GPIB

General Purpose Interface Board for F120A

GPIB

Pertronic Industries General-Purpose Interface Board (GPIB) provides an interface to allow the status of an Analogue Addressable Panel (F100A, F120A and F220) to be monitored or transmitted to a variety of devices provided by independent suppliers. The GPIB monitors the Analogue Addressable panel events by decoding the current event data transmitted on the RS485 bus. This data is a copy of the current event queues as displayed on the panel’s LCD display. There are multiple queues containing (ordered by priority) Fires, Isolates, Loop Defects, System Defects and Information.
For each event, the GPIB generates a message that is placed in a transmission queue to be sent to the external device. The precise format of the message and transmission is determined by the protocol requirements of the external device and is configured within the GPIB software.
