Intelligent Loop Interface-Main Board
The Intelligent Loop Interface-Main Board (ILI-MB-E3) is the main interface for the
E3 Series® product line. With its state-of-the-art 32 bit RISC processor, this compact
“panel on a board” provides a powerful addition to the Gamewell-FCI’s single-pair
conductor solutions. The ILI-E3 Series is used in the following systems.
• E3 Series Expandable Emergency Evacuation System
• E3 Series Combined Fire and Mass Notification System
• E3 Series Broadband Voice Command Center
This intuitive design provides the following features:
These features, combined with the built-in network and the serial protocols, allow this
module to support a host of new and existing products, resulting in a building block
approach to the fire alarm control panel design.
The ILI-MB-E3 is network-ready and occupies 1 of 64 nodes operating at 625K baud.
In addition, the Addressable Node Expander (ANX) board expands the network to 122
nodes. When this sub-assembly is integrated with proven Broadband components,
the result is a flexible yet powerful integrated audio solution. When the system
transmits to remote locations, the optional RPT-E3-UTP provides the ILI-MB-E3 with
valuable signal boosting and transient protection, as well as connectivity using both
wire and fiber-optic cables.
The ILI-MB-E3 provides two signaling line circuits and terminals for the connections
to up to 159 detectors, 159 modules and 159 addressable sounder bases per SLC in
Velociti® mode. In CLIP™ mode, each SLC supports 99 detectors and 99 modules. The
RS-485 interface can support a variety of peripheral devices.
The ILI-MB-E3 relay outputs include system alarm, supervisory, and system trouble
contacts. The ILI-MB-E3 provides output for a local energy city master box or remote
location which is non power-limited. All other wiring is Class 2 power-limited.
*Style 7 wiring requires the use of the System Sensor M500X Isolator Modules.
