5800MICRA vs 5818MNL
The 5800MICRA is Honeywell’s smallest single zone wireless transmitter. The 5800MICRA is ETL listed which means it is tested for UL standards. Repeating transmissions is not a feature of the 5800MICRA. The 5800MICRA is supervised and the transmitter will send a check in signal every 70-90 minutes. A user can program input type UR, which will keep the panel from detecting check in signals but will detect low battery signals. The operating frequency of the 5800MICRA is 345MHz. The 5800MICRA has operating temperatures from 10F - 120F but is not weatherproof. The 5800MICRA has typically 100 feet RF transmitting range. The 5800MICRA has 1 loop reed switch which is normally closed. The 5800MICRA dimensions are 0.750” D, wire antenna is 11” x 0.050” D (24 gauge) and the cavity depth is 0.330”
The 5818MNL is also a single zone wireless transmitter that is half the size of a standard transmitter. The 5818MNL is UL listed for residential burg and is UL Canada listed. Repeating transmissions is not a feature of the 5818MNL. The 5818MNL is a supervised transmitter and will send a check in signal every 70-90 minutes. A user can program input type UR which will keep the panel from detecting check in signals but will detect low battery signals. The operating frequency of the 5818MNL is 345MHz. The 5818MNL has operating temperatures from 32F - 122F but is not weatherproof. The 5818MNL has a 200 feet nominal RF transmitting range. the 5818MNL has 1 loop reed switch which is normally closed. The 5818MNL dimensions are ¾” D x 3” L, magnet dimensions ⅜” D x ½” L.
Both the 5800MICRA and the 5818MNL are part of the 5800 series and have a battery life of over 10 years.
As listed both transmitters functionalities are very similar - they are both quite small, with the 5800MICRA having less RF transmitting range, than the 5818MNL but a 5800RP wireless repeater can be used.
