1 Overview
The Chiron IRIS Alarm over IP Dialler range offers a unique way to connect any
standard alarm dialler over an IP network, with backup over traditional PSTN or
ISDN dial-up networks and/or GSM/GPRS wireless networks if required.
An integral polling mechanism is included in all products to provide constant
monitoring of the communications paths so that any problems are reported to the
ARC.
Advanced features such as data calls and SMS messaging are also offered.
The full set of features of each model in the range is included in the Specification
section at the end of this User Guide.
The Installation sections of this Use Guide sets out a straightforward set of
instructions for the installer from the most simple installation for alarm
transmission over an IP network, through installations with communications
backup routes, to more advanced installations which use data call and SMS
messaging features of the IRIS range.

4 Installation – Alarm Transmission and Polling over IP
4.1 Preparation Prior to Installation
1. Check that the ARC to which connection is to be made supports Chiron’s IRIS
Alarm over IP system.
2. The IP address of the Polling Engine/Receiver at the ARC is required – this
will be a twelve digit number. Note – IP addresses are often provided as four
numbers separated by the “.” character, e.g. 192.168.3.34. This will need to
be converted to a twelve digit equivalent by adding leading zeroes to each
number to make them up to three digits each, and then removing the “.”s. The
address above becomes 192168003034.
3. The account (“chip”) number is loaded into the alarm dialler – this is the same
as required for any standard dialler installation.
4. The IRIS Dialler should be set to factory defaults. If it is believed that the
Dialler has been used before on another site and retains that configuration, it
should be set to defaults. The way to do this is describer in the Local
Configuration sections of the User Guide.
5. The IRIS Dialler has an Ethernet interface for IP network connection that uses
Automatic IP addressing (sometimes referred to as DHCP). If Fixed IP
addressing is required this can be set up on the IRIS Dialler as described in
the Local Configuration sections of this User Guide.
4.2 Physical Installation
1. It is recommended that the IRIS Dialler is located within the same enclosure
as the alarm dialler so that it can be powered from the battery backed power
supply, protected by the tamper switch and wired directly to the alarm dialler
without any external cabling.
2. Make allowances for the external wiring which will be required, i.e. IP network
connection via the Ethernet cable. Make sure external cable runs are
protected from tampering.
3. If the PCB version of the IRIS Dialler has been selected, use the Velcro fixing
strips to mount the Dialler where required.
4. Connect the 2-wire analogue line interface on the alarm dialler to the DIAL
input connector on the Dialler using the cable provided (Grey). This cable is
terminated at both ends with an RJ11 plug and if the dialler has a connector
block rather than an RJ11 socket, the cable can be cut and stripped. The two
centre cores should be used and the polarity of the connection is not
important.
Version 0.7
2/9/05
11
5. The Dialler has the facility to monitor the connection to the alarm dialler so
that it can detect disconnection and report this to the ARC. If this facility is
required, connect an 18K ohm sense resistor across the 2-wire analogue
interface on the alarm dialler. Note – for this feature to work correctly it is
essential that this resistor is connected at the alarm dialler end of the cable,
not the Dialler end.
6. Use the Ethernet cable provided (Cream) to connect the ETH interface on the
IRIS Dialler to the local router, hub, switch etc that gives access to the IP
network. The cable provided is terminated at both ends with an RJ45 plug that
is the standard interface used for Ethernet connections on most equipment.
Make sure this cable run is protected from tampering.
Note - it is essential that the Cream cable is used rather than the black
(ISDN) cable.
7. Connect the IRIS Dialler to the power source (normally the 12V battery
backed supply in the alarm panel) using the cable provided (white stripe is
negative). The polarity of connections is important for correct operation,
although the Dialler is protected against damage from the application of a
reversed polarity power supply.
8. When the power is connected correctly several LEDs on the Dialler come on
or start flashing.
4.3 Checking Network Connection
1. A short while after applying power (typically about 10s) the Ethernet interface
to the IP network connection can be checked.
2. If this interface is running correctly the ETH LED will be on steady (it may
flicker from time to time indicating data flow).
3. If the ETH LED is flashing on/off on a .5s/.5s cycle, then the Ethernet
connection has not synchronised. This could be for a number of reasons:
•
•
•
Cable not connected properly.
Cable connected to wrong device or port on device (e.g. router).
Device to which cable connected not switched on.
4. If the ETH LED flashes off briefly every 1s, then this indicates that it is
synchronised but has not been given an IP address. The IRIS Dialler may
need to be set with a Fixed IP address (see Local Configuration sections).
Consult the local Network Manager.
Version 0.7
2/9/05

