Essential Info

The MCR-308 is a superheterodyne receiver designed to convert a standard hard-wired control panel into a reliable fully supervised wireless system. It provides a cost-effective opportunity to realize all the benefits of Visonic wireless systems and devices.

The MCR-308 is compatible with all Visonic PowerCode and CodeSecure devices - including hand-held and portable units, window/door transmitters and a variety of detectors and other devices. The MCR-308 has 4 zones, each accommodating up to 4 transmitter devices. It is easily expanded using up to three MCX-8 zone expanders, for a total of 28 zones and 112 wireless devices in a single system. Dry contact outputs can be provided, using the RL-8 relay module that converts 8 open collector outputs to dry contact outputs.


More Info

The MCR-308 is designed for wireless alarm, emergency and arm/disarm applications as well as for remote control applications. It is easy to install and program utilizing a unique "Easy Learn" technique for transmitter enrolment. It provides all the features that professionals require, including four additional outputs for low battery reporting, tamper protection, RF signal jamming and transmitter inactivity indication.

When used with CodeSecure devices, the MCR-308 implements a rolling code encryption algorithm to prevent "code grabbing" by potential intruders trying to defeat the security system.

This highly reliable and versatile receiver is available in several optional frequencies in compliance with European, U.S. and other international standards, and is approved for use by local authorities in most countries.

DAVID -- portland, OR   2/8/2012
worked perfectly to connect wireless smoke detectors to my old wired alarm system

This receiver is by far the best value in a supervised receiver of anything I have found so far. Unlike other devices that are tricky to maintain, this receiver is simple to set up and has a reasonable range. Matched up with Visonic's line of PowerCode sensor, it is very easy to build a simple home monitor or remote site monitor for things like sheds, workshops, and greenhouses.

Had the wireless remote receiver installed by a professional for our hillside tram in the Indiana dunes. Everything works well now, he seemed happy with the product. We especially appreciated your timely delivery, as promised.
