D-LAN Automation Output
The D-LAN Option with SIPPDD (Smart IP Program Data and Diagnostics) Card lets the System 3505 PrismLX communicate, via Ethernet, with up to 100 remote devices, typically Remote Annunciator units, and permits communication on different hubs/switches within a network. Each time a SIPPDD Card equipped System 3505 Prism LX sends information to a Remote Annunciator, the Remote Annunciator will respond solely through the original sender’s hub/switch. Additionally, an equipped System 3505 Prism LX sends data to all its D-LAN devices, but through custom software, can uniquely communicate with any one or multiple Remote Annunciators units. The D-LAN Option with the SIPPDD Card eliminates unwanted broadcast communication in a network environment through the use of specific IP addresses. In most cases, the IT department will assign the IP address(es). The Remote Annunciator IP address must be set to match one of the selected Host Addresses assigned via Windows Explorer (or other web browser) by connection to the SIPPDD address. You must have administrator privileges to change IP settings. After successfully assigning IP addresses to your PC, the System 3505 Prism will recognize the SIPPDD Card immediately upon power-up. The thermal printer will print all critical network related information each time it is powered up. Conversely, should SIPPDD card go undetected, the System 3505 Prism will alert the operator and record the problem.