4.4 Polling Configuration
1. To start up polling from the IRIS Dialler to the ARC, the Dialler must be loaded
with the IP address of the ARC and the account number of the dialler, both of
which can be loaded into the IRIS Dialler from the dialler.
2. Make sure the alarm dialler is set up with its account number. Set the IP
address of the ARC (i.e. twelve digits) into the ARC telephone number field in
the alarm dialler configuration.
3. Trigger the dialler to transmit an alarm. This dialler going off hook is indicated
by the DIAL indicator on the IRIS Dialler coming on. The IRIS Dialler will now
automatically pick up the account number and IP address from the information
transmitted by the dialler and start the polling process to the ARC.
4. Once the IRIS Dialler has successfully completed a poll to the ARC, the POLL
indicator comes on and remains on until the next poll. The installer can check
that polling is operating correctly by checking that the POLL indicator is on
and flickers off briefly (note – it may be so brief as to be unnoticeable) each
time a poll is made.
5. If the POLL indicator does not come on, this may be because the wrong
account number or ARC IP address have been entered. Set the IRIS Dialler
back to factory defaults, check the account number and IP address loaded
into the dialler and try again.
Alternatively, there could be some IP network connection problem making it
impossible for the IRIS Dialler to communicate with the ARC – consult the
local Network Manager.
6. The installer does not need to provide other parameters required for polling
e.g. polling interval and security key as these are loaded remotely by the ARC
when it receives the first polling call.
7. The configuration is stored by the IRIS Dialler in non-volatile memory and will
be retained even if power is removed.
4.5 Alarm Transmission Configuration
1. The Polling Engine at the ARC also acts as the receiver for alarm signalling. If
the dialler is only required to communicate with a single receiver (i.e. there is
no requirement for a backup receiver or second path) then no other
configuration is required.
2. Every time the dialler makes a call to transmit an alarm, the DIAL indicator on
the IRIS Dialler will come on.
Version 0.7
2/9/05
13
3. If a backup or second path is required, the twelve digit IP address of the
second receiver should be programmed into the second ARC telephone
number field of the dialler.
4. Having set up the alarm transmission as required, it is strongly recommended
that all routes are tested by generating alarm signals. During alarm call testing
a standard PSTN line monitor can be used to listen in to the alarm
communications including ‘handshake’ and ‘kiss-off’ tones to confirm correct
operation.
Version 0.7
2/9/05

