The Remote Tableau Drive Unit PTU288-2 allows for the control of LED display tableaus or synoptic remote tableaus. In this way, the events of a Fire Detection Control Panel Series BC600, Series BC216 or BC016, or of an Extinguishing Control Panel Series LC600 or Series LC216 can be optically displayed. In addition, a built-in buzzer signals the alarm or fault condition of the control panel. Up to 3 LED Display Fields LAB48-x or LED Connection Modules LAM48-1 can be connected to the remote tableau drive unit in any combination. In accordance with the parameterisation, the LEDs can be used to display the conditions of detectors, detector zones, actuations, actuation elements, alarming devices, transmitting devices, extinguishing systems or flooding zones as well as the most important system conditions of the fire detection control panel (e.g., summary alarm, fault condition or disablement condition). If needed, it is also possible to combine several events into a summary display. Furthermore, the PTU288-2 has 5 freely parameterisable control inputs that can be used to operate the control panel. The remote tableau drive unit can be connected to a Fire Detection Control Panel Series BC600 via the INFO bus, the extended INFO bus EP or – after installation of a Serial Interface SIF622-1 – via the powerful Signal bus. It can also be connected to Control Panels Series BC216 or BC016, via the INFO bus. In a Control Panel BC016, a Serial Interface Module SIM016-3 is necessary therefor. The PC software PARSOFT is used to parameterise the remote tableau drive unit via the USB interface. The componentry is prepared for direct installation into the LED Display Tableau LAT288-1 or LAT288-1CE. The componentry can also be mounted in any housing in the LST standard grid, using the supplied mounting parts.
