MS-3 adapter module is an electronic digital device intended for Contact-ID format message delivery according to RS-485 protocol from the Rubezh addressable system to the announcement system via Lonta-202, Lonta Optima or Basalt radio channels produced by Altonika as well as to the announcement system produced by "Oko".
Power supply 12 V or from USB PC
Number of attachment interfaces:
FACIE RUBEZH brand - RS-485, electrically isolated;
RS-202TD transmitter RS-485, non electrically isolated;
USB for configuring

RS-485 interface cable length, no more than 1000 m
Length of USB interface cable, up to 2 m
Overall dimensions of the module, no more than 8412537 mm
Weight, no more than 200 g
Operating temperature range from 0 to +40
Average service life 10 years

In particular, MS-3 adapter module is intended for Rubezh addressable system integration with Lonta-202 system.

MS-3 adapter module collects events from the Rubezh addressable control and indicating panels and deliver them to the RS-202TD-RR transmitter.

Rubezh control and indicating panels output is connected to MS-3 adapter module input via RS-485 interface. MS-3 adapter module converts data received from FDCP RUBEZH and transmits them over RS-485 protocol to communicator transmitter RS-202TD-RR for further transmission to monitoring station equipment. 

Adapter module MS-3 is powered from power supply +12 V or USB-terminal of the computer. The time of AM technical availability for operation after power-up is no more than 1 s. On the front side of the device there are LEDs intended to display the current state of the adapter module.

LED indicator "MODE":

  • standby indication at a rate of 1 Hz.

LED indicator RS-485 "1":

  • when there is no exchange with fire alarm control and indicating panels, the LEDs are off; 
  • when there is exchange with FACIE, the LED is blinking at a rate of 10 Hz;

LED indicator RS-485 "2":

  • when there is data exchange with transmitter, LED is steady on;
  • when there is no data exchange with transmitter, LED is off.

For connection of FACIE (fire alarm control and indicating equipment) included in Rubezh addressable system to Lonta-202 system, the following steps shall be taken:

  • teach RS-202TD-RR communicator transmitter in the RS-202PN centralized surveillance office (as per Operation Manuals);
  • connect MS-3adapter module to FACIE of the RUBEZH addressable system over RS-485 interface.
  • connect MS-3 adapter module to RS-202TD-RR communicator transmitter over RS-485 interface.
Adapter module MS-3 should be preconfigured before the installation. For configuring, it is necessary to connect MS-3 adapter module to a computer via USB interface and install SW FireSec on the computer. Launch Firesec administrator. Add MS-3 adapter module to the devices list, set its address within the range of 1 to 100. Before saving configuration make sure that all control and indicating units are listed, otherwise scanning of the device not included in the configuration will not be done. Select MS-3 adapter module in the devices list, open the Device menu, go to USB sub-menu, choose the Save configuration on the device item.ms3.jpg