5 Installation – Backup Transmission over PSTN or ISDN
PSTN or ISDN can be used as a backup for alarm transmission, providing an
alternative route to the ARC.
Polling does not operate over ISDN or PSTN as this would incur high call
charges.
The procedures described in this section are in addition to those described in the
previous installation section.
5.1 Preparation Prior to Installation
1. For backup alarm transmission over a traditional PSTN or ISDN path, the IRIS
Dialler communicates with a standard alarm receiver at the ARC. The
telephone number of this receiver will be required.
5.2 Physical Installation
1. If alarm communication over PSTN is required connect the PSTN interface on
the IRIS Dialler to the PSTN service using the Grey cable provided. This cable
is terminated at both ends with an RJ11 plug and if the PSTN service is
connected via a terminal block or Krone strip, the cable can be cut and
stripped. The centre two cores should be used and the polarity of the
connection is not important.
2. If alarm communication over ISDN is required connect the ISDN network
interface on the IRIS Dialler to the ISDN service using the Black cable
provided. This cable is terminated at both ends with an RJ45 plug and this is
the standard interface for ISDN services.
3. Make sure all cable runs are routed so as the protected against tampering.
5.3 Checking Network Connection
1. If the PSTN connection is connected correctly, then the PSTN LED on the
IRIS Dialler will be steady. If the PSTN LED is flashing in a .5s/.5s cycle, then
the Dialler cannot see the 50V feed from the PSTN line – check the wiring.
2. If the ISDN LED on the IRIS Dialler is steady then the ISDN connection is
synchronised correctly. If the ISDN LED is flashing in a .5s/.5s cycle then
there is some problem with the ISDN network or the cabling.
5.4 Alarm Transmission Configuration
1. To select routing of an alarm transmission over PSTN or ISDN, place an extra
digit “9” in front of the ARC receiver telephone number programmed into the
alarm dialler. This tells the IRIS Dialler that it should route the call over PSTN
or ISDN. Note – this method operates based on the fact that an IP address
Version 0.7
2/9/05
15
only ever starts with a “0”, “1” or “2’. The IRIS Dialler discards the “9” and dials
the call using the subsequent digits.
2. The IRIS Dialler will call over ISDN if this is connected or over PSTN if not.
The installer therefore detects the route required (PSTN or ISDN) just by
plugging in the appropriate cable.
3. Most alarm diallers allow two ARC numbers to be programmed which can be
used in primary/backup mode or for dual path signalling. Various
combinations of routing can therefore be set up, depending on the numbers
entered:
•
•
•
•
Version 0.7
Primary and secondary routes over IP.
Primary route over IP and secondary route over dial-up PSTN or ISDN.
Primary and secondary routes over dial-up PSTN or ISDN.
Primary route over dial-up PSTN or ISDN and secondary route over IP.

6 Installation – Backup Polling/Transmission over GPRS
GPRS can be used as a backup for polling and alarm transmission over IP
providing an alternative route to the Polling Engine/Receiver at the ARC. Alarm
transmission calls are routed to the same ARC receiver as would be used with
ISDN or PSTN.
The procedures described in this section are in addition to those described in the
previous installation sections.
6.1 Preparation Prior to Installation
1. A SIM card with GPRS support is required from the chosen GSM/GPRS
operator.
2. The operator will also provide what is referred to as an “APN” which is a name
(e.g. “orangeinternet”) of the gateway between the operator’s GPRS network
and the IP network. A User Name and Password may also be required.
These will be loaded into the IRIS Dialler.
6.2 Physical Installation
1. Connect the GSM antenna. Route the cable and fix the antenna so as to be
protected against tampering.
2. Insert the SIM card into the holder in the IRIS Dialler. If the cased version of
the Dialler is being used, the casing can be unscrewed with the four screws
under the self-adhesive feet to give access to the SIM card holder.
Note – the IRIS Dialler must always be disconnected from power when
inserting or removing the SIM card otherwise damage to the SIM card
can result.
6.3 Checking and Network Connection
1. The signal strength of the GSM connection can be examined using the Local
Configuration Console – see section below. The antenna should be positioned
to give best signal strength.
2. Before a GPRS connection can be made, the IRIS Dialler must register with
the GSM network. Until registration is complete, the GSM indicator on the
IRIS Dialler will flash on/off in a .5s/.5s cycle.
3. Enter the GPRS APN name, User Name and Password (as necessary) using
the Local Configuration Console (see section below).
4. If the LED stays flashing then the registration has not occurred. This could be
for a number of reasons:
Version 0.7
2/9/05
17
•
•
•
SIM card not fitted (or not valid)
Antenna not connected
Signal strength too low
6.4 Polling Configuration
1. Providing polling over IP has been configured as described in the section
above, the IRIS Dialler will automatically poll over GPRS to the same ARC IP
address if it cannot complete a poll over IP.
2. The POLL indicator indicates poll success as with polling over IP.
6.5 Alarm Transmission
1. If the IRIS Dialler is unable to make an alarm call over IP, it will automatically
retry to the same ARC IP address over GPRS.
Version 0.7
2/9/05

