Bridge

The Visit Bridge
Art. no. BE1520

Introduction

The Visit system consists of a number of radio transmitters and receivers. The transmitters detect  different events in the surrounding area and transmit a radio signal to the receivers. The receivers pick up this signal and provide indications using light, sound and/or vibration.

The transmitter determines what type of light, sound or vibration should be displayed so that the reason for the indication is evident. Read through the entire user manual first and then start to install the system.

This is how the Visit Bridge works

The Visit Bridge conveys signals between the Bellman Visit System and the Bellman Visit 868 System. With a Visit 868 Bridge, you can therefore use products from the old and new system side by side.

Getting started

Unpacking, installing and testing the unit

  1. Open the battery cover (7). Connect the power supply unit to the socket (6), fit one back-up battery, either a 6LR61 alkaline or 6F22 lithium type battery, and close the battery cover.
  2. Press the Test Button (2). The Visit Bridge lights up the LED (1) to indicate that the unit is transmitting a radio signal. The Visit and Bellman Visit receivers will indicate the Door Signal.
  3. Mount the Visit Bridge on the wall either using the self-adhesive Velcro tape or suspended on the wallmount bracket (8) on the screw supplied. If the Velcro tape is used, the wall on which the transmitter is to be positioned can be cleaned using the enclosed wet wipe. The Visit Bridge can also be placed on a level surface, e.g. a table, but you should avoid placing it on the floor.

Function

General

The BE1520 Visit 868 Bridge is a product for indoor use and operates as an interpreter, which conveys radio signals between the Bellman Visit and Bellman Visit 868 systems. With a Visit Bridge, you can therefore use products from the old and new system side by side.
The Bellman Visit System will not of course have the same wide range of new indication options as the new Visit 868 System, but the system will emit signals.

The Visit Bridge also operates as a multi-function transmitter, either via a pushbutton or via an input for an Exterior External Trigger. The Pushbutton and the Exterior External Trigger can be detected separately and transmit different Signal Patterns to the receivers in the Visit System depending on what has activated the Visit Bridge. There is a range of options for connecting the Visit Bridge to various applications.

Radio key

On delivery all Bellman Visit units are tuned to the same Radio Key. If you have a neighbour with a similar system, you can change to different Radio Keys so that you do not affect each other’s systems. All units in a system must have the same Radio Key.

If you use the Radio Key Switch (5) to change the Radio Key on this transmitter, you must also change all other units in your Bellman Visit System to the same Radio Key. Refer to the user manual for the relevant unit.

All Bellman Visit products within the same system must be tuned to the same Radio Key in order to operate as a group.

Indicators and Signals

System indicators

The LED (1) blinks, when the Visit Bridge transmits or receives radio signals.

Power supply

When the Visit Bridge is activated, the LED (1) normally blinks green. This means that the back-up battery is in good condition. 
If the LED (1) blinks yellow, this means that the back-up battery is flat and must be changed. Only use a 6LR61 (alkaline) or 6F22 (lithium) type battery.

When the Bridge is connected to the power supply unit, the LED is constantly green, apart from when it is receiving or transmitting radio signals when it blinks.

Troubleshooting in brief

PROBLEMSOLUTION
Nothing happens when the transmitter is activated with the test button(2).
  • Check that the power supply unit is connected correctly.
  • If the power supply unit is not connected, change the back-up battery. Only use an alkaline 6LR61 or a lithium 6F22 type battery. Make sure that the power supply unit is connected correctly.
The LED (1) blinks yellow when the Visit Bridge is activated.
  • Change the back-up battery. Only use an alkaline 6LR61 or a lithium 6F22 type battery.  Make sure that the power supply unit is connected correctly.
The LED (1) blinks green when the Visit Bridge is activated but the receivers are not responding.
  • Check the battery in the receiver.
  • Check that the receivers are not placed too far away by moving them closer to the Bridge
  • Check that the Bridge is set to the correct radio key. For further information see Function/Radio key.
The receivers in the system transmit signals for no reason.
  • Change the Radio Key on all units in the system. For further information see Function/Radio key.
