MCT-550 is a fully supervised wireless flood detector compatible with PowerMax and other Visonic PowerCode wireless security systems. It is designed to detect the presence of water in basements, yachts and many others residential and commercial applications, providing early warning of developing floods.
In default mode, the MCT-550 transmits each flood alert message a single time. However, users may program the detector to repeat the alert every three minutes until the device is reset. To ensure secure communication, transmissions use a PowerCode 24-bit ID command code, which is selected from 16 million possible combinations and is therefore unique and virtually impossible to accidentally reproduce. A smart anti-collision algorithm prevents signal jamming by simultaneous transmissions from multiple devices.
MCT-550 transmits supervisory reports, including battery condition, to the wireless control panel or receiver at regular intervals -- ensuring system integrity and functionality at all times.
