Features, Applications

The 600 Series serial annunciator driver (SAN) is used to light a lamp or LED in an annunciator. It also provides a switched positive output per point for interface with building automation systems or driving relays. Each device is capable of interpreting the instructions from the main CPU, initiating its own programmed response, and retransmitting the instructions to the next device. The Gamewell-FCI 600 systems can accommodate to 64 devices connected to the serial communications port. In addition to the serial annunciator drives (SAN), these devices include remote annunciator (RAN) and remote printer interface (RPI). This combination of devices comprise the Gamewell-FCI status control network. Since each device contains its own microprocessor, each can be programmed independently. A series of devices can be programmed directly over the network from a single device, saving valuable installation time. Programming is accomplished via Windows®-based configuration software. Each SAN input point can activate up to five output points for matrix annunciation. There are two basic models available, the SAN and the SAN-RC. The SAN-16 is equipped with 16 freely programmable outputs which can be used for remote control or monitoring, expandable to 128 points using PDM modules. The SAN-16-RC has all of the features of the SAN-16, plus the ability to read inputs into the system. The SAN-16-RC has provisions for four inputs for: remote acknowledge, reset, signal silence, and lamp test. In addition to the basic 16 outputs, there are eight (8) common outputs for: common system alarm, common system trouble, AC power, communications, action required LED prompts for system acknowledge, reset and signal silence, and a driver for a local audible. The status control network, including SAN units, is connected to the main 600 Series control panel via an RS-232 data communication line. The SIM-232 module is used to

provide an isolated RS-232 output from the main CPU of the 600 Series system panels. The IF602 and IF610 panels have built-in RS-232 ports.


The SAN units provide a means for remote annunciation and control of the system via a simple RS-232 connection. These driver units fit neatly into an annunciator unit and can be used to drive the LED or incandescent lights of a standard or graphic-type annunciator. When it is necessary for remote system control, the SAN-16-RC provides for up to eight inputs for system control. Any or all inputs may be used to customize any given command station's capabilities. The SAN units can also be used to interface with other building systems via ASCII or where dry contacts or a switched output is required. The SAN's outputs can be used to drive a relay to interface or control virtually any remote point or group of points.

Remote annunciation and control for the main control panel shall be supplied where indicated. Remote annunciation and control shall be accomplished via the RS-232 data communications line. It shall be possible to add to 64 devices to the communication line. Each device shall be capable of driving to 128 points. It shall be possible to mix annunciators, printers and LCD alphanumeric displays on a single line without the need for special software. Devices shall not be placement sensitive. All devices shall be individually field programmable and independent from each other. The device shall be Gamewell-FCI part numbers.
