Interface and Expansion Panel
Cut Sheets & Documents: Interface and Expansion Panel The IXP5 Interface and Expansion Module allows an MP5-1, MP5-3 or MP5-10 Monitor Panel to interface to the SCT I Event Logging System or SCT II Security Control Terminal with graphics PC AT Compatible. The IXP5 consists of a single PCB that replaces the blank PCB on the MP5 and the MP5 is then installed in the IMR5-10 or IMC5-5. The IXP5 also provides for communication between MP5’s in the IMR5-10 or IMC5-5. Specifically, when any of the other MP5’s in a rack have messages to print, the message (in the form of an MP5 to MP5 compatible transaction) is sent to the MP5/IXP5 and interfaced to the “outside world” (i.e., terminal, printer, host, PC). The IXP5 also contains non-volatile memory used to store user defined messages that can be assigned to specific conditions/alarm messages (used with MP5-10 only when configured as an SCT I). The standard IXP5 is capable of 100 user messages of 64 characters each. The IXP5 can be easily interfaced to an existing MP5 with minimal effort.
