Reno A&E Introduces New Bus Interface Units

Reno A&E is excited to introduce two new Bus Interface Units, models BIU-1220 and BIU-1240. The BIU-1200 series BIU interfaces 24V logic signals to the SDLC serial bus in a NEMA TS-Cabinet. The unit interfaces between the controller unit and the loop detector racks, terminals and facilities and other devices in a NEMA TS-2 cabinet assembly. The BIU-1200 series models are compatible with all controller units and cabinets compliant with the requirements of NEMA Standard TS2-2003. The model BIU-1220 is a half-width configuration (1.12” wide face plate) and the BIU-1240 is the standard-width configuration (2.25” wide face plate). For more information on our new units, please call us today at +1-775-826-2020 and visit
