 meters
  • Alarm transmission within 0.15 seconds
  • Hub ping interval from 12 seconds

Hassle-free installation

 

Similar to other Ajax devices, vhfBridge connects to a hub in the app by scanning a QR-code. The transponder casing has perforated areas for more organized wiring. Outputs are configurable with Ajax apps for smartphones and computers.
