TrueSite Workstation Operation
Operation. When fire alarm network status changes
occur, the screen displays the type and location of the
alarm (or other activity) and the appropriate header
buttons appear. In the historical log screen below in
Figure 1, Fire, Priority 2, Supervisory, and Trouble
buttons are shown with an active Trouble indicated.
Programmable Activity Timeout allows an
unattended monitor to revert to the login screen when the
configured time period expires.
Individual User Preferences appear when the user
logs in. Options include: Font Size (default or large);
Toolbar Size (small or large); Interface Theme (MS
Office 2003 or System); Floating Window Options (select
whether to show Menu bar or show Tool bar).
Historical Log and List Details. Figure 1 below
shows historical log details. The display format is similar
to the display for active list items such as the alarm list.
Displayed information can be sorted on-screen by each
category shown (number, time, date, point name, etc.).
List information can be reviewed on the screen, printed at
a local or remote system printer, or can be written to an
electronic file for compatibility with spreadsheet and
database programs.
Customized Response. Custom alarm and trouble
messages can be added and field edited to provide operator
response assistance. Point specific information, such as
hazardous material storage and lists of people to notify, can
be automatically or selectively displayed.
Sample Screens. Figure 1 (below) is representative of
historical log screen detail. Figure 2 (on page 4) is
representative of a system graphic screen with icons
representing the devices of interest. Screen choices can be
configured per system preference. However, when using
multiple optional monitors, multiple windows can be
visible simultaneously for operator convenience.
Ease of Operation. With touchscreen monitors, the
operator touches the screen area in alarm (or uses the
mouse control) to access a more detailed view of the
alarmed zone or device. With the proper password access,
the operator has the ability to acknowledge alarm and
trouble conditions, activate signal silence, and perform
system reset directly from the workstation screens.

Multiple Access Levels. Operator access level is
determined during log-in. Select functional access to
match the training and responsibility of the operator.
Operators with additional TrueSite Workstation and fire
alarm network training may be qualified for access to
sensitive areas. For operators who are primarily
concerned with immediate facility security, a lower level
access will provide the information necessary for proper
response but will not allow access to key parameters that
determine overall system/network operation.
Custom Banner and Main Screen Background. The
banner area shown with a Simplex logo in Figure 1 can be
customized (bitmap area is 2250 x 68 pixels). The main
screen background (viewable prior to login) can be
customized with a bitmap of up to 1000 x 525 pixels.
Action Messages. In addition to screen text or graphic
information, the operator can be presented with specific
action messages that provide emergency response
information and directions. These action messages are
easily field edited for local requirements. The appropriate
action message in the screen below would be located in
the Acknowledge dialog box.
Auto-Jump to Graphics or Alarm List. Select
whether activity should cause a jump to a list format or to
the associated graphic screen.
Supported Graphics Formats:
 DWG Import Formats: AutoCAD R9, 10, 11-12, 13, 14,

provide easily recognizable site plan and floor plan
information. The level of detail can be customized for the
specific facility to easily and accurately direct the
operator to the immediate area of interest.
Graphic Screen Controls. The graphics portion of the
screen below is shown as a main screen but could be set
to float and be moved to another monitor if desired. Icons
can be added to identify the location and type of the
device of interest and the graphics control toolbar (located
at the top of the graphic) can be used to pan and zoom for
more precise detail. Programmable coverage zones can be
added with selectable area and zoom level. A fixed area
site plan (key plan) with action buttons and screen locator
can be added as shown below. Pan and zoom are tracked
by a green rectangle in the key plan.
Individual Point Service Access
Qualified Operator Detail Access. The workstation
operator’s interface provides service level access to
network information that is not normally “public.” Network
“private” point information can be accessed using the SetHost feature, and logging into the database of the network
and node of interest. With this operation, individual point
information can be accessed and controlled as required by
qualified service personnel with proper password access.

Graphical Network Status Views. Automatic,
built-in diagnostics are available to provide graphical
views of Network topology and Network status. Missing
communications links due to wiring breaks or shorts as
well as inactive network nodes are indicated clearly to
guide in returning the system to normal. Information
screens are available to provide detail about each specific
network node. Network level functions such as
timekeeper node and monitor node are indicated as well
as identification of the node being used for the diagnostic.

Multiple Network Connections
When extensive network expansion or interconnection of
existing, separate networks is required, up to seven (7)
network loops may be connected to the TrueSite
Workstation. Each network loop is connected to its own
network interface module allowing the workstation to
appear as a node in each individual loop.
Network
Loop 2
With a multi-loop network connection, the TrueSite
Workstation is a node member of each network loop with
up to 98 additional nodes per loop. This allows up to 686
total nodes and the TrueSite Workstation Server (687 total)
to be interconnected.

