a demonstration of the different alarm states.
Screen image is scaled down
Actual size of label is 0.4" high x 7" long (36 Characters) LED's are 0.4" square.
|NORMAL||All points with normal (which can be NO or NC, dip switch selectable) alarm field contacts have the GREEN LED display lit.|
|ALARM||When one of the NO/NC field contacts changes status the RED LIGHT flashes (green goes out), horn SOUNDS.|
|In order to silence the noise, the acknowledge button is pushed - horn goes silent, red goes out, and the AMBER is lit.|
|BACK TO NORMAL||GREEN is automatically restored.|
|MOMENTARY ALARM||If the alarm condition corrects itself before the operator has a chance to acknowledge, the FLASHING RED stays on and a STEADY GREEN returns simultaneously (horn goes silent).|
(Click for demo)
|Marks the first point to fail in a system of interrelated alarms (as on a machine) such that when one fails, they all ultimately go to the alarm condition. Useful for diagnostics. Discriminates in <1mSec.|

|Any point or points can be used to indicate ON, OFF and Standby with the horn silent (or Open, Closed, etc.)|

|Any or all points can be programmed to repeat the alarm sequence(flashing red with horn, requiring the operator to re-acknowledge) if the alarm contacts are not back to normal status after a pre-set time has elapsed. used to monitor respirators etc. where acknowledging alarm but delaying action is not acceptable.|
|Any point can be programmed to ignore abnormal alarm contacts for a pre-set time before going to alarm status.|
|WALL MOUNT||Can be furnished in various NEMA (12, 4, 4X, 7, etc.) panels, in almost any number of alarm points.|
|STAINLESS||Can be furnished in 316SS and sealed for wash down.|
|HORIZONTAL||Our 8 point Display Modules require 5" height and 5" width minimum (10" wide is standard) and can be mounted side by side for horizontal wide displays.|
|DATA LOGGER||An RS232 (or specify RS485) port for connection to a laptop (or may be connected to a desktop PC). Unit stores and time stamps the last 256 events (in a FIFO format). An event is defined as the alarm, the acknoledge, and the return to normal. This provides a complete written record of the duration of the events. Monitors NO/NC contact alarms as well as analog alarms.|
|PLC INPUT||Our unit becomes an audio-visual display for your PLC. Your PLC
would need to be equipped with a 12 or 24 VDC sourcing or sinking output
module (or specify other) any alarm from the PLC is displayed on our unit
with audible and can then be tied into any of our options.
i.e. phone dial out, first out, etc.
|TELEPHONE DIAL OUT||Built in dialer can call out to 5 different numbers (phones, cell phones or PAGERS) and deliver four different voice messages (which can be single alarms or groups of alarms). If power failure is an alarm, be sure to specify battery backup.|
|90 minutes is a standard option mounted inside the enclosure.
Longer times are available.
|Any point or group of points can have a single form C relay output, (or specify dual form C, extra contact). Can follow the inputs or follow the alarm. Specify if time delay is desired.|
|PANEL DOOR MOUNT||Our display with horn and acknowledge pushbutton is provided on a flat plate designed to mount over a cutout and connected by a flexible cord (you specify length) to our field terminal board-power supply which is on a chassis which mounts to your backplate.|
Model number designations consist of:
|The current series of boards that have made up our product line since 1999||The number of points you wish to monitor
(Units come in 8 point increments, i.e. NX8, NX16, NX24, etc.)
|The options can be mixed and matched. A basic list of the options is here.|
|Indicates this Unit has some or all analog points||All or some points are time delayed|
|Any size unit can be furnished with the display panel remote from the alarm input terminal/logic board. The alarm input terminal/logic board (11" x 11.25" x 1.25" stackable) digitizes up to 16 inputs in an RS485 loop. Thus, the display panel can be mounted on your enclosure door and a simple low voltage gray telephone cable (4 conductors) use to tie back to terminal/logic board. The terminal boards can be "stacked" using the standoffs supplied up to 3 high (handles 16x3=48 points) on an 11.5 x 11.5 space on your enclosure backplate. Display panel sizes shown can be arranged on your enclosure door either "side by side" for horizontal configurations or "one above the other" for vertical configurations. If needed, 8 point modules can be as small as 7" wide x 5" wide as shown in our 19" relay rack photo.|
|Horizontal units can mix and match these display plates in any configuration, i.e. 3 display plates of 16 points each mounted side by side would make a horizontal 48 point unit or 6 display plates of 8 points would make a 60" wide x 8" high unit of 48 points. Smaller width and height plates can be furnished on special order - minimum size 6" x 6" for 8 points.||