7 Installation – Backup Transmission over GSM
GSM can be used as a backup for alarm transmission, providing an alternative
route to the ARC.
Polling does not operate over GSM as this would incur high call charges.
The procedures described in this section are in addition to those described in the
previous installation section.
7.1 Preparation Prior to Installation
1. A SIM card supporting GSM voice calls is required.
7.2 Physical Installation and Checking Network Connection
1. Installation is as for GPRS as described above.
Note – the IRIS Dialler must always be disconnected from power when
inserting or removing the SIM card otherwise damage to the SIM card
can result.
7.3 Alarm Transmission
1. Transmission over GSM is selected by configuring the alarm dialler with one
of two leading digits before the telephone number as with PSTN and ISDN.
‘9’ – the IRIS Dialler will route the call over GSM only if PSTN and
ISDN are not available. This facility is used for standard GSM
backup of PSTN or ISDN lines.
‘7’ – the IRIS Dialler will route the call over GSM whether or not PSTN
or ISDN are available. This facility allows a second number
programmed in the alarm dialler to force a backup over GSM to
overcome possible situations where a PSTN line is available but
has been ‘locked’ by an incoming caller.

8 Advanced Installation - Data Calls
The Dialler supports data transmission either over ISDN (as a standard ISDN
Terminal Dialler) or over IP, for applications such as Video Surveillance. This
function is separate from the alarm-transmission and SMS features and can be
used simultaneously.
8.1 Installation
1. Ensure that the Dialler is connected to the communications network required,
either ISDN, Ethernet or GPRS, as described in the Installation section above.
2. Connect the terminal equipment (e.g. the Video Surveillance unit) to the
Dialler serial data port (labelled V24) using a standard modem cable. Note the
Dialler automatically detects whether the Local Configuration Console
software or another device is connected to the serial port. If the serial port has
been used for configuration there are no changes that need to be made.
3. Configuration of the Dialler for data calls is via Hayes format commands. This
can normally be implemented from the attached. The Hayes commands
required for the different networks are shown in the section below.
4. Make a test call – the following activity on the LEDS should be seen:
•
TR is on (TR may go off temporarily when the call is cleared).
•
RD and SD flash to show the transfer of data.
Version 0.7
2/9/05
20
8.2 Configuration
Configuration required for data calls can normally be done by the attached
equipment using Hayes commands. Depending on the network being used, the
commands are as follows:
8.2.1 General
Command
Function
&F
S0=1
S0=0
Sets defaults for data port
Sets auto-answer on (if required)
Sets auto-answer off (if not required)
8.2.2 Calls over ISDN using V.120 Rate Adaption
Command
Function
%A2=2
Selects V.120 calls over ISDN
The number dialled should be the ISDN telephone number of the destination.
8.2.3 Calls over Ethernet using TCP/IP
Command
Function
%A2=12
%I6=abcde
Selects TCP/IP calls over Ethernet
Sets Dialler TCP port number to
abcde (must be five digits from)
Sets called TCP port number to fghij
(must be five digits)
%I7=fghij
The number dialled should be the IP address of the destination (12 digits). It is
also possible to include the destination TCP port number using the string :fghij
immediately after the dialled number, in which case the %I7 register does not
need to be set. An example of such a Hayes dial string is:
ATD192168001034:01233<CR>
This dials IP address 192.168.1.34 on port number 1233.

