Model AR-5
AC Powered Repeater

The Model AR-5 Repeater, UL Listed 864 Accessory Device, is an addressable bi-directional repeater which is used to form a wireless network which receives, screens, verifies, and retransmits low power radio signals from other CWSI wireless initiating devices, repeaters and control panels. In addition to providing RF signaling within the installation, the AR-5 provides two supervised addressable Notification Appliance Circuits (NACs). An optional RM-5 Plug-in Relay Module adds 5 Form C Relays to the AR-5.
