Product Research


Overview: The IRH610 is an infrared (IR) sensor expansion hub that connects the output of up to 6 infrared sensors to the IR Main System Unit of an IR repeater system. The hub is constructed of a rustproof, weather-resistant housing of high-impact, injection-molded plastic.

Connections: The IRH610 has a total of 7 screwless connectors which can accommodate CAT-5 wiring. Six of the connectors are inputs for connecting the IR sensors, while the other is an output for connecting the hub to the Main System Unit. The connectors are removable for easier wiring, then simply plug into the hub. Compatible units include:

  • Main System Units: MSU140, MSU250, MSU480, MSU440Z
  • IR Sensors: WS100, WS110, TS100, TS110, MS100, MS110, MS200, MS210, MS220, CS100, CS110, MVC100IR, Intellipad

Power Requirements: The IRH610 requires a 12-volt power supply (not included), such as the Niles 12-volt DC Universal Power Supply (item # 19012VUNIV).

Mounting: The hub has two mounting ears with slots for vertical or horizontal mounting. The unit can mount on a wall or in a structured-wiring cabinet using the supplied snap-in "Christmas Tree" plugs.