9 Advanced Installation - SMS Messaging
SMS support on the IRIS Dialler range provides eight pin inputs that can be used
to generate SMS messages and four relay outputs that can be switched on and
off by incoming SMS messages. These features can be used for control and
monitoring applications, even in locations where no telephone line is present, for
example:
•
•
•
Control of door lock to allow a caller to enter.
Switching heating on and off.
Alert on refrigerator failure.
9.1 Installation
1. Select and connect the inputs required using the screw terminal blocks on the
IRIS Dialler. Note that inputs 1 to 4 generate messages on the input signal
going low and inputs 5 to 8 generate messages on the inputs going high. The
block of eight screw terminals next to the pin inputs can be used as reference
ground connection if the input signal comes as a pair of wires.
2. Select and connect the outputs required using the screw blocks on the IRIS
Dialler. Note that outputs A and B are normally closed and outputs C and D
are normally open.
3. If a confirmation SMS message is required when an output is activated, it is
suggested that the output is also connected to a spare input. This input can
be configured to send a message back to the command originator.
9.2 Configuration
Configuration of the SMS functions is done from the Local Configuration Console.
Note the following:
1. For input pins both a message and number must be entered otherwise the
input will not generate a message when activated.
2. It is recommended that message text contains information about the physical
location of the Dialler, as well as the event. This means that the source of the
message is immediately clear at the receiving phone.
3. Incoming messages to activate the outputs will be checked against the text
string and calling number entered. If no text is entered, no action will be taken
on a received message. Calling number checking is an optional security
feature and can be disabled by entering nothing in the number field.
Version 0.7

Management calls using a standard modem and the alarm panel’s standard
management software for upload/download are supported by the IRIS Dialler.
Calls can be originated by the dialler and routed via the Dialler over IP or over an
ISDN or PSTN dial up link. Alternatively calls can be originated from the
management centre and routed to the dialler via IP, ISDN or PSTN.
Calls over IP use Voice over IP (VOIP) technology to transport the modem
signals over the IP network.
For calls originated by the dialler, the Dialler routes the call depending on the
format of the telephone number programmed into the dialler:
•
For routing of calls over IP, the telephone number programmed into the dialler
must be the IP address of the receiver prefixed with the digit “8”.
•
For routing of calls over ISDN or PSTN, the telephone number programmed in
the dialler must be telephone number of the receiver prefixed with the digit “9”
‘9’. The routes over PSTN or ISDN , depending on which network is
connected.
Calls made into the Dialler either over IP, ISDN or PSTN are routed to the DIAL
port that will send the ring signal to the dialler in the normal way.
For calls over ISDN or PSTN just connect the calling modem into a normal PSTN
socket and set the number to dial to the telephone number of the IRIS Dialler to
be called.
For calls over IP connect via another IRIS Dialler at the calling end. Connect the
calling modem to the DIAL socket of the Dialler and ensure the called number is
set to the appropriate IP address of the remote Dialler plus the “8” prefix, as
described above.
Note that if calls are being made into the Dialler over IP, it will need to be
allocated a fixed IP address to the Dialler. Please consult the local Network
Manager.

12 Local Configuration with a Telephone Handset
Some of the configurations that may be required by the Dialler can be entered by
using a standard telephone connected to the ‘DIAL’ port in place of the alarm
dialler. Configurations are entered using ‘*’ commands, as follows:
12.1 Dialler Default
To set default configuration use: *9**1234567890#.
12.2 IP Address
By default the Dialler will automatically negotiate its IP address with the IP
network. If a fixed address is required (this address will be allocated by the IT
manger), the following commands are used to set the IP address and related IP
parameters:
•
Own IP address: *65*0*nnnnnnnnnnnn# (12 digits)
•
Sub-net mask: *65*1*nnnnnnnnnnnn# (12 digits)
•
Default Gateway address: *65*2*nnnnnnnnnnnn# (12 digits)
To set back to automatic IP address, use *65*0*#.

