Wireless Translator™

• Listens to 2GIG protocol wireless devices: DWS, PIR, Glass Break, Fob, Panic.
• Transmits Honeywell protocol wireless.
• No sensor enrollment required.
• All sensor alarm, supervisory and trouble signals are passed through.
• Main device has its own unique ID for supervisories, complete reporting
of main device tamper, external power supply fault and low battery.
• Dual antennas for both Receive and Transmit diversity for reliable range.
• Back-up battery protects during loss of external power.

Key Instructions
• External supply: 12V DC at least 50 mA. NON-SWITCHED outlet.
Wire polarity DOES NOT matter!
• Mount Translator at least 20 feet from Control Panel’s receiver.
• 3 AAA Alkaline batteries give 72 hours backup if external supply fails.
• Enrolling:
Power the Translator. It starts translating immediately.
Sensors are NOT enrolled in the Translator.
2GIG sensors may be enrolled into Honeywell system using
the tripping enrollment mode. They are not enrolled in the
Enroll the Translator into a zone, because it sends check-in
supervisories, cover tamper and low battery messages.
• Zone Type: 8 (24 hour Aux) – When cover opened:
“fault” when system not armed, “alarm” when
system armed.
• Input Type: 3 (Supervised RF), Loop 2 (but Loop
doesn’t really matter).
• When prompted, toggle the tamper switch to enroll
the serial number.


• Existing 2GIG protocol sensors transmit as usual. Translator passes
information on to control panel as if they were Honeywell transmitters.
• Here is the Fob behavior…

• Translator Main Zone wireless transmission ( unique ID):
Tamper, when cover opened. Also sends restore.
Low battery, when low battery. Also sends restore.
Supervisory every hour. Supervisory stopped if 12V DC power absent.

• LED Operation
Green LED
• On if 12V DC power present.
• Blinks on receipt of 2GIG-compatible packets.
• On if device low battery (unless there’s no 12V DC
• Blinks on transmit of Honeywell-compatible packets.
• Application Diagram
Because the Translator has two antennas, for both receive
and transmit diversity, it will generally have better range
than all sensors, and many panels (particularly those with
internal antennas).
Place the Translator generally in the center of the all the
existing sensors it needs to hear. It will have no problem
reaching the control panel.

FCC Notice
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC rules. Operation is subject to the following
two conditions:
(1)This device may not cause harmful interference.
(2)This device must accept any interference that may be received, including
interference that may cause undesired operation.

Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the Resolution Products, Inc. could
void the user's authority to operate this equipment.


IC Notice
This device complies with Industry Canada license-exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is
subject to the following two conditions:
(1)This device may not cause interference, and
(2)This device must accept any interference, including interference that may cause
undesired operation of the device.

Le présent appareil est conforme aux CNR d'Industrie Canada applicables aux appareils
radio exempts de licence. L'exploitation est autorisée aux deux conditions suivantes:
(1)l'appareil ne doit pas produire de brouillage, et
(2)l'utilisateur de l'appareil doit accepter tout brouillage radioélectrique subi,
même si le brouillage est susceptible d'en compromettre le fonctionnement.

IC: 8310A-RE224

Under Industry Canada regulations, this radio transmitter may only operate using an antenna of a type and
maximum (or lesser) gain approved for the transmitter by Industry Canada. To reduce potential radio interference
to other users, the antenna type and its gain should be so chosen that the equivalent isotropically radiated power
(e.i.r.p.) is not more than that necessary for successful communication.

Conformément à la réglementation d'Industrie Canada, le présent émetteur radio peut fonctionner avec une
antenne d'un type et d'un gain maximal (ou inférieur) approuvé pour l'émetteur par Industrie Canada. Dans le but de
réduire les risques de brouillage radioélectrique à l'intention des autres utilisateurs, il faut choisir le type d'antenne
et son gain de sorte que la puissance isotrope rayonnée équivalente (p.i.r.e.) ne dépasse pas l'intensité nécessaire à
l'établissement d'une communication satisfaisante.

This radio transmitter (identify the device by certification number, or model number if Category II) has been
approved by Industry Canada to operate with the antenna types listed below with the maximum permissible gain
and required antenna impedance for each antenna type indicated. Antenna types not included in this list, having a
gain greater than the maximum gain indicated for that type, are strictly prohibited for use with this device.

Le présent émetteur radio (identifier le dispositif par son numéro de certification ou son numéro de modèle s'il fait
partie du matériel de catégorie I) a été approuvé par Industrie Canada pour fonctionner avec les types d'antenne
énumérés ci-dessous et ayant un gain admissible maximal et l'impédance requise pour chaque type d'antenne. Les
types d'antenne non inclus dans cette liste, ou dont le gain est supérieur au gain maximal indiqué, sont strictement
interdits pour l'exploitation de l'émetteur.
