S4190-0019-2 - Revised 9/12 4190-9815 Emergency Communications Display Interface (ECDI) Software, Model 4190
Fire Control Panels
Emergency Communications Display
Interface (ECDI) Software, Model 4190-9815
Features
Allows normal building video message displays to
be controlled by a Simplex® 4100ES, 4010ES, or
4100U fire alarm control panel:
 When an emergency condition is reported to the host fire
alarm control panel, normal building video message
communications are switched to provide emergency
communications
 ECDI Software resides in an on-site computer and
monitors the computer port protocol output from the host
control panel
 Upon receipt of an emergency condition, the information
provided to the ECDI Computer allows it to abort
normal building messages and switch to the programmed
emergency message
 Standard messages are listed on page 4; custom
messages or images can be prepared, or the output can
be connected to a pre-selected URL
 Operation includes control of the video feed using a
separate VGA switch, or providing an RSS message feed
to enable the desired action at the receiving controls, or
both can be provided
 Operation requires Microsoft Windows XP or
Windows 7 (32-bit) operating systems; computers
require a serial port for control panel communications
and a second serial port for VGA Switch control; RSS
feed is via Ethernet port
Link panel point activity to a website:
 Panel trigger points can be programmed to connect the
ECDI Computer to a specific website URL to send to the
building displays to view activity or take action (view
web cameras, broadcast messages, etc.)
VGA message control:
 Building display communications are connected through
a dual input, single output VGA Switch (see page 2)
 When an emergency is detected at the host control panel,
point information is sent to the ECDI Computer allowing
it to control the VGA Switch output to feed to its video
output for the duration of the message(s)
 When the emergency is clear, communications revert
back to the standard controller
RSS message control:
 For compatible building display controllers, the ECDI
Computer functions as a web server to provide an RSS
feed via LAN/WAN connection, sending out the
programmed text associated to the selected panel
activity; an Internet browser with functionality equal to
Internet Explorer 7 or above is required
 For RSS feed only, ECDI software can reside on a
Simplex TrueSite Workstation computer if there is an
available Ethernet port and an available RS-232 port to
connect to the host control panel
 The RSS feed may also be compatible with other
building communications equipment such as power over
Ethernet (POE) message display products

Description
Fire Alarm Systems. Fire alarm systems normally
communicate information to their connected fire alarm
notification appliances to advise building occupants of
emergency conditions and of the directed response.
However, many buildings also have non-emergency,
non-fire alarm display equipment in place to advise of
normal conditions such as daily events, weather,
announcing special visitors, or maybe just the daily menu.
Using the Fire Alarm System to Control other
Systems. ECDI Software allows the information displays
used for normal building communications to distribute
emergency information under the control of a Simplex
4100ES, 4010ES, or 4100U fire alarm control panel. The
software resides on a separate computer and controls the
building information equipment by either controlling a
VGA switch, or by sending RSS communications, or both
may be supplied.
Applications Note. ECDI Software provides a variety
of system connection options. Contact your local Simplex
product representative to have your specific building
requirements reviewed by our Solutions team.

When the ECDI Computer receives a point status from
the fire alarm control panel that matches a programmed
trigger point, it controls the VGA Switch to feed the
ECDI Computer screen to the connected displays;
ECDI programming determines which message screen,
image, or URL is displayed per point or point type
