High performance Internet alarm communicator from DSC

Product Profile

The T-Link TL250 is part of the next generation of low-cost, high-performance network alarm communicators that use the latest digital networking technologies to provide secure Internet communications between Power™ or MAXSYS® control panels and Sur-Gard™ System lll central station receivers.

Programming the T-Link TL250 can be accomplished locally using the control panel keypad or T-Link Console software over the IP network connection made directly to T-Link TL250's Ethernet port.  By interfacing to T-Link TL250's four onboard programmable zone inputs, the unit can be configured to operate as a stand-alone communicator for interfacing existing third party control equipment.

The TL250 works within a proprietary LAN/WAN (Intranet) or over the Internet to communicate alarm signals efficiently and economically to a SG-DRL3-IP central station receiver line card, or System II single line IP receiver.  The TL250 connection is encrypted and fully supervised when used in conjunction with the afore mentioned receivers.

Features include:

  • Supported by PowerSeries and MAXSYS control panels via built-in PC-Link, or stand-alone mode
  • 2-way, always-on IP communication
  • Works over local LAN/WAN network or the Internet
  • 128-bit AES encryption (NIST approved)
  • Supports DHCP (dynamic IP addresses)
