Simplex Time Recorder Company - 4100 Computer Port Protocol
The Simplex Time Recorder Company - 4100 Computer Port Protocol driver allows the
FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over either RS-232 or RS-485 using Simplex
Time Recorder Company - 4100 Computer Port Protocol.
This driver is designed to connect to a Simplex 4100 panel equipped to support the “4100
Computer Port Protocol” as defined in Simplex’s document 950-004 Revision E dated 28 July
2000. The implementation provides a selected subset of protocol functions and subset of
functionality for each of these selected functions. It is important to note the exclusions and
limitations described in this document.
The driver is a capable of parsing and storing information sent by a panel in the form of
unsolicited messages which are typically generated when there is a state change in the panel or
one of the connected devices. The driver is also capable of polling for point and panel status
data and some additional data such as the panel’s time and revision information. In addition the
driver is capable of setting some control points in the panel – acknowledging and resetting
alarms and writing data (where permitted) to some analog and discrete points.
This is a client only driver and is not capable of emulating a Simplex Panel. Server emulation is
provided for test purposes only and is not supported or documented.
1.1.
Supported Panel Types
The driver has been tested against 4020, 4100 and 4100U panels. There is no difference in
the protocol format between the various panels. What changes is the panel firmware version
and with the firmware changes the supported function set changes.
1.2.
Simplex Panel Firmware Revision vs. Supported Functionality
This driver was primarily tested against a 4020 panel with firmware revision 9.2. Beta testing
against a 4100 panel with a firmware revision 10.x was also performed.
A grid of firmware revision number and supported functions is provided by Simplex. This
grid is available from Simplex. Request the ‘CPP Revision Compatibility’ Table.
All the functions described in this manual are supported for firmware revisions 10 or higher.
For revisions between 9.2 and 10, the ‘Earths’ and ‘Value’ functions described in this driver
are not supported by the Simplex Panels. For revisions lower than 9.2, then functions
supported need to be determined by trial and error. We are fairly confident that all the
functions supported by version 9x are also supported by versions 8x of the panel firmware.

Provided by Supplier of 3rd Party Equipment
To enable the 4100 Protocol, the 4100 system, supplied by the user, must have a free RS232 port dedicated for use with the computer device. In most cases, this is not included in
the base configuration of the product provided by The Simplex Time Recorder Company,
and must be added as a sales option. All 4100 systems limit the number of computer ports
active at one time in a system. To determine the limit for the specific product configuration,
refer to the specific product specifications, or contact a Simplex sales representative.

Client Side Driver Tables
A driver table is used to extend a table of values/attributes that have been hard coded into
the driver. It is possible to extend the tables using CSV file parameters.
Additional information on the use of these tables may be found in Appendix A.8
4.4.1.
SHOW Response Attributes Driver Table
Column Title
Protocol
sim4100_Attr_Name
Function
The protocol must be specified on each row
of a driver table.
The SHOW command response consists of
a number of attributes and their current
state/ values.
Use this parameter to add a new attribute to
the table.
Legal Values

include an equal
sign.
If the response contains the attribute defined
above, its current state/value must be stored
at offset x in the associated Data Array.
sim4100_Attr_Offset
May not be zero.
Use this parameter to define x. Take care to
leave enough space for those attributes
which have multiple values.
This parameter tells the driver how to
convert the current state/value for storage in
the Data Array. For example, the driver
cannot store the state ‘Normal’ . By

One Xpoint Map Descriptor is required for storage of Xpoint messages from each card. For a given card, the driver uses a mapping
function based on the point-subpoint address to determine the array location to store the state for the c-p-s.
This Map Descriptor can be used to store point status data when the FieldServer receives an unsolicited message from the Panel
containing point status information (Xpoint messages). The panel sends an Xpoint message each time a point’s status changes to
any non-normal state. Using these Map Descriptors will ensure that the FieldServer is constantly updated with the latest panel status
information. The Map Descriptor’s are passive so they can be used in a joint strategy with the clist function (section 4.4.1) to keep
track of a point’s status. Notes in Appendix A provide more information
4.5.6.

