Fire Lite Alarms IPDACT-2 Internet Fire Communicator



The new FireWatch IPDACT-2 and IPDACT-2UD are communicators based on the original IPDACT optional digital alarm communications module from Fire Lite. The new IPDACT-2 duplicates the previous function found in the original IPDACT but adds two supervised inputs, two additional outputs, an improved terminal strip and the addition of several legacy panels to the compatibility list. The IPDACT-2UD version 6.0 adds a modem daughter board (2UD) that supports upload/download over the Internet or a customer's Intranet. Refer to the IPDACT Series Installation Document PN 53109 for more information. Both models connect to the primary and secondary communication ports of the panel's DACT, converting the analog signals into digital signals at the panel for transmission to a compatible Teldat VisorALARM PLUS IP receiver at a central station. The panel operates normally during an alarm, supervisory or trouble event and sends contact-ID formatted analog information out of the telephone ports to the IP Communicator. The IP Communicator reformats the data into highly encrypted Ethernet UDP packets for transmission to a compatible receiver at the central station. This new listing only requires an IP connection. No backup analog phone line is necessary. Customers can still use a traditional backup phone line from the panel's second phone port if desired. With Contact ID DACT-equipped panels from Fire Lite, the IP Communicators allow for faster and more economic digital alarm transmissions, improving response times and decreasing costs found with traditional analog systems. They offer value added features such as supervised line functionality, where a central station can detect any off-line alarm panels within seconds. On the central station side, a compatible VisorALARM Plus IP receiver from the Teldat Corporation emulates popular receiver formats and allows seamless integration into existing conventional central station architectures. The benefit of an IP Communicator is that it is always on, increasing the security and supervision of the central station connection from once every 24 hours for a supervisory test signal to once every 30 - 90 seconds. The IPDACT-2UD allows a programmer to upload and download data between the user's PC and a supported fire alarm panel. The panel and PC can be anywhere on the world wide web or within a corporate intranet. The user's computer runs a program called UDPORT.exe to capture the modem signals from Fire Lite's PK-PLUS or the newer PS-TOOLS panel programming software. In UDPORT.exe the user enters the main IP address of the Visor- ALARM receiver, the UDP port to use, username, and password. Instead of using the PC's modem, this process communicates between the IPDACT-2UD's modem at the panel and the panel's own modem. While speed is still limited to the baud rate of the panel's modem, panel communications are now 100% digital over IP from the remote program PC all the way to the remote panel installation. This eliminates any dropouts in modem communications caused by noise or other factors. If an alarm should occur during upload or download, the panel is able to interrupt modem communications immediately and transmit the alarm to the central station.



  • Listed to UL Standard 864, Ninth Edition when used with Fire Lite UL 864 Ninth Edition-listed panels.
  • Eliminates the cost of two dedicated phone lines. Only the customer's shared IP equipment is required.
  • Can use newer low-cost, non-analog, digital telephone services such as cable or fiber optics.
  • Increases connection supervision to the central station from the once-a-day test signal to once every 30 - 90 seconds.
  • Requires no change to the existing panel configuration. The IP Communicator connect directly to the primary and secondary analog panel telephone ports.
  • Fast alarm transmission (less than 10 second transmission time).
  • Works over any type of customer-provided Ethernet 10/100 Base network connection (LAN or WAN), DSL modem or cable modem.
  • Data transmits over standard contact-ID protocol but is secured with the industry's highest level of encryption (AES 512 bit).
  • Supports both dynamic (DHCP) or Public and Private Static IP addressing.
  • Supports dual-destination IP receiver address for high redundancy configurations: all signals are sent to a secondary address should the primary become unavailable.
  • User programmable UDP ports for flexibility and compatibility with firewalls and other network security components.
