Overview
Standard Features
The NETCOM-1S allows GE Security fire alarm panels to communicate with a PC running FireWorks or ACDB software or a serial printer over Ethernet networks. The NETCOM-1S is ruggedly constructed
industrial grade unit that connects to the fire alarm control panel’s
RS-232 serial port. LEDs on the front of the unit make it easy to
determine its status. Flash ROM memory permits upgraded versions
of operating firmware to be easily downloaded via the serial port.
Power is supplied directly from the Fire Alarm Control Panel, ensuring a reliable and monitored source. For remote printer applications,
an external 120VAC wall mount transformer is supplied.
• Connect alarm panels to a remote fireworks workstation over
TCP/IP, LAN/WANs
The NETCOM-1S encapsulates RS-232 serial data to/from the fire
alarm panel into packets and transports them over 10/100BASE-T
Ethernet to a remote network location where the RS-232 serial data
is reconstructed by either software or hardware means depending
on the application.
• Access Control Database Support over LAN/WAN
• 10/100BASE-T Ethernet interface (RJ45)
• RS-232 Serial connection
• UL-1950 (ITE) Listed
• Configuration and port director software included
• Flash rom for easy software upgrade
The NETCOM-1S is supplied with NETCON-INS Configuration Software that is used to enter a static IP address, set up port, protocol
and data handling configurations. NETDIRECT Communication Port
Director software is also provided to facilitate the use of the NETCOM-1S interface with programs that to not directly support TCP/IP
networking. The program is a 32 bit Windows® based utility that
maps up to 32 communication ports to individual IP addresses.
The NETCOM-1S is suitable for desktop and surface mounting. The
NETCOM-BRKT facilitates mounting one or two NETCOM-1Ss in an
MFC-A enclosure and 3-CHAS7 Chassis.

Application
Installation and Mounting
Fire Alarm Monitoring
Considerable thought and care must be used when combining life
safety equipment and LAN technology. Systems that utilize LAN
network technology for information and reporting purposes ONLY
do not face the network and agency listing restrictions as systems
that use the LAN to transmit control information between the fire
alarm panel and the FireWorks workstation(s). This technology is
listed for monitoring applications only. All life safety applications
using LAN technology should be fully reviewed with the Authority
Having Jurisdiction.
The NETCOM-1S is installed in a NETCOM-BRKT, which fits into the
cabinet options shown below.
Installing the NETCOM-BRKT in a 3-CHAS7
3-CHAS7
Each fire alarm control panel is equipped with a NETCOM-1S
interface that connects the panel to a TCP/IP LAN/WAN. On the
monitoring side of the LAN/WAN, a PC running FireWorks software
is configured to look for the static IP addresses of the NETCOM-1S
interfaces on the LAN/WAN. Panel data is then transferred over the
LAN/WAN to the FireWorks workstation as if the workstation and
the panel were hard wired together.
Access Control Database Support
The interface may be used to permit a remote computer running
the Access Control DataBase (ACDB) program to connect with
a Synergy enabled EST3 panel over an existing LAN/WAN. Simply install a NETCOM-1S in the EST3 panel and use the supplied
NETDIRECT communication port director software utility and the
ACDB software in remote PC equipped with a conventional network
interface card.
Remote System Printer
This application requires one NETCOM-1S at the FACP and a second
NETCOM-1S interface at the PT-1S printer.

Technical Requirements
· Each interface requires a static IP address assigned by the network administrator.
· An RJ-45 network jack must be located within 5 feet, of the interface.
· When connecting remote panels to a GE Security FireWorks
system, network ping time can not exceed 500ms.
· Sufficient network bandwidth shall be made available at all times.
Typical requirements for these applications are 1.8 Kbytes/Sec.
· All network security is the responsibility of the network administrator.

Engineering Specification
The FACP to LAN/WAN network interface shall be an industrial
grade 10/100BASE T Ethernet® device server. The interface shall
have diagnostic LEDs on the front of the unit make it easy to
determine its status, and incorporate flash ROM memory facilitating upgrading the operating firmware. Power shall supplied directly
from the FACP, ensuring a reliable and monitored power source.