driver stores the values in consecutive array elements.
Ensure that the Map Descriptor’s usage of the Data Arrays
is spaced appropriately.
Each type of Simplex device reports a different set of
attributes and attribute states/values. Refer to Appendix
A.8 for more information. The driver analyses the response
from the poll. When an attribute is recognized, the attribute
state is evaluated. If this is recognized then the driver
stores a value, corresponding to the attribute state, at an
array location corresponding to the attribute. 4.4 provides
additional information. The driver can only recognize
attributes and attribute states that it is programmed to
recognize.
Using the information provided in Appendix A.8, set the
length of the Map Descriptor equal to array position of
highest attribute.
Ensure that Map Descriptors using this function do not use
overlapping areas of the Data Arrays. See example in
Appendix A.19.
This command allows the user to manipulate the status
and/or priority of a control point
The port access level must be set appropriately in the
Simplex device otherwise the device returns an error.
This command allows the user to:
• Manipulate the status and/or priority of a control point
• Modify the value of an analog pseudo point.
• Set the sensitivity of a TrueAlarm sensor
• Set the rate-of-rise threshold of a TrueAlarm heat
sensor
• Select the audio channel of a speaker circuit

Description
Map Descriptor’s which use this function do two things;
Firstly, they register a c-p-s with the driver.
Secondly they define a Data Array name and element
range that must be set to zero when the ClearAll function is
activated.
Up to 4 c-p-s’s may be registered per FieldServer. These
registered points are monitored each time a Clist response
is obtained as well as each time the panel sends an
unsolicited Xpoint message with a state change. If one of
these messages reports a ‘U1’ state for a registered point
then the driver processes all ‘ClearAll’ Map Descriptor’s
and sets all the associated array values to zero.
An example of the use of ClearAll is provided in section
6.12 example 9.

Appendix A.3. How to use Data Arrays to map to/from Card-Point-Sub
addresses
Some commands derive a card-point-sub address by inspecting a FieldServer Data Array.
Others receive data from a device with a card-point-sub address and modify the data in an
array based on the card-point-sub address. This section explains how to make the
connection between an index into a Data Array and a card-point-sub address.
In a simple world the Data Array index would be
Index = card * max point per card * max sub point per point + point * max sub point per point
+ sub
Where max point per card and max sub point per point could be large numbers.
As you can imagine this would require huge sparse Data Arrays. To reduce the Data Array
size the FieldServer uses a mapping algorithm which can be optimized based on the
addresses of the Simplex devices. The map is manipulated by using the
sim4100_card/point/sub parameter values.
Example:
Consider the following Map Descriptor fragment.
…,
sim4100_func, sim4100_card, sim4100_point, sim4100_sub, data_array_offset
10,
Xpoint,
5,
10,
0
If data is received for point <c>-<p>-<s> = 9-0-0
This data will NOT be processed because the card number does not match the value of the
sim4100-card
If data is received for point <c>-<p>-<s> = 10-20-0, however, the data will be processed.
The array location is derived using the following formula (sim4100_sub is to be read as the
“number of sub-points per point”; sim4100_card’s value will be ignored.)
Location
= data_array_offset + <p> * sim4100_sub + <s>
= 0 + 20 * 10 + 0 = 200
Appendix A.4. Simplex Point Status Data Format
When a point status is obtained the FieldServer will write one byte of data to a Data Array.
The byte will contain the following information. Because each point can report a number it
only makes sense to use Data Arrays that are not bit arrays.

Appendix A.5. Simulation of the Xpoint command
The following notes apply only to FieldServer Technologies engineers.
The sim4100_func=xpoint keyword is used to parse unsolicited point status change
messages sent by Simplex devices. For simulation purposes it a wrbc version of this
function has been implemented to test the response parsing ability of the slave portion of the
driver.
Appendix A.6. Application Supervision Messages
Section 7.2 of the Simplex 4100 protocol describes unsolicited messages from a Simplex
device. This sim4100_func=super wrbc command is used to test the driver's ability to parse
these messages.
The 4100 protocol supports a periodic application supervision message. This supervision
poll is performed if the TERMINAL flag POLL is set (COMPUTER DEFAULT). The objective
of the supervision poll is two-fold:
• It is the only periodic message that can be expected to be sent by the 4100, thus
establishing the basis for supervising the line.
• To ensure that all layers of the two systems are operating properly and able to respond
to messages. For example, in a PC implementation that uses a Terminate-and-StayResident (TSR) device driver to implement the protocol, the answer to the supervision
poll should be done in a way such that if the program exits to DOS, the TSR will not
continue to indicate to the 4100 that everything is OK, when in fact, the PC will not be
able to annunciate an alarm.
Appendix A.7. Driver Stats
Appendix A.7.1.
How the Driver counts bytes and messages
received and transmitted.
"Ack" messages sent/received by the driver in response to read/write messages are
NOT counted as messages. However, the single byte produced by these messages is
included in the byte count.
The driver does not count DLL layer messages as messages.
The driver counts bytes at the DLL layer. The byte count includes the bytes that wrap
application layer messages, acks and the port supervision and responses messages.
The driver counts messages at the application layer.. This means that if you use
RUINET to monitor the FieldServer and you view the Map Descriptor’s the byte count
stats will always be zero.
Some Map Descriptors require data in the Data Arrays to trigger a write command. An
example is the "Ack" command. The driver does not count one of these messages as
being sent until the array actually triggers a poll to be sent.

