CAS-R|GUI Graphical User Interface comprises of a 15’’ resistive touch screen and 24V power supply unit within a hinged tamperproof lockable powder coated steel containment. The GUI receives, process and interprets signals from the addressable field devices and provides overall control of smoke and environmental ventilation within each address, zone, and group. The GUI touch screen provides user status view and interrogation, firefighting override and control, alarm logging and engineers access and is usually installed at the firefighter entrance lobby or the command and control centre.
The GUI screen displays essential site information including location and emergency contact details and provides access to site location plans and cabling schematics from a menu-driven operating system. In steady mode, the screen will display a home page and contact details, in environmental mode indications will display real-time clock (RTS) schedule, fan speed, and addresses activated, and in fire mode indication will display address active, fan and power status, and provide touch screen buttons for firefighter override, control and reset. The GUI incorporates a sounder and signal lights provide an audible and visual warning of fire and fault conditions.
The engineer’s mode provides access to the programming of the RTC environmental settings allowing scheduling to be set up at each address and zone. In addition, the smoke control cause and effect settings and statuses are able to be programmed into each addressable control device.
The GUI is CE marked and certified to and meets the most stringent requirements of BS EN 50130-4:2011 + A1:2014 Alarm systems. Electromagnetic compatibility. Product family standard: Immunity requirements for components of fire, intruder, hold up, CCTV, access control and social alarm systems, which enables it to perform as a robust life safety system in a modern building environment and eliminates risks from power surges and electromagnetic interference from nearby equipment.
The GUI includes a primary and secondary power supply and constantly monitors the health of the power supplies as required by BS EN 12101-10. The primary supply is provided by dedicated mains power which also maintains the battery backup system. If there is a main power supply failure the system will maintain its ability to control and operate the smoke control system for between 30 to 72hrs depending on the design requirements.
The GUI uses a robust protocol network and is able to accommodate up to three separate zones connected with a total of 80 addressable devices. It provides fire and fail signals via the addressable control panels, and BMS interface provides 8-way input, 8-way output of specific fire and fail conditions.
Designed in accordance with the standard ANSI/ISA-18.2-2009 Management of Alarm Systems the GUI provides an extensive event and alarm log within its flash card memory.
Remote Asset Monitoring (RAM) of the GUI provides new opportunities to revolutionise how the Smoke Control equipment is tested, serviced, and maintained once it has been installed and commissioned. Ready, fire and fail status may be transmitted via an ethernet connection which enables outgoing and incoming signals to monitor and interrogate the smoke control system.
