Re: 2001 OP/SP Card

Robert is correct. The OP/SP card was made to put into a system replacing an older AC system that did not use batteries. The panel receives a normal source of AC power (Operating Power) and a second source of AC power (Supervisory Power). If the operating power fails the second power source will rin...

Re: Wire a SmartSync truealert without a Simplex sync module

The strobe section of SmartSync and Not So Smart Sync work the same. There is a power drop of around 15 mS which flashes the strobe. The SmartSYnc sends a 4 bit horn control signal every 8 sync pulses. On the SmartSync Control Module the NAC IN terminals provide the power to the NAC OUT terminals. T...

Re: Wire a SmartSync truealert without a Simplex sync module

Yeah, somehow I dropped the word "panel" from my answer. A quick search found one SmartSync Control Module on Ebay for $44.99.

Re: Simplex Easter Egg

I did some quick research. The CO2 is a byproduct of the brewing process. The NH3 (ammonia) is used in the refrigeration plants. Those are the main dangerous gasses involved in the brewing process that could be in high concentration. At least when this particular brewery was built. Some beers are us...

Re: Simplex Easter Egg

This is a 4100+ system. As it happens I have a copy of some of the audio files because I had to modify a message in the system years ago. So I have some information. I can't reproduce the actual audio because I do not have the .mot files to burn the chips. Here are the gasses and areas announced. Am...

Re: Simplex Easter Egg

I was at the office a few months ago when the operations manager had the first ESNet system head ends laid out for pre-install programming. This system had the standard displays but also had two TSW nodes. The ESNet is all new network interface and media cards. It runs at Ethernet speed. This means ...

Re: Simplex Easter Egg

Interesting display. I also found nothing in the datasheets. I grabbed the picture so I can email it to some people I know at the office where I worked. We used to meet for lunch most weeks but Coronavirus ended that for the foreseeable future. Let you know if I find out anything.

Re: Simplex 4603-9101 Annunciator Question

Those ArrowHart key operated switches are very reliable. In the LCD annunciator the switch is running way below its rated amp capacity. Over my many years the only ones I remember replacing were from someone turning them with an incorrect key or other tool. Then the AH key would not go in any more. ...
