Convenient incorporation of fire detection into your building management system without compromise.
Open Connect Gateway is an embedded device which sits between the Fire Alarm Control Panel and the BMS system.
Open Connect Gateway gets its Fire Alarm Information Via RS232 or RS485 from a special interface board located in one of the Fire Alarm Control Panel nodes. Open Connect Gateway can send its BMS information in a number of standard transmission methods to the BMS system.
Open Connect makes this possible without any unique software being written and using a simple, off-the shelf product.
The Open Connect Gateway takes the information from your fire alarm control panel and connects it to your building management system using standard BMS protocols. These include: Modbus , BACnet and LonWorks.
SHIELD Fire Alarm Control Panels using Shield Protocol are capable of integration with the Open Connect Gateway.
