I - Introduction I - 1. IPDACT-2/IPDACT-2UD Introduction The IPDACT-2(UD) is a device which, when connected to a security control panel, carries out three basic tasks: • To send over an IP network the alarm information sent by the panel to which this is connected. • To check the connectivity between the control panel and the alarms reception center. • In cases where it is not possible to transmit over the IP network, the IPDACT-2(UD) will stop intercepting the alarms from the panel.

Traditional security scenario Within the general user scenario, the IPDACT-2(UD) device is located in the client area, next to the control panel, intercepting the telephone line. This is displayed in Figure 2.
Figure 3. Network backup function scenario. I - 1.2. Operation Mode The IPDACT-2(UD) connected to the client control panel carries out two tasks: sending alarms from the panel and monitoring the connection with the IP receiver. The network backup option has implications in connection monitoring. The alarms reception center is composed of two VisorALARM devices, one main and the other backup. I - 1.2.1.
backup VisorALARM, to which it will now try and send the alarms, polls, etc. In cases where communication with this second device also fails, the telephone line access is returned to the control panel as if the IPDACT-2(UD) was not present. From this point on, the IPDACT-2(UD) will try to re-establish communications both with the main Teldat VisorALARM and the backup, communication with the main device taking priority.
I - 1.2.2. Alarm sending When the IPDACT-2(UD) has connectivity with the Teldat VisorALARM, the former intercepts the telephone line and processes all the incoming and outgoing calls taking place. The supported alarm sending protocol is Contact-ID.
I - 1.3. Additional features In order to simplify installation and updating of the registered IPDACT-2(UD)s, the IP VisorALARM receiver has additional facilities. To install new IPDACT-2(UD)s, the Teldat VisorALARM possesses configuration patterns associated to installer passwords. These permit you to automatically register new IPDACT-2(UD)s in the supported IPDACT-2(UD) list and at the same time enable the IPDACT-2(UD) to request the necessary configuration for start up.

II - 1.3. Turning IPDACT-2 into IPDACT-2UD The IPDACT-2 can be turned into an IPDACT-2UD by carrying out the following steps: • The device must be powered off. • Take the two berg headers out of the jumpers labeled as A and B. Figure 7. Closer view of A and B jumpers. IPDACT-2(UD) - Description II-9 Doc.DM385-I Rev. 4.
• Plug the UD daughter board into the main board, as showed in the following figure: Figure 8. Plugging the UD daughter board into the main board II - 1.4. IPDACT-2(UD)’s features The IPDACT-2(UD) basically consists of three elements: • The Analog Subscriber Line Circuit module (Telephonic module). • The V32 modem module (only for IPDACT-2UD). • The Control module. IPDACT-2(UD) - Description II-10 Doc.DM385-I Rev. 4.
Figure 9. IPDACT-2(UD) circuit details. The device CPU, memory and the LAN (identifiable through the RJ-45 connector) are found in the control module. This manages all the information procedure and the sending of the said information through an IP network over the LAN. The telephonic module physically supports the control and contains all the connection points with the control panel.
II - 2. LEDs The IPDACT-2(UD) has three groups of LEDs that provide information on the status of each type. These are displayed in the following figures: Figure 10. LEDs and pins for an IPDACT-2(UD) The LED labeled “ON” (LD1 for all the versions and releases) is green and indicates that the IPDACT-2(UD) is powered. Line status LED: Next to the relays there is a LED labeled LD6. In green this indicates that the telephone relays are active i.e. the IPDACT-2(UD) intercepts the telephone line.
• LED C LD4: alarm sending to the VisorALARM. ON: an alarm has been sent to the VisorALARM. OFF: a response has been received to the sent alarm. • LED D LD5: a bi-directional call to the alarm panel is in progress. ON: there is a bi-directional call to the alarm panel. The LED located next to the relays is off as the alarm panel has directly accessed the telephone line. OFF: no bi-directional call in progress. The panel is operating normally. II - 3.
• TO-AP: terminals proving telephonic connection to the control panel. This must be connected to the control panel connection which this is using to access the PSTN. • FROM-AP: terminals receiving telephonic connection from the control panel. This must be connected to the control panel connection which this uses to provide a line to the subscriber numbers. Connectors to the Public Switched Telephone Network • PSTN: access terminals to the public switched telephone network.
• OUT2 NO-C: terminals whose state is normal open. While the CPU is working properly these terminals are in a short circuit state. Short circuit is carried out through an electric-mechanical relay. The technical data for this can be found in appendix V. 3. Connectors associated to the inputs INPUT1 and INPUT2 • INPUT1 (Normally Open): terminals associated to the input number 1 (zone 1). This input is supervised and considered inactive when a 1K ohms resistance is detected between its ends.
Figure 12. LAN Connector and cable. Failure detection in the Ethernet interface is indicated by the analog output activating. II - 6. Console An asynchronous console is available for configuration / monitoring tasks. The IPDACT-2(UD) has a black RJ45 connected labeled CN1 for console connection. Consequently you will need a DB9 to RJ45 converter for the said connection which is provided by Teldat. The following figures show both the converter and the connector respectively. Figure 13.
RJ-45 connector Figure 14. Console connector details The access configuration is 9600 8N1 (8 bits, without parity, 1 stop bit). The environment is a simple one orientated to menus. The main menu is displayed in the following figure. - Main Menu Configuration a) Generic IPDACT-UD config b) Transmission Parameters c) Quick Install d) IP polling Monitoring e) General Info f) Remote Monitor g) Events h) IP Connectivity i) IP polling status z) Exit option: IPDACT-2(UD) - Description II-17 Doc.DM385-I Rev. 4.
III - Configuration NOTICE TO USERS, INSTALLERS, AUTHORITIES HAVING JURISDICTION, AND OTHER INVOLVED PARTIES This product incorporates field-programmable software. In order for the product to comply with the requirements in the Standard for Control Units and Accessories for Fire Alarm Systems, UL 864, certain programming features or options must be limited to specific values or not used at all as indicated below.
III - 1. Configuration modes The IPDACT-2(UD) can be configured both locally and remotely. 1. Locally: a. Telephone console: through a normal analog telephone connected to the TO-AP labeled connectors. b. Asynchronous console: from a PC with terminal emulated and a cable for this. 2. Remotely: a. From the VisorALARM IP receiver: through a register operation carried out by the IPDACT-2(UD) installer or through ‘update’ commands from the VisorALARM console. b.
access routers (in ADSL for example) have the possibility to act as a DHCP server, therefore in these environments, start up is immediate. The IPDACT-2(UD) functioning mode is as follows: when the device boots up, it tries to dynamically obtain the IP configuration from any DHCP server which is in the network. If this is achieved, it activates the said configuration and displays a message on the console. Teldat (c)2003 Config file... read Trying to get DHCP lease...