Driver Exposed Stats
The driver is capable of exposing statistics about its behavior in a Data Array. It is
necessary to create a Data Array with name sim4100-stats as per the example below
and it will be updated by the driver. Note that the stat number corresponds to the offset.
Take care not to poke any values into the 1st 10 elements of this Data Array (offsets 0 to
9). Doing so will trigger internal diagnostics and may interfere with normal operation.
A different set of stats is maintained for each connection. Each connection uses 100
elements of the data array. Ensure the array length is large enough if the port number is
large.

Appendix A.8. SHOW Function Attributes and Attribute States
The Show command provides an ASCII response formatted for printing. The driver parses
these messages and converts the data to numbers which can be sent to upstream devices
using another protocol.
The driver performs the following tasks in analyzing the response.
• On a line by line basis from the left, it searches for an attribute against a table of attribute
strings. If an attribute string is found in the line then processing continues. Otherwise
the line is discarded.
• The attribute number is recorded. It will be used to determine the array location where
the attribute state/value will be stored.
• The attribute also determines the state/value extraction method and attempts to
determine the attribute state/value using the appropriate method.
o Method 1: The driver uses a table of attribute states, comparing them to the
remainder of the line. If there is a match the driver stores the value of the
attribute state in the array location determined by the attribute,
o Method 2: The driver looks for (up to three) analog values separated by forward
slashes.
o Method 3: The driver looks for analog values preceded by an equal sign.

Examples:
PHYSICAL STATE
SHORT
Driver recognizes ‘Physical State’ as attribute 2 and uses method 1 to evaluate the rest of
the line. Driver recognizes ‘Short’ as attribute state with value 8. Therefore, the driver stores
the number 8 at location 2 in the Data Array.
VALUE=77 / 0% OF ALARM / 1.0% SMOKE
Driver recognizes ‘VALUE=’ as attribute 17 and uses method 2 to evaluate the rest of the
line. Driver stores three values; 77, 0 and 1.0 in three consecutive locations starting at
location 17. Note that there is a gap between attribute 17 and the next attribute in the table
sufficient for storing up to 3 values. Note that a slash separates the three values.
AVERAGE VALUE=75 / ALARM LEVEL=145
Driver recognizes ‘AVERAGE VALUE’ as attribute 14 and uses method 3 to evaluate the
rest of the line. Driver stores two values; 75 and 145 in two consecutive locations starting at
location 14. Note that an equal sign ‘=’ precedes each numeric value.

Extending the List of Show Attributes
You can extend the list of attributes and attribute states that the driver recognizes by
modifying the configuration CSV file.
The following example adds three attributes and 4 attribute states. If a device reports an
attribute of ‘LIGHT STATE’ as ‘BRIGHT’ then the driver will load array element 32 with
the value 41.

Appendix A.9. Synchronizing the FieldServer with the Panel
When using the Xpoint function to store point states, each time the panel does a warm-start
it sets all point states to normal and then starts evaluating every single one. Thus, after a
warm start, the FieldServer will receive Xpoint messages from the panel for every point not
in a normal state. This provides one synchronization method. The limitation of this method is
that the Simplex panels do not report when a point’s state changes back to normal. Thus to
maintain the synchronization the upstream device must clear the point to zero once it has
read its abnormal state, i.e. The upstream device should consider the data reported by the
Xpoint function as latched data.
A second method is to connect/reset the FieldServer when there are no points in an
abnormal state.
A third method is poll point states using the Clist function as described in Appendix A.20.
This way the FieldServer states will always be updated. Polling is slow and in a system with
many points it is possible that it may take several minutes to update status information for all
points. Thus combining this method with the use of Xpoint Map Descriptors gives the best
of both worlds. When a point changes to ‘not’ normal, then the FieldServer gets the state
change from the Xpoint function immediately and at the same time synchronization is
assured by the continuous polling.

