Product Code: SK-IPDACT2


The new IntelliKnight SK-IP-2 and SK-IP-2UD are IP communicators, UL listed for monitoring of Silent Knight fire alarm panels.(See compatibility table) The SK-IP-2 has two supervised inputs, and two additional outputs.The SK-IP-2UD version 6.0 adds a modem daughter board (2UD) that supports upload/download over the Internet or a customer's Intranet for IntelliKnight models 5820XL and 5808 FACPís. These IP Communicators are UL 864 listed for signaling under Other Transmission Technologies and comply with NFPA 72 requirements. Refer to the IP Communicator Series Installation Document PN 53109 for more information.

Both models connect to the primary and secondary communication ports of the panel's DACT, converting the analog signals into digital signals at the panel for transmission to a compatible Teldat VisorALARM PLUS IP receiver at a central station. The panel operates normally during an alarm, supervisory or trouble event and sends contact-ID formatted analog information out of the telephone ports to the IP Communicator. The IP Communicator reformats the data into highly encrypted Ethernet UDP packets for transmission to a compatible receiver at the central station. This new listing only requires an IP connection. No backup analog phone line is necessary.

Designed to work with compatible Contact ID DACT-equipped addressable panels from Silent Knight, the IP Communicators allow for faster and more economic digital alarm transmissions, improving response times and decreasing costs found with traditional analog systems. They offer value-added features such as supervised line functionality, where a central station can detect any off-line alarm panels within seconds. On the central station side, a compatible VisorALARM Plus IP receiver from the Teldat Corporation allows seamless integration into existing conventional central station architectures.

The benefit of an IP Communicator is that it is always on, increasing the security and supervision of the central station connection from once every 24 hours for a supervisory test signal to once every 30 - 90 seconds.

The SK-IP-2UD allows a programmer to upload and download data between the user's PC and either the IntelliKnight 5808 or 5820XL addressable FACP. The panel and PC can be anywhere on the world wide web or within a corporate intranet. The userís computer runs a program called UDPORT.exe to capture the modem signals from or the newer PS-TOOLS panel programming software. In UDPORT.exe the user enters the main IP address of the VisorALARM receiver, the UDP port to use, username, and password Instead of using the PCís modem, this process communicates between the SK-IP-2UDís modem at the panel and the panelís own modem.

While speed is still limited to the baud rate of the panel's modem, panel communications are now 100% digital over IP from the remote program PC all the way to the remote panel installation. This eliminates any dropouts in modem communications caused by noise or other factors. If an alarm should occur during upload or download, the panel is able to interrupt modem communications immediately and transmit the alarm to the central station.

Each SK-IP-2UD is registered in the VisorALARM Receiver with a unique serial number. A subscriber number must be entered into the subscriber number database field for each SK-IP-2UD. This same number is entered into the subscriber telephone number field (panel to call) in PK-PLUS or PS-TOOLS as if calling the panel on a telephone. If these numbers match, and the master username and password are correct, full duplex communication is permitted to the panel.
  • Listed to UL Standard 864.
  • Eliminates the cost of two dedicated phone lines. Only the customerís shared IP equipment is required.
  • Can use newer low-cost, non-analog, digital telephone services such as cable or fiber optics.
  • Increases connection supervision to the central station from the once-a-day test signal to once every 30 - 90 seconds.
  • Requires no change to the existing panel configuration. The IP Communicator connects directly to the primary and secondary analog panel telephone ports.
  • Fast alarm transmission (less than 10 second transmission time).
  • Works over any type of customer-provided Ethernet 10/100 Base network connection (LAN or WAN), DSL modem or cable modem.
  • Data transmits over standard contact-ID protocol but is secured with the industryís highest level of encryption (AES 512 bit).
  • Supports both dynamic (DHCP) or Public and Private Static IP addressing.
  • Supports dual-destination IP receiver address for high redundancy configurations: all signals are sent to a secondary address should the primary become unavailable.
  • User programmable UDP ports for flexibility and compatibility with firewalls and other network security components.
  • Supports an optional third maintenance receiver installed at the end userís facility that permits local alarm monitoring. Alarms are received simultaneously at both the central station and the customerís facility. A filter can be applied to annunciate specific alarm types such as
  • trouble-only events.
  • Supports upload/download using existing, familiar programming tools.
  • Two supervised inputs and two outputs
  • RJ45X Ethernet Termination
