The DX2010 has the capacity to provide 12 VDC at up to 100 mA from the Auxiliary Output (+) OUT (-) terminals to power external devices such as motion detectors (see Figure 6). If a trouble condition occurs on the DX2010 (such as an overcurrent condition), it sends a data bus trouble message to the panel.
When using the auxiliary output on the DX2010, the maximum distance between the control/communicator and the module must be limited to 250 ft. (76 m) using #18 AWG (1.2 mm) wire or 100 ft. (30 m) using #22 AWG (0.8 mm) wire. The maximum distance from the DX2010 output terminals and the external devices (PIRs, smoke detectors, etc.) must be limited to 50 ft. (15 m) for #22 AWG (0.8 mm) or 100 ft. (30 m) for #18 AWG (1.2 mm) wire.
