  1. Kentix system port: For connecting a Kentix MultiSensor
  2. Plug-in power supply socket


The adapter is connected directly to the Kentix system socket (1) and offers the option of supplying power to a MultiSensor via a plug-in power supply (2).
This may be necessary, for example, if no PoE switch is available to operate a MultiSensor LAN/ LAN RF, or if a MultiSensor RF is to be connected separately to monitor the external power supply. The cable length between MultiSensor and KIO2 adapter should not exceed 50 meters.

This adapter is used exclusively for the voltage supply of a MultiSensor.
The alarm inputs and outputs on the MultiSensor are no longer available when using this adapter.

Configuration with KentixONE

The configuration is done via web browser (HTTPS) using the already integrated KentixONE software. Depending on the operating mode (Main or Satellite) of the device, the configuration takes place on the device itself (operating mode: Main), or on a central instance such as the SiteManager or AlarmManager (operating mode: Satellite).

All information about the software is available in the KentixONE section and the related documentation.

Before you start the configuration, make sure that the software is up to date on all network-enabled Kentix devices. The version status must be the same on all devices.