The ackall function can be used to ack all points or all points that are in a particular state. What about if you wish to send an ack
message for a single point. One Map Descriptor is required for each c-p-s combination you require specific acknowledgements for.
The driver checks the array location corresponding to the Map Descriptor. If the value is non-zero then an ack message is sent. The
value is used to determine what kind of ack is sent. As the function is wrbx, the message is only sent when the value is updated.

When you create Map Descriptor’s with the ClearAll function the driver makes a note of the c-p-s. If an Xpoint message is received
from the Panel for the specified c-p-s or you use clist to poll for the state of the c-p-s and the state is U1 then this triggers this
ClearAll action. When the action is triggered the driver sets all array point covered by all Map Descriptor’s with the clearall function to
zero, without consideration of the c-p-s associated with the Map Descriptor.
As the Xpoint messages (unsolicited message from the panel reporting c-p-s status changes) only report when a c-p-s goes to a nonnormal state you may require a way of synchronizing the FieldServer data to the Panel when everything is normal. This function is
provided as an aid. Typically it is used in conjunction with a pseudo-point programmed into your panel.
The idea behind this function assumes that there is some point(s) which when they report a state of U1 trigger the driver to clear
sections of one or more Data Arrays.

If the card reports positive and negative earth data then the driver stores the positive earth data at location 6 and the negative earth

If, for example, card 3 reports information then the driver uses array elements 6 & 7 to store information for this card. Obtain the
array location by multiplying the card number by two.
You can only use this function if the panel firmware version is greater than or equal to revision 10.0. This function uses reads earth /

One Map Descriptor is required for each point whose attributes you wish to ‘show’. The show function reads data that describes the
attributes and the state of each attribute for a single device. Every type of device has a different set of attributes. When the response
is received by the driver, it fills a number of Data Array locations with numeric values that represent the attributes and their states.
You should reserve at least 100 array locations for each Map Descriptor by setting the length to 100.

Appendix A.20. Using Clist to Write-Through and Store point status from
Unsolicited Messages
From version 1.05 on the functionality of the ‘clist’ Map Descriptor’s has been enhanced.
The ‘Clist’ Map Descriptors can
• Read a point’s status
• Write to a point when a Write-Through is activated
• Store the point status when an ‘xpoint’ unsolicited message is received from the panel.
A Write-Through occurs when a Data Array value that is normally updated by a read (rdbc)
Map Descriptor is updated by some other driver or by using the Ruinet application.
In this case the updated value is written through the read Map Descriptor and the Simplex
4100 driver writes the updated value to the panel. The value is written once only each time
that the Data Array element is updated except when the value is updated by the response to
the read or if the point status is updated when an unsolicited message is received from the
panel.
Ensure that:
• The point is not a read only point
• The Panel’s access level has been set appropriately.
When an unsolicited message is received from the panel it would normally be stored using a
Map Descriptor with the ‘xpoint’ function. (See section 4.5.6) However, if you are polling for the
status of that point using a ‘Clist’ Map Descriptor and if that Map Descriptor has
‘Store_Unsolicited’ set to yes then you must omit the ‘xpoint’ Map Descriptor as the ‘Clist’ Map
Descriptor can be used to store the point status when it is updated with an unsolicited message.
If you have both Map Descriptor’s defined then the result will be unpredictable.
A write command can be sent to a Simplex panel in one of two formats:
1) SET c-p-s ON/OFF (default)
2) SET c-p-s value
Use the sim4100_WriteThru parameter in the CSV to change to the 2nd format.
Even if you are writing to an analog pseudo point using format 1 is suitable because by enabling
the point you force it to take its intrinsic value. By setting the point off you are setting its value to

Appendix B. Troubleshooting Tips
Appendix B.1. Address Errors
If the driver produces BAD_ADDRESS stats then do the following
• Read the notes on processing errors. You can see the last error response and a report
of the MD's which received the error response in the error array.
• Alternatively, take a log, open the ASCII version of the log and look for error messages.
Error 2 is the response sent by the panel when it is polled for a point that doesn’t exist.
Find the Error #2's n the log. Now look at the line which precedes the error. It is the poll.
Look to see which point in being polled. Now you know the c-p-s of the invalid point, edit
the configuration and remove the MD which polls for data at that point. When you have
finished editing the configuration, download the modified file and reset the FS for the
changes to take effect.

