The ALERT Decoder – 1000 Series decodes incoming data and provides a RS-232C output for computer input. Data is transferred out the ALERT Decoder’s serial port at the same time it is received at the audio input. An “active” light comes on when the ALERT Decoder receives data as visual feedback for verifying proper operation.
The ALERT Decoder – 1000 Series is powered by 12 VDC. This facilitates the ALERT Decoder’s use in the field while performing gauge maintenance and installation. The ALERT Decoder comes with a 6 ft (1.83 m) serial cable, (25-pin Male to 9-pin Female), a 12 VDC charger (110 VAC), and a harness for optional battery back-up. (Note: A 5600 Series, 12 VDC Rechargeable Back-Up Battery, is recommended if uninterrupted back-up power is required.)