automatically deactivate and return to the initial position; if the relays are inactive then you return to the initial position. If at any point you hang up the phone, the telephonic console deactivates. III - 3.1. Configuration Configuring the various parameters is carried out through the access and register writing. A register is used for each parameter to be configured. Each register is made up of one or various fields. The number of fields and size of each depends on the type of register.
Backup VisorALARM IP address 21 8 (3+1) None Interval between keep-alives (seconds) with the backup VisorALARM 22 1 (5+1) 00010 Retries after failed keep-alives with the backup VisorALARM 23 1 (1+1) 3 Time between retries for keep-alive sendings (seconds) with the backup VisorALARM 24 1 (1+1) 1 Callback phone number 25 2 Variable, max. 15 characters, these must be the same.
The process for this is as follows: 1) switch off the IPDACT-2(UD), 2) short circuit the P1 jumper, 3) switch on the device, 4) maintain the P1 short circuited during the first burst from LEDs A, B, C and D (they light up and switch off consecutively) and open it half way through the second burst. If the process has executed successfully, the IPDACT-2(UD) will display a third burst indicating the default configuration has been activated. III - 3.1.2.
Remote configuration request This permits you to prompt the Teldat VisorALARM for the complete configuration required by the IPDACT-2(UD) in order to function. This register does not require you to configure any parameters and is limited to simply execute a request. In order to do this, you require the installer password. The configuration the IPDACT-2(UD) receives has been configured in the VisorALARM through a profile. The parameters common to a set of IPDACTUDs are in the said profile.
Emulated receiver LINE-ID digits SUR-GAR MLR200 3 SURGAR MLR2D 1 RADIONICS 6500 1 ADEMCO 685 1 The IPDACT-2(UD) permits you to code the LINE-ID field with up to 4 digits to anticipate a new alarm-receiver with up to 4 digits for LINE-ID.
The register is composed of one 5-digit field which admits values within the range of 00000 to 65535. The field contains a verification digit of the configured number. Default value is 00080. A 0 value is not permitted. IPDACT-2(UD) message encryption key This key is used to encrypt the messages sent to the Teldat VisorALARM. This must be entered twice in order to validate it. The register is composed of one field containing up to 16 DTMF digits. By default there is no configured value.
Time between send keep-alive retries (secs) (KEEP_ALIVE_RETRIES_TIME) Time measured between sending of keep-alive frames when a possible connectivity problem has been detected with the IP VisorALARM receiver. The register is made up of one single digit field. This is expressed in seconds and admits values between 3 and 9. The field contains a verification digit for the number. Default value is 3.
The register consists of one 1-digit field. This is expressed in seconds and admits values between 3 and 9. This field contains one verification digit for the number. Default value is 3. Number of digits for a telephone number This is the number of digits containing the telephone number which the control panel must dial to carry out a call. Depending on the country, if there is a switchboard, etc. This register is composed of one 2-digit field. Admits values between 1 and 15.
DHCP Client activation/deactivation The DHCP client is a device functionality permitting a DHCP server to assign an IP address and mask to the Ethernet interface plus an output gateway. The majority of the ADSL routers have a DHCP server so the IPDACT-2(UD) automatically configures and can connect to Internet through the router. The registrar consists of a one-digit field which admits a value of 1 to activate the client and a value of 0 to deactivate it. The field contains a number verification digit.
The register is made up of four fields corresponding to the 4 numbers of the IP address; this admits values between 0 and 255. Each number has a verification digit. The default value is: 000 000 000 000 Alarm encryption key for the IPDACT-2(UD) to the maintenance receiver This is the key used by the IPDACT-2(UD) to send alarms to the Teldat maintenance VisorALARM. So the configuration is valid, this must be repeated twice. The registrar consists of one field with up to 16 DTMF digits.
includes the passwords through which information is exchanged between the IPDACT-2(UD) and the VisorALARM, monitoring time, etc.

III - 4. Asynchronous Console You have the same access from the telephonic console as from the asynchronous console which also provides a better display of the processes taking place in the IPDACT-2(UD). The console is orientated to menus whose options permit the monitoring and configuration of the various IPDACT-2(UD) parameters. The asynchronous console access parameters are 9600 bps, 8 bits, without parity, 1 stop bit. The console is password protected. III - 4.1.
III - 4.3. IPDACT-2(UD) generic configuration Configures data pertaining to the IPDACT-2(UD) which is not related to the monitoring function and the sending of alarms. Data included here is the IPDACT-2(UD) IP address, the access gateway to the Teldat VisorALARM, the console access password, the events you wish to view, use of the check digit in the telephone console, etc. In the following figure, the default values are displayed.
