The MCX-8 is an 8-output expander unit especially designed to increase the number of outputs of the MCR-308 PowerCode wireless receiver, which can be found on all our Powermax security systems.
Up to THREE MCX-8 expanders, with 8 outputs each, can be connected to the MCR-308. The expanders communicate with the receiver via a 4-wire power/data bus.
