Shield Digital LHD Control Module (LH-DCM) is designed to enhance the functionality of existing or new Digital LHD systems. The Module is intended to be installed between the Digital LHD cable and a conventional or addressable re alarm control panel.

The LH-DCM simultaneously monitors two zones of Digital LHD cable (up to 3,000 metres per zone) for an alarm or fault condition. If an overheat or fire situation triggers either zone of the Digital LHD cable, the LH-DCM automatically calculates and displays the distance along the cable, in feet and metres, to the alarm point. The two zones can operate independently of each other or in interlock/coincidence detection mode to eliminate the possibility of false alarms.

An RS-485 Modbus RTU output also allows direct connection into a PLC or other process control system.
