Gateway Radio Interface
The G2 Gateway Radio Interface (GaRI) connects the G2 Communications Gateway and up to two radio channels simultaneously, alerting firefighter units without dispatcher intervention. It allows the Communications Gateway to sense if the channel is busy and initiate transmission when the channel is free.

8.9 x 5.8 x 2.0 (in); 227 x 148 x 51 (mm)
(2) Dry contact
(2) Form A relays rated .5A @ 48V AC or resistive load only
(2) Ethernet with integrated 3-port switch
(1) Radio audio and control pass-through input; (2) radio audio and control outputs; (1) I/O control
Indicators and controls:
Channel activity; I/O status; LAN connection
120-240VAC auto switching
19-in. rack; mount plate
A brief overview of the Phoenix G2 Gateway Radio Interface (GaRI)
The GaRI has an integrated network switch that allows it to be connected directly to two Communications Gateway servers in a hot-standby configuration or to other network devices, as necessary. In special applications, the GaRI can be connected to a customer data network to allow the GaRI to be distantly located from the Gateway servers. When control switches from one Gateway computer to another, the GaRI seamlessly switches the necessary audio and signaling connections as well, maintaining uninterrupted radio communications.
Individual inputs and outputs have separate LED indications for easy troubleshooting. The extruded, all-aluminum enclosure features laser-etched labels for all inputs and outputs, as well as flanged plates for easy install.
