TS400 Description

The fault indicating and building automation system TS400, in compliance with DIN 19235, offers the perfect platform to monitor predominantly technical systems and plants. Thanks to the integrated visualisation and the save alarm chain your infrastructure is alway under control. The access for monitoring and configuration is with a web browser either directly in the CPU or with a computer within the network. All system access can be password-protected. The menuoperated parameterisation does not require any in-depth programming knowledge due to visualisation. The data is collected by a wide variety of analogue as well as digital inputs from the low-cost Wago range. Interfaces such as ESPA444, Modbus, Unix-Syslog or SNMP-Traps can be imported and processed too.

A multitude of media is available to indicate any faults occurring. The TS400-DM operator modules will give you up-to-date information in plain text about all system status and fault indication messages. Any alerts may also be sent in form voice message, fax, SMS, email or pager message to predefined groups. Local nodes are connected via the usual networking KAT 5 and are therefore easily integrated into the exsisting infrastructure.


The system comprises the following primary components:


TS400 CPU TS400 CPU Processor

Master control unit with 500MHz clock frequency and 512 MB RAM. All events are recorded in log files and can be viewed and evaluated. The CPU can manage up to 128 nodes and 16 TS400-DM operator modules. It ensures communication between all system components using standard network technology (Ethernet Cat.5). The CPU is also the platform for the visualisation / SCADA.


TS400-DM TS400 DM Operator module LAN

Thanks to its flat design, this display- and control module can be mounted directly onto the front panels, or alternatively onto the work surface via a stand. The TS400 DM Operator module LAN displays all messages in plaintext. When an alarm arises, the integrated acoustic alarm is also sounded. The panel buttons can be used to acknowledge alarms and view the log file containing the last 1,000 events. The TS400-DM Operator module LAN is integrated in the network and supplied by power over ethernet.


TS400 DM TS400 DM Operator module serial

Thanks to its flat design, this display- and control module can be mounted directly onto the front panels, or alternatively onto the work surface via a stand. The TS400 DM Operator module serial displays all messages in plaintext. When an alarm arises, the integrated acoustic alarm is also sounded. The panel buttons can be used to acknowledge alarms and view the log file containing the last 1,000 events. The TS400-DM Operator module serial is connected to the serial interface of the TS400 CPU Processor.


TS400-Fernanzeige TS400 Remote display unit

The TS400 remote display unit is a large-size LED display unit for displaying alarm text that can be read from a distance of up to 80 metres.


TS400 Controller TS400 Fieldbus controller

Positioned upstream, the TS400 Fieldbus controller is the intelligent starting point of each and every node. Up to 128 nodes can be used in the system. Each of these are supplied locally. Each controller can manage 2000 digital or 1000 analogue I/Os. The connection to the TS400 CPU Processor is realised with Ethernet. The TS400 Fielbus controller is expanded with the TS400 Local in- output modules.


TS400 IO TS400 Local in- output modules

Thanks to the integration of tried and trusted WAGO I/O technology, a broad range of inputs and outputs are available. Mostly all variants belonging to the 750 series can be used. This means an optimal, space-saving and cost-saving solution is available for all voltage variants. The data transfer to the TS400 Feldbus controller is realised with an internal bus.


TS400 IO TS400 Autonomous input modules

The VOICE agent can be used as an autonomous input module for the TS400 system. By doing so, you can achieve an autonomous and redundant alarm generation route in addition to the input acquisition. The network is used to connect to the TS400 CPU processor module.


TS400 GPRS IO TS400 GPRS in- output modules

The TS400 GPRS in- output modules are used to connect remote stations or remote infrastructure. EX-101 expansion modules are available for the MT-101 controller with integrated modem. The connection to the TS400 CPU Processor is realised over the GPRS network.




Design

Possible mounting options:

TS400 CPU Processor: 35mm DIN rail or on a rack tray
Modem: 35mm DIN rail or on a rack tray
PSU: Din rail 35mm
TS400 Fieldbus controller and Local in-output modules: 35mm DIN rail
TS400 Autonomous input modules: 35mm DIN rail
TS400 GPRS in-output modules: 35mm DIN rail
TS400 DM operator modules: Front mounting or with 75x75mm VESA monitor stand
TS400 Remote display unit: Wall or ceiling

Connections:

The connections to the nodes are made using network cables (min. Cat. 5) in a star configuration from the switch. Standard technology is used and existing cabling can be integrated. However, of the alarm network is to fully separated, a cabling system can be installed from the CPU which is fully independent of the company network

Visualisation


The TS400 offers various possibilities to present and visualise alarms, actual values and operating conditions. The trending function example given is prepaired to manage analogue values. By filling in a figure in the field "Trend" the value ist automatically shown on the page "Trending" in the main menue:


TS400 Visulaisierung




The detailed configuration is entered by clicking on the graph. In this sub-menue it is possible to edit the graph, export the values as CSV file or query past values.
Due to the data retention the trending funcion is also dedicated for the temperature recording of cold storages according to the HACCP concept:


TS400 Visulaisierung




Also digital signals/alarms can be visualised. The alarms or status signals can be shown on background images or ground plans. This overview enables a quick location of the alarm source:


TS400 Visulaisierung




Moreover, it is possible to visualise analogue values example given the actual temperature of the server room. Integrating switch buttons in the visualisation allows the user to control digital outputs.




Programming

Since all the programming takes place fully in the browser, there is no need to purchase software and updates. The configuration comes with graphics and is menu-based. The system can be programmed using any network PC, or a laptop connected to the switch. Participants are divided into groups for the purpose of alerting. Each entry may have a short text message (SMS) or long fax message as well as a language profile assigned to it. Otherwise, the TS400 will create a voice messages using the built in Text-to-Speech-Engine.
The fault indicating system TS400 includes a timer with numerous integrated functions. There are channels for weekdays, public holidays and other special days. These channels may be used to control how the alerts are being transmitted. There is also an option of disabling inputs or to switch outputs directly. Outputs are controlled according to fault indicating procedure DIN 19235 or via direct links.

The entire unit can be maintained and controlled remotely by APS systems AG
