How This Application Works:

This solution replaces your Form 4 remotes and master station providing you with a contemporary, fully supported system. This proposal consists of two (2) phases. The first phase application will utilize T/Mon NOC monitoring the ASCII output of your Digitize master as well as the Pulse Interface modules, NetGuardian alarm remote, Ethernet switch, T/Mon interrogation software and assorted cables.

Also, consider 2 visits to your location. The 1st would be for the initial field trial and the 2nd to assist your staff with the turn up of the Phase 1 system and perform training.

The second phase includes the secondary T/Mon NOC that will act as a Hot-Standby to the primary T/Mon NOC, providing redundancy and off-line data basing.

The Pulse Interface Module incorporates the perfect balance of functionality, rugged design and cost efficiency making it ideal for replacing your Form 4 equipment. As with all of our custom engineering projects that create a perfect fit with our clients needs, we do not charge any custom engineering fees.

Each Pulse Interface Module (PIM) supports two Loops. As alarms come in, they are registered and displayed on the front panel LCD showing the box the alarm is coming from. Each loop will be independent from each other as well as each box. This will allow the system to receive simultaneous alarms on each channel. They will be queued up in the PIM and reported over LAN to the existing T/Mon NOC. The T/Mon NOC will be running a new software module that interpret and map each alarm.

The PIM has a front craft port for firmware downloading, an LCD display for viewing alarms or printing the decoding of the lines or the current loop setting. Each of the 2 polling loops on the PIM has it's own set of level controls. A key feature of the PIM is a audible alarm for local annunciation. Combined with the LCD display you'll have both a audible and visual display of both channels. In addition, the units will operate +24v utilizing the existing power source running the Form 4. On the back panel, each loop will connect to the PIM via a locking connector providing secure connection to the back panel. We've also included a 16 port 10/100 switch where all the PIMs will connect via LAN.
