Keltron’s Fire Dialer is a unique solution that interfaces with fire alarm control panels (FACPs) and enables an appropriate and instantaneous response from personnel at a life safety event-monitoring center. The Keltron Fire Dialer provides a remedy for today’s FACPs that cannot report point-specific and critical fire alarm information to an on- or off-site central station-style digital receiver through the dial-up public switched telephone network (PSTN).

How the Keltron Fire Dialer works
From the FACP, the Fire Dialer accepts data that was originally intended for a printer or CRT and converts it to a standard, digital receiver-compatible, alarm-reporting format using unique personality module software. The Fire Dialer enables intelligent and addressable FACPs that do not have a PSTN-compatible, point-ID capable, dialer/communicator, to report critical, point-specific fire alarm information. In the unlikely event of a serial port failure, the Fire Dialer’s seven input zones ensure that event signals are transmitted to indicate the global event type such as fire, trouble, water flow or supervisory. These signals are provided by contact outputs from the panel that are monitored through the ultra-reliable hard-wired connection provided by the zone inputs.

The Keltron Fire Dialer is comprised of a powerful microprocessor, an ASCII data-to-SIA converter and a seven-zone digital communicator. This unique communicator includes both seven hardwired zone inputs and an RS232 serial port.

Listings & Approvals
UL Listed

Primary alarm reporting is accomplished with the four EOL-resistor supervised zone inputs by monitoring the alarm, trouble, and optionally the water flow and supervisory output contacts from the FACP.
The RS232 port adds detector-specific reporting of all available additional information that enables accurate monitoring of event status, panel status, and fire progression.
Transmits signals in industry standard SIA format.
Test code call-in cycles are programmable and both normal and off-normal condition test codes are transmitted as appropriate. A manual test button is also included
Provides a programming utility that requires only a PC or laptop with serial port and a cable.
The RS232 port is personality-matched to the intended data source through a software interface. When the monitored FACP can support it, this may include communications supervision and interruption reporting.
Zones 5, 6 and 7 are available for loss of ac and battery fail indications, which are also reported using standard SIA event codes.
Local LEDs and audible devices clearly indicate Fire Dialer status.
General alarm and general trouble relay outputs provide trouble indication for local annunciation at the FACP per UL864.