DACR Interface
DACR Support. For control panels that are not network
compatible or may be too remote for a network connection,
the TrueSite Workstation can communicate to a compatible
DACR (Digital Alarm Communicator Receiver) via an
RS-232 port (requires DACR Interface software option
4190-5060, see compatibility list below). Remote control
panels equipped with DACTs communicate their local event
status (or individual point status if capable) to the DACR
using dial-up telephone and optional TCP/IP connections.
The DACR forwards the individual panel status to the
workstation for information processing and history logging.
TrueSite Workstation Points for DACR Accounts.
Workstation points are associated with a DACR account
number. Standard event points have up to a 19 character
label for each point. CID point reporting has up to a 40
character label. DACR event categories include: Fire
Alarm, Priority 2 Alarm, Supervisory Alarm, Trouble,
Utility Status, and Unknown Point (CID format only).
An occurrence of these events will be prefixed with the 19
character account label.
Public Points. The Workstation can be selected to make
DACR associated points public to the fire alarm network
for monitoring by other network nodes if required.
DACR Status Tracking. The DACR connection to the
workstation is supervised with the following trouble
conditions tracked by the workstation: Communications
Loss, (between DACR and workstation), Initialization
Failed (the workstation to DACR connection did not
successfully establish), Unknown DACR Message, (the
DACR sent a message that was not understood by the
workstation), and Unknown DACR Account (the account
information received does not correlate to an workstation
point).
Supervision of DACTs. The workstation is programmed
to expect and log periodic supervisory transmissions from
the DACTs via the DACR. Failure to receive a supervisory
transmission will cause a trouble event on the TrueSite
Workstation.
Event Restoration. When the workstation receives an
event restoration from the DACR, it restores that point’s
status record to normal. The workstation has the ability to
manually restore a point to normal in the event that a
restoration occurred that was not forwarded to the
workstation.
Compatible DACRs. Compatibility includes:
 Bosch Model D6600*, D6100i, and D6100Ipv6
 Sur-Gard Model System I, II, III, and IV
 AES Intellinet 7705i Wireless-to-Internet receiver
 Sur-Gard Model MLR2-DG (legacy product)
* Note: For UL 864 listed Fire Proprietary Supervising Station Operation
that uses a DACR, select the Bosch D6600 with CID format and
4190-8403 (see page 7).
DACR Events. The TrueSite Workstation handles DACR
points as though they were network points. Graphics can be
displayed and point status changes can be easily
acknowledged. Point acknowledgement occurs locally on the
workstation since communications between the DACT and
DACR are from DACT to DACR only. Remote panels need
to be Acknowledged, Silenced, or Reset at the individual
panel. Point events are entered into the workstation history
log as part of its 500,000 event storage capacity.
Supported DACR/DACT Formats. Compatible DACRs
support standard reporting formats including: ADEMCO
CID (Contact ID format), SIA Level 1, BFSK; and 3/1 and
4/2. A CID account can be configured on the TrueSite
Workstation to be either panel event reporting or with
individual point reporting. The other formats provide panel
event reporting only.

Server/Client Operation
Supervised or Unsupervised Remote Clients.
Remote Clients can be designated as Supervised or
Unsupervised. When Supervised, the connection is
monitored by the TrueSite Workstation and a loss of
connection is audibly reported at both ends along with a
dialog screen. When unsupervised, only the client end
displays a trouble dialog indicating disconnection from
the Server. Remote clients may be laptop computers or
other computers used for other functions and are
periodically connected to query system status or create
reports.
TrueSite Workstation Computer. The TrueSite
Workstation computer provides the functions of the
Server and the system configuration tools. To access the
desired features, a system/job specific security service
dongle is supplied and is required. For systems not using
Remote Clients, the setup of the TrueSite Workstation PC
is similar.
Remote Client. For access to TrueSite Workstation
information at a remote location, a compatible computer,
connected via a Local Area Network (LAN) is equipped
with Remote Client software. There are two types of
Remote Clients, those with a restricted feature set (not
capable of control); and those with a password protected
feature set (capable of control). Refer to the interconnection
reference diagram below and refer to data sheet
S4190-0018 for additional information.
Remote Client Connections. The TrueSite
workstation server supports a maximum of twenty (20)
Supervised or Unsupervised remote clients, each capable
of being on-line simultaneously.
