Galaxy 60 Rio Psu

Recommended Posts

I need to extend my Galaxy 60 alarm system to add 3 IR detectors in a games room /workshop which is at the end of my garden c.90m from the main panel in my house.

Will I need a RIO with a PSU/backup battery or just a regular Rio.?

Also is a Galaxy 2-20 Rio/PSu compatable with the Galaxy 60.

Hoping someone can help.

cheers

Graham :)

always better to have local power, yes.

I'd always prefer to install a powered RIO at that sort of distance, eliminates volt drop, as well as gives a degree of separation between the main panel and the RIO. I'd ensure it has battery backup, but beware that most shed installs will have a RCD installed at the house end, so if that trips you're likely to end up with an outage down there if there's no battery.
