Sensor Interface Module

SIM

SIM enables communication to and from remote sensor sites. It interfaces standard Form C to a LAN system.  SIM is an intelligent module which can be tailored to operate with all input types from almost any kind of security sensor, e.g. radar sensors, infrared sensors, fiber optic sensors, or any other intrusion detection sensor.

 

SIM is used either in a stand-alone configuration, or in combination with the Aerial Warning System (AWS).

 

The above figure shows an example of a Security System consisting of two Sensor Interface Modules (SIM) and one Command & Control Station (CCS), containing a PC Module (PCM) with the Annunciator Software. Each SIM can receive hard-wire signals from up to 8 Form-C sensors. Each sensor's input is uniquely identifiable by the Sensor Input Board's slot in the SIM to which it is connected. Each SIM is uniquely identifiable by its IP address. SIM communicates with the CCS via a LAN connection. All communication is performed as TCP/IP.
