ADVANCE SmartSeries - GAI

ADVANCE SmartSeries - GAI
When faced with the responsibility of upgrading your plant communication system...or
with the task of designing or recommending an Emergency Notification System for your
facility...GAI-Tronics ADVANCE / SmartSeries™ systems offer a smart solution.
After 60 years’ experience in producing rugged and reliable communications systems for
industrial and hazardous environments, GAI-Tronics knows what it takes to keep a
communication system running smoothly. We used this experience in designing the
microprocessor-based ADVANCE / SmartSeries™ System, the intelligent way to address
all of your communication, supervision, and notification needs.
ADVANCE / SmartSeries™ systems are fully adaptable to a variety of facility sizes, from a
few handsets to several hundred. Using SmartLink technology, multiple independent
communication systems can be interfaced and monitored from a central location.
The same features that improve operational communications assume even greater
significance in an Emergency Notification System:
n
Broadcast of up to 100 alarm tones and pre-recorded speech messages, all custom configured.
n
The ID feature identifies the specific station generating a page, so that control room personnel
can locate the source of the emergency.
n
The Emergency Party Line feature automatically connects the SmartSeries station to the
Control Room, as well as identifying the specific station, to locate the source of the emergency.
n
The Priority Page feature allows a control room operator to override operational communication
to issue priority pages to emergency response personnel, or to issue live updates to the emergency
situation.
n
The SmartStatus feature provides a graphical user interface to the system, allowing quick
location of emergency pages or reports. SmartView Portal provides a graphical representation of
the facility and communication system.
n
GAI-Tronics’ SmartVolume technology ensures that even in the presence of high ambient noise
levels, employees will hear important emergency announcements.
n
Auxiliary Input/Output features allows alarm initiation and auxiliary device activation from the
field stations.
ADVANCE / SmartSeries™ system field
devices utilize the latest technology in
data communications to significantly
improve system integrity and functionality.
By interfacing with the ADVANCE control unit, the devices exchange fault and activity messages. The SmartView Portal provides a graphical display of the entire communication system, making the system very user-friendly.
Current faults are displayed or logged, depending on the system configuration, to provide
maintenance personnel a means to diagnose equipment problems. For example, a handset
left off-hook can degrade an audio channel. To alleviate this problem, the stations report
this condition and are programmed to go electronically on-hook after a pre-set time period
configured at start up.
Other system functions monitored by the control unit include use of the page line, integrity
of the system cable, and the functionality of the station amplifier and associated speakers.
Supervision of these features significantly reduces the costs associated with maintaining
your communication system.
With emergency notification as a major industrial concern, GAI-Tronics offers the ADVANCE
Emergency Notification System. The ADVANCE Control Unit interfaces with GAI-Tronics
standard Page/Party® or SmartSeries™ stations to provide all of the features required for an
Emergency Notification System that you and your employees can depend on.

ADVANCE SmartSeries™
Master Control Unit (MCU)
The Master Control Unit (MCU), the central processing component of the
SmartSeries™ system, coordinates and processes all system functions.
Pre-loaded with system software, the MCU includes system configuration
information stored on a solid state disk. During start-up, the MCU executes
all system operations based on the programmed configuration.
The MCU maintains constant communication with the Card Rack interface
assemblies through an ISA PC style bus structure. Static conditions (e.g.,
Page/Party® Interface line in-use status) are monitored by the MCU through
this mechanism. Data communications to field devices are supported by this
mechanism and the specialized data port of each interface.
External Audio Interface (EAI)
Audio Messenger Interface (AMI)
The External Audio Interface (EAI) allows multiple audio paths to be interfaced
to a SmartSeries™ system. The EAI works in concert with the Audio Messenger
Interface (AMI) to route alarms and pre-recorded speech messages. The EAI
supports 4 external audio inputs; two are dedicated for use by the AMI whereas
the other two can be independently configured. Additionally, the EAI provides 2
audio outputs . The EAI contains a 1.00 kHz sine wave detector for use in the
supervision of several internal audio paths.
The Audio Messenger Interface (AMI) provides pre-recorded
alarm tones, pre-recorded speech messages. The tones include
typical emergency tones (i.e., a siren, slow whoop, etc.) and
signaling or process tones (i.e., a gong, steady tone, etc.).
All of the tones and speech messages broadcast by the AMI
are stored in MP3 file format. For applications where
a needed tone is not supplied, any tone
recorded or stored in an MP3 file format can
be used with the AMI. The telephone interface
option allows users to access the SmartSeries™
system for page and party line communication through
a telephone.

