The Simplex 4100-3109 provides standard addressable device communications for IDNet compatible devices and accepts optional modules for communications with MAPNET II compatible devices. Using a two-wire communications circuit; individual devices such as manual fire alarm stations, TrueAlarm sensors, conventional IDC zones; and sprinkler waterflow switches can be interface to the addressable controller to communicate their identity and status.
Furthermore, addressability allows the location and condition of the connected device to be display on the operator interface LCD and on remote system annunciators. Additionally, control circuits (fans, dampers, etc.) may be individually control and monitored with addressable devices.
Besides, each Simplex 4100-3109 addressable device on the communication channel is continuously interrogate for status conditions. Both Class B and Class A operations are available. Sophisticated poll and response communication techniques ensure supervision integrity and allow for “T-tapping” of the circuit for Class B operation. Devices with LEDs pulse the LED to indicate receipt of a communications poll and can be turned on steady from the panel.
The CPU bay ES-PS provides an IDNet 2 signaling line circuit; that supports up to 250 addressable monitor and control points intermixed on the same pair of wires. IDNet 2 and IDNet 2+2 Module SLCs are isolated from other system reference voltages to reduce common-mode noise interaction with adjacent system wiring. Additional 250 address IDNet 2 or IDNet 2+2 Modules are available.
