Overview of the Axis A9188-VE

The Axis A9188-VE Network I/O Relay Module has 8 configurable I/O ports and 8 form C relays that use inputs from a host of Axis network devices, such as PIR motion detectors or switches to trigger actions. It comes with the Axis T98A outdoor cabinet.

This unit is optimised for floor access management and is a handy tool when integrating the Axis A1001 Network Door controller into a new or pre-existing CCTV system. Additionally, this relay module can be used with Axis IP cameras, motion detectors and other facility systems. For example, motion detection alerts can be used to trigger external alarms, open and close doors or reposition the focus of IP cameras.

Suitable for use in exposed outdoor locations, the unit is supplied with an UL294-approved Axis T98A15-VE Surveillance Cabinet. The relay module is also built on an open platform and supports a range of Axis software including VAPIX and Axis Camera Application Platform (ACAP). Users also have the option to use it with Axis Camera Station Video management software, or other third-party applications. With support for Power-over-Ethernet Plus (PoE+), this module can work as a standalone unit – powering I/O devices and increasing the functionality of Axis network products.
