Vega Line Driver




The Vega Line Driver is a device which interfaces a personal computer to a Vega loop which is composed of a wired system of analogue addressable fire security devices. Vega Line Driver must be used only in conjunction with computer applications designed and implemented for analogue addressable devices using the Vega protocol.
