Alarm Concentrator is an alarm input monitoring
device and remote control unit that monitors
up to 12 input lines and communicates the input
line state change or sends a predefined message
via ethernet to either a nominated server PC,
an i-Page Server ,
a third party monitoring or logging program
or it can send an email. It can also communicate
with other ACU2000 units for remote control.
used as an alarm paging system it can also
be used for remote alarm gathering and transmission
to other network based systems using standard
protocols. ACU2000 units can also be used to
remotely control each other by for example
the alarm input on one unit activating a relay
on a remote unit over an ethernet LAN.
indications can activate a local or remote
relay action or can initiate an email message
or a short message to either a pager, SMS cellphone
or other mobile communications device.
provides 12 individually designated inputs
and 4 individually addressable relays and can
be daisy chained with additional ACU2000s via
RS232 if ethernet ports are in short supply
to create a highly flexible remote monitoring & control
system capable of providing dozens of programmable
inputs and outputs.
may in some circumstances also be used as a
serial to serial RS232 link over an ethernet
