WS3000 TABS Description
The Serial WS3000 TABS driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices
over either RS-232 or RS-422 using WS3000 TABS protocol. The FieldServer can emulate
either a Server or Client.
The WS3000 TABS driver is set up for Alarm Surveillance and Control. The protocol works over
a multidrop RS-422 line or over a RS-232 line and allows only one master and up to 32 slaves
on a serial channel. Slaves are assigned station addresses that range from 0 to 31. The master
does not have a station address. The protocol is strictly command/response with the master
polling the slave devices. Each slave can be configured to hold the data for one to 256
displays. Each display contains 64 alarms status points represented by bits.
This driver only supports short addressing mode, thus allowing for a maximum of 256 displays
per tabs device.
The Server driver fully supports the processing of the following AS&C Remote Control
Commands:
Type 0, 1, 2, 128-255
The Client driver supports the sending of AS&C Remote Control Commands (writes).

Configuring the FieldServer as a WS3000 TABS Client
For a detailed discussion on FieldServer configuration, please refer to the FieldServer
Configuration Manual. The information that follows describes how to expand upon the factory
defaults provided in the configuration files included with the FieldServer (See “.csv” files
provided with the FieldServer).
This section documents and describes the parameters necessary for configuring the FieldServer
to communicate with a WS3000 TABS Server. The configuration file tells the FieldServer about
its interfaces, and the routing of data required. In order to enable the FieldServer for WS3000
TABS communications, the driver independent FieldServer buffers need to be declared in the
“Data Arrays” section, the destination device addresses need to be declared in the “Client Side
Nodes” section, and the data required from the Servers needs to be mapped in the “Client Side
Map Descriptors” section. Details on how to do this can be found below.
Note that in the tables, * indicates an optional parameter, with the bold legal value being the
default.

this array.
Example
// Data Arrays
//

Data_Array_Length
2048
There are 8 bytes per display allowed. Eight bytes will represent the 64 points per display.
A maximum of 256 displays per slave gives 2048 bytes per slave.
