The JA-80D universal transmitter 1 / 1 MHQ52802
The JA-80D universal transmitter
The JA-80D is a component of Jablotron’s Oasis 80 alarm system. It is
designed to indicate device status via wireless transmissions. Such a
device is typically a detector, but other devices with an ON/OFF
switching output terminal (whether NC or NO) are also applicable.
Among other uses, status transmission allows the control panel
communicator to report device faults. The JA-80D transmitter is
Installation shall only be undertaken by technicians holding a
certificate issued by an authorized distributor. The transmitter should
be installed vertically. Avoid locating it directly on a metal frame as
metal influences the functioning of the magnetic sensor and radio
• Open the transmitter cover by pressing the tab in.
• Get an appropriate cable ready for the connection of a desired
device and test the device’s output terminal for its NO/NC
• Configure the transmitter function via the DIP switches (No. 1 and
2, see below).
• Route the cable and screw the cover onto the chosen location.
• Enroll the transmitter to the control panel (to a receiver) – follow
the control panel or receiver manual. The basics of enrollment are:
o Enter enrollment mode on the control panel by keying in “1” in
o Install a battery into the device to activate enrollment.
o Exit enrollment mode by pressing #.
• Wire the cable to the terminals and test the function.
To enroll the transmitter after having already connected a battery, first
disconnect the battery, and press and release the tamper sensor to
discharge any remaining charge to ready the device for enrollment.

• NO/NC – determines which of the Closed/Open input states is
interpreted as OFF. By default (corresponding to security industry
standards) the input is NC (Normally Closed). If a pulse reaction
is requested – so that only activations should be signalled – keep
the tamper switch pressed during battery installation.
• INSTANT/DELAY – selects what the natural reaction of the
control panel will be to an activation signal from the device
connected to the IN terminal. INSTANT = instant alarm, DELAY
= entrance delay starts – both require the system to be in a set
(armed) condition. The INSTANT/DELAY option is only
applicable for use with an OASiS control panel with a natural
reaction assigned to its address. The switch has no effect when
used with a UC-8x or AC-8x receiver.
• Whenever the detector (device) cover is opened, a tamper signal
• Tamper indication also occurs on every TMP input
activation. If this function is not desired, the TMP and GND
terminals must be wired together.

Example of NO contact wiring
Note: The wiring loop must not exceed 3 meters in length (this
means a limit of 6 m in the total wire length).
Testing the detector
15 minutes after closing the detector cover, the LED indicates
detector triggering. The strength and quality of the detector‘s radio
signals can be measured by the control panel in Service mode.
Detector battery replacement
The system monitors its battery voltage and if too low, a transmission
is sent to the control panel (receiver) to inform the installer or user. The
detector continues to function and shows each triggering of the
detector with a flash of its LED. Battery replacement should not be
delayed by more than two weeks. This should be done by a qualified
technician with the control panel in Service mode. We recommend
testing the detector immediately after its battery has been replaced.
Inserting a battery with a low voltage results in the LED indicator
flashing for approx. 1 minute. Subsequently, the detector will switch
to normal operation including low battery indication of the kind
Expired batteries should not be thrown into the garbage, but disposed
of according to local regulations.
Removing the detector from the system
If a detector is removed, the control panel announces the removal.
The detector has to be deleted in the control panel before intentional
