Ethernet Gateway Mk2 Card

Product Overview

The Pertronic Ethernet Gateway Mk2 Card enables Pertronic Analogue Addressable Panels to interface to an Ethernet network. The Gateway Card is used in conjunction with Pertronic Graphics System for remote management and monitoring of Pertronic Analogue Addressable Fire Alarm Panels over an IP based Ethernet LAN or the Internet. Based on the ARM microprocessor, the Gateway card formats, filters and distributes the panel data to the Ethernet, leaving Panel with the important task of detecting and reporting Alarms.

Typically mounted within the Fire Alarm Panel, the Ethernet Gateway card allows data from the panel’s RS485 mimic port to be available to external equipment, such as the Pertronic FireMap, Graphics System, enabling the stat us of the panel to be shown pictorially with user control facilities for Isolate, Acknowledge and Reset. This provides remote interrogation of the panel to allow detector status to be checked and other functions.

16 digital inputs are available to interface with other equipment, such as conventional control panels or non-Pertronic product to signal Alarm on the Graphics System.
