The monitoring/alarm system shall be microprocessor based and have the capability to monitor 2, 4 or 8 dry contacts/digital inputs with the option to include 2 analog inputs and 1 relay output. Each of these dry contact inputs shall be user configured through the front panel as normally-closed or normally-open. In addition, the monitoring/alarm system shall monitor the AC power and battery voltage continuously. Upon detecting an alarm on any of its inputs, a low battery condition or detecting loss of its AC power, the system shall begin dialing the first of up to 8 user-programmed telephone numbers.

The monitoring/alarm system shall speak user-recorded messages to the called party describing its location and the alarm conditions that are present. The monitoring/alarm system shall then verbally request that an acknowledgment be given. The called party shall acknowledge the call by momentarily depressing the '9' key on their telephone keypad.

If the system is not acknowledged during the call, it shall hang up, wait from 1 to 3600 seconds and then dial the next number in its phone list. If a successful acknowledgment occurs, the system shall give a sign-off message, allow access to program the system and hang up and then wait a user-programmed period of time for the alarm conditions to be corrected. If this period of time elapses and the alarm condition(s) still exist, the system shall begin the alarm notification cycle again.

The monitoring/alarm system shall support a relay output that shall remain energized as long as the system has any unacknowledged alarms. This output shall be available to allow for wiring to an external horn, buzzer, light or other local alarm device. Additionally, the user shall be able to remotely activate/deactivate the relay from a telephone keypad.

Physical Characteristics
EnclosureMinimum rating shall be NEMA 4X, flush mount or sub-panel mount.
Environmental LimitsTemperature: 32 to 158F (0 to 70C) Humidity: 0-90% non-condensing @ 104F
Power Supply9-12VDC provided by included 115VAC 60 Hz UL rated wall transformer.
Relay Output Rating.5A at 125VAC
DimensionsFront panel: 9.34"W x 6.72"H Enclosure: 8.2"W x 5.2"H x 3.6"D
Weight1.8 lbs. (.81kg)
Electrical ProtectionSolid state surge protection provided on digital input, analog input, serial port, and telephone circuitry. All fuses shall be solid-state automatic resettable requiring no maintenance
OptionsThe monitoring/alarm system shall have the following options: 4 additional digital inputs, 4 analog inputs, 2 relay outputs, NEMA enclosure, Cell phone
Field WiringAll I/O wiring shall use quick-disconnect pluggable connectors.
Digital InputsDry Contact/Digital Inputs shall be capable of interfacing directly to dry contacts or digital input signals with voltages up to 25VDC. No switches shall be required for any settings.
Analog InputsAnalog Inputs shall be capable of interfacing directly to 4-20ma, 0-20ma, 0-5V, 1-5V, signals. Each channel shall be programmable for range independently from any other channel on the same board. All channel range programming shall be via the keypad.
Relay OutputsThe relays shall be programmable to activate automatically when any channel goes into alarm, or upon local or remote request. The relay shall deactivate automatically when all channels have returned to the normal condition, upon a programmable timer expiring or upon local or remote request.
Performance Specifications
Telephone Numbers8 numbers up to 25 digits each. Numbers may include '*', '#', delays and dial tone detection.
Recorded Speech5 seconds per input channel message and System Identification message
Monitoring Capacity4 dry contacts standard, 8 dry contact and 4 analog inputs optional.
Speech TechnologyDigitally recorded voice messages plus permanent library.
Message RequirementsAlarm message for power failure, low battery and individual 5-second user recorded messages for each input channel and a single 5-second user-recorded message for the system identification.
Local ProgrammingThe system shall be programmable from the front integral keypad with programming prompts displayed on the integral LCD display.
Remote ProgrammingThe system shall be remotely programmable from a phone call-in. The user shall be able to program the telephone numbers, change the channel mode between Call on Alarm and Status Only.
Remote ControlsThe system shall allow a user to activate/deactivate the optional relay remotely.
Types of AlarmsThe monitoring/alarm system shall have the following separate alarm types:
System - loss of primary power and low battery
Digital - on or off for a specified period of time
Analog - a user-specified high or low limit for a specified period of time
All alarms shall be recorded with date/time in the event log.
Alarm AcknowledgementThe system shall provide acknowledgement of alarms from: the front panel, a phone that is called with an alarm condition, a dial-in from a remote location with appropriate access codes.
All acknowledgements will be recorded in the event log with the date/time of the acknowledgement, the method of acknowledgement.
Status ReportingA report of all current conditions of the system shall be available when the system is called. The report shall include the name of the unit and current state of all channels.
Event ReportingThe system shall have the capability of documenting all alarms, dial-out, dial-in, and alarm acknowledgement, and relay activations. The event report shall contain the last 100 events. Each event shall have the date/time of the event and the action performed.
Data LoggingThe system shall have the capability of logging all enabled analog channels. The values recorded shall be the daily Maximum and Minimum values and if the engineering units are GPM, the total flow for the day.
Channel ModeEach channel shall be individually programmed for alarm notification or status only.
Alarm NotificationThe system shall be capable of notifying of alarm conditions to a phone or digital pager.
Arming and DisarmingThe system shall be capable of being armed or disarmed manually or remotely. Arming or disarming shall be recorded to the event log..
Listen InIntegral microphone shall be enabled when called enabling the user to listen in to the remote site.
Battery BackupThe system shall have internal battery back-up capacity sufficient for an 8-channel monitoring/alarm system to perform its alarm call-out function for a minimum of 12 consecutive hours upon loss of primary power.
CertificationsThe monitoring/alarm system shall meet FCC Part 15, Class B and shall have valid FCC registration number per Part 68. The monitoring/alarm system shall meet Industry Canada Telecom standards and have a valid Industry Canada registration number.
ManufacturerAutomatic dialing monitor/alarm system shall be DiaLog Scout as manufactured by Antx, Inc., Austin, TX.
WarrantyTwo years of warranty shall be standard with the purchase of a new unit.
