ZP3 Remote Diagnostics

The ZP3 remote diagnostic software allows an engineer to dial into a ZP3 system from a PC in a remote location.

  • Remote control of the system for swift resolution of incident
  • Remote analysis of sensor contamination minimises false alarms
  • Archive log provides concise management data

Full product description

The ZP3 remote diagnostic software allows an engineer to dial into a ZP3 system from a PC in a remote location.

Once a connection is made via a password protected dial up procedure, the diagnostic software has different menus to facilitate a wide range of control and indication functions. Remote access to these functions can significantly reduce the systems ongoing running cost by minimising unnecessary visits to site and pre planning the on site activities.

At a basic level, the system�s archive log can be displayed indicating the type of event e.g. fire or fault, type of device, the device text label and the time the event occurred. This activity log can provide the end user with confirmation that the site operatives are performing the weekly testing together with identifying troublesome areas of system.

Preventative maintenance procedures can also be formulated through the software�s ability to extract the chamber cleanliness reading for all of the system�s smoke sensors. This same data can be plotted on a time based graph to assist with identifying the causes of process related false alarms.

The engineer can remotely take control of an incident if an end user experiences problems performing such control function tasks as silencing the system sounders and resetting the system. If the system will not reset then the engineer can temporarily isolate a sensor remotely until the smoke has cleared or until an engineer can visit site.

At a more advanced level the remote dial in can be used to make such system modifications as text label changes and sensor sensitivity adjustments.

The extensive range of control and indication facilities provided by the remote diagnostics software makes it ideal for use on sites where little or no reliance is placed on the site based staff. Alternatively, sites where the activity level on the fire alarm system is high, can benefit from being able to control and interrogate the system from an off site location.

A modem and communication PCB will need to be fitted integral to the ZP3 control panel to gain access to the remote diagnostic facilities. The end user will in turn be required to provide a dedicated analogue telephone line adjacent to the control panel.
