C2000 remote substation is a smart drive for use in security installations such as intrusion-alarm monitoring equipments and access by card or keyboard. It works integrated into the centralized system VIGIPLUS, maintaining operating autonomy from the areas it controls. You can install up to eight units per R-485 bus, which allows you to distribute their location and optimise the wiring.

CAPACITY

You can connect zone input modules, action output modules, reader controllers or control keyboards, with the following maximum capacity per substation:

  • Zone inputs: 128
  • Outputs: 64
  • Monitoring terminals: 8

To calculate an installation, you must take into account that the amount of addresses in the control bus must not exceed 32 items, bearing in mind that 16-zone equipment occupy 4 addresses.

You can install up to 8 substations per RS485 bus, meaning that the maximum system capacity is of 1,024 zone inputs and 512 outputs. If necessary, you can install several buses with the above characteristics.

COMMUNICATIONS

The substation has a RS232 port and a RS485 port linked to connect to the RS485 bus. This bus connects computers equipped with VIGIPLUS software and with the necessary substations.

The field-data management is done through the Control Bus, to which can be connected the input modules, the output modules, the reader controllers or the control keyboards. The maximum bus length is of 600 meters, with the possibility of placing signal amplifiers.

Both buses feature an automatic shutdown in case of failure, allowing the remote connection and disconnection to the bus.

INDICATORS
  • Alarm: Status of the general-alarm relay.
  • Tamper: Tamper-alarm status of remote-station cabinet.
  • Bus: Activity in the input card buses.
  • Power supply: Alarm status of the power-supply main circuit.
  • Battery alarm: Alarm status of the FA battery-charger circuit.
  • Bus-485: Indicates the status of the connection between the substation and the control bus.
SUPERVISION

Another RS485 bus allows up to 8 simultaneous keyboards for local-monitoring substations. The independence from the main bus connection to the computer ensures the autonomy of operation in case of failure of the latter.

POWER SUPPLY

It operates on 12-Vdc external power, with a consumption of 211 mA when in standby mode and a maximum consumption of 250 mA. It also has a voltage alarm and analogue telemetry of the same. Internally, the CPU has an independent battery that ensures the data in memory for 10 years.

EQUIPMENT

The substation is the CPU or intelligent element in the system, the hub where the different equipment are connected:

  • Input / output modules connected to the control bus.
  • Control-bus amplifier to increase the distance from the bus or for later conversion to fibre optic technology.
  • Local monitoring terminal on separate RS485 bus. The independence from the main bus ensures the autonomy of operation in case of failure.
  • Control keyboards that are connected to the control bus and may perform three key tasks: to control access, act as patrol point and also to work as control keyboards to enable / disable groups of areas (partitions) of the substation which it is connected to.
  • Control access reader, connected to the control bus.
INSTALLATION

The bottom of the equipment is prepared for easy installation on a DIN-standard mounting rail. The connection is made via pluggable terminal block.