Monitored Relay Module (MRM)
Monitored Input Module (MIM)
Amplifier Distribution Module (ADM)
The Monitored Relay Module (MRM) controls relays typically used
for alarm notification, such as strobe lights to supplement alarm
broadcasts. The MRM supports line supervision to the notification
appliance when it is not in use.
The MRM is capable of supplying and supervising eight (8) relay circuits. Any outputs that are not utilized may be configured for use as
an alarm initiation input. Each line may be configured independently
for its intended use. All lines are supervised for open circuits and
ground faults. Indication and single device configurations monitor
short circuit conditions.
The Monitored Input Module (MIM) interrogates switch status
changes for an alarm initiation request or various line fault conditions.
The MIM is capable of supervising eight (8) alarm initiating lines for
such use as alarm pull box loops. Each line may be configured
independently to monitor single or multiple switch activation or
deactivated if not used. All lines are supervised for open circuits and
ground faults. The single device configuration monitors short circuit
conditions.
The Amplifier Distribution Monitor/Module (ADM) distributes the
audio level to amplifiers and monitors the return speaker loop
integrity and amplifier fault status condition. The ADM is used to
distribute audio to up to six central amplifiers. The ADM also verifies
the integrity of the related speaker loops and monitors up to six
amplifier failure contacts, reporting their status to the MCU.
The ADM’s speaker loop inputs detect various fault conditions on up
to six speaker loops. These fault conditions include ground faults,
cable breaks and wire-to-wire short circuits (while associated amplifier
is not in use), and amplifier failures.
The ADM’s contact closure inputs are typically used to monitor the
contacts of the central amplifiers to determine amplifier failure.

Dual Page/Party® Interface (PPI)
The Dual Page/Party® Interface (PPI) is used to route audio to Page/Party®
and SmartSeries™ field equipment connected to a Page/Party® system cable
with interrogation for up to 400 SmartSeries™ devices and/or numerous
Page/Party® stations in 2 zones. A data communications port supports
interrogation of the addressable devices by the Master Control Unit (MCU).
System page operation to/from the Page/Party® area is sequenced by the
MCU through use of the Card Rack Assembly page resources. The internal
page audio path is supervised when not in use. Two Card Rack party line
connections support MCU system merge/isolate party operations. The
corresponding Page/Party® party lines are monitored for in-use status.
The Dual PPI monitors the Page/Party® page line and one party line for faults
that degrade audio quality. Faults may be attributed to continuity to ground,
wire-to-wire shorts or open circuit conditions. Detection of short or open
conditions require a SmartSeries™ station to be placed at the end of each
circuit branch.
Amplifier Zone Interface (AZI)
The Amplifier Zone Interface (AZI) is used to route Card Rack page audio
to twelve power amplifiers. These amplifiers may feed from one to twelve
speaker-loops.
The AZI supports Master Control Unit (MCU) selection of any of the 12
audio outputs for three simultaneous page operations: two page broadcasts and audio supervision. Two output level settings are provided for
normal or emergency page broadcasts. In addition, the interface supports
ten MIMs, MRMs or ADMs through a data communications port. These
devices are interrogated by the MCU.
Supervision of any amplifier audio path requires the use of one or more
Amplifier Distribution/Monitor Modules (ADM). To test the systems’
amplifier and speaker loop integrity a high frequency inaudible test tone is
routed to the amplifier and associated speaker-loops when the circuit is
not in use. The ADM monitors the return path for faults that degrade
audio quality. Faults may be attributed to continuity to ground, wire-towire shorts or open circuit conditions.