Appendix B.3. Resolving Network Addresses above 255
The Standard format for addressing a simplex point is c-p-s (Card-Point-Subpoint). Each of
these components in the address supports a maximum value of 255. However, when using
an NDU (Network Display Unit), addresses may be supplied in a Card-Address format
where the address value could be substantially larger than 255. In these applications it will
be necessary to convert the Card-Address format into c-p-s format before configuring the
points in the FieldServer.
The formula used to convert between the two formats is as follows:
Card is the same for both formats.
Network Address = ((Point-1)*256) + Sub-Point + 1
This conversion procedure is best illustrated by means of an example:
Example:
Card–Address point supplied = 5-2936
From this we deduce the card number to be 5. The next step is to break the address into
multiples of 256 in order to determine point and sub-point. Since this is also a hex
denominated calculation, an easy way to do this is to convert the value to Hex:
2936 = 0xB78
Now, break out the last two hex numbers for sub-point portion, and use the rest for point
address. So we get:
0xB = 11 = (Point-1)
0x78 = 120 = Sub-Point + 1
Solving this equation, we get:
Point = 12
Sub-Point = 119

Troubleshooting Tip
A write thru is defined as follows. The FieldServer
reads data from a device and stores it in a Data
Array. If a remote device changes the value in that
Data Array, the FieldServer will write the new value
to the device that is being read. This driver does
not permit write thru's except when the data is
being updated using CLIST. Refer also to Sections
4.5.4, 4.5.6 and Appendix A.20. In versions of the
driver up to and including 1.07a a panic is produced
when this message is printed. The message is
printed to a maximum of 10 times and then
suppressed.
Check the CSV file; there was no matching Map
Descriptor for a message.
If the server can’t find a matching MD (i.e. the point
being polled for doesn’t exist) then the driver
responds with Simplex Error #2.
Check the driver manual and Simplex User
Manuals. There is no driver response to the

An internal driver diagnostic has been triggered.
You must report this error to FieldServer’s
Technical Support.
Every Sim4100 Map Descriptor must be connected
to a node. Ensure that the parameter ‘Node_Name’
has been specified on the Map Descriptor.
To correct this problem, edit the CSV, make the
correction, download the corrected CSV file and
reset the FieldServer.
If you have a Map Descritor which has the
sim4100_func parameter set to ‘earths’ or to
‘values’ then you must set the PLC_Type
parameter on the node to 4100U. (See section 0
Client Side Node Descriptors ). It is only
appropriate to do so if the firmware version of your
Sim4100:#61 Err. PLC_Type=4100u panel is 10.x or later. You can create a map
rqd for 'values'/'earths'
descriptor to read the version information if you are
not sure. You can also use the menu system on the
Panel to read the version number.
To correct this problem, edit the CSV, make the
correction, download the corrected CSV file and
reset the FieldServer.

Appendix D. Pseudo Points
It is beyond the scope of the driver manual to describe the full functionality of the Simplex
Panels. However, we have found it useful to provide the following data to customers. The
following information is not maintained and updated therefore you should use it for reference
only and should always consult with the vendor of your Simplex system before implementing
any project decisions or actions based on the information provided in this section.
Pseudo points are points that report states or attributes based on how the Simplex system has
been installed, configured and programmed. They are often programmed to groups, devices,
zones or other logic groupings. For example, a pseudo point may be programmed to report if
and only if more than one sensor in a particular area is reporting smoke.
Every Simplex system has a number of default pseudo points programmed into the firmware
supplied with the panel. These default points depend only on the firmware revision number and
are generally unaffected by the configuration programmed for a particular site.
Although the 4100 card number can range from 0-250 in theory, only the following ranges are
presently used in the system:
Card address
0-119
128-143
144-159
160-175
Card type
Physical (Hardware) cards
Digital Pseudo cards
Analog Pseudo cards
List Pseudo cards
Digital Pseudo’s: There are 250 fixed pseudo's in the 4020 panel and 511 in the 4100 and
4100U. The numbering sequence is simple, 128 starts the first block of 256 (0 to 255), so the
first point is 128-0-0, the second is 128-1-0, and so on. The next block starts at 129 and follows
the same sequence, then 130 and so on up to 143. In the 4100 the first user definable pseudo
is P-256, in the 4100U it's P-512.
