Alarm Distribution Shelf
The Alarm Distribution Shelf (ADS) permits building and facility owners to collect
The Alarm Distribution Shelf (ADS) permits building and facility owners to collect and distribute alarms to their tenants. This solution effectively isolates the individual alarms systems allowing potentially non-compatible systems to co-exist. It also features the ability to select which alarms points get forwarded as well as the capability to perform logical functions that can summarize and filter alarm data.

The ADS monitors up to 256 ground closures and can distribute those alarms to up to 20 users, each receiving 16 points. Additionally, a copy of the entire source alarms is provided for the facility owner so then can keep track of the site in its entirety.

This solution is modular in nature consisting of SMATs (32-point alarm input cards) and AOCs (32 relay output cards). Cards can be added to pre-designated position in the shelf as additional input or output capacity is required. Up to two shelves can be cascaded together for high density applications.

The ADS is housed in the 13 slot 460 shelf for 23" rack mounting. T/ADS, a Windows configuration utility, is provided to compile the mapping rules and to download them to the shelf.
