TESTED – CSL MiniAir 2

by Andy Clutton

MiniAir 2 is a single-path signalling solution that utilises a 4G/LTE-M path to signal an alarm from protected premises to an ARC. It comes with a standby SIM as a backup to safeguard the system, if the active SIM fails. Both SIMs operate on an independent network from the other for total resilience. ​It is designed for both residential and commercial premises as an affordable upgrade from a digital communicator to secure signalling.

Getting started

Provided with the MiniAir 2 is a quick instruction guide that provides detail on how to connect the unit to a system in multiple different ways. The paper handout is also easily found on CSL DualCom’s website under the associated product.

The unit is constructed of a hard plastic material and is pre-installed with a fixed fly lead for easier installation. The product is more than suitable for any in-panel installation.

The unit can be set up to suite most applications where signalling is required. The device was easily set-up on the modern control panels it was tested on, as well as the older, legacy systems. The device is able to be set up easily by one of the following methods:

  • Connected directly to the panels digi-modem
  • Dial Capture
  • Connected to an armed status output – typically a bell output

The device can also be easily configured for a remote arm and disarm and connected to the end user application.
