(Version v ) User manual TRIKDIS, JSC Draugystes st. 17, LT Kaunas LITHUANIA Tel.: Fax: Table of contents 1 Definition of program IPcom Description of operation Specifications PC requirements Working with the program IPcom Configuration of the program IPcom Installation...10 1 Definition of program IPcom is designed for receiving of alarm messages transferred by communication protocols TCP/IP and UDP/IP. IPcom receives alarm messages of security control panels transferred by GSM modules G7, CG2, CG3, Ethernet module E2 (and by other compatible modules) and redirects them to the existing monitoring software. 2 Description of operation operates as integrated part of GSM/Ethernet Alarm Transmission System, which is comprised of various transmitting devices, communication networks and IP receivers. The program IPcom receives messages transferred by transmitting devices through GPRS and Ethernet networks by TCP/IP and UDP/IP protocols. The program also controls connected CSD/SMS receiver GM5, used for receiving alarm messages, which are transferred through CSD and SMS connection. Figure 1: GSM/Ethernet Alarm Transmission System redirects received messages to existing monitoring software, where they are visualized. The program IPcom analyses messages received from transmitting devices. If IPcom recognises correct encryption key and encoding protocol of received messages, it automatically creates list of transmitting devices and controls communication. The IPcom automatically registers each new transmitting device. When message is received, program divides entire message into parts and displays transmitting device Object ID along with IP address, Telephone number, Communication state, Signal level, Time of last received alarm message (or PING), Communication Control Signal (PING) sending interval, Brand name. The program registers message reception time, defines time interval for communication channel control and sends confirmation about message receiving to the transmitting device. recognizes Communication Control Signals (PING) sent through communication channel and controls their timely receiving. Communications with transmitting devices are supervised according to specific communication control time intervals, which are different for each object. Communication Control Signals (PING) are not transferred to monitoring software. Upon communication failure, IPcom generates alarm message about communication failure and transfers it to the monitoring software. In case of transmitting device is configured not to send Communication Control Signals (PING), IPcom redirects received alarm messages to the existing monitoring software only. The last received alarm message is displayed in the IPcom window. Received messages are transferred to monitoring software by protocol Surgard MLR2-DG using codes of Contact ID table. Transmission to the existing monitoring software is done through Serial port RS232 or Ethernet (for example through local network LAN). 3 3 Specifications Ethernet connection Input Wireless Internet connection Serial port RS232 Flow rate* up to 50 messages/sec. Storage of messages up to 1000 last events Output to monitoring software - Serial port RS232 - Ethernet Output protocol Surgard MLR2-DG according to codes of Contact ID table Software language Selectable either Lithuanian, English or Russian * depends on parameters of the PC in operation: speed and RAM 4 PC requirements The program IPcom should be installed into the PC running OS MS Windows XP, Vista, Win7 having Internet connection with External Static IP address.

Figure 2: Main window of program IPcom Area Objects control: - The column [Object ID] displays account number of transmitting device a message was received from. - The column [IP] displays IP address of the transmitting device a message was received from. - The column [Phone number] displays telephone number of the transmitting device a message was received from while alarm transmission through CSD and SMS connection is done. - The column [Communication State] displays connection state with transmitting device a message was received from. - The column [Level] displays GSM signal strength in relative units. - The column [GPRS last PING] displays time of the last alarm message (or PING) received by protocols TCP/IP and UDP/IP. - The column [GPRS PING interval] displays time interval between Communication Control Signals (PING) by protocols TCP/IP and UDP/IP. - The column [GSM last PING] displays time of the last alarm message (or PING) received through the CSD and SMS connection. - The column [GSM PING interval] displays time interval between Communication Control Signals (PING) through the CSD and SMS connection. - The column [Device] displays Brand name of transmitting device a message was received from. Figure 3: Status bar of IPcom Status bar of IPcom indications (Figure 3): - GPRS device status: Active/Inactive it indicates status of data input by protocol TCP/IP. - GSM device status: Active/Inactive it indicates status of connection to CSD/SMS receiver GM5. 5 - External COM port status: Active/Inactive it indicates status of COM port connection for outputting data. - External TCP status: Active/Inactive it indicates status of connection to LAN for outputting data. - Events in COM Buffer: it indicates number of messages in COM port buffer. - Events in TCP Buffer: it indicates number of messages in buffer. Closing of the program IPcom. In order to close the program, press the right-click of the mouse on the icon Ipcom.lnk at the desktop toolbar, options Show IPcom and Exit IPcom appear. Choose option Exit IPcom and the program will be closed (the icon program IPcom will be removed from the toolbar). Note: Keys [-], [X] minimizes the program window only. However the program itself remains active. 6 Configuration of the program IPcom In order to start configuration window Options (see Figure 3) click on [Options] button in main IPcom window. There are options to set terms of Communication Control Signals (PING) monitoring, set parameters of data Input/Output ports, specify receiver and line numbers, activate sound signals and disable free configuration access etc in options window. Window Options / General (see Figure 4). Figure 4: Window Options / General In the area Signal last time terms of providing Communication Control Signals (PING) monitoring should be set. Conforming to values written in Figure 3 and PING sending interval 30 seconds is set in transmitting device, PING control time is 110 seconds. If this time has expired, IPcom forms an alarm message about communication failure with transmitting device and sends this to monitoring software. - If received message contains the PING sending time interval, Communication Control Signals (PING) control time can be calculated by multiplying PING sending interval set in transmitting device by the value, written in the field [Multiplier] as well as by adding time correction factor [Tolerance]. For example: PING control time = 30 sec (PING interval) x 3 (Multiplier) + 20 sec (Time correction factor) = 110 seconds. - If received message does not contain the PING sending time interval, Communication Control Signals (PING) control time can be calculated by multiplying initial interval (120 sec.) by the value, written in the field [Multiplier] as well as by adding time correction factor [Tolerance]. For example: PING control time = 120 sec (initial PING interval) x 3 (Multiplier) + 20 sec (Time correction factor) = 380 seconds. 6 If during Communication Control Signals (PING) control time any message has not been received from the transmitting device, IPcom will form the alarm message about communication failure and send it to monitoring software. IPcom will form the communication failure restore message and send it to monitoring software when program will receive such amount of PINGs as specified in the area Message count to restore signal. Amount of PINGs should be specified for both connections: in the box [GPRS] while alarm transmission is done by protocols TCP/IP and UDP/IP and in the box [GSM] while alarm transmission is done through CSD and SMS connection Area External. There are options to set parameters of information output to monitoring software. - If messages are redirected through Serial port RS232, press the button [Setup] and set parameters of comport in appeared Setup window (see Figure 5). Write in heartbeat signal sending interval in box [Hearbit interval] and mark [ ] box [Started] for enabling it.
