Silent Knight SK-5824 Printer Interface Module Serial/Parallel


Our Price : $224.32

Product Code: SK-5824


With one parallel and one RS-232 serial port, the 5824 Serial/Parallel Interface allows you to connect virtually any standard PC-compatible printer to the IntelliKnight system and to generate reports on-site. You can print a log of real-time events and generate user-friendly reports of event history and detector status. And, because a system can have multiple 5824s, you can locate printers strategically within the installation.

The 5824 also provides the Gateway interface for communicating to other systems, such as a building control system. The Gateway protocol is a data stream produced by the FACP that can be used to display system events on a PC monitor. The protocol allows a building control system to handle events and to silence or reset the FACP.

The 5824 connects to the IntelliKnight panel via the RS-485 system bus. Wire runs can be up to 6,000 feet from the panel

The 5824 has one parallel port and one RS-232 serial port for compatibility with most printers. Two 5824 interfaces can be used with the system, and each can be located as far as 6,000 feet from the IntelliKnight panel, allowing for flexibility in locating printers and accessing data.

The 5824 Gateway protocol allows for interface with other systems, such as building control systems.

Engineering Specifications:

The serial/parallel gateway module must be compatible with a IntelliKnight fire alarm control panel and with any standard PC-compatible printer such as the type normally connected to a computer. The FACP must support up to eight 5824 gateway modules.

The unit shall contain two ports, one parallel and one RS-232 serial and must allow for printing the following types of IntelliKnight system data reports: event log, event history, and detector status. The unit shall use a Gateway protocol that allows for communication with other systems, such as building control software.
