AlNet-2007 System ADI-08E Station ZX-8 Station ZX-16 Station

AlNet-2007 System


The AlNet-2007 System comprises of a Monitoring&Control center ­ essentially a set of PCs with one or multiple RS-485 communication adapter(s), running our AlNet Control software ­ and multiple ADI-08 Stations, each a fully functioning Alarm/Access Control Panel.

Up to 64 ADI-08 or ZX-8 Stations can be connected to a single RS-485 data loop, in a multi-drop configuration (star configuration is also permissible for short range systems). Up-to 8 RS-485 ports can be connected on a PC - for a total of 512 Stations per one PC.
Up to 8 ADI-08 and/or ZX-8 Stations can be grouped together in a "Cluster" forming a single Alarm Panel of up to 64 zones. The number of "Clusters" and the number of stations in each "Cluster" has no additional limitations (all members of a "Cluster" must reside on the same RS-485 loop).  Get More Info


Stations are connected to the Central via 2 wires for communication + 2 wires for power (optional).
Stations can be located at large distances from the Central - standard at up to 1500 meters, double with RS-485 Repeaters. A continuos two-way data communication is performed for each RS-485 loop - all loops running in parallel. A fast scanning data rate (19,200 bits/sec) allows for a complete round on all possible Station of less than 3 seconds (fully loaded system - for less stations, round time is shorter). On each scanning round, each station - in response to an addressed request from the Central PC - transmits an update of its current status, complete with information on all inputs state, and panel operation mode info. All new events (e.g. Arm/Disarm, Alarm, etc..) are also transmitted on each round. The system operator has a real time view of the status of all Stations inputs and operational mode - updated every round cycle time (less than 3 sec. for max. loaded system).
The two-way fast communication handles the following additional functions:
  • Complete remote control of each Station operation (under multi-level password supervision), including Arm/Disarm, Bypass Zone(s).
  • Remote On/Off control of each Station Control Outputs.
  • Station parameters download, modification and upload (e.g. inputs names and definitions, timers setting, Station operation modes, etc.) ­ from the Central, all under multi-level password supervision.
  • Complete remote update of any station Firmware (for versions update, language change, features adding, etc.)

The Central:

A PC, equipped with RS-485 Interface(s) comprises the Central Hardware. Up to 8 RS-485 interfaces can be installed, each handling a maximum of 64 ADI-08E Stations - all controlled by the AlNet-2007 Control software. Output data can be provided (via RS-232 port(s)) for our Multi-User WinGal98 Automation software, and/or to a special modem for Events report to a Remote Central, using the standard Contact-ID protocol.
The AlNet-2007 Software features:
  • General-View screen, allowing an overall status display of all Stations on one screen: each Station has a designated color-coded square, including its name and the status (represented by a specific color): Off, Armed-Stay, Armed-Away, In-alarm, Not-responding. Any high-priority event from a Station (e.g. Alarm, Panic, etc.) will be presented with a "blinking" Station square, to be reset after Operator acknowledge.
  • Incoming Events screen: each Event is displayed with a date/time stamp, Event description including User/Operator name (where applicable), Station description (name, location). The Event is color-coded reflecting its priority.
  • Two level graphical description (map) for each Station:
    - Floor level with flashing Icon for Stations in Alarm/Emmergency.
    - Protected site level, with color coded Icons for each Zone reflecting its Real-Time status: In Restore, In Alarm(flashing), Alarm Memory. Alarm Memory can be cleared manually or automatically on System Disarm.
  • A Station (or Cluster) can be individually chosen for detailed real-time status display including:
    - Zones state (Open, Restore, Trouble).
    - System operation mode (Off, Armed Stay/Away, In-Alarm, Panic/Fire/Medical, Ready to be armed, Tamper state, etc.).
    - Siren&Remote Control Outputs state.
    - Station (cluster) last Events (scrollable Log history screen) - updated in real-time
    - Analog data (Station voltage supply, Inputs analog data, Temperature)
  • The following Remote Control operations can be carried out for each Station (or cluster) - each with its special authorization (by operator) with a password:
    - System Arm Away/Stay.
    - System Disarm.
    - Zone Bypass.
    - Outputs control (Siren, Microphone, General purpose).
  • Station modifiable Parameters can be downloaded, modified and then re-loaded (uploaded). These include:
    - names of zones, users, outputs;
    - zones operating mode (for each system state);
    - General Operating modes (e.g. Short Arm, Silent Panic, Remote Disarm enable, etc.);
    - Timers/Delays;
    - Supply status report levels, etc.
  • Complete or partial Firmware update of any Station. Enables versions update, language replacement, new features, etc. - all remotely updated from the Central.
  • Assistance for Real-time Events handling by the operator:
    - Open Events list, automatically updated by incoming Alarm Events Manual Event closing by the operator.
    - Operator handling log, with automatic/manual handling description.
    Handling Log includes date/time stamp, as well as operator ID.
  • Management functions including:
    - Creating new Stations (clients) - Name, Station ID, Place, Graphic data.
    - Updating parameters to existing Stations.
    - Creating Station Clusters.
    - Extensive Reports facility (on-line).
