Pertronic Light Pipe Display Units (PDB12 and PDB8) are repeater / mimic displays that connect to the RS-485 Mimic Bus of the following Pertronic products:
The PDB12 provides:
Eight-way display boards (PDB8) and eight-way relay boards (F100ZDRLY) may be daisy-chained to the ancillary TPIC bus, expanding the number of LEDs up to the maximum capacity of the fire panel or network card. LED and relay outputs are mapped in the fire panel configuration as LED outputs.
The Ancillary TPIC Bus is supervised for faults, and supplies DC power to daisy-chained LED and relay boards.
Pertronic light pipe LED display units are designed for two configurations. The boards may be installed in Pertronic fire panels or Pertronic mimic cabinets with the light pipes protruding through holes in a display board, to create a local or remote index display. In this configuration, unused LEDs may be covered with individual blanking plugs. Pertronic Industries provide a range of cabinets for remote index displays.
Alternatively, Pertronic Light Pipe LED Display Units may be used in custom-built LED displays. Each display unit provides a set of open drain (pull-down”) outputs for driving remote mounted LEDs, via a header connector on the PCB.
A cable assembly is available for remote mounted LEDs. The assembly includes 500 mm of cable, LEDs, and mounting bezels, and is available with green, yellow, or green LEDs.
