The Honeywell 5881ENL is an (8) zone wireless receiver that is compatible with all Honeywell alarm control panels that support a wireless receiver connected to the ECP Bus (keypad terminals). As a member of the 5881EN series of radio frequency (RF) receivers, the 5881ENL features a Spatial Diversity System that essentially eliminates all "nulls" and "dead spots" within the wireless coverage area. Add a 5881ENL (8) zone wireless receiver to your Honeywell security system to make it compatible with the full range of 5800 series wireless sensors.
The 5881ENL wireless receiver accepts alarm signals and status messages from Honeywell wireless transmitters using the 345MHz frequency range. The wireless range of the 5881ENL is 200' nominal from the device to any installed wireless transmitters. Most Honeywell security systems can only use (1) wireless receiver. The higher end commercial control panels can accept more than (1) wireless receiver to provide redundant wireless coverage or provide coverage to a larger area.
As the Honeywell 5881ENL is the low end receiver, it can only be used with (8) programmed wireless zones. If your Honeywell security system is programmed for more than (8) wireless zones a "SET UP ERROR" message will be displayed on alphanumeric keypads and an "E4" or "E8" message will be displayed on fixed English keypads. Until the extra wireless zones are deleted from the security system's zone programming, none of the wireless zones will function properly. If you will be using more than (8) wireless zones, you should look at the Honeywell 5881ENM or Honeywell 5881ENH instead of the 5881ENL. The 5881ENM supports up to (16) wireless zones while the 5881ENH's zone compatibility is limited by the Honeywell security system being used and not by the wireless receiver itself.
Once you have wired the Honeywell 5881ENL to your security system's alarm control panel, you must set the DIP switches to identify the wireless receiver's address within device address programming. For most Honeywell security systems, you should set all dip switches to the off position which will set the 5881ENL to device address (00). As soon as the wireless receiver has been connected and the device address has been programmed, zones 9-16 will be available for wireless zone programming.
