- The technological development has brought large improvements
also to the field of security technology, especially for the central alarm
units against fire and intrusion.
- This means for example SECURITON SMS 500 detection system
can be extended to modular structure for up to 40 alarm lines with up to
255 alarm groups, divided into up to 32 areas of detection.
The SECURITON ILS 5000 Information and Processing System
The ILS 5000 system has been developed in consideration
of the following criteria:
- The possibility to connect also other than SECURITON
- The microprocessor-controlled central alarm
unit makes it possible to program all customized parameters on site, automatically
addresses the detectors and operational devices, make individual requests
of their states and so on.
On the other hand, additional detectors/operational
devices can be easily connected without large expenses, due to the tamper
proof transmission line SECURILINEŽ.
The System Structure
Special care has been taken for the system and functional
safety. The safety levels corresponds at the least to that of the safety systems
The Operational Comfort
Normally, operation is reduced to the pressing of functional
keys, the present assignment of which can be taken from the corresponding
menu, or the system is operated by pressing keys with preset meanings.
In the case of alarm or failure, the description of the
incident is displayed on the operator screen. Furthermore, the screen displays
the exact location of the incident, the predefined collection of actions to
be taken as well s the present assignment of the functional keys, such as
'reset of the acoustic alarm'.
Moreover, the place of an incident (alarm, failure) can
be displayed graphically on a graphics terminal in the form of a ground plan.
Besides the alarm processing, the ILS-software offers several more functions,
- Requests: The state of the connected systems
can be interrogated as far down as the detector level. All systems are listed
on the screen, and by pressing the appropriate function key, the selected
object (e.g. a building), then the desired area (e.g. story in the building),
the desired group (e.g. room in the story), and finally a list of the detectors
of this group with their states (on, off, alarm, revision) may be successively
selected. The selection is made according to its textual contents.
- Control: The connected systems can be controlled
from the central unit. All control functions, which can be used on the connected
systems themselves, can be carried out from here.
- Modification: These functions are only
accessible to the system administrator and refer to the modification of
the user profile function and the interventions.
The ILS central unit consists of a powerful Eclipse central
processing unit (CPU) by Data General and the AOS/VS operating system.
- Depending on complexity and size of the systems connected,
central and peripheral memories of corresponding sizes are used. The normal
configuration consists of 4MB RAM, 70-MB hard disk, 22MB cartridge tape
and a 737KB-diskette drive.
Up to 32 autonomous safety systems (intrusion,
attack, perimeter protection, fire, access control) and up to 16 peripheral
devices for the operation of the central alarm unit may be connected to
the V24/RS 232 interfaces. Normally, monochrome text terminals, color graphics
terminals and printers are used as operational devices.
Configuration in Case of Local Integration
Local integration means monitoring and
control of several safety systems within one building. Data transmission is
made via LAN (Local Area Network).
Systems Configuration in Case of Geographical
Geographical Integration means connection of several geographically
decentral buildings (branches, agencies) to the ILS central unit.
Here, again, the individual branches may be equipped with
several safety systems.
- Data transmission between the central building and the
branches is effected via WAN-modem or own leased lines.
- The PADs integrated in the main computer (central building)
and in the node (branches), respectively, provided for the batch-wise data
- To prevent possible data theft, in some
cases in the central building and in the individual branches encoders/decoders
can be integrated.
- Technical facilities, such as heating,
air conditioning, and ventilating systems and lifts etc. can also be switched
on and off from the central unit.
- Moreover, possible failures can be received.
DARES (Data acquisition and remote control system), integrated in racks,
provided for the digital inputs and outputs between the central unit and
the technical systems.
