Alarm Annunciator

Introduction -

Any manufacturing process or equipment needs close monitoring, it is effectively done by employing Annunciation system. The system provides Audio and Visual indication of faults. DYNATEK make AB/ABM series is one of the most advanced, highly reliable and compact micro-controller based alarm annunciation system. The system offers annunciation with signaling and Auxiliary (open collector) output. Annunciation inputs are connected to potential free contacts. When fault condition occurs in any one of the connected inputs, annunciator indicates the fault by flashing respective window and energies Hooter Relay. The AB / ABM series inputs have site selection facility for “NO” (make to alarm) and “NC” (break to alarm). User can connect a Hooter through relay for Audio alarm. Facility to connect external “Test, Accept & Reset” push buttons is available on the back side terminals. Dual rate flashing is provided for differentiating the first & subsequent faults

Special Feature -

Accepting inputs from PLC or SCADA.
Now a days in many Automation projects Potential free contacts are sensed by PLC or log in SCADA. But some times for same inputs Annunciation is required at site, in that case lot of hard wiring is required . But this hard wiring can be eliminated by using DYNATEK Annunciator which accepts inputs from PLC by only twisted two wires on RS485 bus(Modbus Protocol).

Sailent Feature -

  • Based on latest “Micro-controller” technology.
  • Sleek, Compact design for reliable and accurate operation.
  • Series of super bright LED's instead of twin filament lamps for ultimate life at very less power consumption.
  • Fault input contacts NO/NC site selectable by means of DIP switches.
  • Opto-isolated all fault inputs, immune to noise disturbances.
  • Provision for external audible (Bell or Hooter) through potential free relay output contact.
  • Built-in mebran switches for Test, Accept and Reset functions.
  • Various Time delays 100ms,500ms,1Sec,2Sec,Provided for input faults to avoid noise or malfunction.
  • Two part connector ensures easy replacement and service at site.
  • Dual flashing rate for first fault 300 flashes / min. & Subsequent fault 60 flashes / min.
  • Any specific sequence available on demand

Computer Connectivity -

Up to 32 annunciator units can be surveyed & controlled by software package (SCADA with Modbus I/O Driver). Faults at each Alarm annunciator are logged by the software in a computer file, which can be used later for analysis. The connection from the PC to the units is via. 2 wire RS-485 Bus, using standard RS-485 twisted pair shielded communication cable.
