The M1000 is an alarm panel with 10 digital inputs. Inputs from a dry contact (normally open [NO] or normally closed [NC]) will cause the corresponding LED to flash. Simultaneously a common alarm output and a siren output will be activated as well as an individual output. The unit has separate indications of first alarm, following alarms and acknowledged alarms. It also has dedicated inputs for remote reset and blocking. The unit can be configured for cable monitoring and monitoring of its own supply and insulation level.
Multiple M1000 units can be interconnected to form a large scale alarm system. In this situation functions are available for synchronizing the flashing of the LEDs and enabling global indication of first alarm for all connected units. Alarm related parameters like time delays, reset functions and other features can be configured through 18 programming switches. The M1000 can also be configured via the RS232 interface. A standard ANSI/VT100 terminal is used as programming tool. The M1000 is equipped with a 2-wire RS485 interface supporting MODBUS-RTU communication