13 Troubleshooting
If problems are experienced, the following guide will be off assistance. Please
also refer back to the installation instructions above and check that the correct
procedures have been followed.
Symptom
Possible Causes
All LEDs off.
No power applied. Check power connection and
polarity. On the cable provided, the white stripe
indicates negative.
No 50V signal applied to dialler. Check cabling
between dialler 2 wire connection and DIAL port on
Dialler.
Dialler reports a
Telecom fault.
POLL LED does not go
on or stay on.
Also note that if the Dialler has no network
connections (neither Ethernet, ISDN, PSTN nor GSM)
it will drop the 50V applied to the dialler to indicate a
line error.
The Dialler is configured with the wrong Polling Name
or Polling Engine IP address. If it is believed that there
has been an error in the configuration of the Dialler, it
should be defaulted and the procedure repeated.
There is a cabling or IP network problem – check the
cabling and connections.
Dialler does not
successfully signal an
alarm.
There is a polling key mismatch between the ARC and
the Dialler. Set Dialler back to default and repeat
setup for polling. Also reset ARC entry for this device.
The dialler is using the wrong number to call. Check
the receiver number settings in the dialler as
described in the Installation section above.
For calls over IP and GPRS a twelve digit number
starting in 0, 1 or 2 should be set.
For calls over ISDN, PSTN or GSM the phone
number preceded by 9 should be set.
The Local Configuration
Console does not work.
Version 0.7
2/9/05
The selected communications path is not available –
check cabling and network connections.
Cabling problem between the PC and the Dialler.
Check that the correct COM port on the PC and a
standard modem cable are being used. The TR LED
on the Dialler should be on, and the RD and SD LEDs
should flicker as data is transferred between the
Dialler and the PC.

15 Conformance and Safety
15.1 Conformance
The IRIS Diallers comply with the following European Directives:
1999/5/EC
72/23/EEC
89/336/EEC
(Radio & Telecoms Terminal Equipment Directive)
(Low Voltage Directive)
(Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive as amended by
92/31/EEC)
15.2 Conformance to EN50131 and EN50136
The IRIS Diallers are compatible with the requirements of European standards
prEN50131-1 (Alarm systems – Intrusion and hold-up systems Part 1: System
Requirements) (Dated Feb 2004) and EN50136-1-1 (Alarm systems – Alarm
transmission systems and equipment) (January 1998 with Amendment 1
August 2001) as follows:
The IRIS Diallers conform to Environmental Class II.
The IRIS Diallers are compatible with Security Grade 4 providing:
•
All other system components are also Grade 4 compatible.
•
The IRIS Dialler is mounted within a Grade 4 enclosure protected by
tamper switch and battery backed power supply.
•
If the PCB variant of the Dialler is used, it should be protected against
static discharge by being located within an enclosure such that no part
of the PCB is less than 1mm from the enclosure inner surface.
•
Polling and Alarm Transmission to the ARC is over IP (via the Ethernet
connection) or over GPRS. The ARC must also set the polling period
such that a communications fault will be detected with 20s.
•
The 2-wire connection between he IRIS Dialler and the alarm panel is
monitored – see Installation section. The ARC should enable
monitoring of this connection.
Note –
In this case the Dialler complies with the highest level of Alarm
Transmission System Performance Criteria (ATS6).
If GPRS is used as a backup communications path this path
should be tested with a test call at least every month.
Version 0.7
2/9/05
33
If PSTN or ISDN are used as a backup then the system
complies with Performance Criteria ATS 4. The ARC should
enable monitoring of this connection.
The IRIS Diallers have been assessed and certified against these standards by
Telefication B.V.
15.3 Safety
Care should be taken that when interconnecting telecommunications equipment
that only like interfaces are interconnected to avoid safety hazards.
The interfaces on the IRIS Dialler have the following safety classifications:
ISDN Interface: TNV operating at SELV and suitable for connection to Basic rate
ISDN interfaces provided by a Public Telecommunications Operator or a Private
Branch exchange or similar equipment.
PSTN Interface: TNV suitable for connection to analogue PSTN interfaces by a
Public Telecommunications Operator or a Private Branch exchange or similar
equipment.
Tel Interface: SELV suitable for connection to the TNV interface of a single line
telecommunications equipment such as telephones, faxes etc.
Data Interface: SELV suitable for connection to SELV interface on a data
terminal such as a PC COM port.
Power Interface: SELV for connection to a 12V DC supply.
Inputs and Outputs: SELV for connection to alarm output and input pins.
TNV (Telecommunications Network Voltage) is defined as a circuit that
under normal operating conditions carries telecommunications signals (70.7V
peak or 120V dc maximum).
SELV (Safety Extra-Low Voltage) is defined as a secondary circuit which
is so designed and protected that under normal and single fault conditions the
voltage between any two accessible parts does not exceed a safe value (42.4V
peak or 60V dc maximum).
