LHD I/F

Fibre-Optic Linear Heat Detector I/F: Modbus

SPIB

These Pertronic Modbus interface units allow fibre-optic linear heat detection systems (LHD) to be integrated into Pertronic F220 fire systems.

  • The Pertronic SPIB-LIOS connects a LIOS DE.TECT system with an F220 fire system
  • The Pertronic SPIB-PWF8000 connects a Protectowire Fibre System 8000 with an F220 fire system

Both interface units connect to the fire alarm control panel's RS-485 bus and communicate with the LHD via Modbus. They can be mounted inside the fire panel, or at a remote location.

These interfaces utilise the fire alarm control panel's loop emulation capability. Each zone on the LHD cable is mapped to a device on an emulated analogue addressable loop.

The Modbus connection is galvanically isolated from the fire alarm control panel’s RS-485 bus.

Features

  • Compatible with Pertronic F220 fire alarm control panels
  • Function as Modbus master devices
  • Modbus connection configurable RS-232 or RS-485, 300 bit/s to 115,200 bit/s
  • Support Modbus TCP when connected to a Modbus Serial to Modbus TCP Gateway
  • Emulate up to four analogue addressable loops. (Note that the total number of actual and emulated loops cannot exceed the panel’s maximum loop capacity)
  • SPIB-PWF8000 supports up to 100 fibre-optic LHD detection zones per emulated loop (maximum 4 x 100)
  • SPIB-LIOS supports
    • Up to 159 fibre-optic LHD detection zones per emulated loop (maximum 4 x 159)
    • Two module addresses representing the LHD controllers global Alarm and Fault indications on the base loop only
  • Each zone on the LHD cable is mapped to a device on an emulated analogue addressable loop
  • Each emulated heat detector can report pre-alarm and fibre break as well as alarm signals
  • Optional fault supervision between the fibre-optic LHD interface and fire alarm control panel
  • Configurable with a PC running a terminal emulation program via USB mini-B cable
  • On-board LEDs provide diagnostic information
  • Electrically isolated from the fire alarm control panel’s RS-485 bus
  • Also compatible with F120A fire panels with v5.0 or later firmware
